Ubuntu Radiance for Grub 2 [BURG]

GRUB Themes

6 .6
Description:

With ubuntu's new branding, GRUB needs a face-lifting too, and here it is.:)
To use this, you'll need burg, an updated version of grub 2.
There are two versions, one with text and one without text.

Here is how to instal BURG:
Add ppa:bean123ch/burg to software sources
sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes
Also check out the wiki for some in depth information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Burg


To use this theme:
Extract the tarball to /boot/burg/themes
sudo update-burg
While booting in the grub sereen, press 't'
In the theme selection menu, select radiance or Radiance Text.
If you select radiance text, I recommend editing /boot/burg/burg.cfg and making the menu entry names short for better presentation

Hi,

first very cool theme. But the edges of the icon look a little bit cut out. Especially for the windows icon. It is because of the background? In sora theme they look sharper.

I've add this theme to burg-themes 20100322, thanks a lot for the great work by shafin.

BTW, I make the following modification to the theme:

* As it shares icons with sora, I move them to themes/icons directory, and use this in theme to include it:

include ../icons/hover

* In style, add - before section name.
- means remove existing section before adding new setting, while default behavior is to merge. This would cause problem when you switch to other theme and switch back.

* In style of radiancetext, text color shouldn't be set to "white:white" otherwise you can't see the text in theme selection menu. This color should be set in template_menuitem section in theme file.

Hi there, thanks for BURG :D

Could you tell me how to add the Arch icon to sora_clean theme? It currently uses the unknown icon.

I want it to use this icon:

daas88, your arch icon looks better than current one. BTW, can you find a larger one ?

Sorry, I gave you the wrong icon.

This one is the same I showed you in the first comment, i hope the resolution is enough:

Thanks daas88, it's perfect. I'd change the arch linux icon in the next burg-themes package.

And this is the current arch burg icon, a bit better looking imo:

PD: Hey that radiance theme is awesome too, i can't decide between sora clean and radiance :D

Please visit the wiki here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Burg. It has a detailed explanation of how burg works, and I hope you'll find a solution to your problem there. The problem you are reporting is probably due to an error in configuration. Can you please check /boot/burg/burg.cfg and manually change the theme there?

thanks for replying. i got it figured out myself though.
anyone having problem with installing burg can go to this link and follow the steps.

http://code.google.com/p/burg/wiki/InstallUbuntu

the basic mistake we normally do is not following the last step i.e. install-burg "hd0"

hope it helps!

its burg'd, so edit etc/default/burg instead :), and don't forget to run update-burg afterwards.

Then edit plain old /boot/burg/burg.cfg. In this case, no update-burg is needed, and actually you'll need to repeat the hack after each burg-update.

This instalation notes misses some steps to realy instal and configure burg to use this theme.

there is a lot more to do it!

You must to install burg themes, and others burg features to work, editing a burg configuration, and set the burg the new boot manager. Please, update the Instalation instructions! I had problems before to fix the wrong instalation.

In my experience, using these commands worked well, and nothing more was needed. However, I'm going to add a link to butg wiki for anyone interested in a deeper description.
