Ubuntu – How to install startupmanager in 12.04


I installed 12.04 today. I have two hard disks and separate OS. I want to install startupmanager.

I previously installed startupmanager in 11.10 for dual hard disk booting with XP but after 12.04 installation (fresh installation), startupmanager was not found in Software Center.

How do I install startupmanager on 12.04?

  • Startupmanager no longer exists in the 12.04 repositories.

    This application has been superseded by much better tools

    You can use excellent alternatives (but not in the official repositories):

    If you are looking about how to customise certain aspects of grub then there are great questions here on Ask Ubuntu:

    1. Decrease GRUB timeout
    2. How do I set Windows to boot as the default in the boot loader?
    3. GRUB background resolution and text?
    4. Change boot entry names and grub background?
