  1. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    :guitar: Cool! If it can be done why not do it? :P
  2. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    Yes, it must be the DVI connector causing the need to use a different font.
    I always had to create the font and point to it in /etc/default/grub.

    As I mentioned I used to use this to create the...
  3. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    What you customized your Grub screen too? :)

    Edit: Well actually Arch and Ubuntu do handle grub a little differently e.g. the font colors are in /etc/default/grub.
  4. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    @guber2, that will definitely not work. I tried font size 18 like you have and everything was huge again. Only about 4 lines displayed.

    So, I tried 12 and that was still too big. I got vertical...
  5. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    Hi guber2!
    I used to use this on Ubuntu and Arch Linux:

    sudo grub-mkfont --output=/boot/grub/DejaVuSansMono.pf2 --size=24 /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/DejaVuSansMono.ttf

    Then added a...
  6. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    If you want the ability to restart and shutdown from the Grub menu, add these to the bottom of /etc/grub.d/06_custom:

    menuentry "System restart" {
    echo "System rebooting..."
    reboot
    }...
  7. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    There is one thing that Arch Linux does when there is an update to grub that requires intervention and that is it makes all the files in /etc/grub.d/ executable.

    [cavsfan@Le-Beast grub.d]$ ls -l...

    My previous picture hosting site went down, so here is the most current one I have on Arch Linux:

  9. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    Just use your native screen resolution and that will work just fine for the grub background image.
    I thought the resolution had to be 1597x1198 like in the example picture but, it does not.

    PNG...
  10. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    Actually whichever Linux system Manjaro or Xubuntu is installed last would be in control of Grub at that time.
    Because Grub is installed on the MBR (Master Boot Record) during installation.

  11. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    *Update: If you use an HDMI to HDMI cable, there's is no need to create the font, add the GRUB_FONT= line or uncommenting out the GRUB_GFXMODE= and matching it your monitor's native resolution in...
  12. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    Whenever Arch installs a newer version of Grub2, it does not update grub but, it does make the original files executable.

    So, rather than leave it as is, what I have done is make 10_linux and...

  14. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    I tried to add the Fallback and LTS kernel lines to grub when I first installed Arch but, must have have not gotten it right.
    But I have got it down now and am booted up on the LTS kernel and...
  15. [Arch Linux] Re: Custom Grub for Arch in multi-boot system that is maintenance free

    PNG pictures always work for the background picture whereas JPG pictures sometimes display when grub is updated but not on the screen at boot time.

    So, instead of wasting time on JPGs, just edit...
