Why Every Ubuntu User Must Install Ubuntu Tweak

Filed under
Ubuntu

It is a well known fact that a majority of Ubuntu users come from the Microsoft Windows environment. These users are accustomed to the ease of click and get things done. There are many utilities available for Windows user to tweaks the system settings, of course you can't touch the base system and tweak it to improve performance. Most Windows users are aware of these utilities. What about Ubuntu?

Yes, we know since we have access to the source code we can improve it as much as we want, something you can't do on Windows machines. But how user friendly are these utilities? Is there anything that offers not only use of ease but also much more control than Windows machine? Yes, there is something called Ubuntu Tweaks which is an excellent and indispensable tool.

systemd and DebConf16

  • systemd backport of v230 available for Debian/jessie
    At DebConf 16 I was working on a systemd backport for Debian/jessie. Results are officially available via the Debian archive now. In Debian jessie we have systemd v215 (which originally dates back to 2014-07-03 upstream-wise, plus changes + fixes from pkg-systemd folks of course). Now via Debian backports you have the option to update systemd to a very recent version: v230. If you have jessie-backports enabled it’s just an `apt install systemd -t jessie-backports` away. For the upstream changes between v215 and v230 see upstream’s NEWS file for list of changes. (Actually the systemd backport is available since 2016-07-19 for amd64, arm64 + armhf, though for mips, mipsel, powerpc, ppc64el + s390x we had to fight against GCC ICEs when compiling on/for Debian/jessie and for i386 architecture the systemd test-suite identified broken O_TMPFILE permission handling.)
  • DebConf16 low resolution videos
    If you go to the Debian video archive, you will notice the appearance of an "lq" directory in the debconf16 subdirectory of the archive. This directory contains low-resolution re-encodings of the same videos that are available in the toplevel.
