How can I install elementary tweaks on elementary OS 0.4 Loki Beta?


2 Answers 2


You can install redesigned version elementary tweaks on Loki.

sudo apt install software-properties-common --no-install-recommends
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks
sudo apt update
sudo apt install elementary-tweaks

Note: please, read elementary team's stance before installation tweaks.

  • I got 2 errors : * it's not signed thus no updates * "Unable to locate package elementary-tweaks"

  • These commands arent workimg for me. I got the latest release of Loki tho I dont know which version exactly that is. Commented Nov 24, 2017 at 17:22
  • Those should work... The && will simply run the next command, so if you were pasting them into terminal line by line, that may have been the problem. If you type the above in command-by-command without the &&, you should get it.

  • I did them with apt-get first. I thought this was the mistake so i did them with only apt now. Still cant find tweaks. Do i need to reboot? Commented Nov 24, 2017 at 18:25

I don't use any ppa. I manually downloaded the "elementary tweaks" packages from https://launchpad.net/~philip.scott/+archive/ubuntu/elementary-tweaks and I installed them with Eddy https://appcenter.elementary.io/com.github.donadigo.eddy.desktop

  • The last update was October 10, 2017. If I see new updates useful I'll replace it manually Commented Nov 26, 2017 at 23:32
