Meta: GNOME 3.34 Stack Testing and Feedback
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

NOTE: Please read this task in its entirety before commenting or upgrading. Okay maybe not the "Tested" list, you don't have to read that until you're done upgrading.

It's that time of year again and like with the GNOME 3.32 Stack Upgrade process, I'm opening up a task for everyone to report their issues with this specific stack upgrade. It's absolutely important we maintain our focus on reporting issues which are specifically related to this stack upgrade so I can best work to helping validate and resolve these issues. We welcome you to post a comment if an application is suddenly not working and you strongly believe it is the result of the new stack upgrade, such as it suddenly missing libraries or ones which may warrant a rebuild. If necessary, we may request you file a separate issue so we may obtain further detailed information, which we (Core Team, Global Maintainers, Triage Team) can reference in this task.

The objective of this task is to facilitate technical discussions around changes which have occured in the GNOME Stack, such as:

  • Changes to Budgie Desktop (if something is blatantly broken however that is part of budgie-desktop, that should be filed on its dedicated issue tracker)
  • Changes to GNOME Shell
  • GNOME Applications
  • MATE Desktop (may be affected by GNOME Stack Upgrade items such as GTK, libsoup, GLIB, etc)
  • Networking (updated Network Manager)

This testing is being performed on the unstable repository and may also involve or require real-time communication via our development IRC channel. If you are not in IRC, use any supported IRC client that we provide in the repo (e.g. Hexchat, weechat, irssi, Konversation) and look at our Getting Involved Page for connection details.

If you are not on the unstable repository and wish to help test, assuming you understand that the intent of unstable is to be the place where we break stuff and operate under the assumption you check IRC to know when not to update, you can run the below mentioned command to switch to the unstable repository:

sudo eopkg ar Solus https://mirrors.rit.edu/solus/packages/unstable/eopkg-index.xml.xz

Upgrading Properly

Do not run any commands until you fully read this section. Thank you.

I cannot stress enough the importance of ensuring you upgrade properly and fully. If you are not on unstable already, you should fully upgrade your system by opting in to every package update available via the Software Center or running sudo eopkg up then reboot before switching over to unstable.

If you are on the unstable repository, likewise perform a full upgrade via either the Software Center or the Terminal.

If you do it via the Terminal, it is requested that you write down (whether on a notebook, in a text editor, etc.) which usysconf trigger runs at the end of your upgrade (you know when a package gets updated and it does something like "Updating font cache" or "Compile glib-schemas", etc.). This may be one of the most important things that a tester can provide me at this moment in time (via a comment in this task), as I want to ensure that all the expected triggers are being run as otherwise that may result in unsuccessful upgrade. I am hopeful you will see at least one of the following triggers:

  • "Compile glib-schemas"
  • "Update GConf schemas" or alternatively "Removing old gconf tree" and "Preparing gconf tree" (you may not this if you don't have anything which ships a gconf tree, like aisleriot, installed)

The reason why this is so important (for Budgie and GNOME users) is that there are specific keys which were moved from gnome-settings-daemon into Mutter. Should not all the expected triggers run, there may be schema related issues that will result in gnome-session failing to load for you.

Should you reboot and fail to either reach login or the desktop of your choice (Budgie or GNOME Shell, it affects both), such as see an "Oh no!" screen, switch to a TTY by doing Ctrl+Alt+F1-9 (as in, F1 through F9, one of them is bound to get you to a TTY), log in using your username and password, and type sudo usysconf run -f then reboot.

In the event you perform a full upgrade, see expected triggers, are able to log into your desktop environment, etc. that is also important information to know, so I get a general consensus on how well current upgrade path is functioning.

If you are using GNOME Shell, be sure to disable any extensions which we do not provide / have enabled out-of-the-box. Otherwise you may have a completely broken GNOME Shell experience, or worse it'll crash and you'll have to go through loads of hoops such as hand modifying dconf key values and nuking some extension contents, etc. It is not my responsibility nor the responsibility of GNOME to ensure those extensions are maintained and updated against newer GNOME Shell APIs. If they break, you'll need to talk to the extension developer.

WARNING: Do not update your extensions via GNOME Tweaks. They'll break ones we ship which are patched and known to function (user-themes, dash-to-dock as examples). I can't emphasize this enough. Literally, there is nothing bolder than this bold!

Known Issues or WIPs

With all that out of the way, I want to bring your attention to several known issues, or items which I'm looking at addressing before our sync (hopefully, looks at Budgie)

Applications

  • GNOME Music: Not sure if it just on my desktop, but it isn't following symlinks and thus not tracking my music. On my laptop where the music contents are in ~/Music it is functioning correctly.
  • Hexchat takes a considerably long time to load if you have it set to skip the network list on startup.

Budgie

Fortunately with Budgie the only derpage I'm seeing is the Tray Icon. Previously, under rare circumstances the icons would glitch out, appear to be stacking on top of each other, not render properly, etc. It appears, at least during my testing, that this is happening more frequently, which is slightly frustrating.

As I'm also seeing this weird rendering artifacts again under GNOME Shell with icons (specifically during wake from suspend however), I'm swaying more towards it being a Mutter issue or somewhere else lower in the stack, however I'm going to be trying to put some bandaids on Budgie to hopefully reduce this. I say bandaids because the responsible code in question is from 2014 and part of a na-manager that has basically seen itself be copy / pasted across a few other desktop environments (Cinnamon, as an example), and unfortunately unravelling that level of technical debt is going to take more time.

GNOME Shell

Please be aware that the below mentioned items may be resolved with patches from GNOME Shell's git, or subsequent work from myself (e.g. AppMenu change). Please be patient as I work towards landing more and more patches into our GNOME Shell. Thank you.

  1. When right-clicking an icon in the "All" applications view, it seems to move you to a different page. This seems to be a problem upstream, no patches currently available to resolve it.
  2. Leaving fullscreen may be problematic. See this issue. I've added a patch for it, hopefully should resolve the issue, but something to be aware of nonetheless.

As with any desktop environment, there wide range of issues with GNOME Shell 3.34. I would advise checking https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues before reporting them to me. If there is a patch and we don't have it yet, I'll get it added.

Deprecations / Held Back

There are very few deprecations this cycle and only one package formally (and permanently) held back.

Deprecations:

  • gnome-pie (not actively developed, no support for newer Vala releases)
  • libdbusmenu-docs and libpeas-docs (just the documentation packages, nobody uses those anyways)
  • spice-up (no support for newer Vala releases)

Held Back:

Issue with hexchat it now takes 25-30s to load. No output is provided in the terminal.
Using Plasma.

Troubleshooting steps taken:
Deleting ~/.config/hexchat
Stop forcing breeze-dark on gtk2/3 (Switched to adwaita)
Checking for broken packages, none were found.

Reproducible on all 3 of my systems 2x Plasma 1x Budgie.

@Harvey Thanks for the report and sorry about Hexchat. Good to hear otherwise that your upgrades have been successful. I'll look into Hexchat and see if @TingPing knows anything about the long loading times πŸ€”

Upgrade went smoothly on a fresh VM. The "Compile glib-schemas" usysconf trigger ran as expected. AppMenu is not present next to Activities on upgrade and can be toggled to enabled using tweaks.

Hexchat starts up normally as long as the network list is not hidden on startup. It starts up instantly again once the network list is set to not hide on start again.

VM environment is using GDM as the display manager.

JoshStrobl added a comment.EditedSep 26 2019, 2:01 AM

Yea I'm able to reproduce the issue with Hexchat, I'll see about moving us over to get as I'm seeing patches like https://github.com/hexchat/hexchat/commit/a5a727122b66c9003b44fcdc199ad56dbe15a131 that landed since last release.

Edit: Switching us to git didn't fix it for me, not gonna bother pushing that to the repo.

Okay, perfect! I specifically bumped the branding package updates just to hopefully enforce the glib-schema recompilation schema and looks like that worked a charm. Thank you for the comprehensive report @ermo!

