As you’re probably aware, elementary OS Freya beta 1 was released today. Unfortunately one of the most popular applications, Elementary Tweaks doesn’t work out of the box in Freya. The good news is that it’s not that difficultÂ to make it work.Â I’ll describe three methods.
Method 1 (recommended)
There’s a new version of Elementary Tweaks by a new maintainer. This version is optimized for Freya, so this is the recommended one.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks
A new PPA is available which has a patched version of the old Elementary Tweaks thatÂ works on Freya. Run the following commands in Terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bmeznarsic/tweaks-freya sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks
This method is about using the official Elementary Tweaks PPA and doing some manual edits in order to make it work.
#1 Install elementary-tweaks if you havenât yet
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:versable/elementary-tweaks-isis sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks
#2 Edit org.gnome.desktop.interface
[x] visit the â/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemasâ directory
sudo pantheon-files /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
[x] open âorg.gnome.desktop.interfaceâ with scratch
[x] paste the following anywhere betweenÂ <schema></schema>Â –
<key type="b" name="ubuntu-overlay-scrollbars"> <default>true</default> <summary>Meow</summary> <description>lol</description> </key>
[x] save it (duh!)
#4 Delete deconf database
sudo rm ~/.config/dconf/user
#5 Finally restart and youâre good to go!

[_LOG_LEVEL_WARN 01:50:23.306243] [GLib-GIO] Settings schema âorg.gnome.desktop.interfaceâ does not contain a key named âubuntu-overlay-scrollbarsâ
If you add the key âubuntu-overlay-scrollbarsâ to the file org.gnome.desktop.interface under /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas, recompile everything by using glib-compile-schemas, then rename or delete your dconf database under ~/.config/dconf/user and finally restart your computer, elementary tweaks will work.
Note that any changes you have made in dconf editor wonât stick once you rename / delete the dconf database. If itâs worth it, you can go into all of the dconf schema files and modify everything to your liking. then following the same process as I mentioned before, everything will be set once you restart.
