Ubuntu – How to install startupmanager in 12.04


I installed 12.04 today. I have two hard disks and separate OS. I want to install startupmanager.

I previously installed startupmanager in 11.10 for dual hard disk booting with XP but after 12.04 installation (fresh installation), startupmanager was not found in Software Center.

How do I install startupmanager on 12.04?

Best Answer

Startupmanager no longer exists in the 12.04 repositories.

This application has been superseded by much better tools

You can use excellent alternatives (but not in the official repositories):

If you are looking about how to customise certain aspects of grub then there are great questions here on Ask Ubuntu:

  1. Decrease GRUB timeout
  2. How do I set Windows to boot as the default in the boot loader?
  3. GRUB background resolution and text?
  4. Change boot entry names and grub background?
