The code is as follows:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:evolve-os/ppa

Copy code

The code is as follows:

be careful

This is an active development version, and some main functions may not be particularly perfect, such as: no network manager, no volume control component (you can use keyboard control), no notification system, and unable to lock the app to the taskbar.

There is a temporary solution to disable the overlay scroll bar: set another default theme, and then exit the current session from the terminal:


Copy code

The code is as follows:

$ gnome-session-quit

Hi, now we have successfully installed the lightweight budgie desktop environment on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Budgie desktop is currently in the process of development, so there are many missing functions at present. Although it is based on gnome gtk3, it is not completely replicated. Budgie is completely implemented from scratch. Its design is elegant and is constantly improving. If you have any questions or comments, please post them in the comment box below. Wish you like budgie desktop 0.8.
