I wanted to ask what graphical GRUB editors are there for the latest Ubuntu release (13.10)? And how do I install one? I searched through the Ubuntu Software Center but I can't find anything there.

Please provide very clear and basic instructions.


You can use Grub Customizer. The Grub Customizer PPA now is available for Ubuntu 13.10. To install, 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
