Budgie Desktop 3.0

Install Budgie Desktop 3.0 on Ubuntu 14.04

Budgie Desktop is a lightweight GTK3 desktop session using libmutter and a bottom panel. It’s the default desktop environment for Evolve OS, a new desktop Linux distribution recently released. I have written an article on how to install Evolve OS Alpha 1 with Budgie Desktop on VirtualBox As noted by the author, the reference wayland compositor, Weston, has a few problems that will cause major headaches for budgie: Cannot determine own X and Y position (panel) Cannot actually set X and Y (panel), so will hack Mutter to use gravity, private protocol Wayland doesn’t agree with things like wnck.
