Gfxgrub (!?!?)

Postby jam12 » Thu Mar 27, 2008 3:34 pm

Hi guys,
Its been really frustrating that I haven't been able to change Grub's background and have finally found the problem which is gfxmenu=/etc/grub/ . I put a # in front of this line (so grub ignores it) and the GRUB screen was black with a blue box containing OS options - I guess this is normal Grub.

Now, how do I configure the file? I want to get rid of the background and configure the text colours to contrast with my made background. If only Linux Mint have a GUI to customize the gfx settings.

- Jam.

There is a gui program to edit your grub, its called "startup manager", just do a search in Synaptic and you will find it.
Or you can install it through the console by entering

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install startupmanager

Return to “Installation & Boot”
