Has anyone gotten Grub Customizer working in Gentoo? I found this in someone's personal overlay on Github but I can't figure out how to install it to my machine. I tried following these directions, creating an XML file ssmike_overlay.xml:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>                                                         
<repositories version="1.0">
   <repo priority="50" quality="experimental" status="unofficial">
     <name>ssmikes-overlay</name>
     <description>Ssmike provides grub-customizer for Gentoo</description>
     <homepage>https://github.com/ssmike/overlay</homepage>
     <owner>
       <email></email>
     </owner>
     <source type="git">https://github.com/ssmike/overlay.git</source>
   </repo>
 </repositories>


...putting it in /var/lib/layman/ and then running:

Code:
layman -o ssmike_overlay.xml -f -a ssmikes-overlay
(as described at https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Layman#Basic_invocations).

but I get the error:

Quote:
"Exception: Overlay 'ssmikes-overlay' does not exist"
.

Alternately I could try to compile from source manually but I don't know if my PC has all the prerequisite packages installed and that seems a messier solution anyway. So I was wondering if anyone else has gotten it working, and if so, how.

Fixed the tagged links, by removing unnecessary quotation marks. -- desultory

Wrong place. Just put it anywhere in ~/.

And don't forget to eix-update :-)
