I’ve gone back to the early days in github and the schema for showtime was ubuntubudgie rather than in solus-project back then. I can only think that you may have been testing out some-sort of dconf dump and load stuff changing paths. Or maybe an old experimental version that has long since been deleted from github.
Anyway - getting back to the original post - is showtime still forgetting its font?
As to gnome-screenshot - thats GNOME itself calculating windows sizes for non GNOME Shell based environments deliberately larger.
Might be resolved by my native screenshot rewrite … assuming I ever find the time to figure out how to sort out area screenshot banding-animations.
That’s normal - basically schema strings get copied into the solus “instance” area - this allows applets to be unique - you can (for most applets) have different schema values for the same applet appearing on different panels
Yeah, good chance the dconf database is borked, especially if it is on use since… 17.04! Deleting (/renaming?) the database, immediately log out/in will fix most likely.
Your settings will be gone though, all back to defaults.
@fossfreedom@Coeur-Noir Pretty sure resetting won’t fix. It restores defaults, but won’t replace a corrupted dconf database. forcing to recreate I am pretty sure will. Even best by removing the database with the help of a startup usb, find ~/.config/dconf of the installed Ubuntu Budgie, delete, or rename the folder if you possibly want to restore if it won’ t work, and restart.
The only problem I have here is the font-size in showtime at boot, on one session. And it happens for a few weeks although I did not do any heavy « operations » on that system meanwhile.
And once again, just log out / log in right after boot is enough to fix the font-size therefore my settings seem available. I can find them in dconf, they don’t change between boots or sessions.
I am ready to believe the dconf database is corrupted but how check it before re-starting my whole DE from zero ?
as @fossfreedom suggested
⋅ I removed Showtime from panel.
⋅ reboot. No showtime on desktop as expected.
⋅ re-put Showtime in panel. To my surprise, my previous setting have been kept ( so not erased from dconf ? )
⋅ reboot. And then OK, expected font-size right at start.
Meanwhile there has been an update from budgie-extra-daily ppa and showtime applet was in the list of updated package… so who knows ?
