If you use GNOME desktop environment on Fedora, you can use the default Settings app to access a wide variety of settings options.
GNOME Tweaks is a great little app that gives you access to extra options to modify your GNOME experience. This includes everything from extensions, to changing themes and tweaking power settings.
Today, I’ll be showing you how to install GNOME Tweaks on Fedora.
Method 1: Install GNOME Tweaks in Fedora from the Software Center
The easiest way to install GNOME Tweaks is via GNOME Software. Simply open Software and enter “GNOME Tweaks” into the search box. (It’s the little magnifying glass in the upper right corner.)
Click the page for the application and then click install. You may be asked for your password. Once the installation is complete, you will be able to find GNOME Tweaks in the applications menu.
Method 2: Install GNOME Tweaks in Fedora using the terminal
If you’re a power user, you can quickly install GNOME Tweaks from the terminal. Simply open the terminal of your choice and enter:
sudo dnf install gnome-tweaks
Enter your password when asked and enter
Y to approve the installation. Then you’re done.
An even faster method is to just type
gnome-tweaks into the terminal. Fedora then tries to access the application. Once it discovers that GNOME Tweak is not installed, it will ask you if you would like to install GNOME Tweaks. Enter
Y to approve and enter your password when asked. And you’re done.
That’s it. You’ll have the GNOME Tweaks available in your Fedora system and you can use it to change various additional settings.
I am not going to show the things you can do with GNOME Tweaks because it has already been covered in the past and you may refer to that.
