I've upgraded from Grub Legacy to Grub2 and now I'm trying to install a Grub config tool but with no success!
Grub Customizer isn't in Synaptic and attempting to download via Terminal gives this error - $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer

Now - I'm running Mint 13 KDE, which can be a bit quirky to say the least
and KDE has it's own tool - kcm-grub2. For the life of me I can't get this installed! It's not in Synaptic and Terminal returns this - $ sudo apt-get install kcm-grub2

E: Unable to locate package kcm-grub2
Have I missed something?
It's not critical - I'm just learning about the system but I'd like to tidy up the grub menu and add a few colours etc............ all part of the process?
