Burg on Linux Mint 17.3
Santa dropped off an SSD for my dev laptop which duel boots windows xp and Linux mint. I’ve always wanted something a bit more polished for a boot manager and found Burg Brand-new Universal loadeR from GRUB
Here’s how I installed it
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/burg sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes sudo burg-install /dev/sda (please check the name of your drive) sudo update-burg
Then to test
ta da! F2 allows you to choose what theme and F3 will change the resolution.
please bear in mind adding a repo can be a security risk, I don’t own that repo nor have the ability to check how genuine it is, us at your own risk. Using sudo with boot managers can brick your machine, have a live distro handy in case you make a mistake!
