Ubuntu Tweak: An easy way to customise Ubuntu

I've known about Ubuntu Tweak for a white, but I never really used it. To be honest, I don't know why: it's an incredibly useful tool that saves hours of time searching for a terminal command of system file. It's beginner friendly too, with a graphical interface that is well designed, making it accessible to any user.
Tweak runs under standard privileges, so you shouldn't accidentally do something you didn't mean to and find your computer is broken.

Tweak combines lots of system utilities all into one place so you can easily find what you're looking for

Ubuntu Tweak is a "play, don't say" application. The best way you'll learn about it is to try it out for yourself instead of reading an article. It's stored in the standard repositories (ubuntu-tweak) and installs to Applications > System Tools > Ubuntu Tweak.

If you're still skeptical, here's a partial list of what you can do:
  • Search popular applications
  • Update Ubuntu
  • Change the login screen
  • Basic configuration of Compiz and title bars
  • Manage desktop icons
  • Change power settings
There's a whole load of other options too, but it's your preference that will decide whether to use them or not!
