I just really want my EOS good again. Today's update makes my EOS Hera not good / comfortable anymore. Here's the problem:

1. Minimize button is dissappear on some apps like Blender, Inkscape, and Chromium. Even after setting it up on Tweaks Settings.

enter image description here

2. I can't disable dynamic-workspaces anymore. Via command line or via dconf editor. Both didn't work.

*Actually i like dynamic-workspaces, but the fullscreen behaviour is the problem for me. It switching the workspace, also it create an issue to some apps. I hope i can fullscreen several windows in current workspace.

Should i wait for another updates? or there are solution? Thanks

  • I have found solutions for the both points. Can you check does it works for you also?

There is a new update in order to make not only fullscreen but also maximized applications to go to a new space automatically and there is a call for testing on another website. Probably because of this feature the option for switching on and off the dynamic workspaces is removed, I cannot say if it will be changed or not after the next updates, but for the present moment there are some fixes:

1. Buttons layout fix

If you want the buttons to be on the right side, move the semicolon(:) before their names

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'close,minimize,maximize:'

2. An option to change the fullscreen behaviour

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter dynamic-workspaces false

prevents opening a fullscreen app on a new space for me. Replace the false with true on the line above in order to restore the default behaviour.
