BURG Boot loader installation, themeing & more gets even easier with BURG Manager app

The process of installing BURG – the easy way to get a graphical, good-looking bootloader - has been made easier thanks to a new ‘BURG Manager’ application which provides users with a graphical front-end for configuring and managing various aspects of their bootloader.

Features include:

  • Install Burg, Burg-themes and a Burg emulator
  • Set timeout
  • Change theme
  • Set the screen resolution
  • Browse & install new BURG themes
  • Remove Burg
  • Restore Grub2
  • Set the default operating system

Download

Easy one-click install .deb files can be found over on the projects home page @ this link.

Alternatively you can add the official repository for the application, thus ensuring you remain up-to-date with the latest fixes and features. To do this open a terminal and enter the following commands carefully and as root where needed.

  • echo “deb http://www.sourceslist.eu/repo/ubuntu lucid main non-free” | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
  • wget http://www.sourceslist.eu/?download=public.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install burg-manager

Once installed you will find the BURG Manager in the Application > System menu

Finally…

To finish off here is a pretty swish video of the application in action from the developers themselves: -
