Install Grub Customizer On Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal”

Grub Customizer allows the user to add, remove, freeze, rename and reorder boot menu items. It will also allow changes to the Grub 2 configuration settings such as background image and menu timeout. For long-time users familiar with StartUp-Manager, this application performs many of the same capabilities with additional options.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

To start Grub Customizer click on the Applications launcher in the left panel and type: grub-customizer

check, check and check, I have all these I’m able to play mp3 and any type of audio format, not DVD’s though before anyone has a smart remark, yes I have a DVD player. I even did the whole region thing still nothing. I would like to be able to play dvds since my kids love watching movies usually at the time I’m watching the news or a movie.

dmesg | tail or so

I had a feeling, but wasn’t sure if I should ask. I guess it’s like a superhero kind of thing.
