Grub2 GUI settings

Grub Customizer is a graphical interface to configure the grub2 settings. Its focussed on the individual list order. The dynamical behavior of grub is maintained.
The goal of this project is to create a complete and intuitive graphical grub2 configuration interface. The main feature is the boot entry list configuration – to keep the dynamical configuration, this application will only edit the script order and generate proxies (script output filter), if required.

Install Grub Customizer in ubuntu
Open the terminal and run the following command
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer
Once you install you can open from Applications -> System Toiols -> Grub Customize

Very useful, thank you. I'm trying it. It seems that colors and background preferences do not work. I'll try to read the files

Quick review: It works. I'm a complete Linux n00b and got this working. In a few seconds I was able to extend the default Grub timeout and change the default OS.

The only confusing part was setting the default option. The Preferences screen says something about positions but there are no indicators on the list view of Grub entries. The saving grace was the entries were listed in a dropdown.

So, it works as advertised, but it could do with a bit of UI work to make things easier to understand.

Thanks for this.

Thanks Jeroen for the article,

Any more info for the old n@@b, me and others?

Do you have a LINK to HOW tos?
The "help" was NO real help, except giving the extensions of the files.

I be running Mint 10 and ONLY get 2 (tabs) 1. Boot Options 2. Advanced (in name only)
Unlike the screenshots of other startup-managers for Ubuntu, that have 4 or 5 tabs.

Maybe a link to SUM ... older than 1.9 deb would do?
