Tutorial: Ubuntu 12.04 / 11.04 / 10.10 / 10.04 – Grub 2 with Themes

In this post, I will show you how to install grub 2 with themes so that you can replace the standard text-based grub menu with something that looks a bit nicer. This tutorial will use code which is under development, so it may be best not to use on an important machine. We will actually replace grub with something called burg, which is a developmental branch of grub.
