Mint 13 start up-manager

Postby dancingdog777 on Mon Oct 14, 2013 1:29 am

I have been using Mint 10 Julia for many years but have just installed Mint 13 on a slave hard drive with the intention of using it instead of Julia. I use a system of two hard drives with two versions of Mint and two versions of XP but in Mint 13 I've discovered that Startup Manager has been left out of the Control Panel so I can't customise which system I want to boot by default. I looked in 13's repos and couldn't find anything remotely similar so please can someone help?

Startup-manager is no longer available as this thread will explain.

Thanks. I wonder if there's a reason 'grub customiser' is not in the official repos as I had a good look last night typing in 'grub customiser'? I did find 'startup manager' but the installation crashed.

Silly thing is I had previously had it when I was using Mint 14 but had forgotten how to download it. Needed to replace 14 with 13 for long term support.

I suppose most people don't use more than one system on their computers so don't need it?

Anyway, thanks again.

Printed out the instructions for downloading grub customizer, did so, installed it and tried to open it for edit. It wasn't in Application> systems tools menu and it wouldnt open in terminal (4 channel rc helicopter) so I searched thru all applications looking for it.
