I tired to install burg with following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/burg
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes

Everything went fine but when i run sudo burg-emu instead of showing burg theme it shows

                     BURG  version 1.98+20100623-2.3

   Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB
   lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible
   device or file completions.


in the terminal. Now i think that i did something wrong. I think if i restart now, my computer might not boot showing same grub>. So, how to fix this? I want to install burg either way.

UPDATE: I restarted my computer but nothing happened. There was no burg menu rather it was same old grub.

Found the solution. I think i missed a line.

sudo burg-install /dev/sda && sudo update-burg

Now it works fine.
