GRUB resolution #computers

๐Ÿ••๏ธŽ - 2021-01-06

On my laptop GRUB defaults to display in the full resolution of the screen (3840x2160) which means tiny, tiny letters on the screen. I literally have to put on reading glasses to see them.

Fortunately the Arch wiki has the information I need: Setting the framebuffer resolution; after putting on my glasses and typing videoinfo on the GRUB command line, I found a line to put in /etc/default/grub that works:

GRUB_GFXMODE=1920x1200x32,auto

A quick sudo update-grub later, and now the text is legible to me. Nice, thanks Arch wiki!
