Issues / tweaks:

Correcting display resolution:

  • On the grub screen, press c to enter the command line
  • Enter vbeinfo or videoinfo to check available resolutions
  • Open /etc/default/grub, and edit GRUB_GFXMODE=[height]x[width]x32 to match your resolution
  • Finally, run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg to update your grub config

Setting a custom background:

  • Make sure you have imagemagick installed, or at least something that provides convert
  • Find the resolution of your display, and make sure your background matches the resolution
    • (1920x1080 -> --1080p, 2560x1080 -> --ultrawide, 2560x1440 -> --2k, 3440x1440 -> --ultrawide2k, 3840x2160 -> --4k)
  • Place your custom background inside the root of the project, and name it background.jpg
  • Run the installer like normal, but with -s [YOUR_RESOLUTION] and -t [THEME] and -i [ICON]
    • Make sure to replace [YOUR_RESOLUTION] with your resolution and [THEME] with the theme

Contributing:

  • If you made changes to icons, or added a new one:
    • Delete the existing icon, if there is one
    • Run cd assets; ./render-all.sh
