This user-friendly release allows to:

-set timeout

-set your favourite theme

-set the screen resolution

-add new themes by choosing them among the ones you can find on this site

-remove Burg

    Just one question: Is this a dead project? I’ve tried installing and the links don’t work and the terminal commands have a “line 52” error. I really hope this project isn’t dead as it was the THE best alternative to those crappy 90s, “BBS” looking menus that Linux leaves you with.
