Ubuntu Unity 2D tweaking tool

Filed under
Software

A 2D, less resource hungry version of Ubuntu Unity is available for installation in Ubuntu 11.04 – but can it be tweaked, configured and adjusted like its elder 3D-toting sibling?

Mariano Chavero mailed us news of a small yet simple ‘tweaking tool’ he has created specifically for Ubuntu Unity 2D users that makes the few tweaking options available easier for users to access.

He writes: “This is a very simple GUI application that saves time browsing folders and adding values, or writing commands on the terminal to get the Unity-2D GConf Settings customized.

Re: Ubuntu Unity 2D tweaking tool

One of my biggest complaints about Unity up to this point has been the fact that you can't configure the taskbar behavior, but as it turns out, you can. One of the comments on that article clued me into the fact... you just simply need to download the Compiz configuration tool, which has a Unity entry.

Why on earth isn't a configuration tool like this installed by default!? When I first got into Unity, I even Google searched up and down for ways to configure the taskbar, but came up short-handed. I guess Canonical just assumes most people will like the default behavior of the taskbar... for some reason.

  • ocs-client GSoC
    So my GSoC is coming to its end. I have no cool screenshots to upload this time and I have no new great features to talk about, in fact Caludio and I manly focused on bugfixing and testing. We have spent time also discussing about possible changes and improvements to the current OCS protocol. So is the client ready do be lunched? In short I would say that no, not yet.. although most of its features are implemented and it is usable, it is still an “under construction” project, we both still have to make some important decisions to make it usable to everyone.

    and refactoring it again, to make sure the codebase remains as clean as possible. The result of that is that an implementation of a simple resource only takes a couple of template instantiations, apart from code that interacts with the datasource (e.g. your IMAP Server) which I obviously can’t do for the resource.

    Language learning is often considered as the task of memorizing new vocabulary and understanding the new grammar rules. Yet for most, the most challenging part is to actually get used to speak the new language. This is a problem that Artikulate approaches with a simple idea: to learn the correct pronunciation of a word or even a longer phrase, the learner listens to a native speaker recording, repeats and recordings it, and finally compares both recordings to improve herself/himself with the next try.
