Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


MyUnity, a tool to customize Unity, has reached version 3.0. The new version brings a new user interface, full support for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin which includes some features that were recently added to Precise like hiding apps available for download from Dash, as well as some other new features.

The latest MyUnity 3.0 also comes with a feature that wasn't available for Unity in any GUI applications: easily adding or deleting quicklists (well, there was a GUI quicklist editor but it's broken for a long time). With MyUnity 3.0, you can edit quicklists for applications locked to launcher with just a few clicks and MyUnity will even reload the icon to the launcher so you don't have to log out and log back in for the changes to take effect. This new option can be found under Launcher > Quicklists:


The new quicklist editor is only available for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin and won't show up in MyUnity running under Ubuntu versions.

MyUnity 3.0 also includes options to change the GTK or icon theme:
