Without a headerbar, GtkSearchBar/HdySearchBar looks way too much like one...

Finally got around to writing the second half of the LAS talk @alatiera and I gave in November: blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2020/

tl;dr: We can't have a "Linux" platform, but GNOME, KDE, etc. can be platforms.

We could do that by going around the distributions, by having distributions work together, or both, but the status quo is *not* working and we badly need vertical integration.

elementary has proven it's possible, we just need everyone else to learn that lesson :)

Somebody stop me. The worst thing is that it actually works.

🦄 Geary 3.36.0 has been released! 🍃🍃

A new composer, undo everywhere, and finally no more accidentally archiving emails when you press the A key. 😅

A wild experiment. Dragging the window, titlebar context menu and actions like double click all work. The headerbar is just a widget and can be placed anywhere, window corners are masked. The only thing I can't get to work are popovers: they have an extra background somehow.

@haeckerfelix & I have just released gtk-macros, a small crate that gives you a bunch of macros to make GTK & Rust a pleasant experience.

Source code:

Surprise! We can't have a shiny new GNOME release without a shiny new release video!

Special thanks to Chris Rogers, @o0karen0o and @freehive for their hard work.


@jsparber is working on a new user avatar widget with automatic fallback. WIP but already looks dope.

The new HdyAvatar. Custom font size based on the avatar size. So that the initials can be read even on small sizes. Keep in mind that the widget is still work in progress.

The font size isn't set via css, but the font is. If somebody has an elegant idea how to set the font size based on the widget size with pure CSS let me know.

Shortwave Beta 3 is here!

It contains important fixes for problems with song recognition, Google Cast streaming and much more.

It also contains the first translations (polish/turkish).
This will probably be the last beta version. So download and test it intensively!

Make sure to report *any* issue here:

If everything goes fine, I can publish the first stable release very soon. 😍

Flathub build is already in process, should be available soon!

If you haven't installed it yet, you can grab it from here:

@barz :/ afaik it was a different thing, but I don't remember.

@barz it's either dkms or akmod, I never remember which one.

Thankfully I don't have any modules like that, as no nvidia here and no VirtualBox either because Boxes.

Interesting. I didn't think it was possible to have gamepad hot plugging inside Flatpak sandbox without a portal, but apparently a simple `GFileMonitor` for `/dev/input` works.


I'm not even talking about the fact there's Software Updater and there's Updates tab in gnome-software and they are completely different.

Why does Ubuntu have to have 3 (!!!) apps in app grid that open the same dialog on different tabs, AND also have it available from gnome-software?
