guiverc added a comment to T119: Dialogue for Lock screen.

Just booted a 20.04 install [dell [optiplex] 780 (c2q-q9400, 8gb, amd/ati cedar radeon hd 5000/6000/7350/8350)] that I hadn't used in awhile (used on for testing & support so should be pretty clean other than screen positioning, plus anything except things I've altered for support-testing positioning). Opening screensaver options and it was set (one) to an uninstalled 'flurry'. On preview it only got black screens with error (uninstalled). I did a apt full-upgrade and when I returned the screensavers were working (flurry on both displays).

guiverc added a comment to T78: Port Redshift From Gtk To Qt.

I added PPA onto 20.04 sony vaio ultrabook (i5-9400u, 4gb, intel haswell-ULT); and installed redshift-qt there (no redshift was installed). This box wasn't updated first and I started play it crashed pretty quickly (problem encountered; nothing in /var/crash/); I'd intended updating whilst I played.... I'll blame the non-upgrading first; though my internet has been flapping (no connection 6-7 times per hour for a ~minute) so maybe it wasn't getting geoclue responses?? Sorry I closed it & rebooted to start again before it occurred to me I should explore (stuck on the no full-upgrade first!)

@hmollercl,

When I refer to "no issues" I mean the icon remains readable (globe outline, red-globe etc), not a "!" or blue-box/diamond....

  • initial play (very early);

My main box (d960): Redshift-qt's panel icon was a blue box/diamond with a light blue icon partially visible, I no longer recall when the "!" got replaced by the blue-box sorry. I can see the package there (in browser) but sudo apt update didn't see it available so I wget & dpkg -i installed on my 20.04 primary box; I used the 'quit' option to have program quit & restarted it. It was back to "!" icon set; operation appears identical & I didn't see any differences (very short play; it'll take days to test properly with color shifting due to time). Maybe it needs a logout/login; test that later...
This is my primary box; very non-standard config & rebooted about once a week

They will be new testcases; the files currently are all local (diffs online were a form of backup, though created at that point as I wanted two to speed creation of the fourth one via copy/paste); I haven't yet done the vm install to verify fourth is good. I don't yet understand the upload steps which is why they're all local - but I'll/we'll get there.
