Budgie Desktop 10.5.3 has now been uploaded into Impish Proposed.

Remember proposed is the staging repo for all sorts of things - and the GNOME 41 transition is underway - so have fun - but beware if enabling proposed and upgrading.


Yeah - definitely steer away from the proposed repo - Changes in the GNOME40 stack break budgie and related apps quite badly.

v0.7.0 of budgie-indicator-applet has been released. This has a fix (hopefully) for any appindicator that used to display big/huge icons

Needs testing with any and all appindicators to ensure no further display regressions.

Back for yet another development cycle. :sweat_smile:

The 21.10 versions of QogirBudgie GTK theme, Pocillo GTK Theme and Pocillo icons are now available in the 21.10 repo.

The themes are GTK+4 compliant … not that there is too many GTK+4 apps yet … but in the future…

So usual good observations and testing needed to ensure compatibility…

Pleased to offer a nice small applet from a new independent budgie developer


Called CPUTemp - it displays the temperature of a number of sensors.

Lookout for additional options in the applet panel budgie-desktop-settings.

Welcome needs to be updated - but it can be now installed on focal/groovy/hirsute for both intel/amd and raspberry pi

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntubudgie/backports
sudo apt install budgie-cputemp-applet

logout and login and add the CPU Temp applet to your panel

All feedback to upstream GitHub - tarkah/budgie-cputemp-applet: CPU temperature applet for Budgie (especially positive feedback!)

Mojave-gtk-theme has now been updated - this include GNOME 40 / GTK+4 support.

This has been backported to 21.04 - and a package uploaded for impish.

Thanks to contributor Akira (AkiraMiyakoda (Akira Miyakoda) · GitHub) budgie-pixel-saver-applet has now received a number of enhancements:

  • Drag - drop to unmaximise
  • Configurable title theming
  • Updates to ensure work with arc-theme
  • Increase configurable title width to 200px
  • Allow right alignment of title

These changes are now available in 20.04/20.10/21.04 & 21.10


Akira has enhanced the applications-menu applet

Some themes space the category list oddly. We now have a user configurable override (adjust category spacing) in the applet settings allowing you to control the spacing.

Drag and drop to unmaximize is an unvaluable addition! I’ve been suggesting it for a year already (but have no coding skills). It is now almost on par with Unite (Gnome extension) on user-friendliness.

Fantastic job!

Good news - all of the GNOME 40 stack has now migrated to the Release pocket.

This includes budgie-desktop 10.5.3. Todays daily ISO will contain all of this.

Latest stable version with Gtk 4 and GNOME 40 support is now available in impish-proposed

The app Drawing that is the default mini artist based app on our iso is now at the very latest version 0.8.2

Please do test so that we can catch any packaging issues that we inadvertently made.

Alpha 1 of our 21.10 raspberry Pi version of Ubuntu Budgie is now available for testing.


So this has the very latest budgie arm tweak tool as described in the first post.

It has the very latest budgie desktop v10.5.3, the very latest GNOME 40 stack, latest Pocillo & Qogir Gtk theme.

Currently snaps such as budgie-welcome do not work.

Do give this image a try - early testing allows us to resolves things before the final release.

The UB teams 21.10 wallpapers have dropped onto the latest ISO


A post was merged into an existing topic: Plans for 21.10

After a couple of months testing on a VM, I upgraded my main PC to 21.10. All went well, no issues, no major bugs. This is shaping to be another great release.

Time to hunt for some weird bugs! :face_with_monocle:

Hi all

Well we are almost at beta release time in the next few days.

This means writing the release notes.

I am after as many pictures showing off the new and changed capabilities in the first post.

Please do post your pictures here and we will try to incorporate them in the release notes

Ubuntu Budgie 21.10 ARM64. Raspberry 4B 8 GB. Newest updates till 10/05/2021.
Mouse USB-wired. Keyboard USB-wired. Loudspeaker BT-connected. Screen HDMI1 no Speaker.

There is a Problem with Video-Player.
If I start a local Video, it plays 2-5 seconds and then Audio stops, Video freeze, Mouse Cursor freeze.
Same by Playing Video from News-Letter N-TV in Mozilla Firefox 92.0.
Moving Mouse Cursor, the System freeze suddenly during Video playing.

System stops working and can’t shut down because Mouse don’t work.
Hard Power-Off is the only way out!

are you using kms or fkms for the display driver?
