Regolith is composed of several existing open-source projects plus some additional custom packages. Sometimes when a bug is found in Regolith, actually it’s a bug in an upstream project. Determining the source of bugs is a first step in getting them fixed.
Most of Regolith’s GNOME support comes from the
gnome-flashback project. To run a
gnome-flashback session, install the session and log back in to your account after selecting that session from the login screen.
- Install the
sudo apt install gnome-session-flashback
- Restart your computer and then select the
GNOME Flashback (Metacity)session as shown here:
- Verify your behavior against Regolith. If the problematic behavior also exists in
gnome-flashbackthen the bug is likely there. If the bug does not exist in the
gnome-flashbackthen it’s likely to be in Regolith.
