Hello Linux Geeksters. Grub Customizer is a nice application, that allows the user to edit the menu entries from the GRUB booting screen, set the default operating system, change the installed OS via a livecd.
The latest version available is Grub Customizer 4.0.4, which has been added to its PPA a few hours ago. It comes only with a few fixes, including: improved the grub-cfg parser, fixed some script update detector issues and fixed the conflict resolution on startup.
In this article I will show you how to install Grub Customizer 4.0.4 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pear OS 8, Pear OS 7 and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via some third party ppa, installing Grub Customizer 4.0.4 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pear OS and Elementary OS is easy. All you have to do is:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
