Help test the "Active Desktop" for 19.04


#62

In that case, I am reinstalling the ppa, until we are asked to uninstall it.Continue to test it. :slight_smile:


#63

I am on Ubuntu 18.10, with the Budgie desktop installed on top, using a Dell Inspiron Laptop.

“killall desktopfolder desktopfolder &” doesn’t change anything: when I delete the one panel, another new one pops up immadiately.

When I right-click on the desktop, there are also no options to show/ hide the panel.

This is the output I get :

(desktopfolder:20507): Gtk-WARNING **: 08:11:52.113: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:1469:66: Using one color stop with linear-gradient() is deprecated.

(desktopfolder:20507): Gtk-WARNING **: 08:11:52.113: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:1488:66: Using one color stop with linear-gradient() is deprecated.

You should see the “Hide Desktop” option when you right click.

The ** (desktopfolder:20507): CRITICAL **: 08:11:53.118: desktop_folder_folder_manager_show_view: assertion ‘self != NULL’ failed looks worrying and is probably the issue here. Please can you raise this upstream https://github.com/spheras/desktopfolder

Suggest include a screenshot of your current desktop.


#65

The option “Hide Desktop” is definitely not there when I right-click on the desktop. I will raise the issue adding a screenshot, as you suggest.


#66

What is the version of the desktopfolder package you have installed?

dpkg -s desktopfolder

It should be something like 1.0.11+201812061046

Also what is the output of:

which desktopfolder

#67

Here are the outputs:

Version: 1.0.11+201812061046~ubuntu18.10.1

/usr/bin/desktopfolder


#68

now I’m very confused why your right-click menu option doesn’t include “Hide Desktop”

I’m running the same package - and it shows it ok.


#69

See for yourself …

I believe you have to restart the computer, or logout and log in. This happens, desktopfolder stops sometimes.
