Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.4 released

As you may know, Ubuntu 13.04 is officially release just now! At the same time, Ubuntu Tweak got an update too. This time, it’s Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.4!

Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.4 is still a maintenance version, the support for Ubuntu 13.04, and fixed some critical bugs. Like this one:

You may encountered unexpected issues while installing apps through Ubuntu Tweak: download fails, network is down, then Ubuntu Tweak will popup an error dialog to tell the truth. In the old versions, Ubuntu Tweak will hang after you click the “Close” button, and you have to force close it and launch again. In 0.8.4, this bug is finally fixed! Now enjoy with installing third party apps without any pain :Dubuntu-tweak-084-1

And the following bugs have been fixed too:

  • Ubuntu 13.04 should upgrade the path of scripts (LP: #1155854)
  • creating of a hard link to a directory crashes UT (LP: #1092086)
  • Janitor only shows “System” (LP: #1101264)
  • Window button tweak error in 13.04 (LP: #1114576)
  • Ubuntu Tweak crashes on updating software list (LP: #1081235)


As usual, you can update to Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.4 from the Stable PPA, or just download this deb package and install it.

  6. Hey Tualatrix! Thanks for maintaining this great software. Unfortunately, it crashes immediately when loading for several people, me included. Check out the comments on webupd8’s announcement:


    I’m not sure I know where to file this bug. Can you point me to your bug tracker? Would you like any additional information? I’m trying on GNOME Ubuntu 13.04, with GNOME Shell 3.8.

  9. For me not work two scripts
    – Browse as root
    – Open with your favourite text editor (as root)
    Constant shows that the password is incorrect.

    • I finde the problem – “Run gksu-properties and make sure that the Authentication mode is set to sudo”.
      Ubuntu Tweak is a nice program.

  11. Hi,

    i just installed Ubuntu Tweaks via ppa.
    When I try to start it i get:
    (ubuntu-tweak:4110): Gtk-ERROR **: GtkBox child GtkTreeView minimum width: -1 < 0 for height 356

    What can I do?

  12. @Albert : if you read previous posts, you would have seen that it’s a bug with gtk 3.8…
    it’s because the api changed, so have to wait for a new version to be compatible with new gtk frontend apis
