jsalpha2 Posted May 14, 2015 Share Posted May 14, 2015 I'm trying Vector Linux, a Slackware based distro (VL64-7.1-STD-RC4.3). It is very nice by the way. I'm dual booting with Debian and have Debian handle my grub2 with Grub Customizer allowing me to have large fonts and a nice background on the Grub boot screen. My procedure is to install Jessie first, then Vector, and finally boot back into Debian, update grub and then use Grub Customizer to set the fonts and background. The problem is that on Vector it sets grub to text boot (TUI). instead of Graphic boot for Vector. This means I have to type startx each time. So I figured that I would install Grub Customizer on Vector and see if my problem would go away. The only sort of Slackware version I could find was in a Slackel repository. grub-customizer-4.0.6-x86_64-1dj.txz The instructions are "Install grub-customizer txz package: # upgradepkg --install-new grub-customizer-4.0.6-x86_64-1dj.txz" (I'm thinking that means to put that file in the Downloads folder, open a terminal as root, and then cut and paste that command. So do you think it will work or am I going to mess things up big time? The Slackware way would be to figure out what files to modify manually and I tried reading the grub2 manual, but my eyes and brain did not connect.
