Unity Configuration Tool ‘Unsettings’ Updates With Ubuntu 14.04 Support

Last updated: December 8, 2014


Unsettings, the graphical configuration tool for Unity desktop, is “back” by releasing the 0.09 release with Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 14.10 support.

It has been 2 years since the last 0.08 was released in 2012 with support up to Ubuntu 12.10.

Unsettings is developed by Florian Diesch, the man behind Classic Menu Indicator. It allows you to change setting for the Dash, Launcher, Panel, Indicator, Privacy, Fonts, Themes, and more. There are also some options that Unity Tweak Tool and Ubuntu Tweak don’t have, such as Web Apps, Menus/Buttons have icons, Keyboard settings, etc.

Install Unsettings 0.09 in Ubuntu 14.04/Ubuntu 14.10/Ubuntu 12.04:

Download the binary package (.deb) from the link below, then double-click to open it with Ubuntu Software Center and finally click install Unsettings.

The developer has also made the binary into his PPA repository, available for Ubuntu 12.04/14.04/14.10 and even the next Ubuntu 15.04. Run commands below one by one in terminal to add the PPA and install Unsettings:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:diesch/testing

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install unsettings

Once installed, start the configuration tool from the Unity Dash and enjoy!
