    I'd just love Ubuntu to part away from the orange-purple theming.. and to dump snap for flatpack. What else? Did you notice their dark-theming doesn't give you black input boxes (or weird ones where you can't see what you type) in Firefox? Well done! Sorry I have basic needs

        Hi ! Am I missing something ? I gave the daily Ubuntu, the Gnome 3.30 Tumbleweed Opensuse, and an Arch-based live CD a try, all with a Gnome 3.29.x or 3.30 install, and in all 3 cases Gnome Shell felt really sluggish - more than in Ubuntu 18.04 which was worse than in 17.10.

        I think I overlooked something, as many optimizations were brought in the 3.29.x cycle (and more patches were brought by canonical). I tried 2 PCs and 3 GPUs (nouveau, amd, Intel). All are constantly 100% smooth under kwin (not with the nvidia proprietary driver though)... I'd really want to give Gnome another try and stop caring about DEs and just use them

          Why say sorry? Nobody is gonna listen to you anyway. The problem is not what you are asking, the problem is that you really think an entire distro can be tailored around your personal needs and taste and you are using the wrong platform to ask. Good morning!

            Was it the x11 or wayland session? And do you use a second monitor? Wayland session and second monitor can still trigger a bug which makes things very slow.

              Hi ! Single monitor actually... Just opening a single window and activating the dash would crawl with all 3 distros and all 3 GPUs. I guess some were using X11 and some Wayland I have to double check !

                Is this back to Wayland by default like 17.10 ?

                  I'm running the daily build and so far so good, it's much better and more stable than 18.04, which was an absolute disaster for my laptop.

                    jacob : what GPU / driver are you using ? Double checking again... I cannot believe a single window animation would crawl like that on all my setups. I must have overlooked something !
