GRUB2 Editor v0.5.5

GRUB2 Editor received another bugfix release today. This is mostly a boring release: no fancy new features so you may as well skip reading.


v.0.5.5 (09/01/2012)


*ADDED: Experimental BURG support (only commands shared with GRUB2).
*ADDED: Option to disable Plymouth (Advanced -> Linux Kernel Arguments).
*FIXED: Fedora/openSUSE: the GRUB installation is now properly detected.
*FIXED: Encoding issue (UTF-8 encoding is now supported).
*FIXED: A QPackageKit backend bug where previous results were returned.

Please note that BURG “experimental” support is barely tested. The only testing I performed was whether it crashes or not.

Available Translations:

Catalan, Czech, Danish, German, Greek, Spanish, Estonian, French, Irish [Gaelic], Hungarian, Lithuanian, Dutch, Panjabi/Punjabi, Polish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Ukrainian, Traditional Chinese.

I would like to thank all KDE translators who were involved. Their work is very much appreciated!


There are packages for most major distributions. Please take a look at the Downloads page.

  1. You should check modern KDE KCM’s with the new style of writting such interface, for example without the box and u sing agateau class for alinging stuff.

    Also, little bit more of usability would be great prioritizing the most important actions and the like.

  5. Has anyone got this working with GRUB2 and FEDORA 16?
    I’ve followed the steps above, but I can’t seem to get the GRUB2 Editor module working. All I get is “No valid GRUB2/BURG installation could be detected!”.
