Upstream constantly changes how the theme works and i simple dont want to keep up with that.

it doesn't seem to work even with @hasardeur's PKGBUILD fix: /boot/grub/themes/Vimix/theme.txt does not exist, so I cannot set GRUB_THEME in /etc/default/grub

The error persists. A quick and dirty workaround is to edit the file PKGBUILD after extracting it from the snapshot and to edit line 37 to read:

cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}/assets/assets-white/select-1080p/" or cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}/assets/assets-white/select-2k/" or cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}/assets/assets-white/select-4k/"

depending on your desired resolution. I have only tested this with 1080p! This behavior is directly linked to the last maintainers post and not trivial to fix. Maybe splitting this package into three flavors would be viable like: grub2-theme-vimix-1080p-git, grub2-theme-vimix-2k-git & grub2-theme-vimix-4k-git. There is added overhead and and a few other things to consider, though.

Bug reported by @skyblue still exists.

There's an error when trying to install the package: (I replaced my username with [username])

==> Starting package()...

/var/tmp/pamac-build-[username]/grub2-theme-vimix-git/PKGBUILD: line 37: cd: /var/tmp/pamac-build-[username]/grub2-theme-vimix-git/src/grub2-theme-vimix-git/assets/assets-white/select: No such file or directory

They added 2k and 4k backgrounds in upstream. But i am not sure how i should package that as the resolution is chosen at install time.

@polyzen Done

Please update the URL.

Hi i am the new maintainer. I updated the package and it should now work with the changes upstream.

Fixed the latest issue by changing the following in the PKGBUILD


package() { cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}/grub-theme-vimix/" find ./Vimix/ -type f -exec install -Dm644 {} \ "${pkgdir}/boot/grub/themes/{}" \; }


package() { cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}/" find ./ -type f -exec install -Dm644 {} \ "${pkgdir}/boot/grub/themes/{}" \; }

Mind that the grub-theme-vimix/ folder does not exists, and that the src/Vimix folder does not exist.

However following the theme install instructions doesn't provide the correct grub theme..
