You may remember System76 announcing COSMIC earlier this year with the release of Pop!_OS 21.04:
Since then, I’ve been testing packaging the COSMIC experience for Manjaro. Now with Pop!_OS 21.10 (still in beta), COSMIC is finally compatible with GNOME 40.
It is not yet fully compatible with GNOME 41.
- Switch to the testing or unstable branch
- Install the
pamac install cosmic
- Enable the Cosmic Dock, Pop Cosmic and Pop Shell GNOME Shell Extensions. Optionally enable Cosmic Workspaces if you want a vertical overview.
There are also optional dependencies, be sure and check those if you want the full Pop!_OS experience.
If you want the Pop! Dark Cyan folder color while using
papirus-folders and run the following command.
Replace Papirus-Dark with whichever Papirus variant you might be using:
papirus-folders -t Papirus-Dark -C darkcyan
The Manjaro GNOME logo that appears in the bottom right-hand corner of the first screenshot below is
gnome-shell-extension-background-logo (Background Logo). Thanks to @bogdancovaciu for making the logo.
Cosmic Dock is just a fork of Dash to Dock with some tweaks for COSMIC, you already know how it works.
