I want to enable the nice splash screen on GRUB boot menu. I have Ubuntu 11.04, running on a nVidia graphics card. Please help. I'm new to Linux.


I want to set a background image when GRUB shows a list of available OS. I have Ubuntu 11.04. I've changed colour through grub.cfg in /boot/grub but can't set an image as background in the list.

I haven't tested it on my own, but the Grub Customizer seems to be able to do what you want. It's a nice GUI application where you can easily manage the Grub settings.
