  • gnome-system-tools (many things, e.g. GUI for user and groups management. IMO this package should be suggested or recommended by some other gnome package more prominently (currently only gnome-nettool suggests it and lxde (!) recommends

  1. Make your changes in /etc/default/grub:
    • Add kernel options to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. In my current case:
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet video.use_native_backlight=0"
    • Always boot the last selected kernel (instead of the first one):
    • Disable grub showing up at all per default (hold "shift" to show it anyway):
  2. Apply your changes
    sudo update-grub
