I’m experiencing some difficulty understanding the “Tiling” feature in the Manjaro Linux GNOME Desktop Environment. After enabling it using the Layout-Switcher, I’ve seen no discernible changes in my desktop layout or window management or any other aspect of the interface. This is the case even after logging out and back in, restarting my system, and clicking on “Reload Desktop” in the Layout-Switcher.
I’ve reviewed several resources, including the official Manjaro, Arch Linux, and GNOME websites, but couldn’t find clear instructions about the tiling environment. I also found a Manjaro forum post discussing the implementation of the tiling feature, but it didn’t provide a detailed explanation of its usage.
While exploring further, I came across an older post suggesting that Material Shell might need to be enabled for the tiling feature to work. However, there’s no mention of Material Shell in the Layout-Switcher, and I’m not sure whether I want to enable it.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? How can I use the “Tiling” feature? Is the tiling option always tied to Material Shell, or is it supposed to function independently? I would greatly appreciate any help or guidance you could provide.
Is it accurate to say that the Layout Switcher is essentially a shortcut to toggle the respective GNOME Shell Extensions on and off?
Additionally - since I dislike asking unnecessary questions - I’d like to know if I could have found this information by myself and just overlooked it. Is this written somewhere on the forum, wiki, docs or the mini-tutorials?
Again, thank you for your help. It is greatly appreciated!
