    When will GNOME 40 have the desktop interface for Ubuntu?

    Hello!
    I would like to ask you, as Ubuntu users, when to expect GNOME 40 on Ubuntu.


    I look forward to hearing from you!

    I have no idea about the official g40 release, but if you want it now...

    The Ubuntu Desktop team is working on it, hopefully it'll be in 22.10,

    Update

    Instructions in the above link worked without issue and I am now running gnome 40. Think I'll run it for a while before going back to 20.04.

    I have to use Fedora 34 part of the time, and don't see an advantage to the new gnome shell 40 arrangement - at best, its a draw. I especially miss the dock being visible from the desktop. Maybe Ubuntu will get dash to dock working.

    Yep, I'm not crazy about the new dock either. I do like having the desktops in the app menu.

    Beware, if the same config files are used, they've probably been modified for the gnome4 meanings and could break any earlier Gnome or Gnome-based DE if/when you go back.

    The best practice around trying different DEs is to always use a different login userid for each test until you finally decide on one. This way, the settings laid down by each DE in your HOME won't become incompatible.

    Going between KDE and Gnome-whatever shouldn't matter. I'd say that risk is low. It's a Qt vs GTK+ thing.

    In the old days, before DEs existed, we could mount or HOME directories to all sorts of different Unix-like systems and run almost any Window-Manager, WM, that we liked. Those days seem to be gone, even more so with Ubuntu since Snaps appear to be mandatory in recent Ubuntu Desktops.

    Hello

    I cloned (vbox) my existing install and then added gnome40. So no worries this time.

    I have both gnome and ubuntu session installed in 20.04 and they are a bit different in layout.

    Gnome 40 right now is a gnome session only, I think a ubuntu session will be different.

    Currently running gnome 4 session on Impish 21.10. I did a new OS install on a new drive for testing purposes. It is still immature and have duplicated various reported bugs but posting to this thread from Gnome 4 just the same.
