Hans sent us a link to HowtoForge’s guide to installing and using the Ubuntu Tweak utility.

Ubuntu Tweak is a tool that lets you change hidden Ubuntu settings, for example: hide or change the splash screen, show or hide the Computer, Home, Trash, and Network icons, change Metacity, Nautilus, power management, and security settings, etc.

It’s only applicable for the Gnome desktop, but it’s a really convenient tool for tweaking your computer’s splash screen, desktop and hibernation settings. There’s nothing here that you can’t do via other settings management programs or config files, but the interface is simple to use and it collects a lot of Gnome’s system settings in a single application.
