I've just been forcibly upgraded to Grub 2, and I'm having trouble because the fonts in the GRUB menu are ugly and small. I have successfully set the screen resolution with

GRUB_GFXMODE=1920x1200x32

in my /etc/grub/default file, and I attempted to set the font with

GRUB_FONT=/boot/grub/DejaVuSansMono48.pf2

where I created the font in question using grub-mkfont.

The native resolution works great, but unfortunately the font does not. I'm thinking maybe this affects the font that is used once the OS boots, but it definitely does not affect the font on the GRUB boot menu.

How can I get a larger font on the GRUB boot menu??
