Testing 20.04 - only for the most adventurous

14 posts were split to a new topic: Pocillo QT theming and controls

Dropby applet makes a reappearance for 20.04 as a default app. It was previously removed at 19.04 since various people reported panel freezing issues.

We believe this has now been resolved, so just need testing. Stick in usb sticks to your computer and a notification window will appear.

If you are upgrading, then either reset your panel or add dropby via budgie desktop settings panel.

I think Elementary’s panel has more or less solved that problem : it’s transparent but the color of its content ( fonts, icons ) is automatically adjusted regarding the light or dark nature of the background image. How ? I don’t know… but this effect is beautiful.

Maybe some blur under the panel - when transparent - might help ?

Does it mean it is now safe to use Dropby Applet in … 18.04 ?

18.04? Do you mean 20.04?


Where drop by applet does not work any longer for months, see DropBy applet : broken?

So I wonder if it’s fixed in actual LTS.

We have continued to look at 4K support for budgie desktop - both using scaling of 100% and scaling of 200%.

Popover fixes have been made to ensure they appear and work at 200%.

We need 4K owners to dig around budgie desktop to find those areas we haven’t spotted.

Over the years it has been reported that occasionally on logon keyboard shortcuts magically stop working. Logging out and logging in usually resolves this.

So we have looked further and included a patch - its in 18.04 backports and in 20.04. We need testers to confirm if the issue has been resolved … if it isn’t - how frequent is the issue still occurring.

We have had a closer look at issues around people using multiple monitors - some people have reported that when maximising - moving windows to the top - window decorations get hidden partially behind the top-panel.

We need users with multiple monitors whether our proposed fix works for your setup.

I have an error opening tilix today post update. I’ve installed lxterminal to display the error . d-book@dbook-HP:~$ tilix

(tilix:6124): Gtk-WARNING **: 11:15:07.252: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:4188:4: Junk at end of value for min-height

A sync from debian has just been made. That is the cause.

A bug has been already reported in debian


Once it has been resolved in debian then we will get the fix as part of the automatic sync process

Thanks, I’ll use lxterminal if needed until resolved. Gnome terminal included a nautilus extension dependency .

From the bug report - workaround whilst the fix is awaited:

  1. in file /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/com.gexperts.Tilix.gschema.xml at
    line 206 <default>${title}</default>

change to <default>'${title}'</default>

  1. sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

I just received what I think is a related update and noted this error.

Huh strange… i recommend filing a bugreport w/ Ubuntu

Bug reported.

Nice thanks!
Found a typo :stuck_out_tongue:

You said bug bug, lol.
Honestly I have no idea what’s going on, but then it’s good I haven’t taken the leap and switched to 20.04 on my main machine - it’s vital for me to use Tilix and I do on a regular basis :stuck_out_tongue:

I was aware of it, but didn’t have time to go back and edit. I wrote bug and had Bug in a copy and paste from the text editor which included the error messages . Now edited . Shrug

Oh okay :stuck_out_tongue: Also you received some responses, you can check…

hello! fresh install of 20.04 today (Dec 19th) and Tilix won’t start. Reinstalled 19.10 - I didn’t realize how much I use Tilix/terminal :slight_smile:
