Install elementary tweaks

Update (2019-01-03)


The official Github repository of elementary tweaks now explains the installation process:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks

If you have never added a PPA on Loki before, you might need to run this command first:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

Deprecated (from 2014)

After installing elementary OS I encountered two annoying issues:

  1. The file explorer of Luna is set to single click. So I came from Windows to LunaOS and so I am used to double clicking.
  2. I’m missing an minimize button in the windows.

To get rid of that I installed elementary tweaks that lets us customize a lot of aspects of elementary OS.

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

After installation we can find tweaks in System settings -> Tweaks. Now let’s „fix“ my issues:

  1. In applications -> files we disable single click.
  2. In general -> apperance we can customize the window buttons. I’d advice you to try it yourself due to all changes take effect in place.
