Hi 白い熊!

The handling of background images for GRUB got improved. Now PNG files are supported, too.

Change your code to something like this:

(theme (grub-theme (resolution '(1920 . 1080))
                   (image (local-file "/home/shiroikuma/0/pictures/grub/gnu-grub.png")))


Bye

Stefan

Sometimes the API can change. I saw this code in the thread today:

(theme (grub-theme (resolution '(1920 . 1080))
                   (image (local-file "/home/shiroikuma/0/pictures/grub/gnu-grub.png")))


Notice that it uses "image" and not "images".  I don't know if that is
the fix...I am just pointing that out.

I'm using the code proposed in the beginning of this thread, namely:

(bootloader (bootloader-configuration
(bootloader grub-bootloader)
(target "/dev/sda")
(theme (grub-theme
(inherit %default-theme)
(images (list (grub-image
(aspect-ratio 4/3) ; or 16/9, &c., to match…
(file (local-file "/home/shiroikuma/0/pictures/grub/gnu-grub.svg"))))))))

And it was working before the latest Guix git pull — it reconfigured the system and themed Grub. Now it gives the error mentioned.

Your error message is saying "Hey pal!  You code is almost working, but
you have a syntax error around your (images ...)  code."

Is "images" the proper syntax?

Also, it's also very helpful when you paste your code along with the
error message.  That can help people better assist you.  Good luck!  :)

With the latest d. Guix pull I now get a failure on system reconfigure:

/home/shiroikuma/system.scm:48:22: error: (grub-theme (inherit %default-theme) (images (list (grub-image (aspect-ratio 4/3) (file (local-file "/home/shiroikuma/grub.svg")))))): extraneous field initializers (images)

How to resolve this?

I got the same error until changing to an SVG type image, then it worked.
I just converted from a PNG using inkscape.

Tobias, I've inspected the error and done some digging - I've tried to reconfigure using a PNG file just to be safe - it's all the same.

Anyhow, based on my latest fail log, I get:

===
Backtrace:
2 (primitive-load "/gnu/store/a85xz515j3dak1w89nz1gndnd19?")
In gnu/build/svg.scm:
46:4 1 (svg->png "/gnu/store/zbrpy072h2bw66d2qpczz9ki26vb9saj?" ?)

ERROR: In procedure rsvg-handle-new-from-file:
Throw to key `rsvg-error' with args `("rsvg-handle-new-from-file" "" () ())'.
===

So, inspecting the above, I see:

-r--r--r-- 2 root root 418689 1970-01-01 1970 /gnu/store/zbrpy072h2bw66d2qpczz9ki26vb9saj-gnu-grub.png

The image is the converted image, I checked.

So, why the rsvg-error here? Why is it failing?

I'm sorry, Tobias, I was mistaken — I thought it had to go in the “(grub-configuration” section under “(bootloader”. Thanks for posting your config — I saw the mistake.

Anyhow, now “system reconfigure” still won't finish.

With the bootloader section like:

(bootloader (bootloader-configuration
(bootloader grub-bootloader)
(target "/dev/sda")))

… it reconfigures fine.

If I change to:

(bootloader (bootloader-configuration
(bootloader grub-bootloader)
(target "/dev/sda")
(theme (grub-theme
(inherit %default-theme)
(images (list (grub-image
(aspect-ratio 4/3) ; or 16/9, &c., to match…
(file (local-file "/home/shiroikuma/0/pictures/grub/gnu-grub.jpg")))))))))

… the reconfigure fails with:

OK, can you be more specific?  ‘Invalid field specifier’ on its 
own doesn't tell us anything.

I pasted my previous example into my own system.scm and it built 
fine:

(operating-system
 …
 (bootloader (bootloader-configuration
              (bootloader grub-efi-bootloader)
              (target "/boot/efi")
              (theme (grub-theme
                      ;; This probably makes little sense in 
                      practice,
                      ;; unless your image suits the default 
                      colours:
                      (inherit %default-theme)
                      (images (list (grub-image
                                     (aspect-ratio 4/3)
                                     (file (local-file 
                                     "/home/…")))))))
              (timeout (seconds 1)))
 …)

What does your operating-system's (bootloader …) field look like, 
and what did Guix actually say?

Kind regards,

T G-R

This unfortunately also gives me “invalid field specifier”.

The ‘invalid field specifier’ is ‘background_image’, which isn't 
part of the (undocumented) grub-theme record.

Try something roughly like (unfortunately untested):

(grub-theme
 (inherit %default-theme)
 (images
  (list (grub-image
         (aspect-ratio 4/3) ; or 16/9, &c., to match…
         (file (local-file
                "/home/shiroikuma/0/pictures/grub/gnu-grub.jpg"))))))

‘local-file’ takes care of creating an immutable copy of 
gnu-grub.jpg in the store, where it can be seen and safely used by 
the sandboxed build environment.

Kind regards,

T G-R

Hi Guix:

I have this nice GNU hacker background that ages ago some system installed as the GRUB background then. I'd like to use it as GRUB background in Guix System now.

I tried to set it thus, along the lines of GRUB theming instruction in the manual:

(grub-configuration
(theme (grub-theme
(inherit %default-theme)
(background_image '("/home/shiroikuma/0/pictures/grub/gnu-grub.jpg")))))

But it doesn't work — gives me an invalid field specifier — so
I guess “background_image” cannot be specified this way. Any other way to do it?
