    Upon upgrading to 20.04, no applications launch from gnome-shell (except favorites)

    Hi,

    I upgraded to 20.04 (from 19.04) and now when I search for an application and I click on it, it does not launch, nothing happens. If I add the application to my favorites, and click there, then it works. How can I figure out what is wrong and fix it please?

    Thank you,
    Gab

    Welcome.

    I upgraded to 20.04 (from 19.04)
    You couldn't have, not directly anyway.
    Dido you upgraded like 19.04 -> 19.10 -> 20.04? Some other method? Or was it actually a fresh installation?
    If you did install 20.04 from scratch did you kept the older /home?

    Hi,

    Thank you

    yes, you are right, Eoan => 19.10, not 19.04. So I upgraded as in used the software updater.

    Hi,

    I posted here: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread....9#post14033229 and I don't want to crosspost, but I think my original post was not in the correct forum.

    Does someone know how to debug the issue I am having please?

    Thank you,
    Gab

    Can you start applications not already in your Favourites by using terminal commands?

    Desktop icons in the .desktop extension files now need to have a right-click and set the "Allow Launchnig" checkoff before they will work. But I thought the default was to launch a text editor, so that's not "nothing".
