This is a bug fixed version of Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.x. I want to make the Ubuntu Tweak more stable so that I can start the development of Ubuntu Tweak 0.6.
The release notes of Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.10:
- Disable the broken sources and notify the user to make it easy to fix
- Add the Launcher Autohide setting to Compiz (Natty only)
- Fix bug: LP: #695294 No module named simplejson
- Fix bug: LP: #665841 ubuntu tweak crash in Login
What is “Disable the broken sources and notify the user to make it easy to fix”?
Recently I received a lot of bug reports caused by broken sources. It is often a misspelled PPA source.
I don’t know how does it happen, because I’ve never meet this problem. PPA sources are less important then the main sources.list, but it will make the package manager not work.
So, from this version, I add a sources validation feature for Ubuntu Tweak: Every time when you start Ubuntu Tweak, it will check the sources to make sure the package manager is working. If one of the sources is broken, Ubuntu Tweak will disable it, then notify the user with dialog, so user can edit the sources easily.
The dialog will be showed like this when Ubuntu Tweak starts.
In Source Editor, you can see the broken sources has been disabled. So your Ubuntu can still work like normal.
And in Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.10, I also add the option to make the Launcher hide automatically. It will give you a wider screen space.
Because Ubuntu 11.04 Natty is still under development, so the it might be changed in the future. Just for testing.
OK, that’s all. I hope this version will keep your system always work. And I will try to find out what causes the misspelled sources.
