I wanted to change a default GRUB2 because it's to small for me. I downloaded ubuntu font and tried to convert it to *.pf2:

grub-mkfont -s -16 --range=0x0-0x7f -o ./ubufont.pf2 ubuntufont.ttf

but it showed some 'errors' and font wasn't created:

So how can I change default GRUB2 font to Ubuntu font? Cheers

For some reason I prefer Grub Customizer. Safe and clear usage.

First check this.

Installation via terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

Thanks for the answer but I dont really like Grub Customizer. But thought - 'Ok, maybe this time it will work' and installed in on my Virtualbox Ubuntu. Changed font (did ONLY that), restarted Ubuntu. Now I cant even run my Ubuntu on Virtualbox, can't see GRUB, only black screen :d That's why I don't like Grub Customizer ... I like to know what exactly I have to do with my OS, even if it will be a little more difficult. Anyway - thanks –  Brian Brown Aug 24 '13 at 10:03
    
So strange. I'm using it since 10.10 and I noticed only one problem what appears when you use a non-unicode font. I understood your opinion anyway. –  ViBE Aug 24 '13 at 10:35
