Ubuntu Tweak 0.6 Is Close to Release

Tualatrix has just announced on the Ubuntu Tweak Blog that Ubuntu Tweak 0.6 is close to being released. It is now available for Oneiric by opening the terminal or typing Alt + F2, and typing:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-tweak-testing/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

(I am still using the version for Oneiric, although I upgraded to Precise Pangolin yesterday.)

The major changes to Ubuntu Tweak include:

Support for three major desktop environments: Unity, Unity-2D, GNOME Shell.

More tweaks have been added – for instance, Unity Settings.

The usability of the Janitor has been improved.

Here is a shot of Unity Settings:

Please note: if you use the Unity launcher at the bottom as discussed by Web Upd8, there is a critical bug. When running Ubuntu Tweak 0.6, then going to Tweaks > Unity Settings, Unity crashes. The Unity Bottom Launcher must be removed before testing of Ubuntu Tweak 0.6.

    Bummer, I have my panel at the bottom so I guess that I’ll have to wait. I like the Unity panel on the bottom much better than on the side.

    Sorry about that. I’m glad I read the warnings. Putting the panel at the bottom makes a good bit of sense.
