How to clean up GRUB?

(1/2) > >>

GRUB customizer worked fine.
I have advice for anyone who will use it: save after each step, for example if u delete one entry-save, move one entry up- save, add submenu-save and so on..., dont just make all the changes at once and save em then because i did that and there was some kind of error so i had to go all over again.

Mission accomplished. grub edited successfuly

Thank you gold finger, that worked and i learned something new: -> (read lines in terminal, dont just put commands and keep pressing enter  ???)
Now, GRUB Customizer is installed, i will tinker with it tomorrow and post results.
Hopefully i wont blow something up.

gold_finger:
Open terminal and enter only these two again:


--- Code: ---sudo apt-get update
--- End code ---

--- Code: ---sudo apt-get install grub-customizer
--- End code ---

From your output in last post, after this:

--- Code: ---sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer
 More info: https://launchpad.net/~danielrichter2007/+archive/grub-customizer
Press [ENTER] to continue or ctrl-c to cancel adding it
--- End code ---

You were supposed to just hit enter to add the ppa.  It appears as though that is when you typed sudo apt-get update and then hit enter.  If that's what you did, then it probably just registered the "enter", but not the update command.  So, when you tried to install, the package lists were not updated to reflect the addition of the ppa source.  That's my guess at least based on what the output appears to show.

dodo:
Hm, after running these commands in terminal, looks like there is some kind of error

DANGER, Will Robinson!   DANGER, Will Robinson!   DANGER, Will Robinson!  DANGER, Will Robinson!   DANGER, Will Robinson!   DANGER, Will Robinson!   DANGER, Will Robinson!   DANGER, Will Robinson!

Ty for instructions, i didn't watch "Lost in Space"
Will try GRUB customizer and hopefully i won't get stuck in time-space continuum.
