I added a new applet named
System Monitor . It is the applet that is showing the live bandwidth usage in the bottom right.
To change its preference, I
Left Clicked on it and clicked
Now it does not respond when I click on the bottom panel anywhere. It even does not respond to
Win key which opens the menu.
Is this a bug or a feature?
It’s a bug of sorts.
I also have that same issue with Autostart. Go into the add command and the entire panel becomes as responsive as a rock.
Hmm… I presume you have to close the window dialog before things start working again?
Yes it starts working when I close the window, but it definitely breaks the user experience.
It’s a standard gtk dialog. That’s how gtk dialogs work … short operations that halts the calling app until you finish with it.
I don’t know! why a window will freeze the whole panel?
The panel is just an app.
Strictly speaking yeah that applet should not be opening a gtk dialog but should be using something like a gtk stack pop over.
… but I dont have the bandwidth to rewrite that. Basically change the preferences and close the window.
If you fancy helping fixing it then feel free to fork and help out
This seems a simple task. Which file do I need to edit?
Budgiesysmonitor.py is the budgie applet itself
