While playing around with my new Ubuntu 10.4 installation, I searched for a quick and easy way to setup Compiz’s screen edge features to show me my windows, desktop and workspaces – but that doesn’t seem to be possible in the default installation. One has to install the Compiz Settings Manager and then do it from there. Sure, easy enough – even though that thing is a beast with all its configuration options.
But while poking around the net, I came across Ubuntu Tweak that features a seriously nice, stripped down interface for that – and so much more.
This application should seriously be considered being added to the default installation. “Hide” it somewhere if you need to, name it “Advanced Tweaks” or something, but it’s absolutely helpful to quickly change some more hidden configuration options if you need to.
Kudos to the developer!
Oh, to install it:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak
