One thing i noticed for those that use Dash to Panel extension. It doesn’t install the 16 version automatically and 15.1 version needs to be removed, reboot and then be able to install it again from extensions.gnome.org trough Chromium browser.

Edit: September 17, 2018 (Europe: Paris), September 17, 2018 (America: Los Angeles)
Whatever Gnome developers did with 3.30 version, they broken entirely the Tablet and Pen support, and whatever fix we had in the past, is no longer working, regardless Gnome-shell (original or branded), as it seems the pad-osd.css file has no longer any effect. Recompiling gnome-shell-theme.gresources with the correct values (as is used to be) doesn’t change anything.
The Tablet buttons can’t be mapped anymore and when the Stylus/Pen is detected, gnome-shell restarts and brings me back to login screen asking for user and password.


No issue here. Gnome 3.30. Nautilus still in 3.28.


The Budgie Desktop will likely have issues with this update due to Gnome 3.30, so Budgie should be updated to the git version instead of the current release of 10.4


I have noticed just one issue as of today.
control-centre crashes if I click on the “share” tab. The ugly thing is when restarting CC it remembers the panel last used and crashes again.
Remedy: run e.g. “gnome-control-center background” in a terminal.

I have to add that I run stable and only installed the GNOME packages from unstable.

By the way, looking for a way to install debugging symbols…

$ gdb /usr/bin/gnome-control-center

No issues, gnome 3.30 kernel 4.19


Never do that. Switch either to a branch or simply wait. All packages in unstable may be compiled against different depending libraries. Please switch to unstable to fix your issue.

[Testing Update] 2018-09-25 - Gnome, Grub, Kernel 4.19-rc5, Plasma-Workspace

After going entirely to testing (which has the packages by now), the issue mentioned by me is gone. So indeed it was due to the mix of stable and unstable packages.
