When I tried installing it, I got an error:
exception '9Exception'
with message 'themefile breeze/icons/deepin.png not found!
in /build/grub-customizer-hZVPvY/grub-customizer-5.0.6/src/main/../Bootstrap/../Model/Theme.hpp:152
I don't know if this is GRUB Customizer, or this just don't work.
I have the option to continue, but I might risk data loss.
Also, when I tried to set it as the theme, I got an error:
"theme.txt not found. Please find the themes config file and rename it as theme.txt!"
I noticed it was in a subdirectory and moved it. Did I do something wrong?

In order to use this theme, all you have to do is copy/move the directory that contains this theme to /usr/share/grub/themes/, then edit /etc/default/grub as follows:

GRUB_THEME="/usr/share/grub/themes/starfield/theme.txt"

And re-generate grub.cfg to apply the changes (in most cases, "grubcfg -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg" is more than enough). If configuring the theme was successful, you will see Found theme: /usr/share/grub/themes/starfield/theme.txt in the terminal.

The error you're getting is when building the program you mentioned.

I'm using Ubuntu 17.04, by the way, and there is no /themes/starfield/theme.txt. Should I make one?

Sorry if it seems like I'm spamming, but I got an error when I tried to emulate it using grub-emu:
error: can't find command 'hwmatch'
error: disk hd0,msdos5' not found.
It's probably because I'm using grub-emu, right?
The theme didn't show up either.

You should add a Windows 7/Vista/XP logo.
I dual-boot Ubuntu and Vista.

Not that this is urgent or anything, but it would be AWESOME if you added a Raspberry Pi desktop logo in there too. It's all right, I understand if you have NO idea what I'm talking about.

Working on it! Since I no longer have a duel-boot system, I've left this theme a little unattended, but don't worry, I'll give a bit of love to it soon! Thank you for the feedback!

i like this theme, all my computer entries looks awesome. But i've installed RemixOS(android) like an entry inside the ubuntu partition and in the display grub doesn't appear the android icon, it just looks like another system option. How can i give an icon to these entry?

Great theme, using it on my htpc at 1920x1080. I had to adjust the menu width to 90% and put left at 5% (instead of 100% and 0% in theme.txt) due to the overscan from HDTVs cutting of the side text.

Extract the TAR file
tar -xzvf Breeze-Grub2.tar.gz
move the folder breeze to /boot/grub/themes
sudo mv Breeze-GRUB2/breeze/ /boot/grub/themes/
edit the file /etc/default/grub
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
search for the part: "GRUB_THEME=/...." and change for:
GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub2/themes/breeze/theme.txt
save and close
update the grub with the command:
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Done.
Reboot the system and see if it worked.
Good Lock!

Hello, we were discussing using your Breeze grub2 theme for Kubuntu at the Randa sprint.
* https://goo.gl/photos/pmqot138pQCNJmvv7 - Jens of the VDG says it would be more breeze like that
* also solid color background from breeze color swath
* probably papergrey
* it should not fill the entire screen widthwise
* if there are more than 4 distros they should be positioned in a grid i.e. no scrollybars
* the elements should scale down the more stuff is there

Please write directly to Jens and/or the VDG. They can use your talent! jens@ohyran.se https://forum.kde.org/viewforum.php?f=285

In openSUSE you should use the following installation folders:

Extract the TAR file and move/copy the breeze folder to /boot/grub2/themes/.
Then edit /etc/default/grub:

GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub2/themes/breeze/theme.txt

Re-generate grub.cfg to apply the changes:

# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Thank your for the advice! I made a mini-script to automatize the installation.

Another way in OpenSUSE, maybe less "dangerous" or even fault tolerant, is:
- Extract the TAR file and move/copy the breeze folder to /boot/grub2/themes/.
- Launch "Yast" and then "Bootloader"
- Select "Kernel parameters" and then in "Console theme" you should click in "Browse". Yo can locate the folder "Breeze" and the file "theme.txt" or change the text to "/boot/grub2/themes/breeze/theme.txt"
- Click "Accept" button and all is done

The theme is quite rough around the edges, but it's already decent and I am looking forward to seeing how it develops!
