Can't be installed

Asked by Russ on 2013-10-20

I have been using the same 3 commands to install this for the last few years, but today I am having no joy. I think it is related to launchpad removing things that aren't main or universe but im not sure. Im using ubuntu 11.04, any help much appreciated

Several 404, and failed to download errors. please see below.

Natty is outdated (support expired) this is the reason of the 404s. The better way is upgrading to 12.04 or newer.

However the grub customizer ppa should still work.

Just do sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

If it says that it's missing the dependency "menu", you can download the 10.04 (this version because it's still supported) version from here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/menu

Can you help with this problem?
