9 Awesome theme! Thank you author. There is only one question: is it possible to manually define which icon will be match to the OS? I have Linux Mint with Lubuntu but they have usual Ubuntu icon instead their appropriate icons.

Thanks. Icon is selected based on the *classes* specified for the menu entry in /boot/grub/grub.cfg (see http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub/grub.html#Boot-Menu). That file is autogenerated, but you can alter the generation process with files in /etc/grub.d This might give a clue: https://antergos.com/wiki/miscellaneous/how-to-add-icons-to-antergos-grub-menu-entries-mbr-legacy/ (this is for Antergos, but most of it is applicable to other distros as well).

So I ran all the steps, everything went smoothly until the last one, updating the GRUB.
I ran the update script in Terminal and it came back with the following message:

/usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig: 43: /etc/default/grub: Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string

I was hoping you could shed some light on what's happened here? tbh it's probably something I did wrong previously or installed, but I thought I'd check just for the sake of covering all bases.

Thanks in advance.

You probably miss or have an extra double quote somewhere in /etc/default/grub (might be on line 43).

So I ran terminal and loaded sudo nano grub and it turns out I had previouslty modified it (I didn't realise/had forgotten all about it) and had left the background field customised. All I did was change the field to "false", saved and updated. Everything's running smoothly now.

Thanks for the tip. Love the theme, it's awesome.

Is it possible to change the font size? I tried to edit theme.txt file and set item_font = "Unifont Regular 72" but it didn't work.
