Ubuntu power users can able to modify most of the system settings through command line but newbies can’t because it’s bit difficult for them.
Ubunsys is an advanced system tool that allows Ubuntu beginners to modify/change most of the system settings easily without any trouble. It’s Qt-based application that combines the features of a package manager, Tweaks, system upgrade, system cleaner, old kernel removal, and other system configuration tools.
Ubunsys tool is split into four tabs, called Packages, Tweaks, System, and Repair. Packages section we can ignore since most of us familiar with Synaptic tool. However, other three tabs are very useful because most of these action can be done through command line but here we can do through GUI.
