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!
