Mengedit tampilan grub linux mint 8

Terkadang bosan juga melihat tampilan grub yang gitu-gitu aja,
makanya klo diganti mungkin akan sedikit lebih seru kali yupz,,,,

Oke,
mari kita mulai dengan mengedit grub.cfg dengan menggunakan nano atau jika anda lebih senang menggunakan text editor lain boleh diganti dengan text editor kesayangan anda dan jangan lupa di backup grub.cfg sebelum memulai. masuk ke terminal lalu ketikkan :
sudo nano /boot/grub/grub.cfg
lalu masukkan password anda,
maka anda akan melihat tampilan seperti ini :

cari menuentry “Linux Mint 8 Helena, linux 2.6.31-14-generic (/dev/sda5)”
ubah tulisan yang berada di dalam tanda kutip sesuai selera anda sebagai contoh :
menuentry “Linux nu paling cool”

dan juga menu entry yang lain yang ingin anda ubah.
Lalu setelah selesai diedit kemudian save dengan menekan Ctrl – O lalu enter kemudian exit dengan menekan Ctrl – X.
ok, sekarang anda telah selesai mengedit menu di grub.

Lalu bagaimana mengedit gambar background defaultnya?
Mari kita bahas cara mengganti backgroundnya, secara default background yang dapat digunakan di grub adalah yang berekstensi .png, jadi jika anda ingin mengganti background grub di linux mint anda harus menggunakan gambar yang berekstensi .png.

Tapi bagaimana klo gambar yang saya punya berekstensi .jpg?
Gunakan gimp untuk mengconvert gambar tersebut dan atur ukurannya menjadi :
lebar = 640 pixels
tinggi = 480 pixels

lalu letakkan di /boot/grub
kemudian edit lagi grub.cfg dengan nano,
cari baris ini :
if background_image /boot/grub/Orphen.png ; then
ganti Orphen.png sesuai dengan nama gambar anda.

Huft….
Akhirnya beres juga,
sekarang restart komputer anda dan lihat perubahannya.
Jreng….jreng…..jreng….
