Customize burg Background Manually
A friend of mine was really impressed with Burg Boot Loader.He installed it on his Acer Laptop running Linux Mint.After a few days he came and told me that he was not satisfied with the default burg themes.So I told him about Burg-Manager which can install additional Burg Themes.He was still not satisfied.He wanted to use his own image as background in the boot menu.So I pointed him to Theme Customization
But he found the instructions a bit confusing and too general.He wanted a specific and simple guide on changing the background image of any Burg Theme.
So here I am with a simple guide to customizing the Burg Background.The following instructions are for Ubuntu and its derivatives like Linux Mint.
- Press Alt-F2 and type gksu nautilus.Enter your password when prompted.
- Click on File System and navigate to boot/burg/theme
- Open folder of the theme whose background you want to customize.For example open radiance
- Here you can see a image called background.png. There may be other images files also.In some themes, background image may be named differently.It may also be inside a subfolder.You can just open each image file and find out which is the background image.
- Now that you have found the background image,you can either edit it or replace it.NOTE:Make sure the new image file has same dimensions and format as the file that is being replaced.
Thats it.Hope you liked this guide.
