Barneedhar: Unity-tweak-tool: For the power user in you!

Published Jan 10 2013 via RSS

After almost two months of intense development, we people at Freyja Development team are in a position to release unity-tweak-tool for wider consumption.

The two months of developing unity-tweak-tool had its fair share of fun and frolic. Unity-tweak-tool was born as Mechanig but was renamed twice to this very name. Reasons for the renaming varies from being too witty for the users to naming issues with the Unity developers.

As if naming wasn’t the only issue, I had goofed up the apport hook and pointed the hook to Novacut project instead. I realized I didn’t carefully vet the single line of code that I copied from Jason DeRose’s blog post regarding using Apport in daily PPA. Jason identified the faux pas and fortunately, we managed to fix the issue within a day. It made me realize the necessity of carefully reviewing any piece of code that we write from this rather embarrassing mistake. ;-)

I would like to use this moment to thank my fellow team members at Freyja Development team namely Phani Mahesh, Amith kk, Georgi Karavasilev, Sam Tran, Sam Hewitt and Ángel Araya for their continued efforts on unity-tweak-tool.

Also to be thanked are Jason Gerard DeRose, the talented developer behind the wonderful Novacut project, who helped us immensely by setting up the packaging for unity-tweak-tool, David Planella, whose input on Gtk and Glade were of great help when the project was still in infant stage as well as Benjamin Kerensa for interviewing the entire Freyja development team for OMG!Ubuntu!

There has already been 519 downloads on quantal and 46 downloads on raring from the daily PPA and that makes us quite excited. If you are equally excited, you can try and test the package from our daily PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:freyja-dev/unity-tweak-tool-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool

Alternatively, if you are interested in reviewing the code or contributing to the project, you can obtain the code from GitHub.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
