There is a very helpful gnome shell extension called "unite" that requires xorg-x11-utils. Currently, Solus doesn't have this so I can't install it.

  1. You listed a package from a different operating system, not what specific commands are needed. We already ship a load of x utils, they're in different pages.
  2. unite isn't going to work and isn't supported by me under our GNOME Shell implementation, because we have the AppMenu disabled. See T7930

For the record, the missing dependency is xprop and you can install it with sudo eopkg install xprop. But yeah, like Josh said, it's not going to work because AppMenu is disabled.

Unite works again in GNOME 3.34! You just have to set gsettings set org.gnome.shell show-app-menu true. Thanks @JoshStrobl for implementing this gsettings switch!