Thank you for all the hours you have put into this GNOME 3.34 Stack upgrade Josh! I am very thankful to be able run Solus on my pc's, and really appreciate all the work done, by the core team and everyone else involved. (hope it is ok to put this comment here.)

Thank you for reporting your usysconf trigger contents @Lorien, it's much appreciated.

Regarding the hexchat issue, I've done the following and haven't managed to resolve it yet, will continue to look into it tomorrow (I'm still feeling it from that package push so having a bit of R&R):

  • Checked if it was an issue with newer libgtk-3, it isn't.
  • It isn't an issue with any Hexchat plugins (I've both ran it with --no-plugins as well as building hexchat with none, so it isn't likely an issue with libcanberra, libproxy, python3, lua/luajit, libnotify, etc.)
  • Gutted most of new_ircwindow function in Hexchat itself, mostly out of curiosity sake (like to see if it's related to scrollback, which it wasn't). No dice there either.

Tomorrow I'll be seeing if it is atk related and tinker with hexchat some more, add some debugging bits in so I may get a better idea at what stage it is taking a long time.

A semi-successfull upgrade here.

Was upgrading fully upgraded Gnome 3.32 Stable, with all Gnome Shell extensions disabled, to Gnome 3.34 Unstable.

The upgrade itself was smooth as silk. All triggers ran successfully, as usual, at the end of the upgrade. Laptop boots without a problem into Gnome 3.34. All Gnome Shell extensions remain disabled.

Gnome Shell works, but once the Applications Overview ("All apps") mode is entered - either by hovering mouse pointer in the top-left corner or by pressing Super key - there's no way to exit from it.

Placing mouse cursor again in the top-left corner, pressing Super key again, pressing Esc key - nothing switches Applications Overview mode off.

The only way to close Applications Overview is to restart Gnome Shell with Alt+F2 r.

I use keyboard shortcuts for essential apps - Terminal, Nautilus, Geany, Firefox, Search, Zim, etc. All of them run without a problem. The impossibility to close Applications Overview is the only inconvenience encountered, for now.

The system configuration is:

Not able to reproduce this, but it seems like it may be an issue if you have desktop icons enabled, can you validate that? https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/1686

@algent I removed your comment. I literally explained in the task about the Budgie tray icons, actually read the task contents like requested.

@JoshStrobl Yes, you're absolutely right. Apps Overview wasn't closing becuase I had desktop icons enabled. They were enabled to display mounted volumes on desktop.

Once desktop icons are disabled:

  • either by setting org.gnome.desktop.background.show-desktop-icons to false with dconf-editor
  • or simply with Gnome Tweaks and setting Desktop --> Icons on Desktop --> Show Icons --> Off

Apps Overview closes (exits) normally, as expected, by:

  • hovering mouse pointer in the top-left corner
  • pressing Super
  • pressing Esc

Briefly. It's currently possible to have only one of two featurs - either working Apps Overview or desktop icons, but not both at the same time.

Thank you

I've just tested all of the Universal Access options and they work fine, except for Mouse Keys, where I'm not moving the visible mouse cursor, but an invisible cursor, i.e. the visible cursor stays at the same place, but the selection moves.
This could be an issue related to virtualization though, since I'm testing in a VM (after all my system goes bork when I update fully, due to the Nvidia kernel 5.3.1 bug :) )
Maybe someone else can test the Mouse Keys option to make sure it works on actual hardware. (turn the option on, then move your mouse cursor with the numpad keys 4,8,6,2 while numpad is turned off)

Oh yeah, the usysconf triggers that ran:

@Staudey I test Gnome 3.34 on bare metal. Just checked Universal Access --> Mouse Keys you're asking about.

Mouse pointer behaves as expected - it moves with 4, 8, 6, 2 keys on numeric keypad. Though ve-e-ery slowly. The pointers "sees" and reacts to links, input fields, window controls. Everything works fine.

@just Perfect, thank you. Then all of Universal Access works after all.

So found a big problem, not sure what info/logs you guys might need, but I used Gnome Twitch and stream and chatted on a random Battlefield channel for about 10 minutes. Then the video freezes, so I close the app and try again. Videos on Twitch still don't work, it just shows the first frame of a video. Then I go to Youtube. Can't play a video. I go to Netflix, can't play a video. So I think something that relies on all these breaks or something. My internet connection during all these videos was at least 30MBp/s so hope this bug can maybe be traced or replicated.

Tested "bookworm".
I get only two warning on terminal:

[WARNING 20:11:05.166300] [GLib] Invalid file descriptor.
[WARNING 20:11:05.616153] [GLib] Invalid file descriptor.

Details of test:

  • Opened two ebooks.
  • Increased font size
  • Switched profiles
  • Aligned left and right
  • Increased and decreased width
  • Used bookmark
  • Used all options on Preferences.
  • Made some anonations

To me is working fine.

Tested Vocal & Gnome Twitch which i have used in the past, both work as they should, cant find any issues that i have not seen before.

Vocal - added various feeds, played podcasts, tried 95% of the features. tried different preference settings.

Gnome Twitch - added favorites, used docked & undocked chat, navigated around, watched random streams, tried different preference settings. Can only get the gstreamer clutter player backend to work reliably (same with stable repo) Opacity in undocked chat is not working, but it is the same using stable & unstable repo.

It's not frequent, but it has happened about 5 times now since yesterday's unstable upgrade. My system randomly hangs/freezes for about 2-5 seconds, but it happens randomly, like when trying to move tabs in Chrome, or opening the Dash to Dock, or watching a video on Youtube. I wish I could replicate it, but I'm not sure how yet. Nonetheless, if anyone else is experiencing the same let us know.

...Then I go to Youtube. Can't play a video..

@Scotty_Trees Can't confirm that.

I'm not a video addict by no mean. For the sake of testing, started to play random YouTube tracks in Firefox about half an hour ago. YouTube behaves nicely and continues to happily play the video without freezes or interrupts.

Well it's not related to when I just play videos specifically, it's a bit more random than that. Something similar happened during the Gnome 3.32 stack upgrade last time, but that time the effect was a lot worse. If I remember correctly Gnome-Shell was the culprit that time which Josh and I worked through to get it working again. (edit-he did all the work, i was just a simple tester!) If we had a wider testing pool, I do wonder if this might be more of a common thing, but let's hope not.

There are issues around default device selection that are the result of the pulseaudio 13 upgrade, I'll be reverting that. Not entirely sure if it'll resolve the volume selection issue, I'll have to take a look at the Budgie OSD code for that. But thanks for the report!

Don't know how relevant this is, but just a quick note that I've also seen the "unresponsive GNOME Shell overlay" (can't click or exit) after enabling the Desktop Icons extension NG (DING) from rastersoft.

Disabled it by removing it from the active extensions list with dconf-editor, which fixed the issue.

Seems like they just aren't accounting for DESKTOP type windows, which would include the extension, as it creates a Gtk.Window with the Window Type being DESKTOP: https://gitlab.com/rastersoft/desktop-icons-ng/blob/master/desktopManager.js#L103

DE: Mate 1.22 without Compiz

Earlier this day I switched the repo from Stable to Unstable in Mate and run the upgrade, to test a possible impact of Gnome 3.34 stack. For about 8 hourse since then continue to use Mate 1.22 Unstable.

Upgrade went very smoothly. 118 packages were upgraded. System boots up and logs into Mate without a problem. Mate desktop and all installed apps continue to run without a single issue. There are no breakages, no regressions, no problems at all in 8 hours of testing. Nothing to report. It's the usual Mate, working boringly well.

The final part of Mate 1.22 (without Compiz) upgrade follows:

Tested Bookworm. Downloaded a few free epub format books. Tested the settings, dark mode, import/delete features within the app. Used it for about 30 mins, no crashes, runs pretty good actually. Installed about 10 epub files, no issues. I'd give it a golden seal of approval.

I confirm @just feedback but I tested with still to be landed MATE packages.

just added a comment.EditedSep 28 2019, 6:08 AM

DE: Mate 1.22 with Compiz 0.8.16

  1. Added Compiz and almost all its plugins to Mate Stable
  2. Mate+Compiz Stable full upgrade
  3. Everything works as it should
  4. Mate+Compiz Stable: full system backup
  5. Swithed the repo from Stable to Unstable
  6. Mate+Compiz Unstable full upgrade
  7. Everything works as it should
  8. Mate+Compiz Unstable: full system backup

The number of upgraded packages: 127
Total size of package(s): 173.96 MB

The following Compiz packages were added and tested:

  • compiz
  • ccsm
  • compiz-plugins-extra
  • compiz-plugins-main
  • compizconfig-python
  • libcompizconfig

Multiple and continuous switching from Marco to Compiz and vice versa in the same X session doesn't represent any problem. DE remains stable and fully functional with either of two. Logout-logins or reboots aren't needed.

I tested about 66% of Compiz plugins. They continue to work normally.

Mate and Compiz work as expected. Nothing works better or worse. Nothing is broken. Mate+Compiz .work as if there was no upgrade at all. Nothing to report.

The final part of Mate+Compiz upgrade log:

Found one issue today:
DE: Budgie
Overlay for sound volume (when using media keys) is not displaying volume level but instead displays empty bar.

Mind testing with this package and see if it helps?

@kyrios123 this didn't help, still having this problem with Budgie OSD for volume. Tried downgrade of pulseaudio, tried package that is currently in unstable, and tried your package. Same result for all three packages.
@JoshStrobl I don't think pulseaudio is what is causing it for me, it must be something else from GNOME stack upgrade.

For the sake of clarification for others, though you already know from IRC, this is something I have fixed locally but I need to test it on my laptop (mainly to validate doubles instead of int32s are being used everywhere and not just volume), as well as make some changes to support the current, as well as older versions of gnome-settings-daemon (for those which aren't on the GNOME 3.34 stack but still want new Budgie, like those on LTS releases, because I care about all Budgie users :D).

I have some strange problems with my pc. There is no window to enter user password to resume working.
This is the fourth time that is happening since update.

This is my configuration on settings:

@chax OSDs are now fixed as of rel 202 for budgie-desktop. Update and reboot and it'll be sorted.

chax added a comment.Sep 30 2019, 2:58 PM

I can confirm that OSD now displays correctly.

I've pushed another update for budgie-desktop to the build server (should be available in unstable within a few minutes of this comment) that should resolve the issue with the system tray icons thanks to a PR from the Ubuntu Budgie folks. Please update and reboot, then perform validation. I've been testing some of my local work and the fix by launching Steam, which previously would have textures from nm-applet behind it.

If the update resolves system trays for you, please comment upstream on our Budgie issue tracker via https://github.com/solus-project/budgie-desktop/issues/1249 so we know that this issue is resolved more broadly and can mark it as resolved. Thanks all you lovely unstable testers!

@JoshStrobl unfortunately the issue is still not resolved for me. Just rebooted, launched Hexchat, Riot and Steam and I get this colourful mess:

Running the new budgie-desktop 10.5 (git-a023c7781435d71e463184124a5cc8b26985d961)

Should I also post this negative result on the Budgie issue tracker?

Yes.

@JoshStrobl i updated to latest budgie-desktop and i can say the fix works for me. Previously, every single boot ended up with tray icons rendered on top of each other, now, i tried three reboots and each time tray icons rendered correctly.

GNOME Logs 3.34.0 (which apparently isn't installed by default in the desktop.gnome component?) works fine.

gnome-pomodoro quits with segmentaion fault after this week's sync

Unable to reproduce locally, it's working fine. Mind providing a backtrace in a separate task?

  1. Install gdb and gnome-pomodoro-dbginfo
  2. Run gdb gnome-pomodoro
  3. Type r to run
  4. When it crashes, type bt for the backtrace
  5. Provide output.

GNOME 3.34 was supposed to add the capability to create folders in the ' Show Applications' view, right? I tried drag and dropping applications to try to create a folder, but it didn't do anything (no folder was created).

Closing this task. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that provided bug reports and worked with me in IRC to uncover and address various issues, namely around GNOME Shell.
