KGRUBEditor is no longer under active development.


KGRUBEditor is a KDE utility, that edits GRUB's configuration files through an inituitive user interface. It combines both ease of use with flexibility and is the perfect solution for those who want to configure GRUB, without messing with its files.

This version is bugfix-only, meaning it contains no new features, only improvements over the previous version major version (0.8.1).

It should be ultra-stable so please report any bugs you come across.

For installation instructions check the INSTALL file inside the source tarball.

The source code is fully documented so you may freely take a look at it and post comments/fixes. You may check the latest SVN version using this SVN repository:

In order to stay up-to-date with the SVN repository at any time follow these instructions:

mkdir -p ~/Development/svn/kgrubeditor && mkdir -p ~/Development/Builds/kgrubeditor
cd ~/Development/svn/kgrubeditor
svn co https://kgrubeditor.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/kgrubeditor kgrubeditor/
cd ../../Builds/kgrubeditor
cmake ../../svn/kgrubeditor/trunk/ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr && make && sudo make install

From now on in order to update your local copy do the following:

cd ~/Development/svn/kgrubeditor
svn up
cd ../../Builds/kgrubeditor
make && sudo make install

Some packages are of course required. For [K]ubuntu the following command will install the minimum required to compile KGRUBEditor:

sudo apt-get install subversion kdelibs5-dev build-essential

 KGRUBEditor default selection

 by wjbite on: Nov 4 2008
Score 50%

I would like to see one more option to the default selections.
Before we had this cool GRUB editor I used to make this entry in menu.lst:
default saved
The radio buttons for selection only allow you to select ONE of the menu entries in the menu - resulting in the menu.lst file being edited with a number like:
default 4
I would be nice if you had a radio button at the bottom of that screen that would say something like "default is the last used operating system"
that would result in a line being inserted that says:
default saved.
Thanks for your good work!

Yes, this feature was available in all KGRUBEditor versions before 0.8.x.

However in the 0.8 release there were heavy changes in the user interface and this checkbox was silently dropped.

It is planned to be included in the next version but I don't know how close this will be. There has been no active development in it for about 1-2 months due to my limited free time..

I like this software very much! It seems Karmic will most likely ship with GRUB 2. It would be great to see this tool supporting GRUB 2 so people can use it in Karmic+!

I don't know if it is the case now..?

No, this is not the case and I don't know if GRUB2 support will make it for Karmic.

I am too busy to actively develop KGRUBEditor so the development goes on at a very slow pace.

Hopefully I will make a new release (0.9.0) soon, with changes I have been working on for quite some time now. After this, maybe I will try to recruit someone else to maintain the project :S

Plus, I can't find some decent GRUB2 documentation. I can't obviously guess the file syntax of GRUB2. I need some good reference documentation as with GRUB (Legacy).

Is there anything new on a perspective for porting this to grub2, so that it can be used again? Would be a shame when this great app disappeared.

Nothing new yet, expect something to come from this summer 2010 and after.

Actually a German community contacted me to inform me that they wanted to develop a KGrub2Editor, but I'm not sure what the current condition of the project is. I think it is stalled, though.

I've installed this in Ubuntu 10.04, worked through all the steps and everything seemed to work, no error messages - but I can't find the program - it doesn't appear in any menu and using the terminal yields "command not found". What went wrong?

(Incidentally, I installed QGrubeditor before this, and it does appear in the menu, does not work, and for some reason is not recognised as being there by "Main menu" under System > Preferences.)

QGRUBEditor and KGRUBEditor work only with GRUB Legacy, not GRUB 2 which is by default instealled with (K)Ubuntu 10.04.

Check your GRUB version using the "grub-install -v" command. If you get a version number >=1.96 (eg. 1.98 or so) it means you have GRUB 2 installed and both of the above applications are useless.

There is ongoing work on a GRUB 2 configuring application, it should be ready within a month approximately.

There are good and bad news.

Good news is that the library for manipulating GRUB2 basic configuration settings is code-wise almost complete (shouldn't take more than a few days to complete).

Bad news is that it needs a lot of documentation and due to vacation it was kind of abandoned again. Plus, it's just a library - no user interface is available.

Perhaps I should work on it for a couple of weeks and complete it *at last*, but I can't seem to find the freaking time to do it..

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.
