grub background is found but not showing

This is my grub.cfg:

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Arch"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

# Preload both GPT and MBR modules so that they are not missed
GRUB_PRELOAD_MODULES="part_gpt part_msdos png"

# Uncomment to enable Hidden Menu, and optionally hide the timeout count
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=5
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true

# Uncomment to use basic console
GRUB_TERMINAL_INPUT=console

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal
#GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT=console

# 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'
GRUB_GFXMODE=1024X768

# Uncomment to allow the kernel use the same resolution used by grub
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep

# Uncomment if you want GRUB to pass to the Linux kernel the old parameter
# format "root=/dev/xxx" instead of "root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/xxx"
#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries
GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY=true

# Uncomment and set to the desired menu colors.  Used by normal and wallpaper
# modes only.  Entries specified as foreground/background.
GRUB_COLOR_NORMAL="light-blue/black"
GRUB_COLOR_HIGHLIGHT="black/white"

# Uncomment one of them for the gfx desired, a image background or a gfxtheme
GRUB_BACKGROUND="/home/joel/grub/115887-archboot.png"
#GRUB_THEME="/path/to/gfxtheme"

# Uncomment to get a beep at GRUB start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

#GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT="true"

after, runing grub-mkconfig:

Generating grub.cfg ...
Found background: /home/joel/grub/115887-archboot.png
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux
Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-linux.img
done

When I reboot, I can see the colors in menu, but not the image:

1.- Yes, the png exists
2.- image file is 1024X768, same as GRUB_GFXMODE
3.- I try commenting and uncommenting the lines GRUB_COLOR_HIGHLIGHT and GRUB_COLOR_NORMAL, and still not showing the background

any ideas, please?

Re: grub background is found but not showing

The file you have posted is /etc/default/grub. Post your /boot/grub/grub.cfg .

Re: grub background is found but not showing

Did you try saving the image file somewhere on your boot partition?
