      Hey, the hybrid graphics mode got my attention. Hybrid gpu been a PITA in linux for ever. Ubuntu's PRIME requires full reboot.

        ok - WOW. Just installed this on bare-metals on a gaming laptop

        1 - The tiling mode ... WOW , its like i3 on gaps just out of the box. SRSLY, everyone, youve got to test this out of the box experience.
        2 - Hybrid NVIDIA mode -- don't know what these guys do but i get the lowest discharge rate I ever seen ... 8.26W on a GAMING LAPTOP .

        This is a keeper, no kidding

        congrats pop os teams

          The tiling extension hard-freezes your computer upon login on a Wayland session, be warned.

              Yes.

              Just now got around to installing it on my Ubuntu 20.04 desktop.

                  Always good to see people complaining without posting what's broken. Does it glitch? Does it not even install? Does it consume too much CPU? Are certain apps not behaving well with it? Please clarify.

                    This was less a complain more a warning - for people like me running into new code and trying to compile it even knowing that it was developed in a debian environment.

                    sh build.sh gives some error timeout getting gnome startup service...(parsing some journctl thing) but even without make install it already installed it self. tilling works but not for every window. gaps also dont work.
                    This was a run and try attempt

                    I m just at another computer with native autotilling respectively pop os 20.04 so I can not recall the error message in detail.
