Display issue - Solus bar

Wed Jan 10, 2018 11:12 pm

Some apps are displayed weirdly on the Solus bar.

See tresorit (cloud service): https://imgur.com/a/D4bWv. Basically, there is a dark background that surrounds that app in this case, and, if I intelligently hide the bar, the icon of the respective app is still displayed. Happens on both laptops. Does anyone else have this issue?

This also happens with apps that can be installed from the solus repository (e.g. Sayonara music player).

Seems the bug is reported on github too:

https://github.com/budgie-desktop/budgi ... ssues/1292.

Topic can be closed. Will tell my problem there :)

There is also a conflict when installing mate along with budgie. It installs a package that utilises appindicator (which some applications use). These aren't compatible with budgie and will result in them not showing up correctly.

I see. Indeed, I have the package installed (just checked it). Will wait for an upstream fix. Not really bothering me that much atm as I am using a dark Solus bar :).

May not be fixed until budgie 11 (as it works correctly with the right packages installed)...for the best experience, stick to one desktop. The base install of packages will provide the optimal experience

Installing multiple desktops generally makes the experience worse (adding start up applications that aren't relevant, or conflicting packages such as this)
