⚒️ 8 Performance and Usability improvements for Manjaro Linux Deepin

in utopian-io •  last month

In this videos some UI and performance improvements for you Linux Operating system, specially for Manjaro Linux Deepin.

1⏩️ Terminal background blur and opacity

It's mainly an aestetic thing, but it useful because you can see the windows behind the terminal

2⏩️ Background noise cancellation

This is extremely useful because by default the microphone on Linux has a white noise in the background. You hear it in particular when you listen those recordings with earphones

# /etc/pulse/default.pa
...
load-module module-echo-cancel use_master_format=1 aec_method=webrtc aec_args="analog_gain_control=0 digital_gain_control=1" source_name=echoCancel_source sink_name=echoCancel_sink
set-default-source echoCancel_source
set-default-sink echoCancel_sink

3⏩️ 2 finger Horizontal scroll

Open dconf-editor and set this option, it's usefull because you'll have almost free movements with 2 fingers, so let's scroll freely in all the directions!

4⏩️ Multitouch gestures trackpad with libinput-gestures

Fast movements with fingers on the trackpad without using the tool bar

# ~/.config/libinput-gestures.conf
# History back/forward
gesture swipe right  3  xdotool key alt+Right
gesture swipe left 3    xdotool key alt+Left

# Change desktop
gesture swipe right  4  xdotool key ctrl+alt+Right
gesture swipe left 4    xdotool key ctrl+alt+Left
gesture swipe down  4   xdotool key ctrl+Tab
gesture swipe up    4   xdotool key super+Tab

5⏩️ Chrome overlay thin scrollbar

Thinner chrome scrollbars gives you more space for the actual content

6⏩️ More RAM with systemd-swap

Swapfile give you more space to open more apps at the same time

# /etc/systemd/swap.conf
