Call for Testing: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and Ubuntu Flavours

Hi everyone were about 3 weeks away from the Ubuntu 22.04 LTS release. As a community we need to test and find bugs so they can be addressed quickly and efficiently. So below I provided links to daily builds for Ubuntu and all the official Ubuntu flavors. If you have any questions Ubuntu Community Representative @madhens is a good person to ask for help.

Note 1: This is Beta software and there will be bugs so do not run this on any production/daily driver machines of yours. If you have any spare hardware you could install this on would be best.

Note 2: Please open a bug for each issue in Launchpad instead of discussing them here in forum.

Thanks for this! You’re always so helpful with the testing resources! My awesome counterpart @bwyazel is working on our traditional Discourse post - and he’s also got a timely blog piece up about how to write better bug reports he did after chatting with @seb128 from Desktop!

That’s great to hear!

Hey! In the beta-version there are artifacts when any window is being minimized to a tray, on the second or more tries. AMD Ryzen 5 5500U with AMD Renoir graphics.

Please update the system:

sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade

and reboot. Then if the problem persists, please open a bug by running:

ubuntu-bug gnome-shell

and attach a screenshot or photo of the issue to the new bug.

After updates from yesterday I lost my eth connection.
It was disabled at boot and couln’t connect even after enabling it.
Solved by adding ,except:type:ethernet to unmanaged-devices= in /usr/lib/NetworkManager/conf.d/10-globally-managed-devices.conf

Still trouble with Firefox not using the local Hunspell dictionnaries.
It only provides us with the English one by default.

I just installed Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (beta) on my Dell G15 5511 (Intel core i7 11800H + Nvidia RTX 3060)
When i try to connect my machine to external display (HP Z24nf) via HDMI 2.0 cable the whole system freezes and i can’t do anything except hard reset (by long pressing power button)
(Even if i remove HDMI cable system won’t get back to normal stat)
I hope this bug fix on stable release!

@saeed-pooyanfar: That sounds like bug 1964037.

@everyone: Please report bugs using the ubuntu-bug command or directly in Launchpad, not here.

QA Test:
I just tested Ubuntu 22.04
Install (entire disk with ZFS) in Ubuntu Desktop
amd64 in Jammy Daily Build 2022/04/14.
ZFS package is not installed Ubuntu Daily Build 2022/04/14
Apport would not collect data. Just a missing package.

I found these bugs on my install of Ubuntu 22.04 (gnome/ubuntu-desktop, updated to 14/4).

  1. When Ubuntu dock is set to autohide (in hidden state) and you right-click an icon to access its menu, the dock hides and the menu of the app changes position when you click it (leading to miss clicks), making that function unusable on autohide.

  2. If you want to remove an app from Gnome Software, it shows an error saying “couldn’t remove App, no packages to remove”. Also, the update on reboot/shutdown feature is available on Gnome Software but not on Ubuntu’s update app (does the Ubuntu update app, update flatpaks or app images?)

Please report bugs using the ubuntu-bug command or directly in Launchpad, not here.

Is there progress with Mozilla in improving Firefox’s startup speed & overall performance?

I would, but Launchpad is a labyrinth and i can’t figure out how to report a bug manually, and the ubuntu-bug tool doesn’t detect those as bugs.
Going directly to irc would be a good choice?

Every bug has to be filed on Launchpad, there the bugs are tracked and processed. If you need help, there is a help page out there:
