Ubuntu Tweak 0.7.1 released

Half an month ago, I released Ubuntu Tweak 0.7.0, it has been downloaded for more than 60,000 times.

Thanks for the people who like it, spread it and  report problems for it. Now, a new bug-fixed version is coming. It is Ubuntu Tweak 0.7.1, and of course, with some new features.

Ubuntu Tweak 0.7.1 fixed 11 bugs, they are:

  • LP: #982632 Window module fails to load on Xubuntu, Lubuntu
  • LP: #988564 ubuntu-tweak 0.7.0 (oneiric/unity-2d) crashes in Unity settings
  • LP: #990270 Ubuntu Tweak crash after install in Ubuntu 12.04 system76 laptop
  • LP: #992581 nautilus script-worker fails on 12.04
  • LP: #995748 Natural Scrolling takes no effect in some places
  • LP: #987573 Old kernel janitor in infinite loop
  • LP: #988554 ubuntu tweak login settings crashes
  • LP: #988659 If gedit is not installed, Ubuntu Tweak will crash
  • LP: #993334 Update Dialog API in Source Center
  • LP: #994980 The search icon is missing in Ubuntu 12.04 default theme
  • LP: #995135 Quicklists editor crashed when no desktop file

And four little features:

The first feature is for Unity 2D desktop, The “Compositing Manager” makes your Unity 2D desktop with some desktop effects like drop-down shadow, window preview in Alt+Tab switcher. I think every Unity 2D users will like this feature.

And you can use “Number of workspaces” to add or reduce the number of workspaces, if you don’t like the default number: 4.

Overlay scrollbars can save your desktop space, but if you prefer the traditional scrollbar, you can also disable the overlay scrollbars in Ubuntu Tweak easily.

The QuickLists helps you edit your Launcher items easily, in this version, QuickLists Editor adds the support for “locale”, if your locale isn’t English, you will get the locale name of actions. E.G. The Chinese version of QuickLists Editor.

The last little feature is the “Show Desktop” icon in Launcher (Unity Desktop only). This is an alternative way to access your desktop, set it to “On” if you want it back.

And there is also update for the translations. If your language is still incomplete, you can help the translation here.

OK, that’s all, I hope you like this more stable version of Ubuntu Tweak!

  3. Natural-scrolling still doesn’t seem to work in Nautilus or Audacious, I’ve tried every combination of rebooting and turning NS off and on since the update :(

    But thanks for the work and the update – it’s still a really useful program!

  7. It seems that Tweaks > Workspace doesnt work without having ubuntu tweak running in background.

    Would in be possible to either fix this or let the window minimize to the topbar?

  8. Thanks for your great work!

    For Unity 3D, is there a way to reduce the size of icons on the launcher to less than 32, say 24?

  9. instalé Ubuntu-Tweak en mi equipo y tengo la desagradable experiencia que despues de haber completado el proceso de limpieza al parecer perdí el icono de apagar el equipo, ¿Me pueden ayudar a encontrarlo? gracias

  10. Hi there, thank you for coding and sharing such a good app.
    Unfortunately, I seem to be having a problem with it.
    I can’t seem to change Login Screen background. I’m able to set it to the picture that I like but reach to the login screen, I only see that picture for 1 second before it changes to the desktop wallpaper.
    Could you please help me out here?
    Thank you.

  11. I have ubuntu 64 bit 12.04 and Ubuntu Tweak 0.7.1 for ubuntu 12.04. There is some problem with my version because the options to customize the unity are not all available to me. I can’t create the the desktop icon which was the only reason I installed the Ubuntu Tweak 0.7.1.

  12. Hi, I have installed 0.7.1 in 12.04 in order to tweak the Nautilus settings and add the Open Folder with root privileges option when right clicking on a folder. But unfortunately I cannot see this setting! How can I achieve this? I have seen a video of this on youtube done with an older version. Thanks, Adri

  13. Thanks for a great product. …

    Suggestion: Could you consider also supporting MATE in addition to Ubiquity?

    Some of us ‘ol folk’ don’t change that easily.

    To me Ubiquity looks like it would be better suited to a tablet environment, and Mate is better suited to a desktop. So supporting both would be a great service to the community.

  14. I used to use Ubuntu Tweak all the time on Mint 10 (based on Ubuntu 10.10). I recently installed Mint 13 (based on Ubuntu 12.04). After using it a while, I ran Ubuntu Tweak. After figuring out where everything was in the new UI (which is rather nice), I ran the Janitor section to clean things up a bit. I ran into a problem, though. Now Cinnamon doesn’t run. First thing after using the Janitor and rebooting, Cinnamon complained about a missing libGL.so.1. I reinstalled my graphics drivers and that seems to have fixed that (not sure why Ubuntu Tweak removed it). Tried running Cinnamon again, and got a massively long list of Javascript errors, and it still refused to run.

    Is there any way to see what exactly was removed or changed by Ubuntu Tweak (like a history option or log), or to have Ubuntu Tweak undo what it did? I can’t get Cinnamon running now at all, no matter what I try, and I don’t want to have to reinstall Mint again. Any ideas?

  16. + 1 for the request to allow reducing the Unity Launcher icons to less than 32 (say 24, 20, 16..!). Currently even at 32×32, they are excessively large & limit the amount able to be displayed on the launcher..
