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.

GNOME Shell: How To Enable Notifications In The Lock Screen


gnome shell lock screen notifications
GNOME Shell 3.6 got a neat feature which allows notifications to be displayed in the lock screen.

In Ubuntu 12.10 (either if you’ve installed GNOME Shell manually or using Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10), the lock screen notifications are turned off by default and since Ubuntu uses System Settings 3.4 instead of 3.6, the option to turn it on is missing. So here’s a quick tip on how to enable it. Open a terminal and copy/paste the following command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver show-notifications true
This can also be done by using Dconf-editor, by navigating to org > gnome > desktop > screensaver and enabling “show-notifications”.
After enabling this option, you’ll get music player controls and the number of unread notifications in the GNOME Shell lock screen, like you can see in the screenshot above.
If you want to disable the notifications from showing up in the GNOME Shell lock screen, use:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver show-notifications false

These instructions should work with any Linux distribution running GNOME Shell 3.6 or newer.

Thanks to Dylan McCall for the tip!

Step By Step Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal) LAMP Server Setup


In around 15 minutes, the time it takes to install Ubuntu Server Edition, you can have a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server up and ready to go. This feature, exclusive to Ubuntu Server Edition, is available at the time of installation. The LAMP option means you don’t have to install and integrate each of the four separate LAMP components, a process which can take hours and requires someone who is skilled in the installation and configuration of the individual applications. Instead, you get increased security, reduced time-to-install, and reduced risk of misconfiguration, all of which results in a lower cost of ownership. Currently this installation provide PostgreSQL database, Mail Server, Open SSH Server, Samba File Server, Print Server, Tomcat Java Server, Virtual Machine Host, Manual Package selection, LAMP and DNS options for pre-configured installations, easing the deployment of common server configurations…

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.
