Hello, I'm having some diffulty finding the answer to this question because all the keywords seem to be extremely common. If anyone knows of another similar thread please feel free to point me in that direction.

What I'd like to know is how to add a GitHub overlay? The overlay I'd like to add can be found here:
--> https://github.com/ssmike/overlay
Additionally, I'm trying to add this one because I cannot find any other overlays, official and non-official, that also have an .ebuild of Grub-Customizer:
--> https://github.com/ssmike/overlay/tree/master/app-admin/grub-customizer

When I attempted to add it to my computer I'm shown this error message:
Code:
$ sudo layman -a ssmike
 * Exception: Overlay "ssmike" does not exist.


I suppose there could be an overall problem with that github repo. I would also be happy if anyone also happens to know how I could install this GUI Grub configuration tool as well.

Thanks a lot!

For adding custum repo with layman see here.
In your repo is missing file repositories.xml, you can or adding it directly in github or in /etc/layman/overlays/ (see link above)

Or try directly with
/etc/portage/repos.conf/foobar:
[mike-overlay]
location = /usr/local/overlay/ssmike
sync-type = git
sync-uri = https://github.com/ssmike/overlay
auto-sync = yes

Then, emaint sync -r mike-overlay
