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


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 lucid main non-free” | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
  • wget -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.
