After installing Anaconda-Navigator latest version, I found that the tweak tool doesn't open. This is the output that I get :

    Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gnome-tweak-tool", line 24, in <module>
    import gi
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'gi'

I also found this but don't know how to resolve -

Try this:

sudo vim $(which gnome-tweak-tool) (or sudo gedit $(which gnome-tweak-tool) if you prefer)

and delete "env " from the shebang at the first line leaving only #!/usr/bin/python3

Save, and open again.

Can't open gedit with sudo.

Because Wayland wouldn't allow you to run graphical applications with root permission.
