QoL Suggestions

Tue Jan 30, 2018 4:41 pm

From many distro's this one is the one I'm loving more. Not properly being a newcomer to the world of Linux but a noob in terms of coding and what not, I find SolusOS very elegant, simple and familiar, and the transition from Windows is almost unnoticeable.

Here are some ideas/suggestions that I would like to see in the future:

  • Add luminosity/brightness bar slider to the Raven Control Center (as sound has it)
  • Able to change mouse sensitivity typing a number along with the slider (example: moving the slider we'll see the number increase /decrease and fine tuning)
      • Add check box to tick or untick mouse acceleration
      • When cycle between screens, be able to see what's selected (Monitor Only, Duplicated, Extended, External only)
      • Add a EQ that works! - Using qpaeq turns out very bad results with external sound card using the same frequencies as soundcard software
      • Option to disable mouse hovering once we click in the launcher (More often than not mouse picks the folder that is aside from the launcher and menu closes)
      • Option to customize clock. Adding week day and date alongside the clock (ex. Thursday, 30 of January 15:37 or 30 of January, 15:37)
      • Show desktop option

        Most of these are nit-picky suggestions but you never know if some are really helpful or not so better say them all than nothing ;)

          These are reasonable suggesting here.

          I always look for workarounds until these suggestions happen.

          I did notice this in the Settings > Display

          Mouse Settings

          https://solus-project.com/articles/conf ... uchpad/en/

          Duel Monitors

          Can't suggest anything here. Since I'm a one type of monitor guy.

          EQ

          PulseEffects which look promising.

          Disable mouse hovering

          I was a little lost what you was looking for in this one.

          clock (ex. Thursday, 30 of January 15:37)

          Run this in the terminal

          gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface clock-show-date true

          It's close

          To get back if you didn't like it.

          gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface clock-show-date false

          You still can customize time and date with dconf Editor to your liking.

          Show desktop option

          Show Desktop Applet! Budgie Settings > Bottom Panel > (+) Add > Show Desktop Button.

          To change the right-click menu (Desktop). Need to play around with the nautilus-actions-config-tool. Which I will soon.
