kgrubeditor is not in the current 'buntu 10.04 repositories. You can get it from sourceforge and compile it from source if you wish.

But I wonder why you would bother, because grub is easy to configure by editing its configuration files. They are just text files, easily read and modified.

What are you trying to accomplish, and why do you feel you need kgrubeditor ?

It hasn't been in the Ubuntu repos since jaunty.

All you need is a text editor.

KGRUBEditor is for grub "version 1".

Will not work with the new 'grub 2' in Ubuntu 10.04.

... Sorry, I have no solution for your request.


( I use 'lilo' in Ubuntu 10.04 and a chainloader to boot
13 installed Linux OS, each with either 'grub 1' or 'lilo'.)

Thank You for your answer.
I guess I'll have to maybe get a different Distro that maybe allows kgrubeditor. I am not sure which Distro to try.

How about never editing a grub menu.lst ?

That's what an "automatic chainloader" can do :
Finding your grubs, windows, BSD loader, lilo etc. on all partitions,
and boot the OS. No edits.

One example : http://gag.sourceforge.net/ GAG.
( I use "Smart Boot Manager".)
