Ubuntu "Show Applications" Button

Hi All

Just wondering… why has the “Show Applications” button never been changed to the Ubuntu logo? The same seems to apply to other distro’s too. Does Gnome not allow this? I would have thought that this would stamp a distro’s image to the product.

Yaru has decided to not use the Ubuntu logo as the “Show Applications” button. See https://github.com/ubuntu/yaru/issues/2006

Thanks for the link rs2009. Shame, as the top icon would fit in well.

I recently noticed that RHEL does use a small logo next to the Activities button … Strange that there isn’t one in Fedora … It’s not clear to me whether or not this fits into the GNOME design paradigm when Red Hat, since is using it …

If Red Hat does it then I think we have an excuse. I have reopened https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1707831 to track this.

I second this.

When we try to explain our clients ( mostly newcomers from Windows and mac) , we don’t know how to name it .

We say “9 points” button which is ugly

i too would like to see the 'buntu logo instead of the 9 dots.

Any Ubuntu logo should, in my opinion, always be visible in the ‘top bar’ which is what @vanvugt suggested in bug #1707831.

I agree. Just like with RHEL, to the left of Activities.
