You may be aware of Ubuntu Tweak application, it is great utility but it is no longer in development (discontinued) and developer abandoned this project 4 years ago. The last release was for Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty/Linux Mint 17.x but the latest release also works fine in Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial/Linux Mint 18.x. Ubuntu Tweak was mainly designed to manage Ubuntu system and desktop settings but it can also work in Ubuntu based distributions (some of the features won't work if you are not using Unity desktop). It is easier to use, free and was released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2.
This utility offers many features which you can't find in system and desktop settings options. It lets you change lots of things in your system such as: adding scripts to file manager, running cleaner, change themes, change login screen background and so on.

  • Change Fonts
  • Change system sounds
  • Change themes and icons
  • Configure login screen (lightdm)
  • Options for Desktop icons
  • Configuration for Unity
  • Workspace settings
  • File Manager settings
  • Add scripts to File Manager
  • Assign default program to file types
  • Source editor
  • System Cleaner
  • and more.

Things/Tweaks to do after fresh install of Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn/Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr

Most awaiting release Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr LTS is arrived, Ubuntu team is heading towards great way and has done really great work, unlike previous releases this release got many new features and improvements. Unity 7 is much faster, responsive and a lot of things further you can see the release post of Ubuntu 14.04. After digging in this version I was wondering what tweaks/things a normal user should do with this release and make it much better than any other OS available out there. All tweaks are tested by NoobsLab, so hopefully you won't get any problem with them and if you encounter any problem feel free to ask. Lets start .....
Ubuntu 14.10 is released today, I was wondering what to tweak in this release and this time there aren't different tweaks for this release 14.10 than previous 14.04 Trusty. So you guys can continue following these tweaks for Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn. For some tweaks it is written "Only for 14.04 Trusty" these won't work in 14.10 Utopic as I tested.

Panel indicators are very handy when it comes to access bold features of application or any standalone indicator which offers various functionality for the desktop to make user experience better. This time I tried to gather all available indicators for 14.04 LTS in one place, so you guys don't have to explore the internet for specific indicator and you can also tell me if I missed any indicator here(Just drop me a line via contact page, I will try to include in the post, if possible).
If you are using Ubuntu 12.04 then you have to checkout this indicators collection post for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise. You can install these indicators in other desktop like Gnome-Classic, Mate, Cinnamon, Xfce and others but I can't say that every indicator will show up in every desktop, so I tested these indicators under Unity desktop. I didn't check these indicators on Linux Mint, hopefully they shall work with Linux Mint 17 without any problem.
