Does it still working on elementary OS Hera? is it safe to install?

Thanks and sorry for the odd question!

  • Just installed them the other day on 5.1 Hera - yes, they work. – SamAndrew81 Dec 10 '19 at 13:18

Yes elementary-tweak work very well with Hera's release.

I have it and I have no problem with. Like say @Bo_rislav :

Of course if you set a broken theme or something the layout will be broken but the os will not be destroyed if this is what you ask.

Here the link to the Github's project :
https://github.com/elementary-tweaks/elementary-tweaks


INSTALLATION

# Make sure you have software-properties-common
sudo apt search software-properties-common

# Output exemple
Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done
software-properties-common/bionic,bionic,now 0.96.24.32.11+elementary7~ubuntu5.0.1 all [installed]
  manage the repositories that you install software from (common)

# If it is not installed do it
sudo apt install software-properties-common

# Install elementary-tweaks
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks
sudo apt install elementary-tweaks

And if you want to remove the PPA as you suggest @duality you can do

# Remove ppa connection
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks
  • Thanks, that is what I was looking for! – JC Marín Dec 10 '19 at 23:02

Yes it is usable, personally I would install then remove the ppa:

# Make sure you have software-properties-common
sudo apt install software-properties-common

# Install elementary-tweaks
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks
sudo apt install elementary-tweaks

#Remove ppa connection
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks

Yes, they works. The developper pretend that the way they are built is safe for the sysytem, as long as I know there is no any harm for the system by using elementary tweaks. Of course if you set a broken theme or something the layout will be broken but the os will not be destroyed if this is what you ask.
