grub2 editor kde

GRUB2 Editor for KDE is a KDE Control Module that lets you configure the GRUB2 bootloader: manage the default boot entry, boot timeout, resolution, menu colors and theme, Linux Kernel arguments, recover GRUB2, remove old entries, create and preview GRUB2 splash images and more.

GRUB2 Editor 0.5.5 has been released today, and it includes two new features:
  • experimental BURG support. For now, it only supports commands shared with GRUB2
  • option to disable Plymouth (see under Advanced > Linux Kernel Arguments drop-down)

The new version also includes various bug fixes, including proper GRUB detection for Fedora and openSUSE, fix encoding issues by supporting UTF-8 and more.

The latest GRUB2 Editor 0.5.5 can be downloaded via kde-apps.org - there are pre-built packages and repositories for Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE, Arch and source files.

For GNOME, see GRUB Customizer (supports BURG too).
