The prospect of using many different utils and/or dropping into the CLI can be daunting for any Linux user. This is especially true for the new to Linux. Ubuntu Tweak aims to be an all in one package that allows simple customization of your desktop without the worry of typing the wrong command or messing things up!
First off, its a very small download (890k)ish and once installed is a simple affair allowing you to scroll down your various options of startup, desktop etc, in order to customize.
One of the features that I think will appeal to newer (or even lazy) users is the option to delete the .deb package cache. Another useful feature is to be able to select what software is loaded at startup.
There is all sorts of other simplicities with Tweak v0.4.3 and certainly for my family members it is a far more approachable (and collected) way of doing those “tweaks” that make all the difference.
The package I tested was run on 8.10 and worked flawlessly.
85% – Great for new users and the lazy alike! Simplifies alot of those tweaks, and its only a tiny file!
