How To Install And Configure Pop Shell On Non Pop Os Linux Distros · The Kernal
For the longest time, I used tiling window managers. They are super snappy, easy to learn, and just worked a lot better for my workflow. And yet, loving GNOME, LibAdwiata, and GTK, I finally decided to make the switch, especially since I have better hardware. One of the things that has made the transition especially easy, is Pop-Shell. Pop-Shell, is a GNOME extension working on every current GNOME version, designed for Pop_OS!, that features tiling windows, and a Rofi-like application menu that can help mimic the feel of traditional tiling window managers. And so, because not everyone wants to use Pop_OS!, I am going to show you how you can not only install the Pop-Shell extension, but install and configure the launcher, so that you can have the amazing experience with tiling on GNOME.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
