Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Unsettings is a configuration tool for Unity that allows the users to change the Unity settings, like GTK themes, window manager, icons, cursors, switch off the global menu and the overlay scrollbars for the current user. Also, the users can export their settings in the JSON format and back them up, on a future installation or a new system.
The latest version available is Unsettings 0.09, which has been released a while ago, coming with the below changes:
- Added support for Ubuntu 14.04 “Trusty Tahr” and later (including Ubuntu 14.10 “Utopic Unicorn”)
- Removed support for Ubuntu 11.10 “Oneiric Ocelot” and older
