Re: GUI to Edit Grub2

The only reference I could find is a link to the "grub-customizer" which is from the Ubuntu launchpad: https://launchpad.net/grub-customizer/+download. That is the source code so you would have to compile it, maybe even necessary to install some dependencies.

Good luck with it.

Re: GUI to Edit Grub2

Thanks for the tip. Might look at that but I don't need it as I boot to Fedora only - no Windows.

Was looking for an easy GUI to recommend to a friend. He will not like compiling anything.
His system boot Fedora and Win XP.

There was a discussion on the Kororaa forums a while ago about these - https://kororaa.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=329. Kororaa is a Fedora remix so comments there generally refer to Fedora as well.

This looks pretty good:

I will give it a go tonight. Personally I have yet to see the point of Grub2, it seems to be a classic case of fixing something that wasn't broken.

The thing I liked about grub, compared to LILO, was you could easily edit it with a simple text editor. Now all that has gone for no appreciable benefit that i can see.

And generated calls for yet-another-editor-for-specific-files....

There are so many now... each subsystem seems to have one or more (and frequently don't work quite right).

Try this link

http://koji.russianfedora.ru/koji/bu...o?buildID=1708

The package is awaiting review but IMO it's passed but I'm unable to sponsor it.

I tried this last night, it works very well. The only problem I had was setting a background image. Does the image have to be a specific type, size, location?

Thanks - I used the app for two friends who dual boot. Easy to set up and easy to set the two options both friends wanted. Delay time set to 10 seconds and default OS changed.

I downloaded and stored both 32 bit and 64 bit versions in case anyone I know wants copies.
