Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am just wondering that 'How I can change the title on very top for Grub' - where it's written like 'GNU Grub version 1.99-21ubuntu3.4'? I am not asking for the menu entry, or to change labels of menus.

I just wish to write something as I want, at the very top in Grub menu.

Anyone, please help me.

Thanking you.

Sadly, you cannot do that through configuration.

More precisely, this is a localized string "GNU GRUB version %s", which resides in /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod.

A few solutions, if you really want to change it:

  • Build your own packages, with a patch in the source code (see const char *msg in grub-core/normal/main.c) or in the po/ locales;
  • Modify the appropriate po file with, for example, poedit, then recompile it to an mo file and put it in /boot/grub/locale.
