Maemo Leste is very tweakable/hackable/versatile, this page lists some of the things you could change, hopefully grouped in a meaningful manner.

Prevent autoremoval of downloaded .deb files

The tool 'apt' as an alternative to apt-get uses different configuration. To prevent apt from auto-deleting downloaded .deb packages do this:

echo 'Binary::apt::APT::Keep-Downloaded-Packages "true";' \ > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01keep-debs
GConf Settings

Show current gconf settings

gconftool-2 -R / |less
gconftool -S \* |less

Battery icon

You can change the animation of the charging icon to show the current charge capacity:

gconftool-2 -s /apps/osso/status-area-applet-battery/show_charge_charging -t bool true
[edit] This doesn't do anything for me - clort

Disable screen rotate

You can lock screen orientation to the current (disabling screen rotation) with

gconftool-2 -s  /apps/osso/hildon-desktop/orientation_lock -t bool true

Switch clock display to 24h

gconftool-2 -s /apps/clock/time-format -t bool true

Prevent user rearranging of app menu

gconftool-2 -s /apps/osso/hildon-desktop/key-actions/disable_edit -t bool true

Hide toolbar at bottom of osso-xterm (to get more lines)

gconftool-2 -s  /apps/osso/xterm/toolbar -t bool false
