I want to install the GRUB2-Layout of Fedora in Mint.

(I'm a new user, so I can't upload images. :( The image is here: http://ryanlerch.fedorapeople.org/Selection_045.png)

Does anybody know, how I can do that?

That is Fedora beefymiracle GRUB2 theme. I'm not using Mint so no idea if that is available from Mint repos. If it is, install it. If it's not in the repos, get it from here. Unpack the archive, inside you will find a folder named beefymiracle (containing all theme files), place it in /usr/share/grub/themes/. Next, change GRUB theme:
Open (as root or sudo) /etc/default/grub and look for a line containing GRUB_THEME. Edit like this:


save, then run:



grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Works on my Archlinux install.

in my /etc/default/grub is no line with GRUB_THEME... There are only the following lines: GRUB_DEFAULT=0 #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT=10 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR='lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian' GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" should I create that line anyway? – Jere Apr 19 '13 at 12:28
