I put together a theme for Burg called Sora.  I got a friend of mine to design it, and I thought it came out pretty well so if anyone else is interested here it is.  I haven't put much work into getting the non-graphics mode working just yet, hopefully it'll look better down the road.  Screenshots in the next post.

To install just unzip the file sora-v0_3 into the /boot/grub/themes directory.

There are also a couple of sub-themes for it, a 'clean' version without text over the icons and an 'extended' version that'll hopefully fit entries with long names like the ones grub automatically generates.
You can choose the theme in your /boot/grub/grub.cfg or /etc/grub.d/40_custom and running update-grub, by adding the one of the lines:
. /boot/grub/themes/sora/theme.cfg
. /boot/grub/themes/sora/clean/theme.cfg
. /boot/grub/themes/sora/extended/theme.cfg

There's also two icon packs, I originally made the version that didn't pop, but decided I wanted the pop, but I left the other icon pack in just in case.
Available icon classes for these icon packs are: ubuntu, windows, osx and linux I can add more if there's any interest.
You can change the icon pack/screen resolution in sora/theme.cfg

The theme is designed to run at 1920x1200 resolution but it scales pretty well.

Cheers,
Evan

Hi,

BTW, I just upload it to the files section of
http://groups.google.com/group/burg-devel so that others can find it
more easier.

Your /etc/grub.d/40_custom file should contain only that last line ( . /boot/grub/themes/sora/clean/
theme.cfg ) , after the comments.  Remember to run grub-update after modifying that file. And you're going to want to change that 'set gfxmode=' line in the file /boot/grub/themes/sora/theme.cfg

But it is strange, I would still expect you to not be seeing the default screen with that config.  Just to make sure, can you print your output of dpkg -l | grep grub-pc

Hi,
The gfxmode="1600x900" or "1920x1200" as in /boot/grub/themes/sora/
theme.cfg might be a problem.

grub> vbeinfo will show supported resolutions for grub-pc.

Well thats not the problem.

Perhaps you could describe the "default menu" you do see, - can you
boot linux?

Here is a listing of the burg -r 1778 modules for grub pc build which I am using to run sora.
You should have them all in /boot/grub/, or else need to reinstall burg  (grub-install).

The standard ubuntu modules will not run the burg menu or sora. Possibly an update may have overwritten burg modules and boot code.

That is OK then.

The boot screen you posted does not match your previous post of
grub.cfg, there has been some change to grub.cfg, you can recheck
that. If you have another linux system /boot/grub/ it can be a
problem.

Apart from that I can only suggest re-install burg.
You might get some better help with booting multi systems from
ubuntuforums.org.

Oh, and make sure the /boot/grub/themes and sora installation is
correct.

i have two version of linux kernel : the 2.6.31-16 and the 2.6.32.3 it can be a problem?
However, i'll try to reinstall burg, perhaps from source code.

Hi,

Perhaps you can try the ppa5, the config is much simpler, no need to
edit 40_custom manually, Document:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Burg

It's updated for the latest version: ppa5 (bzr r1786).

The problem can be the lack of the line GRUB_THEME= in /etc/default/grub?
I have added this line and i have update grub, but this is the output:
davide@davide:~$ sudo update-grub
Generating grub.cfg ...
Theme file not found.
In the tutorial at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Burg, are wrote that i must only add the name of the theme, but the update-grub returns the same error, i have also tried to add the entire directory of the theme (/boot/grub/theme ecc..) but the result are the same.
Obviously i have update burg at the last version.

Hi,

You skip the step of downloading themes from files section of
http://groups.google.com/group/burg-devel, and extract to /boot/grub.
The files has been updated, old one doesn't work. After it, you should
see files in the following directory:

/boot/grub/fonts/
/boot/grub/sora/

Hey Bean,

I think the .cfg files in the updated archive still point at /boot/grub/themes/...

Hi,

It should be:

GRUB_THEME=sora

You also need to set screen resolution as the default value 640x480 is
too small for sora:

GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768

error: no module specified
error: file name required
Entering rescue mode ...
error: Invalid mode : auto

Hi,

Besides update-grub, you also need to install burg to mbr using grub-install.

Hi,

No, you only need to run grub-install once after upgrade from grub to
burg, or different ppa package. BTW, this is assuming you're using the
pc version, you shouldn't use grub-install for EFI boot.

If it still doesn't work, please paste the content of the grub.cfg.
