Ubuntu Tweaks

PPA description

This archive contains modified versions of Ubuntu packages, to address bugs and design flaws that aren't yet fixed in the official repositories.

Notes regarding update-notifier:

My patched version is able to show a notification icon (instead of launching update-manager in a minimized state) when updates are availabe. To enable this behavior, you must disable update-notifier's auto-launch mode using this command line:

gsettings set com.ubuntu.update-notifier auto-launch false

In addition, builds for Xubuntu 14.04 (trusty) and later display the icon using libappindicator instead of the GTK+ status icon API. Unfortunately, libappindicator's status icon fallback support appears to be broken. Xubuntu users must therefore add an Indicator plugin (from the xfce4-indicator-plugin package) to their desktop panel in order to make the icon visible.

libappindicator tracking bug:
