[opensuse-support] give TW Grub-EFI menu blue background instead of black?
This is what I had: (menu uses <1/2 the screen)
when I filed

This is what I have now, which eventually resulted from removing grub* packages
and config files, then reinstalling: (menu uses most of screen)

This is what I'm trying to achieve (blue background, like Debian produces):

I tried YaST2, but it doesn't seem to have any way to affect menu colors (or
font size or overall menu size).
didn't help.

Debian has a file /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme which undoubtedly accounts for its
boot menu colors. I tried including it in my TW /etc/grub.d/, but it didn't have
any desired effect, likely at least in part because of its many references to
*grub/* where openSUSE has *grub2/*.

I tried to find docs on the installed system that might explain grub menu
theming, but no luck there:
# rpm -qa | grep grub
# man grub.cfg
No manual entry for grub.cfg
# man grub
No manual entry for grub
# man grub2
No manual entry for grub2
# man grub2-i386-pc
No manual entry for grub2-i386-pc
# man grub2-x86_64-efi
No manual entry for grub2-x86_64-efi
# grub
If 'grub' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that
contains it, like this:
cnf grub
# grub2
If 'grub' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that
contains it, like this:
cnf grub2

Anyone know how to make my openSUSE TW Grub menu colors match Debian's, or where
docs are that might explain?

Bonus question: What controls overall Grub menu size, whether it uses only a
small portion of the center of the screen instead of most of it? I looked in
/etc/grub.d/, /etc/default/grub and /boot/grub2/grub.cfg without spotting
anything that looked like any kind of size control.
