GNOME Tweak Tool Update Lets You Move Windows Controls

A brand-new version of the GNOME Tweak Device is available for testing in Ubuntu 17.10– and it includes some cool new options!

You could review a full surmise of the changes in the GNOME Tweak Tool 3.25.2 post news, yet the crucial tweaks and adjustments to the device you’ll would like to know around are:

  • ‘ Concerning’ dialog now reveals GTK+ version number
  • Option to disable trackpad while typing
  • Choice to present battery percentage in leading bar
  • Set area of window buttons
  • New ‘Extensions’ page design
  • Tweaks to ‘Desktop computer’ pane
  • The layout of the GNOME Covering Extensions page has been modified to conform to the layout of various other panes, i.e. with toggle switches on the right-hand side. This looks much neater, though the app no more allows you mount or get rid of expansions. To do that you’ll have to use GNOME Software.

It remains to be seen which side Ubuntu will certainly choose to put window controls on. It was an inquiry asked as part of the recent GNOME desktop computer customer survey. Whichever side Ubuntu select having a switch to switch the side easily accessible in an application such as this indicates it won’t be such a huge offer.

Install GNOME Tweak Tool 3.25.2

All these changes detailed in this message will take place to ship as component of GNOME Tweak Tool 3.26, which will certainly be formally launches alongside GNOME 3.26 in September.

If you’re running the Ubuntu 17.10 day-to-day builds you could install this advancement photo right now. Just visit Ubuntu Software program, search for ‘GNOME Tweak Tool’ and also click the ‘mount switch to, well, you know!

Additionally, tap this button:

If you’re running Ubuntu 17.04 with GNOME you could also upgrade to this version of GNOME Tweak Tool by downloading the Artful package and mounting it through dpkg (or comparable). This approach isn’t sustained and also you might experience insects.

Should It Be a Default App?
On a side note, do you assume GNOME Tweak Tool should be installed by default on Ubuntu 17.10?

I appreciate that it’s typically taken into consideration an ‘innovative’ app, and not something Joe Individual ought to be jabbing around in. But truthfully, several of the settings in this application are ones we’ve all concerned expect access to. And with the Ubuntu 17.10 desktop likely to ship with GNOME Extensions pre-installed, this application would certainly provide users with an easy method to disable or transform setups (like showing touchpad while typing).

If not, can tell you know since setting up GNOME Tweak Tool will be provided in our ‘things to do after installing Ubuntu 17.10’ write-up!
