[SOLVED] Unwanted grub menu on boot?

Postby Taffman on Thu Jan 24, 2013 5:13 pm

I have reciently installed Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 32-bit as the only O/S on my PC.
Everything has been fine until today, for some reason after a reboot i am now seeing a Grub menu offering to boot into Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 32-bit, Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 32-bit recovery mode, Memtest or Windows Vista.

I dont know where this came from as Windows Vista is no longer installed on this PC.
I'd like to get back to the situation where I boot straight into Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 32-bit again, non grub menu.

Anyone know how I do that?

Where would I find Grub Customizer ?

Not available in Software Manager.

1.
Code: Select all
$ sudo pluma /etc/default/grub

Use leafpad, pluma, or whatever test editor

2.
Code: Select all
GRUB_TIMEOUT=0

Change to zero.

3.
Code: Select all
$ sudo update-grub
