‘Gunity’ provides easily-accessible options for tweaking aspects of the Unity interface without the need to install Compiz Configuration
Settings manager, wade through dconf settings or apply scripts.
Support for tweaking the various features in Unity – such as Unity Launcher size, shortcuts, Launcher behaviour, etc – is not easily accessible in Ubuntu out of the box.
One can install the ‘Compiz Config Settings Manager’ to adjust many of these or, now, via ‘GUnity’ – a standalone application that puts many of Unity’s tweakable features under one window.
GUnity provides easy access to tweaking many aspects of Unity including: -
- Adjust the size of the launcher icons
- Change the panel opacity
- Change the Launcher hiding animation and visibility
- Enable or disable blur for Dash
- Edit the ‘reveal’ mode
- Tweak the number of workspaces/rows
And much, much more.
GUnity can be downloaded at blog.ckdevelop.org/data/
To run, extract the .bzr.tz archive, enter the resulting folder, then double-click on the ‘gunity.sh’ file inside.
