Unity tweak tool install is broken

Hi Folks,

Running ubuntu LTS amd64 on a 7 year old HP ENVY SmartTouch notebook (em6na).

I believe Unity is the window manager for ubuntu?

The install for Unity-Tweak-Tool is broken.

Setting up unity-tweak-tool (0.0.7+-0ubuntu6) ...
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/UnityTweakTool/ SyntaxWarning: "is not" with a literal. Did you mean "!="?
  assert id is not -1
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/UnityTweakTool/section/spaghetti/ SyntaxWarning: "is" with a literal. Did you mean "=="?
  self.ui['check_cursor_size'].set_active(True if gsettings.interface.get_int('cursor-size') is 48 else False)
Trying to run it.
The following schema is missing


In order to work properly, Unity Tweak Tool recommends that you install the necessary packages.
What can I do besides wait for someone to fix it?

Not in 20.04 anymore. Starting with 18.04, they changed it back to GNOME.

Unity is a desktop environment. Unless you downloaded your iso from or there was a letter before the u in ubuntu, it only has gnome desktop until you
sudo apt install unity-desktop
In other words, can't use a tweak tool for unity unless you are using unity. That's like trying to use gnome-tweaks if you're using kde desktop, etc.
