How to restore Grub's appearances safety ?


I used "Grub Customizer 3.0.2" to change the appearances on the grub, but it looks nothing like the options I choose. It looks terrible with debugging look a like symbols. Is there a way to safely restore Grub's original appearances ? Re-installing Grub perhaps ?

OS: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

No. Thats a little overkill.

open your /boot/grub/grub.conf

you will probably have a lot of extra junk in there.
It should probably look more like this

#FYI you can comment out lines you don't need with a "#" rather than deleting them.
#IF you think you might use it later it's probably a good idea.

Code:
default 0                                                 #The default option
timeout 30                                                #How long grub will wait
splashimage=(hd0,2)/grub/grublogo.xpm.gz                  #optional, this is just the splash

title Gentoo Linux 3.4.9 build 2                          #Name of your linux distro
root (hd0,5)                                              #Root partition location
kernel (hd0,2)/vmlinuz-3.4.9-gentoo-build2 root=/dev/sda6 #Kernel Location

title Gentoo Linux 3.4.9 build 1                          #This can be removed 
root (hd0,5)                                              #unless you had multiple
kernel (hd0,2)/vmlinuz-3.4.9-gentoo-build1 root=/dev/sda6 #kernels.
			
title Winstupid                                           #Windows requires it's own boot 
rootnoverify (hd0,1)                                      #loader and requires chain loading
makeactive                                                #to pass control of the active
chainloader +1                                            #partition
if you need any more specific help, paste the output of
Code:
fdisk -l
and
Code:
ls /boot/

Editing gurb.cfg is not the way to fo, since it is an automatically generated file and will be rebuilt occasionally on updates.
It is better to edit /etc/default/grub and the files in /etc/grub.d/ and then launch a rebuild of grub.cfg with
Code:
sudo update-grub
