I tried the tiling layout in manjaro gnome and love the concept, but I have problems using it with the keyboard. The most basic things seem to work, with the exception of the super+s and super+w shortcuts (switching workspaces). The problem seems to be that the hotkey events do not reach the material shell extension, because I can’t set those combinations to any other action in the settings. But I think there are also no native gnome shortcuts set to those, so I am not sure what I am missing here.
Using the website extensions dot gnome dot org I already updated, deleted and reinstalled the extensions, everything with no change of behaviour. Of course, it also means that now I do not use the pre-installed version anymore, in case this is important.
(Of course I can set other shortcuts, but to be honest, using WASD is pretty intuitive and ergonomic.)
My system is pretty much the manjaro gnome default (setup is a few days old), with the following changes:
- Kernel 5.14.0
- reduces crashes of my new computer to almost zero, probably due to my hardware combination or a bug in processor support, not sure. It was the reason I switched to manjaro from the Ubuntu LTS recently.
- I think that’s it.
I am using the german keyboard layout (macintosh), if that’s important. Does anyone have (had) the same problem or an idea what I might be missing?
