Grub Manager.

Post by tejprakashbohra »

There is no "GUI Grub Manager" pre-installed in Linux Mint. So no option to change default boot OS in multi-boot PC in graphical way.

I do that always for every new version of Linux Mint, but I think Linux Mint should have it's
own Grub Manager in control panel.

I would also suggest that Grub-Customizer become a standard install and or added to official repository. It's helped me many times recently in a multiboot environment when I've added another distro which either errored and failed to update grub during the OS install so I used Grub-customizer to scan for and add new OS's or also in the case where a distro actually totally screwed up grub and left me without one which open Suse did recently and I was able to use a live CD of LM16 put in my network settings and download Grub-Customizer to fix things. Might have been easier if it was actually one of the programs installed in the live cd. Brilliant program and very user friendly for newbies.
