WOW, never would have found that one.
Do you also know if there is a default keyboard shortcut for to launch terminal? I know I can configure it via Settings > Keyboard myself, but I expected every Linux distribution to have it by default…
I love Manjaro and like Gnome, but there are a bit too many apps to configure stuff:
Tweaks (just to change the applications theme)
But I am happy it is possible via GUI and I can configure most things via a post install script using gsettings.
Sorry but Main Menu has absolutely zero effect on the screenshot I posted: Applications Overview.
Without even changing anything: it is already clear Main menu does not reflect the state of Applications Overview. For example, in my screenshot you see 3 folders. In Main Menu there are lots of folders selected, such as Graphics. But this folder does not appear in Applications Overview, strangely, the items within that folder are shown. But for example Internet is selected in Main menu but it doesn’t show up and even the items within that folder are not shown (such as Firefox).
Also, selecting or deselecting items has zero effect on Applications Overview. Not even after logout/login.
This is after a clean install of Manjaro Gnome.
Now my custom .desktop shortcuts in $HOME/.local/share/applications are all gone because hit the Restore System Configuration button in Main menu.
It seems Main menu is a very dangerous tool. All it really does is add or remove items from that folder. It has zero usecase.
Main question is still open:
How to add/remove items to Gnome Applications Overview?
But my custom .desktop are not gone in this directory after changing them in Main menu. I do not know what do you mean.
Main Menu reads all files .desktop from /usr/share/applications and ~/.local/share/applications and shows all apps in its list. When you create new App in Main Menu but it stores new .desktop in its own directory. I do not know where is this directory.
Do not click Restore System configuration in Main Menu to reset all files .desktop.
