    Ok, will do that – Videonauth Dec 20 '16 at 16:22

You just typing it wrong it should be:

sudo apt install unity-tweak-tool 

Sure you would agree that the system is telling you something isn't right is a good thing, sadly it doesn't really do that in a satisfactory way.

To prevent future mishaps like this you can simply use apt-cache search to get the proper package name.


apt-cache search unity-tweak

will result in this:

$ apt-cache search unity-tweak
unity-tweak-tool - configuration tool for the Unity desktop environment
  • yep funny how such small mistakes can prevent an entire commnd. thnks man – Ben Acosta Dec 20 '16 at 16:35
