    Re: Customizing Grub2 boot menu

    I installed Lucid today and was able to get my custom grub screen looking good!
    Thanks for the tutorial! I had it set to 640x480 with Karmic, but lost it when I did the fresh install.
    That looked like the size it was meant to be, but this time I made it 1920x1200 and it looks great.

    Edit: The screen actually looks great and looks as one would expect it to look.
    It is a huge picture, but the box is in the right place and the font size is good.
    I wouldn't want a size 21 font or something like that on there anyway.

    So, no complaints! I am good! And the bootup screen is awesome in my opinion!

    Thanks!

    Re: Customizing Grub2 boot menu

    I guess I posted the above post before I created my tutorial for creating a super nice maintenance free grub2 menu, with ranch hand's knowledge.
    It has the new font too, so that the text is no longer so small.

    There are several examples of what my screen looks like with just these 3 entries:
    • Lucid Lynx
    • Lucid Lynx (Recovery Mode)
    • Windows 7


    Although I have 3 kernels installed, the top selection always boots into the most recently installed kernel.
    It also never has to be modified. Unless of course you want to change the background picture. My screen size is 1920x1200.
    Man, this is an old thread.
