I took quiet out of the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line and when I ran update-grub I get this:
/etc/default/grub: line 1: GRUB_DEFAULT=saved: command not found
If I change it to GRUB_DEFAULT=0 and either comment or change GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT to false and then run update-grub I get the same thing:
/etc/default/grub: line 1: GRUB_DEFAULT=0: command not found
I am only running Manjaro. Below are the first several lines of GRUB:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="apparmor=1 security=apparmor udev.log_priority=3"
# If you want to enable the save default function, uncomment the following
# line, and set GRUB_DEFAULT to saved.
What am I doing wrong? Thanks much for all the help.
My system has GRUB_DEFAULT=saved as the first line in /etc/default/grub and I never saw this problem.
Documentation says it’s ok to use strings here and mentions saved as special string: GNU GRUB Manual 2.04: Simple configuration
Somehow that line isn’t properly recognized. Did you copy+paste it from somewhere? Try deleting it completly and re-type it manually.
Could also be a potential encoding problem when you edited that file. What editor did you use? Check what file has to say:
