UbuntuTweak 0.5.14 Released | What’s New

It is an application to config Ubuntu easier for everyone .It provides many useful desktop and system options that the default environment doesn’t provide .


What’s new  ??

This version improves the PPA purge feature . Let’s see what developer’s say about this improvement .

“Last day, I tried the GNOME 3 PPA with my Ubuntu 11.04, but it was not usable yet. So I used Ubuntu Tweak to purge the GNOME 3 PPA and downgrade the packages. But I found a bug in Ubuntu Tweak, it didn’t deal with the case which may cause the failure of downgrading packages.

So I improved the PPA purge, now it will show error and stop if packages can’t be downgrade. And you can follow the error message, then use “sudo apt-get remove pkg-name” to fix it, after this step,  PPA purge will be success.

With PPA purge, you can downgrade all GNOME 3 related packages with just select and click, everything will be done easily.

After restored the packages to the original natty packages, I also used the “Desktop Recovery” in Ubuntu Tweak to recover some settings of desktop application (E.G. GNOME Terminal, because upgrade to GNOME 3 will also update the settings).

So with Ubuntu Tweak, it’s painless to try the GNOME 3 PPA.

OK, here’s the improved PPA Purge, it will show more information, E.G. the current downloading package.”
