How to get rid of grub menu?

I just installed budgie on my laptop. But for some reason when I boot up the grub boot loader appears.

I don’t want this behavior. I’m not dual booting with windows or anything.

How can I get rid of this?

odd. very odd.

Does this help?

The advice in that said basically says to change the timeout option.
However mine is already 0.

/etc/default$ cat grub

If you change this file, run ‘update-grub’ afterwards to update


For full documentation of the options in this file, see:

info -f grub -n ‘Simple configuration’

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian

Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs

This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains

the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD …)


Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)


The resolution used on graphical terminal

note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE

you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo’


Uncomment if you don’t want GRUB to pass “root=UUID=xxx” parameter to Linux


Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries


Uncomment to get a beep at grub start

#GRUB_INIT_TUNE=“480 440 1”

I completely wiped my disks and reinstalled budgie and the problem went away. I’m not sure what happened. Maybe leftovers from my previous kubuntu installation. Anyway I wish to close this thread.
