Burg-Manager: installing and configuring Burg has never been so easy

Burg-Manager, by Ingalex &  Canopus0003, is a BUC-based program. The aim is an easy management of the BURG boot-loader through a simple and intuitive GUI, with no need to use terminal commands.

This user-friendly release allows to:

-install Burg, Burg-themes and a Burg emulator

-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

-restore Grub2

-setting the default operating sistem

-setting advanced parameters


The following features will be implemented very soon:

-setting menuentries to boot some operating sistems directly from iso files.

If you want to help us in developing this project, please contact us . Always new ideas or suggestions are welcome.

Here you can see some screenshots about burg-manager.

If you want to work with Burg-Manager, you have to install BUC from:

Once you have installed BUC, download the debian package of burg-manager for your architecture.

Arch Name Version Download Downloads
i386 burg-manager 1.0.0


amd64 burg-manager 1.0.0


Then you can install Burg-Manager on your pc:

sudo dpkg -i burg-manager*

You will find burg-manager in applications>system

Obviously as you can see the project is still in an “embryonic” state, therefore I’m not be responsible for any problem resulting from the burg-manager.

Install burg-manager from repository

It’s possible to install and update burg-manager directly from repository. To do this, follow these steps:

Add this line to the file /etc/apt/sources.list:

    I’m having problem with my repository. Netsons hosting service has changed something and i don’t know why apt give this error. But i’m trying to solve this problem.
    But you could install burg-manager and buc downloading debin file from link that you find in this post. Here you find buc debian package. In the table in this post you find burg-manager debian file. When you have dowloaded the two debian files you have install it executing:
    sudo dpkg -i burg-manager* buc*
    I’m sorry for the inconvenience

  6. ph deliz ha detto:

    Apos instalar o BURG a inicialização do O.S escolhido fica em modo texto gostaria de saber se é possivel alterar para o modo grafico como usado no grub?

  7. Filipo Tardim ha detto:

    Ph Deliz, percebi aqui que apenas o primeiro kernel fica com o modo gráfico (plymouth), enquanto os outros ficam em modo texto.
    Verifique no Burg Manager, em parâmetros avançados, se o CMDLINE está com a opção “quiet splash”. Se estiver OK e mesmo assim você estiver com o boot em modo texto, tente os seguintes comandos pelo terminal:
    sudo update-alternatives –config default.plymouth
    e depois
    sudo update-initramfs -u

  14. jeff ha detto:

    is there an english version of buc? Everything I try to do comes up in Italian I believe.

  15. Ingalex ha detto:

    buc is made by italians but it’s not in italian. buc is a C interpreter to create simply interfaces, gui using xml.

  16. Maury ha detto:

    L’ho scritto anche dalla parte italiana, ma l’ultimo post era un po’ datato allora ho postato anche qui.
    Dopo l’installazione tutto ok ma non mi funziona.
    Dopo il riavvio è sempre presente il grub2.
    Anche cambiando i temi o i settaggi e salvando le impostazioni , al riavvio non funziona proprio.
    Come risolvere ? Grazie

  18. canopus0003 ha detto:

    @ Maury
    se usi l’emulatore di burg funziona? se si, vuol dire che devi solo sovrascrivere sull’MBR. Apri un terminale e dai: sudo burg-install /dev/sda && sudo update-burg

  19. Xanthus ha detto:

    Is this compatible with Ubuntu 10.10?

  20. Ingalex ha detto:

    Yes sure! Soon we are going to release latest version of burg-manager

  21. Kaie ha detto:

    The installer only gives me the options of /dev/fuse and /dev/sdb .. my boot is on /sda.

    Now i assume it has to go on the boot drive.

    Am i SOL?

  22. Ingalex ha detto:

    It’s very strange. You are the first to say it to me.
    The installer doesn’t show partition but only hard disk or pen drive, so i don’t know how can be proposed fuse that refer to an ntfs partition. Default installer value is /dev/sda.

  23. Kaie ha detto:

    Well, I assume its because i have Boot & win7 on drive0 / dev/sda. And my actual linux install on drive1 / dev/sdb.

    I have it this way because my laptop’s BIOS wont boot from drive1 / dev/sdb.

    I’m using Debian Testing.

    Could I install burg and burg-manager without problems?

    If so, how could I restore Grub2 in case I have problems?


