nice screen now thanks for writing this macro !
Following your instructions made it easy to install though I am not a computer freak.
Please let me know if there is a way to enlarge the text a little bit - I would appreciate it because my eyes are not so good any more, they have 77 years on their back :-)

Sorry for my bad English. I have a problem. I have Linux Mint Maya and Windows. This not detect LM icon. Appear GNU/Linux icon.
Too I edit the .txt for problems to boot, because appear "unknown property" for the "terminal", just put a # in terminal-left, right, width and the other.

And I am using "Grub Customizer" for the grub images like this. It's more easy.

Hi, thanks for reporting. Please try to rename linux mint's icon to either linuxmint.png or mint.png.

You may use these commands:

$ sudo cp /boot/grub/themes/Aurora-Penguinis-GRUB2/icons/linux-mint.png /boot/grub/themes/Aurora-Penguinis-GRUB2/icons/linuxmint.png

and

$ sudo cp /boot/grub/themes/Aurora-Penguinis-GRUB2/icons/linux-mint.png /boot/grub/themes/Aurora-Penguinis-GRUB2/icons/mint.png

Please report back, so I can fix this problem :)
