elementary tweaks

elementary tweaks is a system settings panel for elementary OS Juno that lets you easily and safely customise your desktop's appearance


What's New?

  • Fully updated and working to reflect the changes of elementary OS Juno
  • elementary-tweaks now looks more "elementary"! We've rebuilt elementary tweaks from the ground up to make it look like a native plug for your settings settings.
  • Fixed: Removed theme-patcher and other more dangerous settings that were causing problems

Previous Changelog

Special Thanks

This repository is a fork of the original elementary-tweaks and could not have been done without the work of its authors Michael P. Starkweather, Michael "Versable" Langfermann, PerfectCarl, Marvin Beckers and additional contributors.
