Ubuntu Tweak 0.6 is close to releasing

Almost three months since the last post, how is it going with Ubuntu Tweak?

Yeah, just as the title said: Ubuntu Tweak 0.6 is close to releasing! And I have some other updates want to share with you.

Let’s get started!

First, here’s the major changes since the last post:

  • Only support Ubuntu 11.10 and later (and of course: Linux Mint 12)
  • Support three major desktop environments: Unity, Unity-2D, GNOME Shell
  • More tweaks have been added, E.G. Unity Settings
  • Solve some critical bugs of the Janitor and improve the usability

And here’s one screenshot of Unity Settings

Here’s another news I need to announce:

Ubuntu Tweak source code has moved to Launchpad/Bzr

As you may know, I used to manage the source code of Ubuntu Tweak by Git, but it is not so friendly for the Ubuntu Community. Because the prefer tool to manage source code is Bzr.

So I finally decided to move to Launchpad/Bzr, now I’m getting used to play with Bzr, it is also very cool. The most important thing is that the members from Ubuntu Community can easily join the development of Ubuntu Tweak.

The code is located here: https://code.launchpad.net/ubuntu-tweak

If you want to play with the code of Ubuntu Tweak, just do “bzr branch lp:ubuntu-tweak”

There are still many things to do for the final release, such as: translate, bugs fix and other improvement.

Please help to test the latest Ubuntu Tweak and report any problem you find.

You can get the latest testing version from the Testing PPA: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-tweak-testing/+archive/ppa

Let’s make it happen!

  8. Man, thanks for maintaining Ubuntu Tweak, I’ve been waiting for the new version since 11.10 came out! Your app is the swiss army knife of tweak tools – it does it all, and damn am I happy it’s back. One of the most important apps available for Ubuntu. Keep up the great work!

  9. What happened to the section for browsing and adding new package sources? I see a source editor, but no longer a section for managing new repositories.

  16. I have two systems with Ubuntu_Tweak on them, both Ubuntu 11.10 classic with Gnome panel installed. One is a Toshiba NB505-N508BL netbook the other an old Shuttle Xpc FB-71 With 2.8Ghz P4HT and AGP , the older one runs 32bit version of Ubuntu and the Netbook the 64Bit version, The 32bit Shutttle runs the older version of Ubuntu-Tweak just fine, but the .6 version just blinks the loading screen for a second then quits, no process showing in System Monitor! The newer netbook with 64bit system, runs both the new and old version of Ubuntu-Tweak just fine no problems with it! I posted the results of running ubuntu-tweak -d in a terminal on the 32 bit system on the Facebook page. Would love to get it running on the shuttle as that is my main machine, the netbook is for trips!

  17. In the last 0.6.x release, I oculd no more find ppa-purge functionnality, it is planned to add it again to the final version? Thanks. LGDN.

  19. Latest update broke Ubuntu-Tweak in a strange way! Synaptic and Software center insist it is installed, but the icon was missing from the system tools menu, I ran ubuntu-tweak -d in terminal and got one really long file, too long for facebook, then did further digging and I can run it from the terminal with ubuntu-tweak, I added it manually to the system tolls menu with the command ubunu-tweak and it runs like a champ! Here is the results of ubuntu-tweak -d

  20. The 20111222 update did the trick! Icon back in the System Tools menu and everything work! Reason I know is the one I put there read Ubuntu-Tweak, instead of Ubuntu Tweak, so after the update I had two and knew which one to delete! Really fast work for being 15 time zones apart!
