UKUU v20.05 is now available
Secure Boot Warning
Since the mainline kernels are unsigned, they cannot be used if Secure Boot is enabled on your system. Installing unsigned kernels on such a system will fail with an error.
A warning will now be displayed if Secure Boot is enabled and you try to install a unsigned kernel. You can turn off this warning from the Settings window.
A Refresh button has been added to main window. It will clear the app cache and fetch list of available kernels from Ubuntu server.
I’m adding this button as many people have asked for it. There is almost no reason to have this button, as new kernels are normally released once a week, and Ukuu checks for new kernels automatically. It is useful in the rare scenario when you are having network issues and if the list is not updated for some reason.
Basic support for other kernels
In previous versions, the app could be used only if the active/running kernel was of a known type (official or mainline). If you were running some other kernel and it was unable to determine the type, then it would refuse to start.
Ukuu can now recognize kernels of some other types (xanmod and liquorix). Installing and removing these kernels is not supported, but installed kernels will show up in the list. If the active kernel is of unknown type then the app will start, but it will skip any actions that can cause problems (automatic updates, etc).
Other kernels will be displayed with a yellow icon.
- Clicking the Settings button will open a new window instead of displaying options in the same window. This fixes an issue with window resizing.
A personal licence for Ukuu is currently available for purchase. This is a single-user licence that is valid for lifetime, and includes future updates.
Install / Update
You will receive an email with installation steps after you purchase a licence.
If you have already installed the app, the update will install automatically when you update your system. You can install it manually with following commands:
sudo apt update && \ sudo apt install ukuu ukuu-gtk
