You may want to go through each step you went through with the grub problem. Possibly you accidently left one out.

Your customizations do sound a lot like many we made easy on MX Linux, though...such as auto login.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Krita 3.3.3, Pale Moon 27.7.2, Yacreader 9.0rc1, Calligra 3.1, VLC 3.0.0, Firefox 58.0.2, QMPlay2 17.12.31

@stevepusser:
Never heard of mxlinux, but I did used mepis for a while. Thank for offering some help.

grub does not read the /etc/default/grub file
should have been written:
the user did not replace the /etc/default/grub file, when he thought he did so. He just backed up the original file :wink:

Updated first post accordingly.

That is a cumbersome method, it is usually more effective and less confusing for everyone to make a separate thread for each individual question. But of course, the choice is yours to make.
