Thanks for this awesome app!
It runs flawlessly on my 64 bit Ubuntu (and bravo that you pay attention for the 64 bit edition!)
As a person that continually converts others to Ubuntu, I choose this app to be default to new installations.

Some questions:
1)Is there a ppa for the app?
2)Do you plan to cooperate with the guy that makes the ubuntu tweak?
These two apps coexist nicely but it would be better if they could learn from each other.
I'm not talking about merging the apps but for the prospect for both to become better!

Finally, I hope, like others do, that this app will eventually become default in future ubuntu editions!
I will lobby for this!

Thanks for the kind words ! Right now i'm working on a PPA for UCC and porting the code to launchpad. Some other people already ask me that, but there's no relationship of UCC and Ubuntu Tweak, to say the truth i think that they are both configuration tools, but each one serves to diferents purposes. The goal for next release is on translation. ;)

This must be in the new Ubuntu 10.10, or at least in 11.04 :D

Thanks, i would be very happy if that happen, but i doubt that canonical will use it. If UCC influence in someway the design of Gnome-control-center 3, i'll consider it as mission acomplished. :)

Nice app. This is definitely a direction I feel ubuntu should go with regards to settings.

A few comments on technical issues with this app tho:

- You have a bad uninstall script in your package, don't rm -R /usr/local/bin

- Secondly I don't want to have to install every configuration utility you think users want, it should work to guide us to our settings, not to install configuration tools for things the average user never needs, e.g. firewall or joystick configuration.
You might offer to launch a graphical installer if say they want to configure their firewall - but I wouldn't go beyond that in terms on intrusiveness.

- Thirdly, a search field would be a nice touch

Good work on the rest of it, especially the UI style =)

Thanks for your comments. Let's go to your observations:

- Sorry, but you must have mistake something, there's NO such uninstall script inside UCC. Everything is done throught the package manager.

- I tried to add some applications that doesn't come by default and might be useful to the majority of average users. If people doesn't like the way it is i can made it ask to install the package on the first use in future releases.

- Agreed. I'll try to work on that for next versions.
