I'm a newbie to Ubuntu, and I'm using 11.10.

I used super boot manager and boot manager, and I messed a lot with burg, grub and plymouth till that whatever I do there will be no change to burg theme and plymouth theme.

So, I removed super boot manager boot manager and reinstalled super boot manager, but it give me an error when I hit install burg button.

How to remove and reset everything about burg, grub and plymouth so I can set a theme for them?

When you remove a package, its configuration files usually stay behind. Use sudo apt-get purge <name-of-package> to remove configuration files along with the package.

This may still leave behind configuration files in your home directory, or files you created yourself. You may need to remove those files manually.
