Did you mean grub-customizer? If so, then by default it only works on X.Org.

Besides, Fedora deals with kernel updates differently than Ubuntu - it doesn't rebuild entire grub config after every kernel update/removal, but uses it's tool - grubby - to add/remove individual grub2 entries. Because of that you might have to start grub-customizer after every kernel update, and let it save it's changes (e.g. if you enable submenu to hide older kernel entries).

Apart from that I didn't have any issues with grub-customizer on Fedora Cinnamon. You can always manually modify /etc/default/grub and then rebuild grub.cfg by running grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg or on UEFI systems grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg.

This is going to change in some future Fedora version. See the plans here.

Thanks for the info. So grubby will be replaced. After quick search I don't see any mention of grub-customizer support for BLS, let alone it's modified Fedora implementation.
