Ubuntu :: Remove Unnecessary Entries In Grub Boo Menu?

Oct 30, 2010

I've got a dual boot PC with windows 7 & Ubuntu. I had installed Ubuntu 10.04 & recently upgraded it to 10.10. Now I have these entries in the boot menu.

Ubuntu with linux 2.6.35-22-generic
Ubuntu with linux 2.6.35-22-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu with linux 2.6.32-21-generic
Ubuntu with linux 2.6.32-21-generic (recovery mode)
Memory test (memtest 86+)
Memory test (memtest 86+, serial console 115200)
Windows 7 (loader) (on/dev/sda1)

First & second entries listed above don't work. How can I remove them safely?

Ubuntu :: Can't Remove Extra Entries From GRUB 2 Menu?

Jun 6, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 dual booted with Windows XP. Ever since I installed 9.10, I get a long list of OS's (actually, multiple repeats of what appears to be the same Ubuntu install), and I can't get rid of them.I've looked through various tutorials and the GRUB 2 Community documentation (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2) but I still can't get rid of the menu items.I edited the 40_custom file and was able to add the entries I wanted to see, and then chmoded 644 all the other files in the /etc/grub.d directory and run update-grub.The custom entries do appear at the end of the menu now, but the old entries are still there as well. This is what I get when I run the update-grub:

Code:
yoodle@HANSOLO:/etc/grub.d$ sudo update-grub
Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub

OpenSUSE :: Wine - Remove Menu Entries After Uninstalling Programs?

May 26, 2011

The only MS program I need on my computer is Word 2007 for the equation editor to write/edit files from work. So after installing Wine I installed MSOffice2007. Excel worked OK (although I don't need it - I am perfectly happy with the Libre Office spreadsheet). Word however froze each time so I tried to uninstall and reinstall it. However I always got an error message when trying to uninstall with Wine. So I followed the advice of some strands in this forum and deleted the Program Files folder from the ~.wine directory. However the menus are still in Wine/Programs/Microsoft Office even though they lead to nowhere. I tried to reinstall but still I nothing happened. I presume the old entries still lead to the position where previously the .exe files were located. Now my question is either how can I remove these menu entries and try installing again - or even better - is there a Linux programme that can read/edit the equations written in Word 2007?

Ubuntu :: Remove Autogenerated Grub 2 Entries?

Jan 8, 2010

How can I remove entries manually that were automatically generated by grub 2? I have the scripts I need to add my entries, but I don't want the osprober to keep adding new entries. Even if I make the 30_osprober script non-executable, the entries are still there. Can I do this without "breaking the rules" and editing the grub.cfg file?

Ubuntu :: Grub 2 Menu - Duplicate Entries

Dec 5, 2010

For the past few weeks I have been using the lastest Ubuntu OS. The following menu pops-up during the boot process.

GNU GRUB version 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu3
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae (recovery mode)
Memory test (mentest86+)
Memory test (mentest86+, serial console 115200)
Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sdb1)

Just recently the menu displays duplicate entries. The first two entries are repeated (see below). What might have caused these duplicate entries to appear and how to correct them? Before this problem occurred I did not issue any sudo commands.

GNU GRUB version 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu3
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae (recovery mode)

Ubuntu :: Cleaning Up Dead Entries In Grub 2 Menu?

Jul 18, 2010

I have two leftover entries in the Grub2 menu after running update-grub. One is leftover from an Ubuntu installation under Windows 7 referring to a Vista boot. Never had Vista on my system, and if I were to select this option it will lock my computer. Same deal with an older Jaunty boot option - as I have identical worded options one good and one dead option.

If I have to live with these two dead selections on my Grub2 menu I will. But I'd rather get rid of them. I don't want to use an old tool for Grub editing that is no longer workable for Grub 2.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Remove Old Kernels And Their Grub Entries

Aug 1, 2010

I have a grub menu with a ton of old kernel entries that I want to delete. I've scoured this forum, and haven't found anything that works. I've tried:

Code:"the easiest way to get rid of old kernels from grub is to uninstall the package, the post-install scripts will update grub

for example my current kernel is:

uname -a
Linux hemma 2.6.31-16-generic #53-Ubuntu SMP Tue Dec 8 04:02:15 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux

then remove older kernels found in /boot like this:

sudo aptitude remove linux-image-2.6.31-15-generic" When I tried that, the output showed the package being removed, but nothing was removed from the grub menu. I tried running the kernel I supposedly removed, and it wouldn't start, which is promising, but how do I get it out of the grub menu? I've also tried using Synaptic, but that didn't work either.

