Boot menu theme for Linux Mint. (GRUB2 theme)
One size fits all.
WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL. This theme does not seem to work on the new Mint 19.3 and upcoming versions. It was tested only on Mint 18.3. However, after a failed attempt to install on Mint 19.3, nothing bad happened. The original linuxmint-theme overrides. That’s all. This theme is old and is only good for Mint 18, 18.1, 18.2 and 18.3.
This theme can fit different screen resolutions. We call this Responsive Design. But there are no sophisticated Responsive Design features on Grub 2. So i just made wise use of relative plus absolute unit combinations to get a design that is flexible enough...
This is an original creation. Grub theme making was learned here: http://wiki.rosalab.ru/en/index.php/Grub2_theme_tutorial
All the text remains unchanged, so if your Grub menu is currently displayed in your home language it will be kept that way. Except for the 5 words in the help menu on the bottom-left of the screen: "select", "boot", etc.
A New Logo
I created a new version of the Linux Mint logo. I proposed it to the team and the community. I do not know if it will become official one day, but I could not wait and I integrated it everywhere: here on this Grub theme and this menu icon, and on a Plymouth theme that completes this set. The Plymouth theme is the animated splash screen that appears right after this Grub theme. This Plymouth theme is available as a separate product in the "Plymouth Themes" section of this website, here: https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1279093/.
