I Installed that theme moving the files for the folder with root privilegies but when I reboot my computer nothing happen I press "T" (like said in the blog) for select the theme and nothing happen, press F3 for the resolution and nothing happen, why?

From your fdisk -l output here

You have to replace (hd0) with (hd1)

To customize ,

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

Open grub-customizer then you will see a prompt like this :Click on "yes"


Now under List Configuration --> Right click on the entries you want to hide and click Remove


Try to run sudo burg-emu and change the theme and resolution from there.

I found this nice tutorial for Ubuntu 14.04, so it should work great with Freya: http://develop.alpdesigns.ch/pages/ubuntu/brug-and-theme-configuration.html

  • I try but still getting the default
