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
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
Hello! Sorry to be late to the party, but what is this applet called? I can’t find it in my Ubuntu Budgie installation, and I have the budgie-desktop-env. installed.
just press Alt + S - its preinstalled
Ah… Never figured that! Thanks for the answer.
Another question. Can I somehow make the mouse show it? Eg. so if I drag on the left side of my screen (not only the top corner). I guess I’m looking for something more like GridMove on Windows 10. Where I can have a set och default places to drag my screen and it will make it that size.
More like this set-up (each number represent an area to drag the window and make it into a size)
It reminds me…
Ctrl + Alt + 1-9 ( from numeric pad ) where 7 is for top left corner, 8 for top half, 9 for top right, 6 for right half, 3 for right bottom, aso…
Dear Unity, you had everything needed but people did not want to see it.
Indeed. Such capability is in 19.04 and later
Wait, those shortscuts are in 19.04 and forward? Because then in theory it should be possible I guess to make some kind of plugin to use those “grids”
Yes - that’s the shuffler_nogui part as described here in the README
So - sure it would be possible to create a wrapper around shuffler. I’ll leave that to an enterprising dev.
I’m struggling a bit with this plugin. I changed the shortcut and I tried keeping the original shortcut, but it fails to open a lot. It just does nothing until I have pressed the key more than ten times. Because I wanted to install gTile and try that (I also think it works a bit snappier), but I can’t install gnome shell extensions on Budgie. Or at least I haven’t figured out a way to do it. Anyone else have this problem?
