Bug Description

I would like to set the graphics of grub - the configuration file /etc/default/grub references vbeinfo but this tools does not seem to be part of ubuntu anymore.
(according to packages.ubuntu.com)

----
# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
#GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480
----

Please update the reference of vbeinfo to a existing tool....

Sorry, i oversight the fact that "vbeinfo" needs to be inserted at the grub prompt.

I added "1600x900" because this was show in the output of "vbeinfo", but it has no effect.

What needs to be used to change the graphics mode? (The hexcode?)

Changed in grub2 (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid

You need to run "sudo update-grub" after editing the /etc/default/grub for your changes to take effect.

Please see the following AskUbuntu question for detailed instuctions using the grub file or an app called Grub Customizer.
