GTweakUI

About

gTweakUI is a UI tweaker for GNOME. It allows you to change a few settings on a per user basis that are otherwise difficult to find for users - such as the splashscreen on login.

It'd be great if someone who knows more than me about ebuilds creation could confirm the above isn't risking breaking anyone's system. It would also help me further in editing and creating other ebuilds: enrique AT gentoo DOT se

If the above disclaimer doesn't scare you off from trying it, then do this:
 mkdir /usr/local/portage/gnome-extra/gtweakui -p
 nano -w /usr/local/portage/gnome-extra/gtweakui/gtweakui-0.4.0.ebuild
 # (paste the above ebuild code in the new file within nano - or whatever texteditor you alternativly prefer to use - and then save and quit)
 ebuild /usr/local/portage/gnome-extra/gtweakui/gtweakui-0.4.0.ebuild digest
 echo "=gnome-extra/gtweakui-0.4.0 ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
 emerge -av gtweakui ## (answer Y and hit enter key if everything seems ok)

Run

To run the gTweakUI Galeon dialog:

gtweakui-galeon

or to run the gtweakui Menus dialog:

gtweakui-menus

or to run the gtweakui Nautilus dialog:

gtweakui-nautilus

or to run the gtweakui Session dialog:

gtweakui-session

Now get your GNOME like you want it to be.
