MyUnity 2.0 released with animated and enriched interface (Ubuntu 11.04 & 11.10)

Unity shell is a gorgeous, fast and reliable interface that is to be "ported" to phones, tablets and various devices, but, being a relative young project, the developers have been focused on delivering a strong, finished and stable platform sacrificing the ability to easily in-depth configure Unity.

Consequently, a configuration tool was and still is asked by numerous user, although Unity is easily configurable via CompizConfig Settings Manager with clear options and decent space to maneuver Unity.

For folks who are not comfortable with CCSM, there is MyUnity, a tool that categorizes the tweaking options in a polished animated interface, with "live" settings, that are applied immediately.

MyUnity has just been updated to version 2.0, bringing a slider-like interface with an animated transition when changing "pages", slider triggered by the right-edge navigation button.

The settings are now in English (the default language).

MyUnity 2.0 gives 1-click away Unity adjustments, like launcher's size, transparency, behavior, backlights mode, Dash's blur type, Unity panel opacity, font's size, type and preview and much more.

Every configuration page in handy equipped with a bottom-right reset button, that reverts every tweak to Unity's default settings.

How do we install MyUnity 2.0?
Add the following official PPA (Natty, Oneiric)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:myunity/ppa

sudo apt-get update
