The 19th week of the Ubuntu development cycle is about to end with a feature freeze. But before the end of new features and packages addition, Ubuntu 20.04 has included various new features.

If you’re a new Ubuntu user, you must know that you require to install gnome-tweak-tool as Ubuntu still doesn’t provide an option to switch between the themes in the default settings.

You can install the gnome tweak tool by running the command:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install gnome-tweak-tool
