The door to Ubuntu Tweak 0.6 is never closed, but there’re still a lot of bugs have to fixed. Here’s Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.13.
After the release of Natty, the desktop environment of Ubuntu has never been so complex before: Unity, GNOME classical, GNOME 3(Through PPA), LXDE, KDE…
Oh my god! So many desktop environments! How should I deal with that?
As you may know, Ubuntu Tweak is a desktop tool initially designed for GNOME, but some features (such as Source Center) also work under other desktop environments. I have to check the desktop environment, disable the features which can’t work under the target desktop, E.G. hide the GNOME Settings under KDE.
But It does not always work, and it takes me a lot of time to install another desktop environment, then test under it.
Now I realized if I continue to try to make Ubuntu Tweak compatible with other desktop environments, so the next major update will never come.
So I will try my best to make the next version of Ubuntu Tweak out, but somethings will be changed:
- Only for Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty)
- Only for Unity/GNOME
What does it mean?
First, it does not mean Ubuntu Tweak will not work under Debian, Mint or others. It may work, but not stable, or may cause other problems. And I will not support or response for that, just stop reporting bug(or feature request) for a while, until I have plan to support other distributions and desktop environments.
I hope you understand my decision, and sorry for users who use other desktop environments.
OK, now here’s Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.13 with some bugs fixed. If your desktop environment isn’t Unity, it won’t crash now. Also with many translation updates.

Here’s the deb package (and PPA is ready): ubuntu-tweak_0.5.13-1~natty1_all.deb
I’m going to speed up the development now!
