Change GRUB timeout /etc/default/grub.ucf-old

hi everyone,

After one of the updates to LMDE 3 I was surprised to see my GRUB boot menu showing for a few seconds again. I had changed GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 in /etc/default/grub a long time ago.

So I went looking for /etc/default/grub and found it had been renamed grub.ucf-old.

Where do I go to change the boot timeout back to zero?

Best regards,

Hi again,

just to add a little more information on this. I copied /etc/default/grub.ucf-old back to /etc/default/grub and ran “sudo update-grub” and now it boots without displaying the GRUB menu again.

I was sure a few days ago when I last checked that update-grub itself was also missing and I assumed that there was a new way of handling this sort of thing. Perhaps I was mistaken.

Best regards,
