I need to clear up my start up screen and re-order. I have down loaded the grub-customizer apt but don't know how to run it. any and all suggestions greatfully received


OK, To install Grub-Customizer, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:adabbas/1stppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

Once installed, search for it in Dash, and then click on the icon, and it will open. See images below.

To run it from terminal type:

sudo grub-customizer
  • Unfortunately once installed, It does not appear within 'Dash' that's my problem. It appears to have downloaded cos I can see reference to it within my home folder - /home/etc/apt .... so how to run it? – Keith Thomas May 16 '13 at 15:08
  • I added the command to start from terminal in my answer. Give it a try. – Mitch May 16 '13 at 17:43
