Welcome toÂ Oneiric OcelotÂ a.k.a Ubuntu 11.10
Ubuntu is a community developed operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. Whether you use it at home, at school or at work Ubuntu contains all the applications you’ll ever need, from word processing and email applications, to web server software and programming tools.
Ubuntu is and always will be free of charge. You do not pay any licensing fees. You can download, use and share Ubuntu with your friends, family, school or business for absolutely nothing.
Today I have changed the grub splash image of ubuntu 11.10. The steps are given below.
Open the terminal
$mv $HOME/nebulae.jpg $HOME/nebula.jpg
$sudo mv $HOME/nebula.jpg /usr/share/images/grub/nebula.jpg
enter your root password to place the nebula in your grubs boot images….
now were going to remove the old desktop base script and replace it with a more stellar one….
do this block of code to remove.
sudo rm /usr/share/desktop-base/grub_background.sh
write new script 4 background on boot cat > /usr/share/desktop-base/grub_background.sh << EOF WALLPAPER=/usr/share/images/grub/nebula.jpg COLOR_NORMAL=light-green/black COLOR_HIGHLIGHT=green/light-gray EOF update-grub exit and press return to exit god mode, reboot to test.... it is a 1280x1024 image, and might require editing a file i already edited to change the menu size to fit the image.but for the most part this was a nagging hidden system when trying to edit /etc/grub.d/05_debian* only to have a strange variable over ride what you set. and this is what you get when bob punishes your boot loader settings
