Vimix Grub2 Theme Makes Ubuntu Boot-loader Look Prettier

Last updated: June 21, 2017


Boring with the default Grub2 boot loader appearance? Besides switching to Burg boot-loader, you can change the look and feel via the Vimix-grub-theme.

Grub Theme Vimix

The theme is designed by vinceliuice, the man behind Vimix GTK theme. He made a .deb installer and published it in a Chinese cloud service.

Due to connection and/or language reading issue, I’ve upload the file into Google Drive, available for download at the link below:

Download Vimix-Grub-theme

Click install the .deb via Ubuntu Software or Gdebi, or run command in terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) to install it:

sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/grub-themes-vimix_0.1-1_all.deb

Then restart and see result!

In addition:

For those who want to change the background image, simply install Grub-Customizer, launch the software and do:

  1. navigate to Appearance settings tab.
  2. highlight the theme file “background.png”
  3. click ‘Load file’ selection box and choose your image (must be .png)
  4. finally click Save button in Grub Customizer.

Also remove useless Grub menu entries via the first tab in Grub-Customizer if you have multiple Linux Kernels.


To restore Grub boot menu screen, open terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T or by searching for “Terminal” from app launcher, and then run command:

sudo apt-get remove grub-themes-vimix
