Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.6 released with major feature- Desktop Recovery
Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.6 released, this new version comes with a major feature called – Desktop recovery. In the announcement is well described this new feature so lets see what is desktop recovery, what items can backup and how does it work :
“Desktop Recovery is the tool integrated into Ubuntu Tweak to help people safely tweak with desktop settings, and never worry about how to go back.
It has three basic actions:
- Backup: backup the current settings, keep as many as backups you want;
- Recover: recover to the backup;
- Reset: even you don’t have any backup, you can also reset to the default settings;
And what items does Desktop Recovery can backup? Here’s it is:
- GNOME Desktop settings: Panel, Themes, Background;
- Application settings which use GConf: gedit, Compiz, Empathy, Nautilus…You know, almost every desktop applications;
- System components: Input method (ibus), network-manager, proxy…
You can see, Desktop Recovery covers almost everything of desktop/applications.
One thing You MUST know: it will only operate with the setting, not the files related with the setting. E.G. It will backup the setting about the background name, but not the real background file.
Now let me show you some screenshots.
Desktop Recovery comes with an easy-to-use interface, it has three categories of settings to backup: Desktop, Applications and System.
When you select on category, you can backup all the sub-settings under it at once, of course you can also backup the individual setting by selecting it.
Desktop Recovery supports unlimited backup items, so all the backup history will be listed. You can rename, or delete it.
Let’s start from a real-world case.
My desktop panel is broken like this, how can it go back? It’s quick and easy!
Open Ubuntu Tweak, enter the Desktop Recovery, select the “Applications”->”panel”. Even I haven’t backup before, I can still press “Reset” to go back.
After resetting, you should logout and login, finally, the original desktop has came back!
How do you like this feature?
Besides the Desktop Recovery, now almost all options in Ubuntu Tweak are followed by a “Reset Button” to revert to the original default value.
You know how to use it, the tool-tip will tell you the default value, then just click it.
All the backups will be saved under: ~/.config/ubuntu-tweak/desktoprecovery/
So you can easily to save these files, or sync with Ubuntu One
Install in Ubuntu via repository:
Open terminal and enter the following command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak
