Budgie Panel: New instance of pinned application is opened as unpinned application
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Dear Solus team,

I just came to notice that when starting new instances of pinned applications are shown as unpinned applictions in the Budgie panel. As a user, my intention would to have the single instances be choosable from only one "logical" instance (as done in Dash2Panel extension in Gnome shell or icons-only taskmanager applet in KDE (or even the default Windows 10 behaviour). When clicking on the logical instance, either window previews of the opened instances should give the user the ability to choose between the instances OR a (3D) window overview shall be displayed (as done in KDE Plasma 5).

Cheers,
Christian

Heya - so ideally Budgie issues need to be reported on GitHub for Budgie - however ...

@cybre had a pull request to add window grouping for Budgie 10.4, but we ran into issues with it. There is a fix for this coming, and it will instead land in Budgie 10.4.1,
adding nice window grouping and dock-like-behaviour

@ikey OK thx for the hint, will do in the future :)

Marking as invalid simply because Budgie issues go to https://github.com/budgie-desktop/budgie-desktop (as per Ikey's comment :))

Just wanted to log in to say that I am currently a Windows user (out of habit, using it since 1998). I have been meaning to switch to Linux for over ten years now (fed up of using Putty to access Linux servers) but was waiting for a distro that just worked, and had a familiar user environment that looked good without getting in the way or re-inventing the wheel (I tried Unity many times, pfff). After Microsoft sent a guy to prison for making Microsoft boot disks I was once again motivated to try out some Linux distros. Stumbled upon Solus. Seems to be by far the best distro I've ever used. Really good work, keep it up! It's really good! I can see myself making the leap soon! I post in here just to say that, yeah, the grouping of icons in the task list would be something important for me. But I understand that you guys are going through everything by priority, so I will be patient. Maybe some day I will know enough to be able to help...

Thanks again,
Bryan

The Icon Tasklist applet now supports window grouping :)
