1.) Confity

Confity is a simple tool to help you configure your Ubuntu Unity desktop. There are quite a few options related to Unity Launcher and quicklist.


Download Confity from http://sourceforge.net/projects/confity/. Extract the package and click to run confity.py

2.) Gunity

Another tool to easy tweak unity desktop, it has following features:

  • Adjust the size of the launcher icons
  • Change the panel opacity
  • Change the Launcher hiding animation and visibility
  • Enable or disable blur for Dash

  • Tweak the number of workspaces/rows


Compare to Confity, Gunity doesn’t seem to handle the quicklists.
