Ubuntu Tweak Gets Full Ubuntu 12.10 Support With Version 0.8.2

ubuntu tweak
Ubuntu Tweak, a popular tweak tool, was updated yesterday to version 0.8.2, which brings full support for Ubuntu 12.10, so the features that weren’t working in the previous version, like changing the window titlebar theme, broken quicklist editor or the option to change the window button order, should all work now.
Besides getting the already existing features to work with Ubuntu 12.10, the latest Ubuntu tweak also adds support for some new features in the latest Ubuntu, like an option to turn off the Web Apps integration.

The new version brings an improved Apps section as well, in which a green icon is displayed for installed applications, a feature which many of you have requested back when the “Apps” feature was introduced.
And finally, Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.2 comes with a feature that was released by mistake in 0.8.1 (without it being 100% ready): Love Wallpaper HD, located under Tweaks > Desktop, which allows you to get beautiful, fresh wallpapers with a double click.

If you want to save the wallpaper downloaded through Ubuntu Tweak, you’ll find it ~/.config/ubuntu-tweak/lovewallpaper.jpg (this file gets overwritten each time you set a new wallpaper through this Ubuntu Tweak option).

Install Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.2

Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04 and 11.10 users can install the latest Ubuntu Tweak by using its official PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

Ubuntu Tweak debs can also be downloaded via Launchpad.

I had a lengthy Facebook discussion with some of my friends from physics regarding this. The conclusion was that this comic assumes that there are absolute spatial coordinates which are sun-centric. However, in reality, the (more or less) inertial frame of the Earth is no less absolute than the sun-centric system, so there is no reason to assume that you wouldn’t reappear in the frame you left (i.e. the Earth’s), rather than moving to a new one (which is the sun-centric frame).

Basically, the comic assumes absolute space, which is incorrect according to Galilean relativity and Einstein’s relativity. Boom.

Elegance Colors, a chameleonic, highly customizable GNOME Shell theme, has been updated today, the new version bringing an option to export a customized theme for later use.
The latest Elegance Colors 0.3 works with GNOME Shell 3.6 and the best thing about it is that the theme changes its colors according to the current GTK theme, wallpaper or an user-defined color. The theme also comes with a configuration tool which can be used to customize it: use light or dak menus, change the panel or menu opacity, font size and other options.

Here are a few examples of customizations supported by Elegance Colors:
