Ubuntu Tweak, one of the most popular Ubuntu configuration tools, now is officially discontinued!

Tualatrix Chou, the creator and maintainer, finally announced the discontinuation of Ubuntu Tweak in his Chinese blog a few days ago, though the last software update was more than one year ago.

The website Ubuntu-Teak.com has been redirected, and it will be shut off one year later, though it’s still getting 4000+ visits per day. Moreover, the Github and Launchpad page has been added a line said “This project is no long under maintenance”.

Ain't that always the way...something that more or less does exactly what you want it to with a minimum of fuss never stays around forever...this one came in very handy when I was getting started with Ubuntu :(

 

Oh well, need to learn more terminal stuff anyway


Whatever it was...I didn't do it!

Yeah but if you are brand new to linux the terminal is very intimidating

In any case there is some good news, unity tweak is still around plus the newer software center works way better at least when installing non local packages.

Plus who knows a fork will probably pop up too

Do most Linux distros have the Terminal?

 Yes.  In LInux, think of the terminal sort of like you would think of command prompt in Windows.  By running certain commands in terminal, you can turn things on or off, run updates, adjust settings or make programs open and run etc.  The key thing here is if you're not sure what a command does, don't run it.

 

Programs like Ubuntu Tweak and others just provide a point and click interface to make some of these changes.  The cool part is people come up with new ones on a regular basis. :thumbup2:

66Batmobile: Like Ubuntu Tweak, the Terminal sounds an excellent concept.

 

Is there a link to the range of Terminal commands including new ones as they're introduced?

 

MadmanRB: Are there big variations in how well the command line is implemented?

I think there's some confusion here.

"Terminal" and "command line" generally refer to the same thing.  If you are familiar with command prompt (CMD) in windows, that's what we're talking about.

 

When I said "people come up with new ones" I was referring to things like Ubuntu Tweak, Unity Tweak etc.  These programs provide easier access to some of the things you can do in terminal.

 

I hope I explained that ok :unsure:

66Batmobile and Madman RB: The command prompt/terminal is a useful concept in both Windows and Linux.

 

Ubuntu Tweak and Unity Tweak both sound invaluable programs to install to enable alternative methods of an additions to using the terminal. 

 

NickAu: Thanks for the links.
