Installing Elementary Tweaks On Freya Or Luna

Installing Elementary Tweaks On Freya Or Luna

eOS-- Elementary OS is an amazing desktop environment that is based on Ubuntu which is one of if not the most popular Linux distro on the planet. The newest version of Elementary OS is named "Freya" but unfortunately for the longest time the beloved Elementary Tweaks was not compatible, well that is until now.


Elementary Tweaks is a way to gain (almost) full control on how you can manipulate your desktop environments look and feel. Whether it is to change your icons, manage how your windows are looking and a better control over a lot more.


This can be installed on both the Luna version of Elementary OS as well as the newer, still in development Freya. Installing it only takes 3 commands that you will need to enter in your terminal and you won't even need to reboot your PC.



To install Elementary Tweaks on LUNA type or copy and paste each of the commands below followed by pressing enter after each one.


sudo apt-add-repository ppa:versable/elementary-update -y

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks



To install Elementary Tweaks on FREYA type or copy and paste each of the commands below followed by pressing enter after each one.


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily

sudo apt-get update

You can locate the Elementary Tweaks inside your system settings.


Here is a quick video that will show you how to install it or you can simply copy and paste the commands below into your terminal followed by pressing enter after each one. If you have any questions make sure to ask them on the YouTube video page, which you can get to by clicking the Video's tittle located at the top of the video below.