  26. Ingalex ha detto:

    burg-manager has been tested only with K/Ubuntu 9.10 ,10.04 and 10.10, burg can be installed with all linux distribution. But i think that burg-manager can be installed without problems also on Debian Testing.
    burg-manager has also a function to restore Grub2 and remove Burg.
    We are going to release versione 0.3.0 of burg-manager.

  28. A. Buze ha detto:

    Why don’t you make ppa?
    Installation would become much easier.

  29. Ingalex ha detto:

    I’ve a ppa launchpad repository, but i’ve not understood how to create sources to satisfy launchpad requirement and how to upload it. Any help is pleased. 🙂

    il mio commento su burg e burg manager é più che positivo sono riuascito ad installarlo sul portatile e sul desktop con addiritura 4 os ci manca solo MAC OS Leopard e …..magari

  33. Ingalex ha detto:

    Guarda ti do un’esclusiva. Nel porting gambas del burg-manager che cercheremo di rilasciare appena possibile, ci sarà anche la possibilità di bootare Leopard tramite il chainload. 🙂 Ti ringrazio per il i complimenti.

  34. […] sounded too difficult and I didn’t bother at the time. Luckily the day after they wrote about Burg-Manager a graphical way to install and configure BURG. To install I just ran the following […]

  35. Gagan ha detto:

    I installed this with the .deb package but when i clicked “burg-install” and rebooted, grub was still there. It said “Operation completed succesfully” each time I clicked “burg-install”

    I tried installing “burg-emu” from the command line and it installed correctly so i went ahead and installed the rest. About to test if it worked, but just posting to say that its giving false positives.

  36. Ingalex ha detto:

    Thanks to have reported this information.

  37. MicroHelper ha detto:

    Hey, I have installed the BUC FIRST, then brug.

    When I start it up through
    Applications>System Tools> Burg-manager

    It says to type in root password. I do (Which is my Password)
    But nothing comes up… 🙁 HELP!

  38. Ingalex ha detto:

    You have to write your root password in the box, the same password that you have chosen when you have installed Ubuntu and that you use to make system upgrade.

  39. MicroHelper ha detto:

    Okay, thank you for the reply.
    But I realized in this post and videos on YouTube.
    That this is for Kubuntu, correct?

    It wouldn’t work on Ubuntu. You noticed that is why I would try to type in my password as root but nothing comes up on Ubuntu.
    But I have Kubuntu installed in a partition.(Ubuntu was installed first)
    Does my laptop need to be installed with Kubuntu Fully?
    Rather because it conflicts with Grub 2 on Ubuntu?

  40. Ingalex ha detto:

    Burg-manager works good on Ubuntu and derived linux distribution such as Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Mint….
    It recognizes all installed Operative Systems unless some exception. There are not conflicts.

  41. diablomarcus ha detto:

    Any chance that there is an easy way to get this working in Debian squeeze? I hunted around but wasn’t willing to risk destroying my system 🙂

  42. Ingalex ha detto:

    I think that it can work good also in Debian Squeeze, but i’ve not tested it. However, in the worst cases you can restore grub using a live cd.

  43. Rob ha detto:

    Followed instructions exactly as listed on this site. But when loading burg-manager, I get no images or text in any of the buttons so I have no idea what anything does.
    Possibly because you built it for Ubuntu system layout rather than debian.

    Possibly the issue might also be that many ubuntu/debian users dont allow root login, not sure how your “root window” is being controlled, but should support sudo ?

  44. Ingalex ha detto:

    We have not tested it on Debian but only on K/Ubuntu. Sorry I don’t know how to help you. But if you want you can collaborate to adapt it for Debian and to test it.

  45. Tris ha detto:

    This was available in the Ubuntu Software Center for me… May be an easier way for some people to get it

    Applications > Ubuntu Software Center
    search for burg
    select and install burg manager

  46. Chigypt210 ha detto:

    I installed the applications from my friend’s aptoncd image…….and the kernel was updated but the older kernel was left, how can i remove it from the system……please i need an imediate help from u people…. 🙂

  47. Ingalex ha detto:

    1) Execute from terminal:
    sudo update-burg
    So burg menu will be updated with new kernel
    2) Then reboot choosing new kernel from Burg.
    3) Start burg-manager and use function into second tab “Paramethers” to remove old kernel.
