Elementary Tweak, a great tool for Elementary OS users

The tools called “Tweak” are emerging like water in a spring and no wonder as more and more novice users starting in the GNU / Linux world or those who prefer to make configurations and configuration in a graphical way.

Surely many of you have changed Ubuntu for Elementary OS to be simpler or you changed Unity to Pantheon, The Elementary OS desktop. I did the latter and came across a very interesting tool for setting it up: Elementary Tweak.

Why install and use Elementary Tweak?

The first thing we should ask ourselves is why should I use this tool and not another. In my case, the best argument is that i don’t have as much time as opening a terminal and writing commands and codes repeatedly, So I opt for a little more graphics that allow me to use the mouse, although I know that sometimes this can be slower. Another reason to use Elementary Tweak is that through your program I can find all program options and settings which have nothing to do with Elementary OS but with their programs like Plank. In this case we can create more productive or useful appearances.

Elementary Tweak installation

Unfortunately this program is not even in the repositories of Elementary OS so we have to open a terminal and write the following for the installation of the program:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks

‘Important !! Elementary Tweak through this installation does not work well with the latest versions of Pantheon, The ones that correspond to Loki, so if you’re installing Loki, it’s best not to try it. If you use previous versions you can use it with complete peace of mind.


Personally I’ve been using it for a few days and I thought it was a great tool that also allows me to configure Plank graphically. And in some cases it also lightens the system, although some do not believe it. Anyway, if you use Pantheon, I think Elementary Tweak is a must-have tool Don’t you believe?
