Ubuntu Tweak 0.6.1 released: Got support for 12.04!

Ubuntu Tweak 0.6.0, which released in the end of last year, has been downloaded for more than 100,000 times! I’m so happy to see the result. Thanks everyone for downloading and using Ubuntu Tweak!

And Ubuntu 12.04 is under heavily development, I’ve also see that many users have been upgraded. So here comes the Ubuntu Tweak 0.6.1, which supports Ubuntu 12.04 better.

Ubuntu Tweak 0.6.1 is a bug fixes release, and also introduced a few tweaks, here’s the release notes:

  • Add support for Ubuntu 12.04
  • Remove the background change in Login Settings, because the LightDM for 12.04 already support read user background setting
  • Add “Dash color” setting to Unity Settings
  • Add “Desktop Font” setting to Fonts Settings
  • Hide the Session Control for Lubuntu

Now let’s get started with some screenshots

  4. Thanks! Dude, is Tweak available in the Ubuntu PPAs like universe? It should if it’s not. MyUnity is available but is not as good as Tweak. This is an oportunity to get even more downloads.

  12. Excellent program. I have one problem, the log-in settings tweaks are greyed out – is this the program, or something at this end. I’m a Linux novice using Ubuntu 11.10 with Gnome desktop.

  13. Great program, but I’m missing some customization of the Nautilus, how to ‘open on terminal’, which was in version 0.5.14.

  14. I am seeing the testing team at 0.6.1 and I have 0.7.0 installed for testing. Is this from Ubuntu Tweak or did I get hacked somehow and install something I shouldn’t have? I’m a little worried as I have reported an issue with 0.7.0 and haven’t got any response, though that may because I am posting it in the wrong place! It is that everything works even the synch in source center, but when you try to refresh source center it seems to never complete!

  17. Can you blog how to install “Application/Source Center”? I really miss that feature and only found this reference googling — Separate “Application/Source Center” as a plug-in (Install from PPA, package name: ubuntu-tweak-community-plugins)

    I tried “sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak-community-plugins” and nothing was found.

  18. ubuntu tweak just broke my font rendering in gnome…
    after tweaking fonts settings and relogging everything was blurred…

    turns out the gconf setting: font_rendering->rgba=rgb had been removed…

  19. You’re doing a great job, Ubuntu Tweak is a very useful piece of software which I used a lot to customize my Ubuntu system. I’d like to point out one flaw that begun appearing after my transition to 12.04. In the Compiz settings under Tweaks, I’ve selected “Show Windows” at the “Workspace Edge Settings” on the bottom left corner. On Ubuntu 11.10 it would show all the open windows of every software in every windows lined up together. In 12.04 I can only view the open windows on the workspace I’m on instead of all of them. It was confusing at first and took me a bit of getting used to.
    It’s not a big of a deal, Ubuntu Tweak is still an excellent piece of software, but I would like to have all the open windows appearing when I use the Workspace Edge feature. If it’s possible that is.

    Best regards,

    • Before you get angry, maybe you should explain to the creator of Tweak just what the problems were that happened in a bit of detail, that way they might remedy it. I’m sure Tweak are just trying to help people have a more user friendly experience and don’t deserve abuse for their efforts.

  20. At last! A workable way to add the trash icon to the desktop!

    The question is, why isn’t this available as standard in Ubuntu Software Centre?!
