Bootmenu design

after enthusiastically using Manjaro with Plasma Desktop for a couple of years on my entertainment laptop (thinkpad x230) now i have decided to take the next step and install it on my working machine (thinkpad x430). Everything works fine out of the box but i am a bit surprised to find the sparse grub-bootmenu (dualboot still).
I really like the fancy bootmenu that i have on the x230. Is there a possibility to get this?

Thank you very much for an answer. And greetings to all member of this forum

Not sure why, but the GRUB theme was dropped on the new ISO’s.

You can enable it again by editing /etc/default/grub

In short:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Scroll down to the bottom, paste the following line:


update grub config with:

sudo update-grub


Setting the theme is done by the postinstall of grub-theme-manjaro, which should be present according to the supplied package list.


WOW! This fast!!

Thank you very much to both of you! Both ways worked just fine and with the pamac-option i even get a ton of new bootmenu-themes i didn’t know existed.

sorry moson, i tried to mark both entries as a solution but as it appears only one can be chosen.
Thank you again.

For some reason it does not apply that with a fresh install from the ISO although the package is installed by default. :man_shrugging:
But yeah. Uninstalling and installing that package again will fix that indeed.
