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


I've managed to get this working now. There are only a couple of things I can think of that I did differently to last time:

- Created a new image on Fedora Core 5 GIMP 2.2.10 (rather than Windows GIMP 2.2.11) - Indexed the image (14) and saved as splash.xpm - then ran "gzip -S .gz splash.xpm", rather than saving directly in GIMP as a .xpm.gz

Thanks for the help!

Hi Mairin,

I'd tried that - I'd found the same tutorial in various different versions across the Net.

Guess what?  I followed the same document and it worked perfectly from
the first try... (http://fedora.nicubunu.ro/temp/splash.xpm.gz)

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 used whatever Gimp is in updates for FC5, 2.2.12-1 and worked as expected.

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

I guess we can have a look at it, you must be doing something wrong.

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