Ubuntu Installation :: Redirecting Grub 2 (Bootloader) Menu Entries

Feb 23, 2011

I'm familiar with Ubuntu and the like, and have GRUB 2 installed as my boot-loader. I was wondering if there was any way to get one menu entry to be re-directed to another. Specifically, whenever I select my third menu entry, I want it to execute the code on menu entry 10. My reason for doing this would be that after customizing my GRUB 2 menu, I came into the problem of updated kernels. Basically I would like a single "Ubuntu, Latest Kernel" entry that always redirected to menuentry 10, where my latest "Ubuntu, linux 2.6.xx-x-generic" entry is. In order to temporarily solve my issue, I've set my "/etc/default/grub" file's "GRUB_DEFAULT" to "9", although I'd rather not do this.

Ubuntu :: Remove Unnecessary Lefthand Taskbar In Unity?

May 3, 2011

I have taken the largest chill pill I could find and have reinstalled nutty into a spare partition with a view to taking a more forgiving approach... i'll mostly stand by the rants for the time being... Has anyone found a simple (or complex for that matter - I just want it gone!) way to disable the randomly activated lefthand vertical taskbar in unity?It really is an unnecessary irritation when I can put my essential apps down the bottom where they belong with docky (thus reducing mouse mileage on my widescreen) and have everything else a WinKey+App away.Interesting that typing "Configuration" into the search box returns 0 results on a default natty install **** Additional ****Tweaking the Unity Plugin through Advanced Compiz Manager (and gconf-editor) leads me believe that I am after a "feature" that is not available:in gconf-editor:/apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/launcher_hide_modeis the key I would like to have an additional option of "Always" added the currently available options being "0 = Never, 1 = Autohide, 2 = Dodge Windows, 3 = Dodge Active Window"

Ubuntu :: Delete Unnecessary Nautilus Context Menu Items

Jul 17, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu for quite some time now and my context menu has become cluttered with a lot of applications that I don't use or menu items that I have never used - and most likely won't use.

So I want to remove them, or at least disable them.

So, after searching Google (irrelevant or old results) so then I tried Google with [URL] but nobody has had their problem solved.

Edit: I've looked through GConf-Editor, found nothing, and have looked through the directories .Cache/.Config/.Local/.Nautilus in my home diretory and nothing came up of relevance in the first three and the .Nautilus directory was empty.

Ubuntu :: Remove Grub 2 Menu Item?

Mar 2, 2010

I am dual booting Windows 7 sda1 and Ubuntu 9.10 on one hard drive. The second hard drive is data only. My grub menu shows at the end of the menu

Windows 7 sda1
Windows 7 sdb1

I think this is because I had a bad "A" drive that I just replaced and before that I did a lot of changing of the mbr and grub commands. So there must be something on the "B" or second drive that is causing this. Right now everything is fine with my computer and this is just house keeping. I would like to delete the "Windows 7 sdb1" menu Item if possible. Just to be clear, windows boots with the sda1 command (first menu Item), and the "windows 7 sdb1" does nothing at all.

Ubuntu :: Grub Boot Loader Menu - Remove Or Timeout?

Feb 28, 2011

I have been unable to locate an answer to the below.Just installed 10.10 server and noticed that during boot each time the Grub Menu pops up. I have to manually press a key on my keyboard each time to get through this menu. This is a big problem as this is going to be administered remotely. here is my /boot/grub/grub.cfg file

Code:
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
#
# It is automatically generated by grub-mkconfig using templates[code].......

Now, It seems to me that with the settings above that menu should time out after a few seconds but it is not. I must press enter each time.how I can get this damn thing to timeout after a few seconds?

