How to Install Pantheon Tweaks, Elementary OS Tweaks for Odin via PPA

Linuxslaves.com - Pantheon Tweaks or formerly Elementary Tweaks is a system settings panel for the Pantheon Desktop. It helps you to customize Elementary OS 6 Odin to better suit your needs and workflows.



Well, for example, change themes, icons, customize the maximize and minimize window buttons, enable double click on file manager, and modify system fonts, force any applications to use dark mode, and so on.


For me, this tweak tool is must have application after installing Elementary OS.


Tweaks Elementary OS with Pantheon Tweaks

Installing Pantheon Tweaks in Elementary OS 6 Odin is easy-peasy. Thanks to the author for providing PPA repository, so we can install it easily wihout touching the source code.


Suggested read :


Open Terminal Window (Win+T), then run the following command to enable PPA :


sudo apt install software-properties-common

Once installed, we can now add this PPA by running these :


sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv c42d52715a84c7d0d02fc740c1d89326b1c71ab9
echo -e "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/philip.scott/pantheon-tweaks/ubuntu focal main\ndeb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/philip.scott/pantheon-tweaks/ubuntu focal main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pantheon-tweaks.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt install pantheon-tweaks

The tweak tool should be listed in System Settings just like Elementary Tweaks as shown in the video below :



For those who want to install the software from source code instead of Personal Package Archive (PPA), run the following commands in the Terminal :


sudo apt install git libswitchboard-2.0-dev elementary-sdk
git clone https://github.com/pantheon-tweaks/pantheon-tweaks.git
cd pantheon-tweaks/
meson build --prefix=/usr
cd build
ninja
sudo ninja install
io.elementary.switchboard
