Try 'Precise Tweak' to Customize Ubuntu Linux 12.04

Filed under
Software
Ubuntu

Customizability has always been one of Linux's best defining features, and the newly released Ubuntu Linux 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” is no exception.

Now available as a free download, Ubuntu Tweak 0.7.0--also known as “Precise Tweak”--is a brand-new version designed to help you make Ubuntu 12.04 your own. If you've been playing around with the new Ubuntu and wish some things were different about it, this new open source tool can help you make it what you want.

A New Search Feature

It was Ubuntu Tweak 0.6.0 that I covered back in January, and since then a number of additions have been made to the software, including a more polished user interface and even more ways to tweak Ubuntu.

The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up technically unable to release that weekend.

I hope these questions will help you determine whether open source is a good fit for your next software project. Let me know if there are other questions you would add to this list. Read more
