I just cannot get any theme to work.
I can get to a graphical font text menu, and I can display a background

background_image /boot/themes/proto/bg.png
but nothing more.

I am using a recent trunk build of grub2-1.99 and letting grub2-mkconfig
produce the grub.cfg.

My /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and /etc/default/grub and the theme.txt are here:-

The theme I am trying to test with is one I downloaded in a theme pack.

Video card is nvidia FX5600u.

I must be missing something.

OK thanks to a link to a different set of themes from Jordan on IRC I can now get a theme to display and can attempt to boot from it.

However, the boot fails with a complete hang of the graphics just prior to log-in. I can't get to a tty, the only way out is CTRL/ALT/DEL which by the sound of the drive activity does an orderly reboot.

Removing the lines "set gfxpayload=keep" can sometimes fix this, but grub2-mkconfig always replaces these lines.

What's the solution ?
