Multi-seat setup with GPU passthrough, part 2

Small post about creating TV seat on integrated graphics cards.

Multi-seat setup with GPU passthrough, part 1

I have decided to upgrade my existing multi-seat setup. Currently I have one main seat where I am doing most work and second seat that I am using for GNOME Flashback testing and sometimes also for watching movies.

The goal is to have 3 seats where one seat can be reused for virtual machine with GPU passthrough and one seat exclusively for TV.

This part will be about my existing setup.

GNOME Flashback 3.37.1 released

New development releases that includes many changes, I expect that there might be some regressions. Please help with testing!

GNOME Flashback 3.36 released

GNOME Flashback was 3.36 released almost two months ago together with GNOME 3.36. It is available in Debian, Ubuntu and possibly other distributions.

GNOME Flashback 3.35.2 released

New development release that adds new system indicators applet and finishes screensaver implementation.

Metacity 3.35.1 released

New development release with improved multi-monitor support.

Added support for new _GTK_WORKAREAS_Dn and _GNOME_WM_STRUT_AREA properties, more information in previous blog post.

Changed default focus window handling - metacity will not move focus to fullscreen window that is on other monitor when opening/closing windows in different monitor.

Better multi-monitor support in GNOME Flashback

GNOME Flashback 3.36 will have better multi-monitor support. Currently due to limitation in existing Extended Window Manager Hints specification it is impossible to have panels between two monitors. The problem is with existing _NET_WM_STRUT, _NET_WM_STRUT_PARTIAL and _NET_WORKAREA properties.

GNOME Panel 3.35.2 released

New development release. This release adds documentation for libgnome-panel library, new prefer-symbolic-icons setting and makes GpImageMenuItem class derivable.

GNOME Panel 3.35.1 released

Today I released GNOME Panel 3.35.1. This is small release that makes new libgnome-panel library public, changes default layout location and fixes crashes in clock module when using wheather locations that does not have timezone information.

GNOME Flashback 3.35.1 released

As you may already know, Nautilus 3.28 removed desktop icons. The reasons for that was very good and I agree with decision they made. You can read Nautilus issue and/or Carlos blog post if you want more information. With today's release GNOME Flashback is bringing back desktop icons.

Desktop functionality is experimental and currently only "Auto arrange icons" placement mode is implemented. If you use desktop icons, please consider testing new release. GNOME Flashback 3.35.1 should work with GNOME 3.34.0 or newer releases. Please note that desktop icons has runtime dependency on Nautilus!

If you have found 3rd party solution for desktop icons, you can disable new desktop module from GSettings. Disabling whole desktop module will disable also background handling. In such case you can enable root-background module.

Otherwise this release fixes background image on HiDPI monitors, adds support for grp:shift_caps_switch XKB option and other small bug fixes.
