Can you solve how we should switch from the ugly gnome-screensaver lock screen and reuse the beautiful LightDM login screen as the locker too? Answers on the Github issue page please!

  • Ubuntu Budgie Bug Busters

launchpad

We need your help! As the community grows we will have new members that need a little bit of help to get where they want to with their shiny new Budgie desktop.

If you’ve helped out on Ask Ubuntu/Unix & Linux stackexchanges and/or Ubuntu Forums then you already know how to tease out that extra bit of information to help someone to resolve their issue. Even if you haven’t but want to help out, this is an easy way to join in.

So, please put your hand-up and become a member of the budgie-remix bug busters team. Just login to your Launchpad account, visit our bug busters team page and click “Join the team”.

Many thanks!

  • Forthcoming Opportunities

volunteer

More opportunities exist to help out budgie-remix. If these sound interesting to you, please put your hand up. We would love to have you on-board as part of the development team. We will expand on these in the next few weeks, so remember to keep checking out our Google+ community page.

  • A small C based patch is required to allow us to show budgie-remix logo in the system Details screen. At the moment, it is hard-coded with the Ubuntu GNOME logo.

  • Make Totem beautiful – we need to hide the Ubuntu patch menu in favour of an app-menu.  This will need a C based patch.  Can you fix this bug?

  • A Vala based patch to launch Plank preferences from Raven: This will integrate Plank (if installed) better than the separate preferences menu option at the moment.

  • HTML/CSS/Javascript & Python opportunities exist to further develop our Welcome app

  • Debian packaging: We need help tidying up our existing Debian packages to make them ready for possible inclusion into Debian/Ubuntu

  • Wallpaper competition organizer: Help us get the best wallpapers for Ubuntu Budgie 17.04 release

  • App-Indicator applet: Fancy having a go at enhancing our app-indicator supportenhancing appindicator for budgie-remix and Ubuntu Budgie?

  • Applet to hide/show Rhythmbox when its started.  We need to replace the current obsolete rhythmbox tray-icon with a native budgie-desktop applet.

  • ISO testing: We are coming up to 17.04 releases and we’ll need help testing our ISO images

  • Translators: We will need help translating our Welcome app
  • Add to the budgie-desktop-environment repo a budgie-core metapackage. Basically installs the budgie-desktop, lightdm, lightdm-greeter and gnome-terminal packages, and that’s it. No wallpaper, icons, themes and other bells n’ whistles. This will be the ultimate customizable budgie-remix.
