Re: Themeing GRUB (was Re: Any theme planned for FC 6)

Hi Mairin,

I'd tried that - I'd found the same tutorial in various different versions across the Net. It might help to know that the image I created was in GIMP 2.2.11, developed on both an FC5 and Windows XP system under GIMP (I believe the tutorial was on GIMP 1.x so I'm not sure if file formats have changed or anything silly like that.) I'd edited the original splash.xpm.gz image from Fedora, indexed it to 14 colours, and saved back to a splash.xpm.gz image in the original location (/boot/grub I believe.)

All I could get Grub to do was display a black screen with white text (even restoring the original image didn't make any difference.) I'd tried editing the menu.lst file to point to a different image - no joy.

I'd also tried creating a new image, 640x480, filling it in solid red, indexing to 14 colours - but even that didn't show.

If need be I could send the image for someone to take a look at?

P.S. to Diana: I hadn't said you were unwilling to discuss, I was just commenting that no-one had replied - in fact, before Leon's post, there's been no messages from anyone about anything on here :P lol.

Hi Andy,

Actually, saying that I've just remembered it wasn't the boot screens per se I posted about, but the Grub boot loader screen (background.) I didn't get it sorted, the machine it's on is a dev box which I haven't logged on to for a couple of weeks - but AFAIK I'm still trying to find the answer to getting a custom Grub background working.

I'm going to ask around and see if I can get more information about that.

Ok, so one of the installer team guys pointed me to this article on customizing GRUB's boot screen:
