I just installed patience and it has a special theme while booting, how do I get the debian style text boot messages instead of the graphical one?

That didn't do it.  That line is already in there.  There's a file /etc/default/grub.d/siduction.cfg that sets the theme. I can't see where that file is called nor do I know what to set the theme line to in order to unset the theme.  I've looked everywhere in /etc/grub.d but don't see where the siduction config is called and the code in those files is a bit much for me to read and I don't want to experiment.

Here is the section from my /etc/default/grub, and I have no theme during booting:


Code: [Select]
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

As in other cases where config directories exist (like sources.list.d/*), as long as /etc/default/grub.d/siduction.cfg exists its content will override /etc/default/grub
So either move that file away to a save place or just
Code: [Select]
apt remove patience-grub-theme

@der_bud: looks like a little bit of overkill
Code: [Select]
# LANG=C apt remove patience-grub-theme                                          :(

it might be a more sensible approach just to comment out not needed lines

@vayu - have a look into grub-mkconfig

Thanks all.  Commenting out the line "GRUB_THEME=/usr/share/grub/themes/patience/theme.txt" in the file /etc/default/grub.d/siduction.cfg did the trick.
