It's possible I'll add this in the next update.First need to run some tests. Thank you ukbrian for a suggestion. Cheers
I ran the new one in my LL install so I only saw the start and end screens so I tried to run it on the live DVD but no luck even if I su'ed so I've done a fresh install and when I've customized the install I'll do a video with some suggestions that I'll PM to you friend.

I had a bespoke office app written in front of me in Visual Basic, I learnt a lot so I'm used to working with devs but I'm into all the bells and whistles if they simplify or make it more intuative for the normal end user.

@N4RPS Thanks for the info, if you ever think I'm doing something wrong or ill advised please tell me so I'm not giving bad advice to users, I can correct the post then or anybody with permission.sloppy_zpspseeek6s.gif[/img][/URL]

What does IIRC mean?

Hello!

'apt-get upgrade' was mentioned on here a while back. Some people used that command, and it updated them with the current Ubuntu kernel. That's one of the reasons the 'Install Updates' script is recommended.

IIRC is "If I remember correctly" (A BIG problem for me these days)...

and me friend, it's remembering/sorting the the wheat from the chaff, If you look to the future where things are moving to it makes a lot of info irrevalent, kids learn from videos now days not the sacred written word, that's for geeks not normal users.

apologies for the crap video, I've been sleeping every other night for 3 weeks and that vid was rubbish and to long.

... I'll see if it's possible to return to the main dialog after all tasks are complete.


Since you can check as many boxes that you want there is no need to go back to the main dialog, I think it was better before when Linux Tweaks just closed itself after completing the tasks.

In order for Lite Tweaks to evolve and take on more tools for people to use in the future, somewhat of a layout change is required to accommodate these future additions. There may be as many as 20 - 30 tools in the future so we need to be sensible about this and prepare now, so that people have enough time to get used to the layout.

Coming soon:

- Name column is alphabetical - with the list set to grow, people need to find tools easily. Names are listed concisely.
- New 'Task' column - If you just want to clean, you can sort to show all the Clean tools first.

Added ability to remove archive logs which should run into the mb on most peoples machines. Should be released this week after some testing.

See what your archived log files have added up to with this command:

Code: [Select]
sudo find /var/log -type f \( -iname \*.gz -o -iname \*.0 -o -iname \*.1 \) -exec du -csh '{}' + | tail -1 | awk '{print $1}' | sed 's/$/B/'

We won't be doing that simply because some 'tweaks' aren't related to size. That's why we included size in the 'Description Column'. What we will do in the future is include a 'Total' of all the cleaning tasks combined.

Great new features. Just one question, is it possible to have it autoclose after all the cleaning is done? Maybe with a box to tick when you want it to autoclose after finishing.

The reason there is no 'autoclose' is that you'll have no way to check if your settings have taken.
