Re: Is the Grub Customizer a no, no?

It's a good thing that the author of GC has participated in this thread (thanks for that). But I still think that it's a bad idea to complicate such an essential part of your operating system, just for the sake of a few things that can easily be achieved otherwise. Without such complications. If som...

Re: backlight problem with nvidia chipset with kernel 4.13 (but works fine with 4.10)

First install the nvidia-384 driver, by means of Driver Manager. Reboot and then try the 4.13.0-26 kernel.

Note that the first boot with the new kernel/driver combo might take unusually long.

Re: Avoid update to kernel 4.13

As 4.13.0-26 in some cases causes problems, you might consider rolling back to 4.4.0-109, which also contains the Meltdown fixes.
