This is a theme for the BURG bootloader.

Make sure you have BURG installed before attempting to install this theme.

BURG homepage: http://code.google.com/p/burg/

========================================
Installation:

*Note: the instructions in the README are out of date. This will be corrected in the next release. Follow the install instructions on this page*

Extract files, then run:

sudo cp -r /*pathto*/Fortune-BURG-v03/fortune /boot/burg/themes/

*pathto* will be the directory which you downloaded the file to. Alternatively, you can use your file manager with root permissions.

Then, refresh BURG:

sudo update-burg

Finally, run the following to test and set your theme:

sudo burg-emu
========================================

Hi,

The theme looks great and I'm eager to run it, but the link is broken so I can't download it :(. I would happily provide a mirror for this theme if you'd like.

Shoot... erm, yeah, I could do with a copy myself as my site I was using for hosting seems to have deleted my file =| So either you can mirror it and ill append the link or Ill just grab a copy and host it somewhere more... reliable xD

Looks like that wont be neccesary. I grabbed a copy off the repo for Burg Manager, and I'm now hosting it on my Dropbox. Thanks for the offer of help though!

First of all: thanks a lot for the theme, is really cute and elegant.

Can you add the Trisquel GNU/Linux icon?
Like this, for example:

After much annoyance, I was able to add a Trisquel icon.

Steps:

Download the icons:
http://www.mediafire.com/?4a56ya8me5niu7p

Extract the tar to /boot/burg/themes/fortune/icons/ (Probably as sudo)

In /boot/burg/themes/fortune/icons/, edit the hover file and add:
-trisquel { image = "$$/grey_trisquel.png:$$/large_trisquel.png"
to the list.

Do sudo update-burg and you should have it. :)

Hopefully, I'll save someone the past couple hours of annoyance that I've had with doing that.

The line should be:
-trisquel { image = "$$/grey_trisquel.png:$$/large_trisquel.png" }

I'm multibooting on my netbook to see which O/S suits my needs best.

I'd love to see icons for JoliCloud and MeeGo. :)

Hey, i have burg installed on my ubuntu machine. After extracting your files.. when I enter
"sudo cp - r/home/aryaman/Themes/FortuneBurgTheme/Fortune-BURG/fortune /boot/burg/themes/"
with "/home/aryaman/Themes/FortuneBurgTheme"
as the directory which the files are extracted to. But the terminal gives me an error saying
"cp: cannot stat `/home/aryaman/Themes/FortuneBurgTheme/Fortune-BURG/fortune': No such file or directory"

Could someone please help me and show me where I have gone wrong?

That may be down to how I named the latest package. Try changing the /Fortune-BURG/ part of the command to /Fortune-BURG-v03/

Let me know. I'll amend the install instructions.

No it still doesn't work. I tried doing it via the file manager(nautilus) too but it said "There was an error moving the file into /boot/burg/themes."
and in the more details part it says "Error moving file: Permission denied" even though i am logged on as root. :'(

Thats odd. Have you tried running nautilus with the 'gksu nautilus' command, then copying across to /boot/burg/themes/ ?

You could also check the permissions on the fortune folder, however, I cannot replicate the issue on my 10.04 installation with either command line or GUI methods. My amended install instructions seemed to work fine.

Arch is Next on My list.

I had to redesign a vector template to fit with the faenza theme as best I could. Having never done vector before, I think its looking good.

Ill keep you posted :)
