updating in ubuntu tweak 0.5.14

Asked by ray30 on 2011-11-26

when I start Ubuntu tweak it shows an outstanding update of wine so I install it and says installed ok, but when I
restart my o/s and restart tweak it still shows the app needs updating.
the app is wine windows compatible meta package, and this not showing thru kpackagekit in k10.10 mm?

Could you give me a screenshot?

ray30 (rayburke30) said : #5

Ding Zhou,

yes I will, but how do I attach this to this site?

ray
ps I have sent the attached thru to your email address at <email address hidden>

Ding Zhou (tualatrix) said : #6

Hi, ray.

I've received your screenshot. Thank you

By the way, this feature has been removed for the 0.6 version.

And I hope you can try the new version: http://blog.ubuntu-tweak.com/2011/12/13/ubuntu-tweak-0-6-is-close-to-releasing.html

Do remember, it is still beta so may have some bugs.

ray30 (rayburke30) said : #7

Ding Zhou,

when I linked to that site it says that is for ubuntu 11.10 and above but I run Kubuntu
10.10 maverick, so should I still use the 0.6 and how can I get it in a .deb format

ray30 (rayburke30) said : #8

No, you can't, because Ubuntu Tweak 0.6 only supports Ubuntu 11.10.

I recommend you to upgrade your system to Kubuntu 11.10.

ray30 (rayburke30) said : #12

Ding Zhou,

I want to keep k10.10 MM as I like it, as I dont want to go thru the hassells
of upgrading to 11.10(which I have not got)

Hi ray30, you can add the PPA via Terminal by executing these command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-tweak-testing/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

Then tell us what you think about the program. Hope that helps :-)

Oh I see. Alright, instead of adding that repository, use this one ppa:tualatrix/next. So the commands are

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/next
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

Ding Zhou (tualatrix) said : #20

I'm sorry the two update items in Ubuntu Tweak may not the real update, so you can just ignore it.

ray30 (rayburke30) said : #21

Ding Zhou,

So mean that I have updated to 0.06 OK but the remaining two updates it still show,just ignore
them OK ?

I have noticed thru IceWalkers app that ubuntu tweak 0.6.2 has been
released and stable ,so I downloaded the .deb format and installed but
missing repository "python-aptdeamon.gtk3widgets" and cant seem to
find to download it then install the update 0.6.2, as I have 0.6 with
my K10.10mm
do you know how to fix it?

Ding Zhou (tualatrix) said : #27

@ray30

Ubuntu Tweak 0.6.2 doesn't support 10.10, it only support 11.10, so...
