How do I install Ubuntu-Tweak?

1

For users of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS who still need Ubuntu Tweak, especially for its Janitor (system cleaning) feature, a repacked of 0.8.7 release now is available in GetDeb repository.

If you have already added Getdeb App repository, just search for and install Ubuntu Tweak via your package manager or use apt install command. For those who don’t want to add the repository, follow the steps below:

1. Download the deb installer:

2. Click install the package via Ubuntu Software.

Or open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), run the commands below one by one to install it via dpkg and fix dependency problem via apt:

I have heard a lot about Ubuntu-Tweak and how it is great for power users, but I don't know how to install it.

How do I do that?


The Ubuntu-Tweak Home screen

Instructions:

Installing Ubuntu-Tweak is rather simple and easy. Follow these simple steps, and you will have Ubuntu-Tweak installed, and be on your way to tweaking Ubuntu to your liking.

For 12.10 and Earlier:

Steps:

Add the PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa

What are PPAs and how do I use them? Are PPA's safe to add to my system and what are some "red flags" to watch out for?

Update your sources. (Steps are listed below. Chose the method that fits your scenario):

Ubuntu Software Center:

Ubuntu Software Center will run this step automatically after adding the PPA.

Synaptic:

From the command line (terminal):

Now to install Ubuntu-Tweak:

So I searched on this and ended up here:

http://www.computeractive.co.uk/tags/linux

Where I downloaded the file

ubuntu-tweak_0.4.9.2-1~karmic1_i386.deb

It's a .deb file. How did you install it?

I would have done

sudo dpkg -i /path/to/ubuntu-tweak_0.4.9.2-1~karmic1_i386.deb

So maybe you can remove it with sudo dpkg --purge /path/to/ubuntu-tweak_0.4.9.2-1~karmic1_i386.deb ?

Actually, that should not matter. The problem is probably because it is not fully installed. apt will usually try to get the package into a sane state before removing it. This can often be circumvented by using dpkg directly.

Code:

sudo dpkg --purge ubuntu-tweak

If that does not work, please post the output.

Cheers,

Evo2.

Thanks for your help. I have now answered the questions as requested in the original thread. (

I can't install Ubuntu tweak on 16.04. I've had it on 4 previous versions of Ubuntu, so I know exactly what to do in order to install it, it just doesn't work on 16.04.

Is anyone having the same problem?

Can anyone help?

Although the program is now abandonware (I am sad too) there is a repackaged version which works on 16.04 announced in this article.

There is a ppa here

deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu xenial-getdeb apps

for which the key is

wget -q -O- http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -

Or you can just download the .deb from here

http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu/pool/apps/u/ubuntu-tweak/ubuntu-tweak_0.8.7-1~getdeb2~xenial_all.deb

As L. D. James has already answered that Ubuntu tweak is discontinued and you better use other alternatives like Unity Tweak tool or Gnome Tweak Tool, but If you really want to use Ubuntu tweak on Xenial Xerus (16.04), here is the procedure. But, be warned that, many of...

Question: I am trying to customize fresh Ubuntu desktop that I just installed. For that, I want to use Unity Tweak Tool. How can I install Unity Tweak Tool on Ubuntu?

Unity Tweak Tool is a popular Unity desktop customization tool. As the name implies, this tool is applicable to Ubuntu's default desktop environment only (i.e., Unity-based GNOME desktop). This versatile tool allows you to customize a wide variety of Unity desktop features and configurations via extremely intuitive and easy-to-use GUI. Its menu looks similar to Ubuntu's official System Settings, but its desktop customization capabilities far exceed those of the default System Settings. Using Unity Tweak Tool, you can customize appearance, behaviors and configurations for a plethora of desktop components, such as workspace, windows, icons, themes, cursors, fonts, scrolling, hot corners, etc. If you are a Unity desktop user, Unity Tweak Tool is definitely a must-have app.

Note : Ubuntu Tweak Tool project has been discontinued. However, some users still find it a great tool to work with themes and some system properties.

Ubuntu Tweak is a handy tool for making changes in configuration and desktop settings. It allows tweaks for desktop and system configuration which are not natively supported. I was trying some best Ubuntu themes for my Ubuntu 16.04 system and I missed the Ubuntu Tweak tool to pick up a theme once I installed it.

There's a PPA still alive from where we can install Ubuntu Tweak Tool in Ubuntu 16.04 and for later releases. Let's see how you can do that too.

Features of Ubuntu Tweak Tool

Provides options to change themes and font. Under the Tweak Settings, there are options to choose Fonts, Sounds, Themes, login settings, desktop icons and much more. Janitor is an awesome feature from Ubuntu tweak tool to clean out cache and recover disk space.

. It's been a tradition now that whenever a new Ubuntu version come out users look forward to tweak it or smooth some rough edges and somehow to make their experience much better with Ubuntu, I am not trying to say Ubuntu isn't perfect 'for sure it is' but a user like me may need some other things to be done after a fresh install and make it much better than any other OS available out there. Everything shared below is tested and works fine, so hopefully you won't...

Everyone knows that Ubuntu is not one of the most customizable operating systems, which is one of the problems that often come up in the Linux community. This is where the Ubuntu Tweak software will really help its users make head or tails of the Ubuntu Linux distro in a way that very few applications can.

We covered an earlier version of this software a couple of years ago, but things have changed quite a lot in the Ubuntu ecosystem since then, and so did Ubuntu Tweak. It now comes with even more features and has become one of the must-have tools for all Ubuntu users.

The fate of the application was called into question back in 2012, when the development was stopped and its developer, Ding Zhou, said that he would abandon the project. It's unclear what made him change his mind but, since then, the application has got better, even if we don't get as many updates as we’d want to.

Even with all the updates that have been released in the past couple of years,...
