How do I uninstall Grub Customizer in Ubuntu 14.04?

Asked by Gottier on 2014-10-27

I am running Ubuntu 14.04. After installing Grub Customizer my computer's boot time is at least an extra 20 seconds longer. I want to uninstall it, and searches for a procedure have conflicting information. For instance, some indicate that there would be a dir created named "proxifiedScripts", but I don't see that.

All I wanted to use Grub Customizer for was to change the splash screen resolution, which was 640x480, and needed to be changed to my preferred screen size. I was able to do that just fine, but the slow boot time is not worth it.

Can you please recommend an official way to remove Grub Customizer for me (Ubuntu 14.04)?

Thank you.

I don't think it's because of Grub Customizer. Grub Customizer has no "initial config". If you're changing nothing but only clicking the "save" button, it doesn't modify your system (ok, one exception: it creates a backup directory at /etc/grub.d/backup). When you're only modifying your wallpaper there also shouldn't be any other modification.

Uninstalling Grub Customizer doesn't reset the config of grub 2.

However, here are some ways to reset your grub config (I think you should prefer the first one):
* restore the backup from /etc/grub.d/backup (see the file RESTORE_INSTRUCTIONS; this backup is created only at first time - before changing your config using Grub Customizer)
* use the revert button on the list configuration (only reverts the list, not settings like wallpaper)
* reinstall grub2

If this really fixes your problem, I'd be happy if you help me finding out what's wrong there (by giving me your configuration before and after the change).

Can you help with this problem?
