Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.2: Quantal Ready!

First I would like to thank you all for the support of Ubuntu Tweak, I received many donations for the past week. All of the donation are listed here: http://ubuntu-tweak.com/donations/ (Not completed yet).

And today I’m very pleased to announce that Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.2 is released. The goal of this version is support for Ubuntu 12.10 and improving the Apps.

Let’s get started from the release notes:

Overview of Changes

  • Show apps installation status
  • No more Desktop Recovery and Shortcut for 12.10
  • Add option to turn off Unity Web Apps
  • Remove “show User indicator” option for 12.10
  • Love Wallpaper HD is ready

Bugs fixed

  • Quicklists load failed in 12.04 (LP: #1073004)
  • Window control button position not working for Ubuntu 12.10 (LP: #1061218)
  • Window titlebar font setting is not working under 12.10 (LP: #1069669)
  • Window theme setting is not working under 12.10 (LP: #1069670)
  • Error in Translations it.po (LP: #1069028)

The back of tweaks

First of all, Ubuntu Tweak is Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal ready from 0.8.2, this means you can tweak the window control button position, window theme and other settings like in Ubuntu 12.04. So enjoy tweaking again!

In this version, I also removed some features that don’t work since Ubuntu 12.10, like Desktop Recovery (because it only works with Gconf) and Shortcuts. You can still set arbitrary commands with shortcuts through CCSM.

Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.2 also provided some Ubuntu 12.10 specific tweaks, like “Web Apps Integration”. If you don’t need the Web Apps feature in Ubuntu 12.10, you can turn it off easily.

Apps with installation status

In Apps, now you will see a green icon that indicate if an app is installed. And as you can see, some latest apps for Ubuntu have been added, like Polly, Stormcloud.

You will always get the latest and coolest apps from Apps in Ubuntu Tweak, currently I will make approval for these apps .

Find the wallpaper you love in Love Wallpaper HD

The “Love Wallpaper HD” is officially introduced, you can browser the random wallpapers that fit your screen size in it. By clicking “I’m Feeling Lucky” you can always get new pictures, by double-clicking the picture, Ubuntu Tweak will download and set the wallpaper for you automatically.

The picture will be saved at ~/.config/ubuntu-tweak/lovewallpaper.jpg, if you like it, you can move it out.

Notes: this is a service that located in China, so you may encounter the network access issue. Currently there’s no way to solve it, I will keep an update if the service provider has some news.

 Download and Install

Here’s deb link (PPA is ready).

  5. Hello! Sorry for my English, I’m from Russia.
    You have not considered this possibility, as the addition of tweaks: preload, vm.svappiness and so on? It would be great to have the opportunity in your application.

    • EDIT:
      Apparently my version of Linux Mint (Ubuntu 11.10), does not support the latest version of Ubuntu Tweak, so I’m staying in 0.7.3 version at least until you solve compatibility issues.
      Thanks :)

  28. Dear Shannon,Thanks for sharing such a great blog! You diefnitely deserve being listed in 101 Women Bloggers to Watch for Fall 2008!Appreciate your shout out too!Have a Spa’ntaneous Day!Heidi Richards Mooney, PublisherWE Magazine for Women

  29. Hi Bernard,I’m glad to hear the tutorial was heuplfl for you. However, I’m a little worried about the privacy issues regarding trackback and pingback though.Why? Trackbacks and pingbacks don’t send personally identifiably information unless you put it in your post.When I made the reference to sending a pingback/trackback to the same blog, it was mainly for WordPress 1.5 users and below. In the earlier versions of WordPress, it allowed both links to slip through, however, the newer versions of WordPress 1.5.0.x and up will take the pingback in favor of the trackback (only publishing a single link).If the blog you’re linking to isn’t WordPress, it’s relatively safe to assume you need to trackback and don’t need to worry about pingbacks at all.So, am I correct to say that a blog owner should turn off either Pingback or Trackback in the WordPress->Options->Discussion? to avoid having two linkback?No, because there is no way to disable either or. You either have trackbacks and pingbacks enabled or you don’t.If you’re running the latest version of WordPress, you needn’t worry about the two-link problem.I just want to know whether you enabled both pingback and trackback on your site Trackbacks/pingbacks are enabled on this post, however, they are enabled on a post by post basis on the site itself.p.s. is there a RSS comment feed that I can add?The beauty of WordPress (when pretty permalinks are enabled) is that you can slap /feed/ to just about any URL to create an RSS feed. Hope I’ve answered your questions, if you have any others, don’t hesitate to ask. ~ Teli

  30. Hi Grubgirl,To answer Site A wants to reernfece Grubgirl’s post B, and so Site A gets the Permalink URI from post B, and puts it in Site A’s “trackback to this URI” field in its Comments form.Not quite. Site A (if it’s not a WP blog or does not have pinging enabled), would need to take Site B’s trackback URI and place that in their blogging application’s trackback field.Grubgirl’s post B wants to reernfece Site A’s post A, then Grubgirl goes to post A, gets Site A’s Trackback URI, adds it to Post B’s Advanced section of its Edit mode.If Site A isn’t a WP blog and doesn’t support auto ping, then yes, you’d get Site A’s trackback URI and place it in the Send trackbacks to:’ field of your WordPress blog.Whether or not you’ll see comments , trackback URI , permalinks , etc will depend on the theme’s creator and the settings of your blog.For instance, if trackbacks aren’t enabled on an entry to this blog, the trackback URI is not displayed, same with comments the comment form isn’t displayed.I hope I was able to make it a little more clear for you and if you’d like to know anything else, please be sure to let me know. ~ Teli
