    Re: Customize your Grub2 screen

    Simplified it a little bit but, I still like the background. I'm going to leave that for a while.
    This is the Grub on Raring too.

    Re: Customize your Grub2 screen

    With today's update of grub-pc in Raring, I accepted the installer's version (which one should always do to get the full benefit of the update) of /etc/default/grub and /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme and then modified them again.
    In 05_debian_theme the font colors moved from after line 108 to after line 114.

    If you ever encounter an error while either the system is updating grub or you enter sudo update-grub you should make the 06_custom file unexecutable and then make 10_linux and 30_os-prober executable.
    sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/06_custom
    sudo chmod +x /etc/grub.d/10_linux
    sudo chmod +x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober

    Always remember to enter sudo update-grub or the changes will not take effect. You do not want to re-boot with an error coming from grub. If you do you will probably be looking at grub recovery.
    Then make the changes to the updated files.
    Since Raring is still pre-release I will not update the community wiki until it is released in April.

    Today's Grub update to 2.00-13ubuntu3 involved /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme which I selected "Y" to "install the package maintainer's version" to obtain the benefits of the update.

    Then I edited the file and inserted my font colors below line 114. You can do a search for
    Code:
    echo "if background_image `make_system_path_relative_to_its_root "${1}"`; then"
    which is on line 114 and re-insert the font colors after that line:
    Code:
            echo " set color_normal=cyan/black"
            echo " set color_highlight=light-cyan/black"
