Budgie Desktop 10.2.5 Now Available With Solus 1.1 OS

Josh Strobl from the Solus Project had the great pleasure of announcing the release and immediate availability of Budgie Desktop 10.2.5.

We are happy to announce the release of Budgie 10.2.5. This release builds upon our vision of a desktop environment focused on simplicity and elegance, by introducing further refinements to the user experience while expanding options for enabling a more tailored desktop experience.

Budgie Desktop 10.2.5 is the fifth maintenance release in the 10.2 series of the free open-source graphical desktop environment used on the flawless Solus Linux operating system.

This version of Budgie promises to be tailored to your experience.

Budgie is just as much about enabling you to tailor your experience than it is providing a sane out-of-the-box experience. We have expanded on desktop experience options by providing you the ability to:

  • Enable desktop icons
  • Select different cursor themes
  • Select different fonts for things like Window Titles, Interface, etc.

Via Josh Strobl’s announcement:

All the changes above accompany an abundance of other improvements, some transparent to the user but equally important to the experience.

  • Budgie is now stateless.
  • Built-in theme has been ported to GTK 3.20.
    • As a result, we select the correct theme based on the GTK version.
  • Fix window accountancy errors in budgie-wm, fixes several Steam titles
  • LightDM lock screen functionality has been restored.
  • Resolved instances where budgie-panel wouldn’t render across the entire display, as well as fixing rare instances where budgie-panel would have a titlebar.

New Bluetooth applet:


Budgie Desktop 10.2.5 can be downloaded right now as a source archive from its GitHub page.
