    Default gfxmenu - new grub penguin design

    I just replaced the winter scene with this, penguins still work too


    Steps I took:
    1. open super terminal
    2. cd /boot
    3. mkdir message1
    4. cd message1
    5. cpio -i < ../message
    6. exit
    7. open /boot/message1/pback.jpg in gimp
    8. Used a background image 800 x 600 (same size as pback.jpg )
    9. Used gimp to design visual objects to align with those in pback.jpg
    10. saved out as flat image (no layers) as pback.jpg
    11. exit gimp
    12. open terminal again
    13. cd /boot/message1
    14. ls >> filelist
    15. cpio -o < filelist > ../message
    16. exit & reboot

    Don't know how to change the penguins positions but upon reboot
    my new grub display comes up with the menu and penguins moving intact.

    hope this is of interest.

    Don't know how I missed your previous post, sorry. Glad you got it to work. I had planned to make a script that would do it on the fly with ability to switch between a series of backgrounds (maybe one for each month) but never got to it.
