Changing grub 2 background

Trying to chang grub 2 background. After googling for a couple days this is what I come up with. See underlined.

GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Fedora"
GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480x32
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep
GRUB_BACKGROUND=/boot/verne.jpg

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 KEYTABLE=us quiet SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 rhgb rd.luks=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8"

Howver after running "grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg" and rebooting I get nothing. Any suggestions?

Henry

Ps Yes I copied verne.png to /boot

Re: Changing grub 2 background

You're missing one important step..... creating a ttf font.
Code:
grub2-mkfont --output=/boot/grub2/DejaVuSansMono.pf2 --size=24 /usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSansMono.ttf
And add to your /etc/default/grub file:
Code:
GRUB_FONT=/boot/grub2/DejaVuSansMono.pf2
Then re-run the "grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg" command.
With only a 640x480 graphics mode, the --size=24 may be a bit too large. You'll need to experiment with that.

Re: Changing grub 2 background

Those error messages are expected. I got them also, but it still creates the font file. They vary depending on which ttf font you choose. You can do:
Code:
ls /boot/grub2/DejaVuSansMono.pf2
to check if the font file got created.
