A new package called Burg is a boot loader based on the Grub engine and uses an icon based menu selection at startup, a feature the latter lacks.
How to install Burg in Ubuntu Linux?
Run the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bean123ch/burg
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes
After that, you have to install the boot loader
sudo burg-install /dev/???
Where ??? corresponds to your Ubuntu Linux drive. Mine was located at sda.
Now, update the boot configuration
