Ubuntu Linux: Install BURG bootloader

Last Updated on July 8, 2015 by admin

BURG is a bootloader just like GRUB (the screen that you see after booting your machine where you choose which operating system to boot) besides that it comes with a graphical environment that you can choose themes for instead of the usual black screen with a few lines on it.

To install BURG you need to add the appropriate PPA...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/burg

..., update your sources...

sudo apt-get update

... and finally install it:

sudo apt-get install burg

Your boot menu will look different the next time you reboot your machine. If you need help configuring, press F1 to get a list of shortcuts that will help you. To change themes, press F2. You will still be able to access the classic styled menu with one of the shortcuts.
