Ubuntu Unity 2D tweaking tool

Filed under
Software

A 2D, less resource hungry version of Ubuntu Unity is available for installation in Ubuntu 11.04 – but can it be tweaked, configured and adjusted like its elder 3D-toting sibling?

Mariano Chavero mailed us news of a small yet simple ‘tweaking tool’ he has created specifically for Ubuntu Unity 2D users that makes the few tweaking options available easier for users to access.

He writes: “This is a very simple GUI application that saves time browsing folders and adding values, or writing commands on the terminal to get the Unity-2D GConf Settings customized.

Re: Ubuntu Unity 2D tweaking tool

One of my biggest complaints about Unity up to this point has been the fact that you can't configure the taskbar behavior, but as it turns out, you can. One of the comments on that article clued me into the fact... you just simply need to download the Compiz configuration tool, which has a Unity entry.

Why on earth isn't a configuration tool like this installed by default!? When I first got into Unity, I even Google searched up and down for ways to configure the taskbar, but came up short-handed. I guess Canonical just assumes most people will like the default behavior of the taskbar... for some reason.
