Thus I have written a simple budgie applet that is intended to replace either the simple menu or the default budgie menu in 20.04 that launches lightpad - so you can invoke the fullscreen launcher via the Super key or pressing the applet panel icon.
Logout and login and replace the current menu with the “Lightpad” applet
Support arrangements. For issues about the actual fullscreen launcher please raise to https://github.com/libredeb/lightpad - I’m sure any help to enhance the launcher would be most welcome via that project - fork and fix!
Dynamic background should be in v0.0.7 of lightpad which we are using. So please raise a query upstream on the lightpad project.
The lag issue I have raised on the lightpad issue tracker since I believe lightpad should be initialised on login and start in the background. Lightpad should never close - just hide when pressing “escape”. https://github.com/libredeb/lightpad/issues/8
Yes, the image fix seems to have worked. Thanks for raising the lag issue, that seems like a suitable solution.
Found a new issue, I think this one is definitely lightpad. Currently I have chromium open taking up the whole screen (not F11 full screen). When I hit super, lightpad opens, only behind chromium. So, when I minimise chromium it will appear.
Just out of curiosity, what are the technical differences between building the app yourself and installing through the ppa?
