Dan
without going now to the causes why you have mismatches in the grub pkgs, try
Code: Select all
sudo update-grub

Schoelje,
You missed my last post.
I have a different error this time.
Still no grub in default.
Do I have to reboot after using update-grub?
Thanks
Dan

There's more than one thing happening here.
I see this message:
Gkr-Message: secret service operation failed: The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files
And a link that might solve it: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=572137
I'm afraid this is not a DPM problem (which would be easy to solve).

Have you tried DPM on LMDE in Virtualbox?
If that works you could try making your changes and see when or if DPM breaks.

Got rid of the one problem by installing gnome-keyring.
I didn't want anything gnome in my system but it got rid of the error.

Here is what is left when I run dpm -d

Tries to open /etc/default/grub, but you still don't have it, and I can't explain why not.

I know I have grub.
Not sure why I don't have what it is looking for.
Can I reinstall grub without making my system non bootable?

I really don't know.
Here's my default grub file.
Maybe, if you save that in /etc/default/grub and run update-grub, you're able to get it working, but I don't have a clue.
Code: Select all
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
#   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

# Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs
# This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains
# the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)
#GRUB_BADRAM="0x01234567,0xfefefefe,0x89abcdef,0xefefefef"

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
#GRUB_TERMINAL=console

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
#GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480

# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux
#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries
#GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"

# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start

Created a grub text file and put your code in there.
It worked.
Thanks for sticking with me on this.
Now on to bigger and better things.

Hi everyone,

I'd like to thank Schoelje for the great work he's done on DPM. This project is no longer a Mint Community one, it's going upstream.

To continue to help and follow up on DPM, please visit https://github.com/Schoelje/debian-plymouth-manager
