Install The Newly Released Open-Source Budgie Desktop 10.2.8
The open-source Budgie desktop environment just shipped its latest version, 10.2.8, which ships in the latest release of the Solus project’s Linux distro, Solus 1.2.1. This updated desktop will be packaged for various Linux distros within the upcoming weeks.
Budgie 10.2.8 introduces a handful of new and/or improved panel applets which includes a new Places Indicator to allow for “quick access to a User’s Documents, Downloads, Music, etc. [and] the ability to open, mount, and unmount removable media and network shares”. The desktop also comes along with Intelligent Input Bus (IBUS) support.
With regards to volume, the On-Screen Displays (OSD) for Brightness and Sound in Budgie have had their size increased – which means that they get to benefit from higher resolution iconography.
Among various applet and task-list improvements, including the ability to rearrange apps pinned to the panel by click-dragging on them, a similar interaction model to that found on desktop docks apps like Plank.
If the system you run is Ubuntu 16.10 then you can install an older Budgie release straight from the Ubuntu archives without using a PPA.
