    GRUB Customisation


    I read a while ago that I can actually customise GRUB. The page did not offer any explanation and now, I would like to learn how... By customisation, I mean the eye candy... I want it to have a cool background.. Can I also make the text appear differently? Thanks guys..

    You could probably start by installing Grub Customizer. That'll let you tweak your settings and do all kinds of stuff. You can find it in Synaptic Package Manager.

    You can set the background image for Grub. Take a look at the site below. It is specific to Ubuntu derivatives and Grub2. You can also do this with Grub Legacy but it is more complex to set up and more limited. You don't indicate which Linux or Grub you are using.

    Not sure what you mean by 'text appear differently', different fonts?

    By different, I mean that the text does not appear in the top row. It can appear in the middle or as icons?? Something like that..