OpenSUSE Install :: Grub Entry Modification - Cannot Remove From Menu List

Jun 20, 2010

I've recently installed suse x64 kde in dual boot mode with windows. I have 2 primary partitions with ntfs with 1 for windows7 boot and other for data/storage. There is no boot provision for data partition. SUSE install is on extended partition. I am unable to run fdisk -l and boot info script for some reason, kde is freaking me out (used to use gnome for last 4 years). The GRUB shows data as a boot and it added an entry in its menu. I will like to remove that entry from menu list.

Ubuntu :: Remove Entries From Xfrun4

May 26, 2011

In Xubuntu, the xfrun4 dialog (alt + F2) doesn't have auto-completion for every command, only for those commands successfully called at some previous point in time. My question is: where are these entries located, and how can I remove some of them?

I'm just curious because I'd like to keep my entries uncluttered. I was experimenting earlier to see whether xfrun4 would retain an invalid command, so I tried the inexistent (so I thought) command "terminal", but lo and behold, it opened a new tab in Firefox and brought me to www.terminal.com. Now I have the useless command "terminal" saved in xfrun4, and I'd like to get rid of it.

Fedora :: Why GRUB Does Not Display Menu Based On Grub.conf/menu.lst

Jul 28, 2009

I am testing my crash recovery strategy for my linux system and I am having trouble with GRUB. I am basically restoring my backup (i.e. tar) unto a different hard drive, but I am having problems getting the machine to boot without me having to type the GRUB commands at the GRUB prompt that is presented when the machine boots up off the new hard drive. I have tried to restore the MBR in two ways (the 2nd one is the one that gets me to the GRUB prompt):

1. Get the MBR off the original drive and write it unto the new drive (all via dd), but that did not work at all: the machine hangs right away during boot up. It seems to hang right at the point where the BIOS tries to read the MBR.

Code:

On original drive:

# dd if=/dev/sda of=mbr+part.bin bs=512 count=1

On new drive (new drive is now in place of original drive):

# dd if=mbr+part.bin of=/dev/sda bs=1 count=446 conv=notrunc

2. By using the FEDORA rescue CD, I installed grub unto the new hard drive as follows:

Code:

# chroot /mnt/sysimage
# grub-install --root-directory=/boot hd0

reboot and remove FEDORA CD Using the 2nd option above, I get the GRUB> prompt during bootup. I can then boot into the system by issuing the commands that are in the menu.lst file, followed by the "boot" command. However, I would like for those commands to happen automatically, just like in the original configuration. It seems to me that GRUB is actually finding all its stage files because I doubt the GRUB program (the one displaying the prompt) fits entirely in the 446 bytes it has on the MBR. So, it must be loading its stage 2 (and stage 1.5??) files from my /boot partition. However, if GRUB is loading its stage files off the boot partition, why does it not load/read the menu.lst/grub.conf contained in the boot partition also?

Code:

# ls -l /boot
total 22888
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1274567 2009-05-27 16:39 System.map-2.6.29.4-167.fc11.i686.PAE
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1274538 2009-06-16 22:27 System.map-2.6.29.5-191.fc11.i686.PAE

Ubuntu :: Remove Gconf-Editor Entries

Oct 16, 2010

I'm having trouble removing entries in gconf-editor (GUI).

I have searched everywhere: manpages, internets, forums, can't find anything related.

Here's the situation: I installed Avant Window Navigator and it naturally created entries in gconf-editor for interface, applets etc. The thing is that when I uninstalled it the entries are still there, and yes I have deleted the corresponding folders in home/.gconf/apps. Also did a search of my filesystem for awn, avant widow navigator, avant-window-navigator etc and nothing came up. Looked in /etc, nothing. Looked in /etc/gconf, also nothing.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Entries In Menu After Upgrade

Sep 19, 2010

I know someone posted a sim. query back in 2008, but I'm know getting the same issue in Lucid. I installed the latest updates last night and when I rebooted I found I had what looks like multiple copies of the same kernel entry in the Menu.lst. I've included my file for review. Sorting this out. Otherwise I reckon Lucid is rock solid. I do tend to leave a lot of default entries in commented out. Will this make my boot slower at all?
