I am currently on Ubuntu 17.10 and I want to switch the ugly GRUB boot loader with a nicer GUI one. I searched for this and I found burg but this is impossible to install it with the original ppa:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/burg sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes
When I add the ppa I got this message which is very old...
Burg (Maverick packaging) has been copied from the original repo (https://launchpad.net/~bean123ch/+archive/burg), and rebuilt for Natty. Nothing has been changed, just a basic copy and rebuild. This should hold you until that repo is update for Natty (if there ever is one).
The packaging has known to work well, so I won't push the newest revision (which is currently at 1844).
This repo was made specifically made so you can use Natty-built burg and not Maverick-built burg.
I will be doing a rebuild of both packages for Oneiric. The changes are as follows:
- Append existing entry.
- Adjust the versioning
- To get rid of "+maverick" (for the main package)
- Up the revision to "-2"
- Add line to debian/rules so that it can build successfully with GCC-4.6 (LP: #775460). I've encountered this issue before, and I know how to fix it.
Soon (probably after the release of Oneiric), I am going to create a second Burg PPA. It will be used to try out the newest revision of the package (with Oneiric and maybe Natty). And to see if there were any new bugs added in the newer revisions. I have minimal programming skills, so I can't add anything new to the package.
This will occur somewhere around the official release of Oneiric. Plus d’info : https://launchpad.net/~n-muench/+archive/ubuntu/burg Appuyez sur [ENTRÉE] pour continuer ou sur Ctrl-c pour annuler l'ajout.
Then... When I want to install it with
sudo apt-get update
I got this error:
Err:7 http://ppa.launchpad.net/n-muench/burg/ubuntu artful Release 404 Not Found Lecture des listes de paquets... Fait E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/n-muench/burg/ubuntu artful Release' does not have a Release file. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
So I don't know how to proceed or if there is another project for a gui boot loader... Is there a stable graphical boot loader for Ubuntu these days?
