I have recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 Beta and when I open Show Applications window with Super key and try to launch any app, it won't open, although the system shows that the app has been opened. Moreover, I cannot go back to the desktop from Show Applications window, it just keeps "hanging above" all other system windows and apps. Only reboot works.

    I just now upgrade to 20.04 and I'm getting this too. Only solution to get back to the desktop is to log out. This happens in both X and Wayland.

sudo apt update won't solve your problem(as of now), since the package is not updated there.

Installing the latest version from github will solve.

Also, the same issue is addressed here https://github.com/home-sweet-gnome/dash-to-panel/issues/1131

  • I cloned the repo and, come into directory dash-to-panel but was not able to run make install, error: make: *** [Makefile:58: po/ru.mo] Error 127. Could you please help me.

    @TaQuangTu - try sudo make install - try make clean .............. Error 127 means file not found: the path you're using is incorrect. double check that the program is actually in your $PATH, or in this case, the relative path is correct. .............. Therefore, I would suggest ` mkdir dash-to-panel ~/dash-to-panel` cd ~/dash-to-panel make install Sep 12 '20 at 5:51

I think I managed to solve the problem somehow. I tried to play with extensions, namely Dash to Dock and Dash to Panel. I deleted them and then updated to the latest version. Now everything seems to work fine.

  • Yep.. that seems to have been the problem. Now I just need to work out why tracker is broken and what is trying to write a MOD on my desktop but seems to have lost its font (now just in hex blocks). No idea what I installed to do that though :)
