How to Install GNOME Tweaks on Fedora Linux

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.)

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.
