Issues / tweaks:

Correcting display resolution:

  • On the grub screen, press c to enter the command line
  • Enter vbeinfo or videoinfo to check available resolutions
  • Open /etc/default/grub, and edit GRUB_GFXMODE=[height]x[width]x32 to match your resolution
  • Finally, run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg to update your grub config

Setting a custom background:

  • Make sure you have imagemagick installed, or at least something that provides convert
  • Find the resolution of your display, and make sure your background matches the resolution
    • 1920x1080 >> 1080p
    • 2560x1080 >> ultrawide
    • 2560x1440 >> 2k
    • 3440x1440 >> ultrawide2k
    • 3840x2160 >> 4k
  • Place your custom background inside the root of the project, and name it background.jpg
  • Run the installer like normal, but with -s [YOUR_RESOLUTION] and -t [THEME] and -i [ICON]
    • Make sure to replace [YOUR_RESOLUTION] with your resolution and [THEME] with the theme


  • If you made changes to icons, or added a new one:
    • Delete the existing icon, if there is one
    • Run cd assets; ./
  • Create a pull request from your branch or fork
  • If any issues occur, report then to the issue page
