Gain More Control Of Your Ubuntu System With Ubuntu Tweak [Linux]
If you’ve recently installed Ubuntu on your system for the first time, you have probably been busy playing around with it as much as you can. Indeed, the popular Linuxdistribution is fun to mess with and work on, no matter what kind of user you are. However, you may be interested in controlling your system even more to get the absolute most out of it. Terminals have usually been the way to go for things like this, but on Ubuntu you have another choice: Ubuntu Tweak.
About Ubuntu Tweak
Ubuntu Tweak is a fantastic graphical tool to configure all sorts of things on your computer. You can configure lots of tweaks that apply to just your user account, deep admin settings, or run janitorial duties to make your system run more like a freshly installed one. Ubuntu Tweak has been mentioned a few times here at MakeUseOf before (if you’re curious, you can view those articles here, here, and here, among others), but Ubuntu Tweak has been completely redesigned from the ground up since the release of Ubuntu 11.10, so it’s worth taking another look.

At this point, LibreOffice is undoubtedly the top freeware productivity suite on the market and the best alternative to Microsoft Office, as it’s being adopted not only by consumers but also by companies and organizations across the world that are seeking reduced costs without losing feature…
XvoiceXvoice Project on Sourceforge Xvoice-sphinx project Xvoice CVS repository Frequently Asked Questions SourceForge documentation Mailing listsXvoice enables continuous speech dictation and speech control of most X applications. To convert users' speech into text it uses the IBM ViaVoice speech recognition engine, which is distributed separately (see below). When in dictation mode Xvoice passes this text directly to the currently focused X application. When in command mode, Xvoice matches the speech with predefined, user-modifieable, key sequences or commands. For instance "list" would match "ls -l" when commanding the console, so that when the user says "list" "ls -l" will be sent to the console as if the user had typed it. This figure shows a typical session with Xvoice. Recognised (and some rejected) speech can be seen on the right pane. Currently active vocabularies are listed on the left. The application to which commands are being sen…
