Egmde is available from the snap store
I’ve been exploring the possibility of running a Mir desktop shell as a snap and using egmde as a test case.
This is a work-in-progress
I’ve found there are some, as yet unresolved issues making this a confined snap, but have made the current version available on the snap store.
This is a “classic” snap that only works on Ubuntu 18.04LTS.
Installing from the snap store
sudo snap install --classic --beta egmde
Run as an app on your X11 based desktop
snap run egmde
Run as desktop session
Log out and select “egmde” session when logging back in.
This is an experiment, not a production deployment. Egmde is not a fully functional shell. X11 based applications will not work.
seems to work fine on Kubuntu 18.04
Qt apps seems to work fine <3
Really happy to have an easy way to use egmde! Currently testing it!
doesn’t work in ubuntu 18.04 with nvidia graphics.
The Mir team is aware of problems on Nvidia: https://github.com/MirServer/mir/pull/415 we aim to have it fixed soon.
Replying from egmde using Epiphany browser!
Just tried it with daily apps, it seems to work fine
Just managed to get Cairo dock fully working!
the only problem is the position on the screen, I made some change in the settings to make it visible
It shouldn’t be hard for a developer to add a rule to place it usefully. How’s your C++?
