Default Ubuntu 9.04 Question

Hi, over the last few days I've been installing mods to make my Ubuntu 9.04 look like Mac OSX. I'm on the last step which is to change the boot screen to the OSX boot screen. I'm fairly confused, does anyone know how to do this??

Hi,

We would need to know more about the setup than that. I want to know what program it is that you are using to change Grub to look more like a mac boot loader. Also, please give the exact error that you are getting if you are getting one.

Cheers!

The setup I'm using is Mac4lin. It's not an error that I'm getting the start-up manager won't save the certain theme that I need it to use. I can select the theme, but it won't save it as the boot up theme.

Hi,

I would start with having a look at Mac4lin support page. I will do a little bit of looking too, to see if I can find anything.

Cheers!
