I would report that close issue anyway … looks like a bit of defensive coding should be done.
re: Drawing. Pretty basic stuff, as drawing programs go. It’s a good mark up program, but MyPaint and Krita still have it beat by miles. I like that it has a text option (not in MyPaint) and a limited colour palette (Too much choice for noobs in MyP & Kr)
I’m going to give it a pass until pressure sensitivity for my old Wacom is included. But if you were strictly looking for an MS Paint swap out? … Maybe.
Control Q does need a brief “really?” moment. ALWAYS
Saves/exports as png? Opens jpg, png, and …?
I agree Gimp is too complex for noobs. MyPaint just received an update from 1.2 to 2, updated as a flatpak I believe, but still no text support.
Thanks for the feedback - yeah “ordinary users” is my thought for the target. Sounds like you are most definitely on the artistic end of the spectrum with wacom/gimp and krita knowledge
ha! guilty as charged, but I can’t write code so you’ve got me beat
Yes if you were strictly limited to a mouse, this might be helpful for screenshot markup or drawing word balloons on cat jpgs
None of those cinnamon issues are on my clean install. So its something you have been testing with.
gufw - that is deliberate because the firewall (if installed) does not appear in UB (its hidden on GNOME based desktops for some strange reason) … so we’ve worked around it by providing our own desktop file.
Not sure if you know that already, but you can click on the folder and delete the listed *.desktop files …
Hi should I even have cinnamon control centre in the desktop files?
Ive included below whats been installed along the way should I remove all the cinnamon items?
sudo apt-get remove cinnamon-desktop-environment ?
The only bits of cinnamon UB needs are the translation files … so the cinnamon named packages here https://packages.ubuntu.com/focal/nemo
Previews was not working so I removed it (intending to see if a reinstall would fix) , after a reboot I have lost all Budgie content and desktop is a black screen with mouse cursor only.
Thanks for the report. Yeah, we have been a little overzealous with the dependencies vs recommendations of various packages. This will be fixed in an update today.
Just reinstall the budgie-desktop-environment package again to get back where you were before uninstalling previews.
Now stuck at login with “failed to start session”
Tried reinstalling and got “ubuntu-budgie-desktop is already the latest version”
CTRL+ALT+F3 to switch to a TTY
sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-budgie-desktop budgie-desktop-environment budgie-desktop budgie-core gir1.2-budgie-1.0 libbudgie-plugin0 libbudgie-private0 libbudgietheme0 libraven0
CTRL+ALT+F7 to switch back to the login screen and login again.
Thank you kind Sir.
FYI: Previews still not working.
Need a bit more info - please describe what you are or are not seeing.
Sorry. Alt+Tab shows program icons instead of running previews
Have you enabled previews? Menu - Previews Control
Of course not, that would have made all this completely unnecessary. Insert (face-palm-emoji) here. Thank you.
The two nemo v4.4 packages in budgie-welcome - recommendations (nemo-share, nemo-dropbox) have now been uploaded. These will need testing to confirm all is well.
The 19.10 backports applets have now been uploaded to 20.04 - these will need testing to confirm all is well.
Basically all the applets listed in Menu - Budgie Applets should now be installable.
