Tweaks And Super-wingpanel

Newcomers to elementary OS : since the website elementaryupdate seems to be dead I thought it would be wise to write a post about adding Tweaks to System Settings and replacing Wingpanel with Super-wingpanel.

With elementary Tweaks, you can change themes, fonts, configure advanced Plank options, tweak animation timings, configure Files and Slingshot. It is written as a plug and therefor integrates into Switchboard ( System Settings ).

First of all we need to add the Elementary Update PPA to our software sources. Open a terminal and type :

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:versable/elementary-update
sudo apt-get update

Then install elementary Tweaks:
sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks

Applications > System Settings > Tweaks




Install Superwingpanel :
sudo apt-get install super-wingpanel


Applications > System Settings > Tweaks > check Super Wingpanel

Log out and in again....

Slim mode :

  6. Without a global menu, Freya seems like a beautiful white pigeon that can not fly.
