Description:

Simply a grub splash, 14 color optimized width no noisy dottered effects.

To install, copy the xpm.gz to the /boot/grub directory,then edit as root /boot/grub/menu.lst
(this name could change depending to distributions)

so, add after the timeout, the following line edited to fit your needs

splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/ubuntu_simply_splash.xpm.gz

Have fun.

GRUB

How to install a grub theme:

  1. Extract the theme to /boot/grub/themes/

  2. Edit /etc/default/grub file. Find the line starting with "#GRUB_THEME" and change it to "GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub/themes/[THEME_FOLDER]/[theme.txt]" (replace [THEME_FOLDER] ; [theme.txt] is probably OK ; remove "[]" brackets)

  3. Run sudo update-grub
