Ubuntu Tweak 0.3.2 released!

It’s over a month since the last release. This month I did few with Ubuntu Tweak, but still have some updates. So the Ubuntu Tweak 0.3.2 comes.

Bug fixed and new tweak items added. Hope you’ll like it.


Follows the main ChangLog:

  • Fixed the bug that can’t show a warning message while running under other desktop environment(only can run under GNOME).
  • When launch Ubuntu Tweak, it will show a splash screen. Because Ubuntu Tweak become bigger and bigger, the launch speed is slow, so show a splash screen is a proper way while waiting.
  • Added the options to install Compiz and Nautilus Extensions. You can through the interface to easily install some useful package.
  • History settings: To protect your privacy, you may want to disable Recently Used. Now Ubuntu Tweak can disable it.

Some screenshots below:

If you disable the System-wide ‘Recently Used’ list, all the applications’ history will gone, and the ‘Recently Documents’ list is unavailable too.

Deb package for all:


OK, let’s me know your feelings. And the next version won’t take a long time.

  7. Hi, thanks for this great release!

    But I have a question: What does “system-wide “Recently used”” mean? Does it mean that every user of my system can see what applications / documents were recently opened by me?

  9. Hi Lee,

    thanks for your answer. I think that’s not a great feature of Ubuntu – but the opportunity to deactivate it with Ubuntu Tweak is great ;-)


  10. Bug again with “Show desktop icon” on version 0.3.2.When I untick this box,and then retick it,no desktop icon appear!I must unistall 0.3.2 and reinstall 0.3.1.Problem solved!

  11. Doesn’t work for me. I get the following error when run from a terminal.

    charles@MSI-K8N-NEO4-PLAT-SLI:~$ ubuntu-tweak
    /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/apt/__init__.py:18: FutureWarning: apt API not stable yet
    warnings.warn(“apt API not stable yet”, FutureWarning)

    Failed to open file ‘/usr/share/pixmaps/splash/ubuntu-splash.png': No such file or directory

  12. I recently installed ubuntu together with its codecs(debs) and it works fine. My main problem with it is that it plays videos slowly and informs me that my system is too slow .i.e. 800MHz. But since i have also installed windows on the same system and it works fine! What could be the problem? Is it the drivers,codecs, or what could be the the problem?
    I recently started to work with linux(ubuntu) and could really use all the help I could get! You can just post a comment with some links to some real helpful stuff(PDFs,debs,etc) in my blog or email them to me if you wouldn’t mind!
    Thanks in advance!
