    Phoronix: Ubuntu 19.04 Beta Now Available For Testing With Linux 5.0 + GNOME Shell 3.32 Experience

    Ubuntu 19.04 "Disco Dingo" beta images have begun surfacing this evening as the first official test release (sans the generally great daily ISOs) for those wanting to begin testing this next six-month installment of Ubuntu Linux ahead of its official mid-April debut...

Strangely, my Ivy Bridge desktop works great under Intel graphics no matter what.
    I use Wayland but actually it happens even with plain GDM with no session logged in, so whichever GDM uses by default. But after some tests it looked like for whatever reason the laptop was trying to go into hibernation immediately after resume (?????) which made it crash. Since I don't use hibernation I added HandleHibernateKey=ignore to logind.conf. I'm not absolutely sure this is the whole problem and a definitive fix, but so far so good.

    Hmm, no I have not. Maybe I should.

    Unfortunately, the duration of the animation is too long. Also the folding animation is rather ugly, I would much prefer a sliding animation.

    Screw this, I'm too late and can't do any reviews of this anymore

    The focus bug will likely be fixed before release: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...l/+bug/1817924

    I haven't seen Intel only not resume from suspend properly for many years, outside their weird soc/tablet atoms. I use ThinkPads though which have better than average support.
    Honestly I don't think it's the Intel driver. I have done some tests and at the moment the issue seems to be probably with GDM and/or the screen locker.
