Unity Tweak Tool

Unity Tweak Tool is the tool to manage the desktop settings on Ubuntu. This tool seems to be a fork or updated version of the GNOME Tweak Tool.

  • It can be installed from the Ubuntu archives:
$ sudo apt install unity-tweak-tool
  • It can be started as Unity Tweak Tool from the Dash or unity-tweak-tool from the shell.

  • I primarily use it to set the fonts in the desktop apps.

  • Note that when you change the Default Font, the entire desktop has to be restarted. Unity will kill all your desktop apps, logout of your session and leave you at the login screen!

Tried with: Unity Tweak Tool 0.0.6 and Ubuntu 14.04
