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.

Microsoft financia la LinuxCon Europe con 18.000 dólares

Guake


Guake es un terminal desplegable para Gnome. Al igual que otros terminales similares, se le llama con sólo pulsar una tecla (F12) y se oculta con la misma tecla (F12). Su diseño fue inspirado en los videojuegos de ordenador como Quake que tenía una consola que se deslizaba hacia abajo desde la parte superior de la pantalla cuando se pulsaba una tecla, y deslizaba hacia arriba cuando se pulsaba esa misma tecla de nuevo.

Guake sigue la misma línea de Yakuake y Tilda, pero es un intento de fusionar lo mejor de ellos en una sola aplicación basada en GTK. Guake se ha escrito desde cero.

Personalmente, no conocía ésta herramienta que junto con Geany, mi editor de textos y mi IDE preferido, hacen una mezcla perfecta.

New Release: Elegance Colors – Chameleonic GNOME Shell theme


elegance colors gnome shell
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:

Xenix, la distribución UNIX de Microsoft


Hubo un tiempo en que Apple, la empresa con mayor capitalización bursátil de la historia, estuvo al borde de la bancarrota; un tiempo en que Nintendo, el estandarte de los videojuegos para todos los públicos, se dedicaba al negocio de los hoteles del amor; y hubo un tiempo en que Microsoft, el que muchos usuarios de Linux ven como el enemigo a batir, distribuía la versión de UNIX más popular del mercado.

GPaste GNOME Shell Clipboard Manager Available For Ubuntu 12.10 (GNOME Shell 3.6)


Por: Andrew

gpaste
GPaste, a native GNOME Shell clipboard manager, is now available for Ubuntu 12.10 / GNOME Shell 3.6 through the WebUpd8 GNOME 3 PPA.
GPaste features uris support (remembers copied files, not just text), a command line tool, option to backup / restore clipboard history, image support and other useful options.

Install GPaste in Ubuntu 12.10

To install GPaste in Ubuntu 12.10 (with GNOME Shell 3.6), use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions-gpaste

Once installed, enable the extension using GNOME Tweak Tool.

Note: there’s a memory leak when enabling the image support (it occurs when taking a screenshot for instance). For this reason, I’ve disabled it by default in GPaste package available in our PPA but you can enable it from the GPaste settings if you want to use it anyway.
Unfortunately, the latest GPaste 2.9 doesn’t compile successfully for Ubuntu 12.04, that’s why the latest version is only available for Ubuntu 12.10.
