Shortcut Hide/Show desktop not working anymore


#1

Dear fellows,

after an update (unfortunately, I don’t know when this was installed) I realized, that the keyboard shortcut Super+D is not working anymore.

First, I checked the keyboard shortcuts settings and hit Reset All… without any luck. But then, I checked the command behind that shortcut. It is: /usr/lib/budgie-desktop/plugins/budgie-hcorners/showdesktop - I ran this command in a terminal window and realized the command was gone!

$ /usr/lib/budgie-desktop/plugins/budgie-hcorners/showdesktop
bash: /usr/lib/budgie-desktop/plugins/budgie-hcorners/showdesktop: No such file or directory

I hope this is just a package and/or dependency fail and will be solved by an upcoming update, right? Or maybe there is an solution which addresses my issue, already?

Thanks in advance

/EDIT

I forgot to mention, that I am running Ubuntu Budgie 18.04.1 on my system.

check you have the packages budgie-desktop-environment and budgie-hotcorners-applet installed


#3

Indeed, both packages are installed:

  • budgie-desktop-environment (v0.9ubuntu1)
  • budgie-desktop-hotcorners-applet (v0.4.5+201902031217~ubuntu18.04.1)

ah - I know what the issue is … yeah sorry about that - need a package update to budgie-desktop-environment.

Will put this on my to-do list asap

I’m looking forward to your idea :+1: Thanks

Raised the issue on our github tracker to track & fix https://github.com/UbuntuBudgie/budgie-extras/issues/139

I don’t fully understand. Is it a bigger story to recover the showdesktop command, which was present some weeks ago? Just curious.


#8

Its no big story. Its just trying to find the time. 18.04.2 and 19.04 upcoming freeze date are just preventing doing the patch, testing and release.


#9

This should now be resolved. Just update as usual.

Just updated my system. I can confirm the showdesktop command is back again :+1: and the sun is shining :sunny: Thank you very much :blush:
