[SOLVED] How to change back grub to show me OSs with small icons next to them?

Post by MrT »

After upgrading to LM20, I have had a few, overall quite acceptable issues, most of which I was helped to address.
I have only one minor request left in the tank. Up until the upgrade, Grub was showing a nice page with nice fonts and little icons next to Mint and Windows 10. Now it is just the basic look with 4 entries. It works, but I would like to set it back to how it was as it appeals to my sense of aesthetics. I have Grub Customizer, but I do not want to change colors, or add background images, just the basic stuff plus the little icons next to the OSs.

Could anyone suggest how to put it back to the previous look, please?

Thank you.

If I recall correctly, this should do it:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install grub2-theme-mint

All in all, horse sense simply makes sense.

Thank you! My nice GRUB theme disappeared after the 20 in place upgrade. Glad to have it back.
