I love this BURG theme. Do you mind if I use this in my Linux distro that I'm making? I would love to have it as the default theme. It's perfect! :)

LuxieBlack  nice theme...any chances to make one for grub-customizer...?
is there a ubuntu icon available for this theme?

yes there's a lot of them included, ubuntu, debian, etc. 
How to add Shutdown:

sudo vim /etc/burg.d/40_custom

(You don't have to use vim, just any text editor)
Add the following lines to the end of the file

menuentry 'Shutdown' --class shutdown {

(Save and exit text editor)

sudo update-burg

For those wondering how to add recovery, it's a bit more complicated.  Personally, I didn't mind, so I didn't look completely into the code, but this is the gist:

Look in /etc/grub.d/10_linux for something along the lines of if ($RECOVERY) and change the class of that entry to recovery (--class recovery).

sudo update-burg

For the person looking for Windows recovery, just duplicate your entry for Windows and change the boot partition for that entry to the first partition of that disk (where the Windows recovery partition resides).
Can you help me with recovery button on eOS Freya? I don't part that you say about :(
Hey GodTamit! Thanks for the tips. I have a problem whit the recovery being shown. I looked in /etc/grub.d/10_linux and this is the line with ${RECOVERY}:

if ${recovery} ; then
   title="$(gettext_quoted "%s, with Linux %s (%s)")"
   printf "menuentry '${title}' ${CLASS} {\n" "${os}" "${version}" "$(gettext "${GRUB_RECOVERY_TITLE}")"
   title="$(gettext_quoted "%s, with Linux %s")"
   printf "menuentry '${title}' ${CLASS} {\n" "${os}" "${version}"
you can give me steps to add recovery and shutdown as separate entries in grub/burg?

And how you hidden recovery mode of windows? :D
Hi, thank's for do this, i'm salvadoran and i've install it on my new eOS, but when i initialize the computer appears 2 icons for eOS and for Windwos, can i do modifications to this and obtain the interface you have in the image you show? get the shutdwon botton, restar and one icon for every operating system? how can i do this? i work in linux but i'm not a pro. Thank's again.

How *does* one go about adding recovery and shutdown as separate entries in grub/burg? For me recovery modes are folded into (if that's the correct turn of phrase) Ubuntu/Elementary's standard boot mode, and shutdown is nowhere to be seen.

Great burg theme by the way! Fit perfectly with the elementary design ethos IMHO. I do wish/hope GRUB2 starts to port BURG theme functionality (i.e. icon only menus, horizontal menus, etc) into GRUB2 proper. It seems wasteful to have a one-man fork, not to mention potentially unsustainable (for BURG) in the long term.

I thought is a good idea XD
The shutdown is added manually, will appear by default in the update of the theme, in a few days.

Yeah everyone loves burg, but there isn't any distro using it :(

I'm curious if this is a theme bug or BURG's bug:

Let's say that I have two Linux systems installed, like Ubuntu and eOS Luna. Icons would be from left to right: Ubuntu logo, elementary logo, recovery logo, another recovery logo, shutdown. Am I right? This way IDK which recovery is which.

Proposed solutions:

1. Make submenus for every main entry. (This would mean from left to right: Ubuntu, elementary, Shutdown. For booting elementary into recovery mode or using previous kernel you would open submenu of eOS. Eg. by pressing down arrow or 'm' key...)

2. Make one big 'Advanced' entry for stuff like recovery, booting previous kernels, etc. (This would mean from left to right: Ubuntu, elementary, Advanced, Shutdown.)

Icons would be Ubuntu, Ubuntu (recovery), eOS, eOS (recovery). [for the recovery icon the '--class recovery' must be at first in the recovery menuentry instead of ubuntu and elementary]
1. Is already a feature for grouping entries: [link]
2. I prefer this but I think is not possible.

PD: for the shutdown entry you must edit burg.cfg and add:
menuentry "Shutdown" --class shutdown {
