Smile Grub Background Image Help


Hi all,
I am trying to make an image to use as background on Grub as per [HTML]https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Splash%20Images%20and%20Theming[/HTML]

I edited the beginning of /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme from the first to the second "code quote" as below.

Question: I am still recieving the same standard Grub screen (black background w/ white text). What else do i need to change in that file?

Original
Code:
source /usr/lib/grub/grub-mkconfig_lib

# this allows desktop-base to override our settings
f=/usr/share/desktop-base/grub_background.sh
if test -e ${f} ; then
  source ${f}
else
  WALLPAPER="/usr/share/images/desktop-base/moreblue-orbit-grub.png"
  COLOR_NORMAL="black/black"
  COLOR_HIGHLIGHT="magenta/black"
to

Code:
source /usr/lib/grub/grub-mkconfig_lib

# this allows desktop-base to override our settings
f=/usr/share/desktop-base/grub_background.sh
if test -e ${f} ; then
  source ${f}
else
  WALLPAPER="/usr/share/images/grub/Apollo_17_The_Last_Moon_Shot_Edit1.png"
  COLOR_NORMAL="black/black"
  COLOR_HIGHLIGHT="magenta/black"
Many thanks

Actually my question would be is the other image showing?

Because if the "if" test works you will never get to the images.

I am ashamed to admit such a newbie (and rather lazy/disrespectful) error. But yes Bratmon you were correct. The pathname contained an error. Forgive me. This will teach me a lesson about errors in text.
