Thanks for the tip... cool little app. For those of us new to Ubuntu it is really quite handy to do some basic common customizations...

Cheers

it's nice, because you don't have to sit in the gnome channel asking what key to change for the desired effect. :) (and don't have to google it either).

EDIT: this is TweakUI for GNOME. :)

I love your theme! What is it? Can it be found on Gnome-look?

Control center under 'system' menu is a brilliant idea. This Ubtuntu Tweak will make easier to change system settings. I expects this to be added to the system as default soon.

I doubt that will happen.

All the things Ubuntu Tweak does can be done manually.

It's a great app for "noobs", it might be useful to add it to the repo, but to be installed by default, no thanks.

I agree it should be added to the repos, but installed by default will never happen.
add: how do we get them to add apps to the repos anyways?

Too right! I strongly dispute the contention that it's somehow nooby and simplistic to use an app like Tweak rather than manually configure everything yourself. Why do some folk figure that ease of use = an interface for the clueless?

An app like this could go a long way toward fixing the complaint that gnome is "too dumbed down" and "not configurable enough". Users that want simplicity and like the gnome defaults could ignore this program.

I am an experienced user that knows how to do all that stuff manually, and I still like it and use it. When I said good app for noobs it didn't mean that it wasn't good for pros too, Just trying to grab the noobbers attention, because they wouldn't be able to do any of this stuff with out it that's all

Isn't it nooby, and simplistic? When did this(an app being nooby, and simplistic) become a bad thing?
