Re: Hot Corners and Expose function = exclusive for Ubuntu Budgie? Or not?

Fri Apr 06, 2018 7:14 pm

I read that as meaning that posts should have some substance in contributing to the discussion on this request for Budgie 11, and not just be a "+1, me too" type thing. Maybe I misunderstood that.

Whatever the case, what that request thread shows is that there were other people who were interested enough to "+1, me too" until that final post.

Therefore it is not that accurate to say that there hasn't been much request for this functionality.

Correct, but that's not what I said at all. I have always been talking about requests for the applets.

Maybe someone here with a more sound technical foundation could give this a shot and give those of us who are really looking for a solution a little workaround tutorial... :mrgreen:
FWIW, I gave this a shot, i.e. I built and installed the budgie-extras repo (https://github.com/UbuntuBudgie/budgie-extras). The extras have a lot of build and run time dependencies, but as long as I kept getting actionable errors, I trudged on.

But when I got to a point where the script that's supposed to trigger exposé (https://github.com/UbuntuBudgie/budgie- ... ews_window) ran without error output, but the exposé itself was just a gray overlay window without any windows in it, I gave up, I don't have enough free time on my hands to dig deeper :) Maybe the extras make some assumptions which are just fundamentally different for Ubuntu and Solus...?

I know OP dismissed skippy-xd as a workaround, but it really works quite well (https://www.reddit.com/r/SolusProject/c ... e/du89dvy/). True, you don't get the hot corners functionality, which I miss sorely, but I've configured Alt+Tab to trigger `skippy-xd --toggle-window-picker` (and I have `skippy-xd --start-daemon` in my autostart apps), and now at least, Alt+Tab gives a more informative overview of open windows compared to the default :)
