I love this BURG theme. Do you mind if I use this in my Linux distro that I'm making? I would love to have it as the default theme. It's perfect! :)

How to add Shutdown:

sudo vim /etc/burg.d/40_custom

(You don't have to use vim, just any text editor)
Add the following lines to the end of the file

menuentry 'Shutdown' --class shutdown {

(Save and exit text editor)

sudo update-burg

For those wondering how to add recovery, it's a bit more complicated.  Personally, I didn't mind, so I didn't look completely into the code, but this is the gist:

Look in /etc/grub.d/10_linux for something along the lines of if ($RECOVERY) and change the class of that entry to recovery (--class recovery).

sudo update-burg

For the person looking for Windows recovery, just duplicate your entry for Windows and change the boot partition for that entry to the first partition of that disk (where the Windows recovery partition resides).

Hey GodTamit! Thanks for the tips. I have a problem whit the recovery being shown. I looked in /etc/grub.d/10_linux and this is the line with ${RECOVERY}:

if ${recovery} ; then
   title="$(gettext_quoted "%s, with Linux %s (%s)")"
   printf "menuentry '${title}' ${CLASS} {\n" "${os}" "${version}" "$(gettext "${GRUB_RECOVERY_TITLE}")"
   title="$(gettext_quoted "%s, with Linux %s")"
   printf "menuentry '${title}' ${CLASS} {\n" "${os}" "${version}"

How *does* one go about adding recovery and shutdown as separate entries in grub/burg? For me recovery modes are folded into (if that's the correct turn of phrase) Ubuntu/Elementary's standard boot mode, and shutdown is nowhere to be seen.

Great burg theme by the way! Fit perfectly with the elementary design ethos IMHO. I do wish/hope GRUB2 starts to port BURG theme functionality (i.e. icon only menus, horizontal menus, etc) into GRUB2 proper. It seems wasteful to have a one-man fork, not to mention potentially unsustainable (for BURG) in the long term.
LuxieBlack Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012
I thought is a good idea XD
The shutdown is added manually, will appear by default in the update of the theme, in a few days.

Yeah everyone loves burg, but there isn't any distro using it :(
elgregorPL Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
I'm curious if this is a theme bug or BURG's bug:

Let's say that I have two Linux systems installed, like Ubuntu and eOS Luna. Icons would be from left to right: Ubuntu logo, elementary logo, recovery logo, another recovery logo, shutdown. Am I right? This way IDK which recovery is which.

Proposed solutions:

1. Make submenus for every main entry. (This would mean from left to right: Ubuntu, elementary, Shutdown. For booting elementary into recovery mode or using previous kernel you would open submenu of eOS. Eg. by pressing down arrow or 'm' key...)

2. Make one big 'Advanced' entry for stuff like recovery, booting previous kernels, etc. (This would mean from left to right: Ubuntu, elementary, Advanced, Shutdown.)
LuxieBlack Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012
Icons would be Ubuntu, Ubuntu (recovery), eOS, eOS (recovery). [for the recovery icon the '--class recovery' must be at first in the recovery menuentry instead of ubuntu and elementary]
1. Is already a feature for grouping entries: [link]
2. I prefer this but I think is not possible.

PD: for the shutdown entry you must edit burg.cfg and add:
menuentry "Shutdown" --class shutdown {
elgregorPL Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012
This makes sense.

"I prefer this but I think is not possible."
Everything is possible. But it may require some scripting and - in worst case - coding.

"you must edit burg.cfg"
I don't use BURG. But thanks for the info :)

Looks slick. I think the one thing I would change is the thickness of your strokes on the Recovery and Shutdown icons. The inner part of the icon has a very thick stroke, but the outside is very thin. it feels kind of weird to me.
LuxieBlack Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012
Yeah, I used the icons from /actions/symbolic/ from your elementary icons, and I had trouble changing the thickness. Can you help me to improve the icons?
