ubuntuSince Ubuntu introduced Unity many users were complaining about its lack of customization. Here comes MyUnity, a new tool for tweaking and customizing your Unity desktop. This tool provides full customization of Unity features, including the Unity Launcher, Dash, Panel, Desk and Font, through a Graphical User Interface (GUI). MyUnity will be included by default on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) repositories. However those of you who are using Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) and 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) may install it like this.

Open a terminal and type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:myunity/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install myunity

Now you can launch MyUnity from Dash.

Those are the main features of MyUnity 2.0

  • Ability to resize the Unity Launcher;
  • Ability to show devices on the Unity Launcher;
  • Ability to adjust the transparency of the Unity Launcher;
  • Ability to change behavior of the Unity Launcher;
