I've been meaning to do this, and I guess now is as good a time as any. I figure w/ the newest version of Ubuntu coming out in a few days, there's gonna be some new users or some users who aren't very experienced in how the whole system works. I thought I'd take a few days to look at Ubuntu-Tweak.. It's been around a while, I've just never messed with it... I guess I had visions of the various "tweak" programs available for Windoze. First, the program makes some things very easy to do, that may not be quite so obvious to some. "For Me" I found most of it fairly irrelevant. Editing your source list, adding a ton of different PPA repositories(which may or may not be stable, and thankfully, it warns you of that), various Gnome and Desktop settings, adding/removing programs that start on startup and also installing a ton of software if you're scared of Synaptic. Again, none of this is difficult w/ Ubuntu, just sometimes it's not very obvious. For those of you familiar w/ the "Ubuntu Software Center".. to me, Ubuntu Tweak could be compared to an advanced version of that, as it goes beyond just installing software, but has a very similar interface. It's easy to install, just download the .deb file, and double click it, then select install package. After its done installing, it will be in Application/System Tools... The file name says its for Ubuntu Karmic, but according to the ubuntu tweak blog, version 0.5.3, is compatible w/ Ubuntu 10.04, and thus far, I've had no problems with it... http://ubuntu-tweak.com/ IGF Wanna kill these ads?
