Elementary OS Freya: Enable tweaks


Recommended Posts

Lately i have been messing with Elementary OS, its a quite nice linux distro that unlike most others works and acts alot more like OSX.

Anyway - tip of the day - howto enable Elementary Tweaks on the latest beta of Freya

Original link: http://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos/comments/2cv41d/installingelementarytweaksonfreya/

Install Tweaks

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:versable/elementary-tweaks-isis
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks
Open schema file in text editor:
$ sudo scratch-text-editor /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/org.gnome.desktop.interface.gschema.xml

Insert the following text BEFORE the closing tag at the end of the file:
falseOverlay ScrollbarToggle the overlay scrollbar.$
Install dconf-editor
$ sudo apt-get install dconf-editor
Go to org->gnome->desktop->interface on dconf-editor
Find and enable ubuntu-overlay-scrollbars option
It then says to reboot but I would think logging out then back in of the desktop would be enough. Hope this works for everyone. Sorry if I screw up the markdown... First $

Compile schemas
sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
Now open Tweaks and all works
