Default Stif gear shift

Just recently I noticed that the gear shift is not so smooth as it was. In fact there are times that I must press the clutch pedal with all my strength, all way down, and still the gears are not shifting smoothly as they should.

From my knowledge I understand that the clutch disk is worn and needs to be replaced soon.

For the moment, do you guys know if there is some kind of regulator nut, so I can temporary make the shifting a little smoother?

Don't have a stick shift but fro what I've been reading on the forum, it's the bushings on the shifter linkage that's your problem. Many have replaced the bushings with bugger bushings (don't laugh, that's the real name) and the shifting problems disappear. Here's some older posts on the subject:

That's the question. How can I check the clutch adjustment?
