Installing Gnome Tweak Tool on Natty
If you’ve been a follower of the Gnome Shell development, you’re most likely aware that there isn’t any ‘GUI’ tool available to customize the interface itself. Some of these customizations may include changing the basic GTK+ theme, or perhaps, switching the icons and so on…
However, a generous developer has created the ‘GNOME Tweak Tool’ for this exact reason. It’s a ‘power user’ application you can use to tweak Gnome 3’.But if you ask me, this tool can be of plenty assistance not just to power users, but all Gnome users in whole.
Note: You can use this tool only if you have Gnome3 installed in ubuntu Natty.
Some of the highlighted features from its own website:
- Install and switch gnome-shell themes
- Switch gtk themes
- Switch icon themes
- Change he user-interface and titlebar fonts
- Icons in menus and buttons
- Behavior on laptop lid close
- Shell font size
Titlebar click action
Shell clock to show date
Font hinting and antialiasing
The tool itself doesn’t come by default with Gnome 3, but it’s not too hard to install either. You just need the gnome3-team/gnome3 ppa added. If you already don’t have it, start with executing the following.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool
That’s all there’s to it. The application itself is very friendly to use and you’ll find that almost every aspect of the user interface is customizable. Well then, happy modifications!
