Ubuntu Tweaks (old)

PPA description

Feb 2019 Note: This PPA has been discontinued in favor of a shorter name. For newer stuff, use my "tweaks" PPA instead of "ubuntutweaks".

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:
