# Giant Wall Of Text

This is a theme for the [(U)EFI rEFInd boot manager](https://sourceforge.net/projects/refind/) bootmanager.  The theme
is a little cheeky twist of irony on what people consider _the_ graphical bootmanager.  All artwork, apart from the
background, is taken from the popular [neofetch](https://github.com/dylanaraps/neofetch), and covered by the MIT
licence.  The Manjaro logo was slightly altered, by swapping the block characters for 'm's.

## Installation

As rEFInd has no means for elements to be placed at a given position, and trying to line up text with text requires
accurate positioning, you will need to include the slightly amusing bash script, `install.bash`.  The script will ask
you for a resolution which your UEFI firmware can use.  Note that along with `sed` and `awk`, you will need to have
`imagemagick` installed.

_The slightly amusing installer --- after colouring the first line, I learned to enter escape codes starting from the end_
