• Change Grub Resolution

    Does anyone know how I can adjust the grub loader resolution? When I boot up the grub menu its resolution is not 1920 x 1080 and I can only see about half of the actual loader.

  • sure:

    sudo nano /etc/default/grub

    and change the res. to what your card and monitor fits:

    # The resolution used on graphical terminal
    # note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
    # you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'

    save with [Ctrl+X]

    rewrite grub.cfg with:

    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
  • Worked perfect, thank you very much! I was lacking the knowledge of having to rewrite.

  • You are welcome!

  • Let me add that it took more than 10 minutes to update mine, as I also changed my resolution.

    The update goes like this:

    [email protected]:/etc/default 23:11:22 #>grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    Generating grub configuration file ...
    Found theme: /boot/grub/themes/starfield/theme.txt
    Found Intel Microcode image
    Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux
    Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-linux.img
    Found fallback initramfs image: /boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img
    Found Arch Linux on /dev/sdc2
    [email protected]:/etc/default 23:22:00 #>

    Before the “Found Arch Linux” it takes forever to end. So better grab something to drink and wait.

  • @casquinhas Thats a long time! Mine was done in a matter of seconds… Any idea why it took your machine longer?

  • @casquinhas Is it because of your starfield theme?

  • I have one small SSD and 2 big hard disks. Removed big disks, now only with SSD.

    It takes 3 seconds. So… it might go on all hard disks looking for another operating systems, maybe, don’t know yet.

    Most important is that if you do have more HD’s, wait until it finishes.

  • You can mount all disks (with filemanager) and it will get faster…

    Yes, but one fixed HD I’m not using and the other external of 2TB not using it too, so I was forgeting to remove then.
    Just used this for an excuse to remove them. I usually mount them as needed but they are better powered off. Less power, less hours on the clock. But thanks for the tip.
