“Material Shell” is an impressive shell extension GNOME Shell

Material Shell

Imagine what GNOME Shell and window Manager i3 and I got married, bought a house and moved in together. And from this Union came offspring called Shell Material .

Shell Material is a promising new extension to GNOME Shell which is currently in beta testing. It replaces the standard window Shell for a unique, keyboard driven, with a focus on mosaics.

If you click the button “ Play” on the demo video below (or click here to view it on Imgur ), you will soon understand why this setting has caused such a stir on reddit:

[GNOME] Material-Shell *Beta* from r/unixporn

Pretty cool, isn’t it?

The developer Material Shell is the user’s Github PapyElGringo, who describes his own creation as “the replacement of shell Material Tiling for Gnome-shell”, which aims “… to simplify and speed up the daily workflow and productivity.”

Try Shell Material themselves

The really good news about this setup particularly nice is that you don’t need to just sit and drool at this: you can download and try it yourself!

I should confess, the extension cannot be installed in a single click, but to run it on my desktop also not difficult, if you ever work with GNOME 3.32.

Just download the extension from Github Shell Material, move the package to the correct location, and then enable the extension using GNOME Tweaks.

If you have installed git , you can perform most of these actions.

Don’t forget to enable the extension using GNOME Tweaks > Extensions > Material Shell .

To make it in the video above, you will need to install Plata GTK Theme and the icon pack Tela.

Some of the keyboard shortcuts you need to know (note how they are comfortable to use with one hand):

  • Super + W to Go in the top work area / category.
  • Super + S move to the bottom workspace / category.
  • Super + A to Focus the window to the left of the current window.
  • Super + D to Focus the window to the right of the current window.
  • Super + Q to Close the current window in focus.
  • Super + [MouseDrag] Move Windows.

Currently in Shell lacks a convenient configuration.
