After I installed tweak using "Sudo apt-get install tweak" i went to dash home and i searched for "Ubuntu tweak" but it did not find it, so i tried to install it again but it told me "tweak is already the newest version."

what should i do?

tweak is actually a hex editor. Open a terminal window and try typing 'tweak'. – fabricator4 Dec 9 '12 at 19:56

As said tweak is not the same as ubuntu-tweak. I'm using the ppa provided by Ding Zhou:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

ubuntu-tweak is not in the standard repositories. You can download it from here:
