Install Ubuntu Tweak on Lucid Lynx

I ran across a posting about Ubuntu Tweak a few months ago. I tried it out and now I couldn't live without!  So, what is Ubuntu Tweak? Well according to the developer, "Ubuntu Tweak is an application designed to configure Ubuntu easier for everyone. It provides many useful desktop and system options that the default desktop environment doesn't provide."

Interested yet? Here are some of the features that Ubuntu Tweak allows user to do:

  • Not having to install Sysinfo yet you can view the basic system information, i.e. distribution, kernel, CPU, memory, etc. 
  • You can set preferential applications to start up at boot.
  • You can access and install many popular applications in one click (okay two clicks!)
  •  Clean unwanted packages or system cache to free up RAM (this one is my favorite.)
  •  GNOME panel settings.
  •  System security settings.
  •  And more!
