ubuntu-tweak broken in 18.3 ?

Post by robertmf » Wed Feb 07, 2018 1:13 pm

linux mint 18.3 64b MATE

No satisfaction with adding the ubuntu-tweak ppa in 18.3.
ppa:tualatrix/ppa
https://launchpad.net/~tualatrix/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

I don't know :cry: what "xenial" is ...

Cannot add ppa. "This ppa does not support xenial"

just download the .deb file form here https://launchpad.net/ubuntu-tweak it's on the right side with green button but you should know that ubuntu tweak is no good for anything most options are not working in 17.3 so i doubt it works any better in 18.3 the only thing i could see ubuntu-tweak being used for is removing kernels with the janitor

Exactly. Dangerous and destructive even:

Avoid it like the plague.
