Punky,

Exactly what do you wish to do with the GFX GRUB image? Also, what version of Linux Mint are you using? Please post back with some more info so it will be easier to help you out.

Hello Punky

Why don't You just download the image and replace it with the one You have right now?

I have Daryna and I do not know if Elyssa works the same way, but You can check it out.

Edit the file menu.lst that You might find in Your /boot/grub/ folder...

Read my post on how to get the picture in Daryna, and You might just add the line if it's missing in Elyssa.

To replace the GFX images here is how.
Navigate to /etc/grub/
Unpackage the file called message.elyssa by double clicking it and extract all of its contents into a folder called message

Also change the file called message.elyssa to message.elyssa1 or something different.

now in there you have images, change back.jpg to whatever you want your image to be.
Now open a terminal
type the following

Code: Select all

cd /etc/grub/message/

Your now in the folder where you made your changes. Now enter this

Code: Select all

sudo ls . | cpio -o > /etc/grub/message.elyssa



Restart and enjoy. :)

P.S. If you just want to use that theme you posted or another that is already made. Here is how
Place the theme you want in the /etc/grub folder. You can use the open as root in the right click here.
Now open a terminal. and Type

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

Now on line 17 you should see gfxmenu=/etc/grub/message.elyssa
change the filename at the end to what you want: With the theme you linked to that would be: 51031-message.linuxhack
Save that and your done.
