Ubuntu Tweak

There are a lot of things that you can configure and customise in Ubuntu, unless you know your way around Linux, you have to spend time searching the net to find out how to tweak and configure certain things. I can remember when I first started using Ubuntu I spent a lot of time searching around for simple things like how to put the deleted items folder on the desktop. If you have used windows, you may have come across TweakXP or TweakVista, well now there's something similar for Ubuntu. Ubuntu Tweak tries to collect some of the useful tweaks and configs in one place. This little time-saving app is great for people who are new to Ubuntu. Here's some of the things it can do:

  • View of Basic System Information(Distribution, Kernel, CPU, Memory, etc.)
  • GNOME Session Control
  • Show/Hide and Change Splash screen
  • Show/Hide desktop icons or Mounted Volumes
  • Show/Hide/Rename Computer, Home, Trash icon or Network icon
  • Tweak Metacity Window Manager’s Style and Behavior
  • Compiz Fusion settings, Screen Edge Settings, Window Effects Settings, Menu Effect Settins
  • GNOME Panel Settings
  • Nautilus Settings
  • Advanced Power Management Settings
  • System Security Settings

Update: The software is now at version 0.3.5 and has many new improvements in the interface and support for more third party apps.
