I've tried numbers of different PPAs from here and none of them seem to work for me. They're all installed, but the settings menu remains unchanged even after reboot. Any help would be great. It could possibly by user issue on my behalf.

1 Answer 1


First, I'd recommend removing all but the PPAs you have added. They're all out of date. To do that use these 3 commands:

sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily
sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:bmeznarsic/tweaks-freya
sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:versable/elementary-tweaks-isis

Then remove and add this ppa:

sudo apt-get remove --purge elementary-tweaks
sudo apt-add-repository -r ppa:justsomedood/justsomeelementary
sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks

And then it should be in your settings under Personal:

if it isn't, try a restart and check again. You could also try to search for "Tweaks".

Finally, if that doesn't work, there seems to be an issue with your install of elementary OS.

  • This is bad advice because all three repositories mentioned in the OP post are not actively maintained anymore.

  • I'd suggest not to suggest the usage of one of these three repositories.

  • @embik I mean, is there an alternative? And how do you know ppa:versable is unsupported?

  • The most up-to-date version of elementary-tweaks is located at GitHub. However, even this version has not been updated for months and Pull Requests are not processed. There is no alternative to suggest. Your answer is bad advice nonetheless.
