    Re: Post Your Grub 2 Themes

    Here's a link on Google Drive. Again, the guide is no longer maintained. Hopefully it works well with the latest version of GRUB.

    I've updated my sig to reflect the new link.

    Also, if you followed the 3rd Edition (which you should use now), from Page 69 of the Guide:

    Yeah, unfortunately you cannot get rid if it, but you can theme it just as with the other elements of the GRUB menu.

    OP, please allow me to post this here as I believe more GRUB2 themers will see it here than if I created a new thread. Thanks.

    Re: Post Your Grub 2 Themes

    Someone recently reported that the install.sh script did not work with GRUB 2.00. While the guide is for 1.99, themes should still work un-modified on 2.00, so I've patch the install.sh script to...

    Here is the patched install.sh script. There were several other changes to GRUB 2.00 grub-mkconfig script.

    I've also included it in the main download archive.

    I built it on Squeeze when it was at beta 3. Built went smoothly and I got the default theme. The theme is not too shabby, but not as good as some of the more recent ones posted here.

    Re: Grub 2 Won't Use My Theme

    I never used BURG, but I'm pretty sure they won't work in GRUB. While it will certainly look quite different, you should be able to use the graphics to create a GRUB2 theme.
