 Looks fine here

Hi, it looks fine here, it asks for root authorification and then reads the grub config.

I haven't tried the "apply" button yet, but everything looks fine, all the data is read including in the advanced tab.

You could use a KUrlRequester for the wallpaper image, and maybe a color chooser in X mode for the colors...

Super cool, very nice to be able to configure grub in a GUI :)

Yeah, definitely it will be translatable. This is just a preview release, anyway. It's lacking lots of stuff.

Just following the "release early, release often" scheme.

 Extraneous quotes

Very an cool and usefull kcm module.

It seems to work fine except :

- every key value in /etc/defaulkt/grub is saved single quoted, I don't think this is necessary and it prevents grub-mkconfig from evaluating values. eg. on debian, GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR is default to Quote:
`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
, and evaluated as Quote:
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 2.6.32-5-amd64
by grub-mkconfig. When quoted, menuentries are Quote:
`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
which is less sexy...

- When applying changes, kcm_grub2 launch grub-mkconfig but UI does not show any activity, it would be usefull to invalidate buttons or at least to show a busy cursor.

Thanks and hope this will help.

You miss the org.kde.kcontrol.kcmgrub2.service file which installs under /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/. Also kcm_grub2.desktop misses from /usr/share/kde4/services/ which is perhaps why you don't see any module installed. And you have installed some files under /usr/ and some other under /usr/local/. Did you mean to do so?

I managed to create a .deb file using the following CMakeLists.txt:

http://paste.kde.org/7050/

The result is: https://pithos.grnet.gr/pithos/rest/ece7626@upatras.gr/files/kcm_grub2-0.2.0.deb

I don't know if it's working, I can't test since I am on Arch. However I must note that the dependencies are definitely wrong (needs KDE>=4.4) and the architecture is not properly set.

Nice, but as I mentioned it needs KDE>=4.4.

And indeed my package was 64bit, that could explain why it didn't work for you.

ok i have made,
i have used this cmakelist

http://paste.kde.org/7052/
as you can see here

set(CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_DEPENDS "systemsettings (>= 4:4.4.0)")

i guess should work from

lucid to natty (10.04 10.10 11.04)

systemsettings (4:4.4.2-0ubuntu14) lucid

No, it's ok, not a bug. Debian-derived distributions use this command to determine the name (Ubuntu in your case), instead of hard-coding it. Try typing it in a shell and see what it returns ;)

Thanks for the package.

It is another GRUB2 KCModule but it's written in Python and more simplified I would say.

I've been quite some time on this idea though (have read tons of GRUB2 documentation) and didn't want to waste all this effort, so I published this KCModule, along with the other one, owned by user kbios.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
