Tweaking Ubuntu desktop and system settings

Although there are loads more configuration options on Ubuntu compared to Windows, there are some things that just seem to take too much time to do. So, in order to make life easier I installed Ubuntu Tweak. It’s a great little application which allows you to pimp your ubuntu installation without having to follow long tutorials explaining how to edit configuration files etc.

Ubuntu Tweak is a tool for Ubuntu that makes it easy to configure your system and desktop settings.

Ubuntu Tweak allows a wide variety of customization and one is able to easily remove unneeded applications which just seem to fill up memory. It provides configuration for the following system sections: Applications, Startup, Desktop, System.

It’s maintained by a single developer who has a passion for open source software and he regularly releases updates for the application.

It’s really easy to install and one can install it using the following 3 methods:

  1. Download the actual source and then manually install with a batch script


  2. Download the Debian installation file and just run it


  3. Or, use apt-get in the command line. This is what I used and it installed quickly and without any problems

    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak
