Please help. I downloaded several Burg themes using Super-Boot-Manager. Later I deleted Super-Boot_Manager. Now all the Burg themes have become redundant, but blocking any update through Synaptic.

I cannot even remove these themes whatever I may try to do. How can I remove these Burg themes? enter image description here

This should remove them:

sudo apt-get remove --purge burg burg-common burg-emu burg-pc burg-themes burg-themes-common

You can also remove themes without removing the BURG Bootloader.

Just open a terminal (Alt+F2) And Type:

gksu nautilus


sudo nautilus

And navigate to the Root Drive. Navigate to boot/burg/themes.

And Move all of the theme folders to the trash you wish delete.

However, Do Not Delete All of the Themes in the boot/burg/theme folder. Leave one theme in the boot/burg/themes folder.

Or you can Delete all the theme folders in the /boot/burg/themes Folder, And Download at least one theme and extract the zip file. Then, Open a terminal and type

gksu nautilus


sudo nautilus

and navigate to the folder where you extracted the theme folder. Move it to the /boot/burg/themes folder.

And finally, run this in a terminal:

sudo update-burg
