Material shell

:slight_smile:

Hello.

I was thinking about giving Material shell a try. Any help on how to install it?

I don't think for this question you need this info, but I'll give it any ways.

One last question. I decided to go for @djwyman solution and download it from chaotic-aur like this:

This is a question for all who'd like to help me with an answer including @smoky

How do I initialize the material shell? I did not see an option at the beginning of the log in page nor did I find it on the programs installed. Maybe I missed it and it has a different name?

Thank you.

It's an extension, so you should be able to enable it in the gnome extensions app. in fact that is what they say to do on their GitHub page.
