Ubuntu Tweak, an application designed to configure Ubuntu more easily, providing a lot of useful desktop and system options that the default desktop environment doesn't offer, is now at version 0.8.7.
The developer of Ubuntu Tweak is powering on with the software and keeps adding new features, and this latest version is not a letdown. Unfortunately, the updates for this great application only seem to show up every six months, after a new Ubuntu version is released.
According to the changelog, support has been added for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and this means that users can tweak some very specific settings. Also, it’s now possible to enable the “Recursive Search” option, it’s now possible to enable the “click to minimize app” feature, the nautilus scripts support for Ubuntu 13.10 and later has been fixed, a few missing fonts for the desktop icons, window, and file manager have been added, and more.
As usual, you can find the latest version in the PPA, which is easily installable. Open a terminal and enter the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak
