    Question Grub-Customizer

    Hi

    Anyone have success in launching grub-customizer? I guess I should edit GRUB config manually (how?) FGLRX displays first splash screen wrong resolution!

    I get this error;

    Code:
    (grub-customizer:14368): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
    &

    Code:
    /usr/bin/grub-customizer: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libgiomm-2.4.so.1: undefined symbol: g_notification_get_type

    Neither grub2 nor plymouth use fglrx. Fglrx is only in use when you get to the graphical session (Xorg).

    I get this error;

    Code:
    (grub-customizer:14368): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
    &

    Code:
    /usr/bin/grub-customizer: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libgiomm-2.4.so.1: undefined symbol: g_notification_get_type
    Where did you install it from? It seems to be compiled against a different GNOME version (libgiomm/glibmm2 in particular).
    Code:
    rpm -qi grub-customizer
    zypper lr -d
    And how did you try to start it? The first error message would indicate you used "su".
    Don't!
    Use "kdesu", "gnomesu", or "xdg-su -c", those are designed for starting GUI applications as different user.

    kwrite /etc/default/grub
    change "GRUB_GFXMODE=auto" to preferred resolution. Save & close, then;
    Code:
    
    grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    No idea if will work?

    This should change your boot menu's resolution, yes.

    But you can also use YaST->System->Boot Loader->Boot Loader Options.

    That maybe but first splash screen is now wrong resolution since installing propriety fglrx, I've observed similar problems with Nvidia cards, must be buggy somehow?

    That's probably because the radeon driver is missing or even blacklisted in the initrd. At least that's the case with nvidia/nouveau and necessary for the nvidia driver to work.

    Ok, that's the latest version for Tumbleweed (built after the GNOME update), so should work I suppose.

    What version of libgiomm do you have then?
    Code:
    rpm -qi libgiomm-2_4-1
    Maybe you still have the old 13.1 version (2.38) of that?

    Code:
    3 | AMD/ATI-FGLRX              | AMD/ATI-FGLRX              | Yes     | Yes     |   99     | rpm-md | http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx/openSUSE_13.1/                               |
    One note regarding your repos: You're using the fglrx repo for 13.1. Better change the URL to the Tumbleweed repo:
    http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fgl...SE_Tumbleweed/

    Hi
    Just a comment, the code in grub-customizer is a year old (a lot changes...) and the latest version is now at 4.0.6. But in saying that, I wonder (not having used said package), is it not just a 'clone' of what YaST bootloader can do now?

    @fleamour you should see if the package builder can update to the latest version?

    Well, I haven't used that package either, but you cannot move, remove or rename, edit or create grub2's menuentries with YaST at all.

    @fleamour you should see if the package builder can update to the latest version?
    Might be the best idea of course, but the older version should at least start.

    @fleamour:
    Apparently the symbol "g_notification_get_type" should be part of libgio-2_0-0 AFAICS (and it isn't yet in 13.1's version), so please check that you have the Tumbleweed version from that installed as well.
    Code:
    rpm -qi libgio-2_0-0
