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.

  1. Press Alt-F2 and type gksu nautilus.Enter your password when prompted.
  2. Click on File System and navigate to boot/burg/theme
  3. Open folder of the theme whose background you want to customize.For example open radiance
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
