Install Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.4 on Linux Mint 14


This weekend, I decided to install on my machine the operating system Linux Mint 14 “Nadia” and one of the things that I missed at the very beginning has been the tool “Ubunut Tweak” which allows easy installation of third party software and configure a lot of hidden features of the Ubuntu-based operating systems.

In this post, we will install the 0.8.4 version of “Ubuntu Tweak” in Linux Mint 14 “Nadia”. To do so, we follow these steps:

1.- Add the repository of Ubuntu Tweak


Open a terminal, and write the following:

# sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa


2.- Update thelist of available packages


We will do it with the classic command:

# sudo apt-get update

3.- Install Ubuntu Tweak


Thenext step is install the tool with the command:

# sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak


4.- Run Ubuntu Tweak


Finally we will run the application through the Linux Mint menu, as shown in the following screenshot:

Clicking the icon will access the application which looks similar to the following screenshot:
