Window Shuffler


Its not really an applet - but @vlijm has been very creative with a nice GUI method to move/tile windows.

Need some feedback - thoughts?

Demo here - https://youtu.be/X3GM_tMlOs0

How to install and setup is described here https://github.com/UbuntuBudgie/experimental/tree/master/window_shuffler


This has now been added to 18.04. Just update as normal logout and login.

To activate window shuffled press meta-S I.e. Windows key and the S key.

Instructions will be given on first activation.

We would love to get your thoughts. @vlijm FYI


Is it part of the default load?


Yes. Part of the default load


UB Dev Jacob has added a new feature to Window Shuffler

Available sometime over the weekend to 18.04 testers


And the final 18.04 release - full run through of the keyboard and GUI friendly capability


Is this the only way to install it ? I am using 18.04


Make sure you are fully up to date and ensure the package budgie-desktop-environment is installed. That is all you need .


LOL I will try to find if I have that installed (or please let me know how as I am not a Linux Guru yet) and as for the WIndow Shuffler I will try to follow the steps :slight_smile:


I’ll pass on it for now LOL

Will install it one day when there is a " Click here " way to install it or sudo apt install something from the CLI

I am not there yet :slight_smile:


Thanks. Worked for me.
