I've had Ubuntu Tweak installed for months now. However, there seems to be a list of things that don't seem to work when I change them in Ubuntu Tweak. No matter what I do, Ubuntu Tweak will not make the changes that I select.

  • Tweaks -> Sound: does not work
  • Tweaks -> Theme: no matter what theme I choose for any of the settings it does not change it in my system
  • Tweaks -> Login Settings: does not change anything. doesn't even show the current cursor them that I am using

As I am writting this and going through Ubuntu Tweak, all of a sudden my panels and Cairo-Dock just disappear. Alt-Tab doesn't even work either and won't let me switch between applications.

  • It is Ubuntu, not Xubuntu Tweak, why do you expect it to work? – mikewhatever Aug 30 '13 at 17:59

Its because xubuntu uses a different ui. Whilst ubuntu uses unity, xubuntu uses xfce. Try this for changing the theme http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php?content=149647

  • Please include the gist of the solution here. – jobin Nov 19 '13 at 7:48
  • Ok I now have Xfce Theme Manager. Nifty little tool. – Jason Smith Nov 26 '13 at 7:22
