I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.01 in a VirtualBox machine and Unity Tweak Tool works perfectly, everything.

However, after installing Ubuntu in a spare drive (not a virtual machine), Unity Tweak Tool doesn't change themes and font settings (hinting, antialiasing etc.). I haven't tested other settings, but at least it changes panel transparency settings.

Maybe it's something with NVIDIA drivers?

Had same problem after my 14.10 hang up. Solved via:

  1. Open dconf-editor
  2. Go to org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings
  3. Unset and then set again active checkbox.


gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings active false gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings active true
