“Folder view” Screenlet – Linux alternative to “Fences”

Most of you probably know “Fences”, a program that organizes your cluttered desktop by letting you create and put boxes called “Fences” on your desktop and then you can create multiple fences and put your icons in them. For more info on Fences check out Jacob’s post on Fences. Now i really liked fences when i was using windows once upon a time and i was a little disappointed when i couldn’t find any Linux alternative to Fences BUT, thanks a youtuber named “gotbletu“, this problem has been solved because he found a screenlet called “Folder view” and that’s the same thing as Fences but for Linux. Keep in mind that Fences is still way better than Folder view but i not saying that Folder view is horrible either, as a matter a fact it’s pretty good. Lets begin

Since this is a screenlet you need to install a program called screenlets first which is a widget program, so just get that from Ubuntu software center.

Manjaro Works To Make Calamares A Distribution-Independent Installer

The Arch-based Manjaro crew has been developing Calamares, an open-source installation framework they hope will basically lead to being a universal Linux distribution installer. The Manjaro camp has been developing Calamares as a distribution installer framework they'll be using for Manjaro 0.9+ and they also hope other Linux distributions will adopt it so it can become somewhat of a universal Linux installer so each distribution camp no longer keeps needing to write their own installer.
