#StackBounty: #20.04 #graphics #kde #intel-graphics #desktop-environments Highlight Diagonal Tears with Intel Graphics (Ubuntu 20.04)

Bounty: 100

Problem:

Despite reinstalling everything I can think of I am having an issue with certain highlights tearing. This issue has been present for me in both GNOME and KDE.

It seems to appear comistently while using Firefox and KDE Plasma 5 desktop, however I have seen it happen in other applications. I’m not the most experienced with Linux so I am thankful for any help.

I believe this person is having the same issue


Examples:

Firefox
Application Launcher
Menu

#StackBounty: #wireless #20.04 #usb #desktop-environments WI-FI adapter is not detected after reboot unless it is replugged-in

Bounty: 250

I am USING Ubuntu 20.04 Fresh install and the only significant change I have made (except installing the drivers for the said adapter) is to disable "Wake on X" settings on BIOS since it caused the PC to reboot instead of shutting down. But even without this, 9 out of 10 cases, I do not see the wireless icon when I turn on the PC unless I take it out and plug it back in.
Is there a solution to this, where I can keep it plugged in at the back of the case and not bother at all?

#StackBounty: #lubuntu #kubuntu #19.04 #desktop-environments #19.10 How to get Ubuntu-desktop back after once removing it completely

Bounty: 50

I have tried to experiment with different desktop environments. I completely removed Ubuntu-desktop-environment and installed Kubuntu-desktop. Then after some days I installed Lubuntu-dektop.

Now, I want to get back to my Ubuntu-desktop. How to do it?

Thanks.

Update:
I have done the following:

sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop

sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

And as a result I have got many options to login with. But When I choose Ubuntu after reconfiguring into lightdm it says insufficient memory.

I also tried reconfiguring to gdm and after reboot it does not show previous users but shows a welcome screen to create a new user. After I make a new user, I login just to get a black screen.

#StackBounty: #desktop-environments #customization #budgie Change raven menu's power strip options under Budgie

Bounty: 50

I’d like to customize budgie a bit further than what’s made available in it’s “Budgie Desktop Settings”

For the “Raven” tab we can enable the “Power Strip” but the name is quite false advertizing because out of the three buttons it adds, none are “power”-related, rather they are “session”-related :

  • Settings (this one strikes me as even less on topic but I guess it’s inspired by vanilla ubuntu)
  • Lock
  • and Logout

I’d like to at the very least have “power”. but ideally I’d like to have more options such as restart, why not the same functionality as ubuntu-vanilla where, upon holding alt “power” is replaced with “sleep”.

so ideally :

  • Settings
  • Lock
  • Hibernate
  • and Shutdown

So basically are there customizable files that aren’t replaced by an update that I could modify to attain this affect, or some plugin that I could install?
