Testing 21.10 - Are you brave enough?

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.

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?

I use kms. Tweak-Tool Budgie ARM Pi Setting 512MB (Display) but default 128MB the same Problem.

ok - please report an issue via

ubuntu-bug linux-raspi

Note - there is an updated linux-raspi kernel in the proposed repo - you should try that as well since it has a bunch of graphics fixes that I can see in the changelog

Have tried that. Proposed-Repo is uptodate yet but Problem is same.

please do file the bug report. thx.

I do. Good by and a nice day.

Have post the bug.
Another User with the same problem had reported it some days before.


I’ve made a real install of budgie impish and budgie-welcome is a blank page
I’ve tried with nvidia drivers or nouveau. Remove ubuntu-budgie-welcome and install it again but with no result

resolve this problem by deleting .local in home folder
