How do I run Grub Customizer after installing?

Asked by Ray Beaven on 2018-05-10

I'm new to Ubuntu and have attempted to install Grub Customizer in 18.04. Firstly I have what looks like error messages, and secondly I don't know how to run it.

Terminal window extract:
>>>
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/burg -y && sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer -y && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes grub-customizer

E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/n-muench/burg/ubuntu bionic Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

1. 404 Not found and the last three lines don't look promising.
2. If I do successfully install and update, how do I run it?

The ppa:n-muench/burg does not contain any software for Ubuntu bionic, and this causes the "404" and last three lines messages.

Remove this PPA from your list of repositories.

It seems that the instructions that you followed are outdated.

Thanks, I'll remove the PPA.
