appearance changes show in customizer but NOT in boot up screen

Asked by seadevil on 2014-04-25

grub shows this after I went through customizer:

Generating grub.cfg ...
using custom appearance settings

Found background image: /home/dave/Downloads/new pics/Fantasy_by_SnowSkadi.png

Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.11.0-12-generic
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.11.0-12-generic

Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin
  No volume groups found
Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda1
Found Zorin OS 8 (8) on /dev/sda5
done

should I delete these two lines? :

Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.11.0-12-generic
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.11.0-12-generic

Think I read here somewhere that these were NOT supposed to show and was a bug?

thank you for your help. I have been at this for two days now.

Dave

The grub scripts aren't processing spaces correctly. You have to rename the directory name from "new pics" to "new_pics".

This is not a problem of grub customizer - the path is written to config correctly. The problem also isn't grub itself. It's the 05_debian_theme which is developed by the debian developers. It finds the image but doesn't write it to grub.cfg correctly.

badly needed too for us "not geeks"

Hello, thank you very much Daniel Richter, I had the same problem with grub customizer on linux mint 17, your solution was the best and the easier, only one space erased and all works fine. Greetings from Mexico.
