Burg is a brand-new boot loader based on GRUB. It uses a new object format which allows it to be built in a wider range of OS, including Linux/Windows/OSX/Solaris/FreeBSD, etc. It also has a highly configurable menu system which works in both text and graphic mode.
I have written a tutorial about decorate grub 2 boot loader using Burg, and that’s in CLI. Now Burg-Manager, a GUI front-end for Burg has been released by IngAlex & Canopus0003 & Tux10.
Burg-Manager supports install/remove burg,restore burg into MBR,install beautiful themes,set default OS/timeout/suitable resolution,boot iso, and so on.
Step 1: Remove previous installed Burg with following commands (skip this step if not ever install):
sudo apt-get purge burg-manager sudo rm -rf ~/.burg-manager sudo rm -rf /root/.burg-manager
Step 2: Install BUC, open up a terminal window from Applications -> Accessories menu and run this command:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
for i386 user, add this line to the end and save the file:
deb http://buc.billera.eu/ubuntu/ binary/
for amd64 user, add this:

Then, update repository and install BUC:

Step 3: Now, download the deb package of Burg-Manager. Double-click on the package to install, or use:
