BURG Gets Update, Updated Instructions

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The GRUB menu animating/themeing application ‘BURG’ received a PPA update today resulting in some changes to how you install themes.

If you have yet to install BURG then you can skip this article and follow our original – now revised – tutorial @ this link here.
If you already have BURG installed and get ‘theme not found’ errors you will need to do the following: –
  • Open a terminal
  • sudo apt-get remove grub-pc
  • sudo apt-get install grub-pc
  • Re-download your theme from the list here and save it to your Home folder
  • cd /boot/grub
  • sudo unzip ~/
You may also want to try out the new ‘GRUB emulation’ mode which lets you preview your themes.
  • sudo apt-get install grub-emu
  • sync ; sudo grub-emu
You can exit the previw window by pressing ‘c’ and typing ‘exit’.
