    Re: Post Your Grub 2 Themes

    A very simple Grub2 theme is part of my artwork proposal for Debian and can be found here:

    http://wiki.debian.org/DebianArt/The...Grub_2_-_Theme

    It is supposed to look similar to the default GDM3 login screen. It is based on an Ubuntu theme
    created by Jo Shields at http://retro.apebox.org/grubthemes/

    The guide at http://www.4shared.com/file/lFCl6wxL/grub_guidetar.html
    was very helpful. Thanks a lot!

    regards

    Have patient my friend, a default theme will be included in GRUB 2.00 and is already included in the bzr branch of GRUB, presently at GRUB 2.00~Beta3. But I'm guessing, this will never be upgraded in Oneiric or releases prior to it.
    The Definitive Guide to Theming GRUB2 is here.

    Well, I just finished a temporary theme based on the definitive guide, and using the demo theme included... I am really surprised this hasn't gotten more attention... a nice GUI should be made to do all this stuff.... But, anyway... at least it can be done!!

    An Ubuntu Grub theme is being worked on by the devs for the release of Grub 2.0 (as opposed to the current Grub 1.99).

    Re: Post Your Grub 2 Themes

    When I choose an option on the menu it goes to the terminal screen, but I have "quiet splash" as kernel options, so it really looks like something went wrong (as a black screen in a box pops up).... what are some alternatives? Can, I just have a fullscreen intermediate image? can I just bypass the terminal displaying? Can an "icon" pop up that says something like "Loading (os name)"
    though I like having a nicer GRUB SCREEN than just a background and colored fonts....

    Re: Post Your Grub 2 Themes

    Hi cecilpierce!
    Thanks for the feedback!

    I just like to add that the artwork has changed a bit in the recent weeks.

    First of all, the Grub2 theme I was writing about in my original message is this one:
    http://wiki.debian.org/DebianArt/The...Grub_2_-_Theme



    I stopped working on this theme because it was trying to look like the old GDM of Gnome <3.4. Debian Wheezy plans to come with Gnome 3.4, so this wasn't really a good choice. Of course this version is still available under the above link and free for anyone to use or tweak.

    My new Grub2 theme tries to fit in better with Gnome >= 3.4.

    After you downloaded it, I have changed the background from the dark texture (shown in your screenshot) to the lighter hexagon one shown here:



    Please download the package again to get that background.

    Yes. I did not implement the workaround mentioned on page 80 of the great documentation by Towheed Mohammed:
    http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=78121

    So the icon is chosen by grub according to the class that is registered in the menuentry in /boot/grub/grub.cfg (see the guide at page 51). It seems that not all operating systems are registered correctly by Grub2.

    best wishes

    Thanks Ulrich for the update, I have two hard drives so sda has Grub and sdb has Burg, burg is a lot easier to change things on the fly, maybe some day grub will have all that fancy stuff.
