Hello, I have been running Ubuntu with “vanilla” GNOME since 18.04. Since this is not an official flavour, what is the best way to QA test this setup for Focal? Until now I have simply been confirming after a base install of the daily desktop or server ISO that I can do the following steps post-install:
# apt update # apt upgrade # apt install gnome-session vanilla-gnome-desktop # update-alternatives --config gdm3.css # reboot
I assume that if this “vanilla” experience is possible, I am not the only person using it. But I am not sure how to contribute toward it working well in the future. For example, I find that if I do not install
vanilla-gnome-desktop retains some of the Ubuntu desktop customizations (like orange instead of blue Activities borders). I am not sure whether or not this is a bug. Is it too late in the release cycle for me to help?
Apologies if this is not a good question or place to ask in advance. I have used Ubuntu on and off since 11.04, but I have never tried to contribute to the project before. I am going to try to test the other flavours while C19 keeps me from going outside. If anything else is particularly useful for Focal please let me know. Thanks to everyone who helps make Focal happen.
