Help Layouts Switcher

Hello, I am a beginner in the Linux world and have run into a problem. I formatted my computer and put Manjaro GNOME on it, when I came across a program that came on it, called : Layouts. I chose to use “Tiling”. But when I tried to download a program, my software center had disappeared, I tried to search for the layouts program to return to the previous layout and found myself with the surprise of it disappearing too. Could someone help me?


Hi and welcome to the forum :partying_face:

The option for tiling has not been active for a while now, it depends on the pop-shell and the integration was lacking iirc. What install medium have you used? the last ones I tried do not have the tiling option. There is a material shell option that does a form of tiling.

From the story I take it that the medium was old, and was not updated after install and the action change something, if you have backup of your data and not invested in a lot of changes it seems easier to reinstall then to troubleshoot.

If you want help with this see [HowTo] Request support

Data that would help would be:

And the output of /var/log/pacman.log would show you what the package manager has done (if anything) such as removing the software center / layout switcher.

You are not up to date as the current version of Layouts no longer contains the Tiling option under Settings. Update your mirrors and perform a full update: Pacman-mirrors - Manjaro
