I’m Joshua, the developer of Turbulence – a new kind of extra for Manjaro ! With the philosophy “Enjoy the simplicity” I created a new tool to post-configure your Manjaro installation called Turbulence. A lot of new changes got made recently, including the merge of Turbulence-Evolution and Turbulence with a nice feature to auto detect what processes you have running and serve you appropriate slides to configure them.
This is a big step in the right direction, and leaves the opportunity for me to add more features.
Here’s a full list of features:
- Provides information about Manjaro
- Process detection method to provide different configuration methods for what process you currently have running
- Allows users to select what home folders they would like to use now in multiple languages
- Allows users to select what theme they would like for KWin (KDE)
- Allows users to select what position they want for Tint 2 (OpenBox)
- Allows users to select what wallpapers they want (KDE/OpenBox)
- Allows users to select what packages they want or don’t want (OpenBox)
- Allows users to access their system settings panel or open manjaro.org in their browser
And here’s a list of my new roadmap:
- Code clean up
- Make all buttons non blocking
- Add more features to configure the Tint 2 panel
- Port the packages page over to the KDE edition
- Add more features to configure Kwin or plasma for KDE
- Start working on making the code more compatible with XFCE
Some screenshots, so you get a feeling for it:
Since it is a new application for Manjaro Linux, I need your help translating it. So get active and use your power to get it native to your language. I recommend to use Qlinguist to translate the strings of Turbulence to your mother tongue.
Also I’m happy for any feedback from you.
