hi,
go to the console and then

# su
[password]

# apt-get remove grub

#wget -c http://www.guiaubuntupt.org/files/gfxboot/grub-gfxboot_0.97-5_i386.deb

# dpkg -i grub-gfxboot_0.97-5_i386.deb

# apt-get -f install

then you should unpack the file you'd downloaded and copy the "message.ultimate" to /boot/grub/

after copy the 'message.ultimate' return to the console

# kedit /boot/grub/menu.lst (kedit, gedit, any editor)

and then you sud add the following sentende on the menu.lst

gfxmenu /boot/grub/message.ultimate

go back to the console again

# grub

appears a new kind of terminal, u sud type

grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
(hdx,y) <- the terminal will return this to u, x and y are values you need)

now in the same terminal you type

grub>root (hdx,y)
grub>setup (hdx)
grub>quit

now u are on your normal console again, just type

# grub-install /dev/hda

(presuming your HD is the hda it may be the sda or other.)

hope it can help you :) - Nov 20 2007

Gfxboot Grub theme ubuntustudio

GRUB Themes by cjorge 14 comments

on the command line, first u must unpack and then u sud move or copy to the boot/grub directory

to unpack:

#tar -zxvf 68029-gfxbootstudio.tar

to copy for /boot/grub:

#cp message.studio /boot/grub

(in SU mode)


another way (not the command line way):
1.you unpack the file by pressing the right mouse button on the archive and select the 'unpack here'

2.[ALT]+F2 (it brings up a command line), type 'gksu nautilus'

3.Now u navigate to the /boot/grub directory and simply drag and drop the 'message.studio' file on the directory.

i hope it can help u...

sorry, it was my mistake, on my explanation instead of 'message.ubuntu' should be 'message.studio'. - Nov 09 2007
