Hello all, new forum member, linux tinkerer for 15 yrs. I have been trying out core 16.1 lately on a macbook air mid 2012.
All is well except... 1 issue i can't seem to overcome. After install or possible reboot, when i initially hit super key i get a clean activities overview. I can search, change desktops etc. Once i ever hit super-a to show all apps continue on then go back later to hit super key to open activities overview, all applications show underneath. If i then search, search results impose on top of all applications. This makes for a hard to read jumbled mess. I have disabled all shortcuts so that super opens zorin menu, alt-a opens all apps, and super-f opens activities overview. Unfortunately, this does not help. Still the jumbled screen of all apps, windows open and search on one screen.
Any ideas of how to remedy this. Zorin seems to be ideal accept for this one deal-breaker that i can't seem to fix. I have done fresh install x 2 with seperate downlods and still the same issues. Thanks so much for any help you might be able to provide, Grace and Peace!
Ps... I have searched high and low online for zorin/ubuntu issues r/t this and have gotten nowhere before posting...
That clarifies things a great deal. It looks like the gnome-extensions in use are both running simultaneously instead of one being closed when the other is launched.
I do not use Gnome as I prefer Zorin OS Lite or another desktop (Zorin OS Cinnamon Desktop). So I have little experience as to the frequency of this action.
Perhaps other regular Gnome Users can check this out and speak up if they experience the same.
You might try resetting it:
dconf reset -f /org/gnome/
This will punch you back to default on all fronts so be warned...
Do you have any extra extensions installed in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions?
There may also be a corruption in the extension. You can try reinstalling it:
Navigate to the Extensions tab and disable all extensions.
Next, test the activities overview and see what is working (If something does nothing, that extension is disabled...) and begin enabling extensions one at a time until the error returns.
Hopefully we can narrow down the culprit this way...
Aravisian, we may be on to something here... Tweaks installed, i tried it right after turning off all extension with same problem, but... After reboot no extensions active, sort of looks like vanilla gnome. I can go back and forth super-a, super for overview with no overlaps as in previous photos. It appears to be working correctly with no extensions active.
So i assume i will re-activate one by one and see when problem reappears. I may not be able to check them all tonight but will definitely have time tomorrow. Thanks so much for your guidance! Will report...
