  • Once again Ubuntu Budgie continues to take the lead to ensure budgie desktop remains compatible with the latest GNOME stack. This time around the development has been fairly smooth and it should be straightforward for all distros uplifting to GNOME 3.36.

  • Budgie Desktop Settings: Budgie Desktop Settings Fonts
  • Budgie 10.5.1 introduces hinting and anti-aliasing settings in the Fonts section of Budgie Desktop Settings, allowing you even more flexibility with how document, interface, monospace, and window title fonts render:
  • For font hinting, you can choose between a range of options ranging from no font hinting to full font hinting.
  • For antialiasing, you can choose between subpixel antialiasing, standard grayscale, and no antialiasing.If you have a single window open for a given IconButton in the Icon Tasklist, the tooltip when you hover over is shown.

Ubuntu Budgie Experience:

  • System Tray applet now dropped as a default
  • At the same time – added the ability to not run network-manager applet – this ensures the buggy system tray icon no longer appears
  • CTRL+ALT+left/right swaps workspaces without a workspace indicator in the middle of the screen.
  • Event alerts sounds are disabled by default now – if you want alert sounds choose the alert noise you want and sound level in Settings – Sound
  • HiDPI (4K) support for Budgie applets (both in built-in and third-party) and their popup functionality
  • Fix for keyboard shortcuts mysteriously going missing
  • Fix for multimonitors to stop windows overlapping the top-bar when maximised
  • Switch from qt5-style-plugins to qt5ct for QT app styling – apps such as vlc.
  • QT5 apps such as VLC also have styling options built in as well.
  • Moka based icons revised to capture GNOME 3.32/3.34 and 3.36 changes
  • Support large global menu in budgie-desktop panel
  • Better lock screen styling – buttons are now flat and match the lock screen dialog
