Installing burg

Postby LeafTheBerry on Sun Jan 20, 2013 2:59 pm

Hello.

First of all, I'd like to note that I'm a complete beginner. Today is the first time I installed linux.
After some research i decided to go for linux mint 14 (cinnamon). I really like it so far.

However I have one question. I saw some guides on how to install burg.

I followed this procedure:

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

But after restart, I'm still in grub. Can someone write down a complete newbie guide for me please? =D

edit: forgot to mention (don't know if it's importatnt, I'm dual-booting with windows8 )

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

i believe that this is part of the problem: if you have of the new windows8 certified hardware, you have also UEFI and burg has no (u)efi support (as far as i can see)
the second problem is that burg is a stalled project: they have now a new build (released 4 weeks ago) after 42 weeks without any activity (and in linux time 42 weeks is an eternity) and furthermore this new build is nothing more than the old one repackaged

First of all, I would like to thank you for quick reply.

That's really unfortunate, since i really liked the look of burg. Can i ask you if you know about any visual alternative?
Cause the plane text isn't that attractive =D

Thanks
