of the major issues I felt in Gnome was the extensions installed get
disabled after restart (since I can't go to sleep anyway). The fix
suggested was to use the "System default".
didn't fix other issues like the sleep mode not waking up and the
classic mode not showing any elements, but I am tackling issues one
at the time.
tray pop ups
tray, it looked big and annoying ( it responds to every mouse gesture
no matter how small)
also very big in size, it took 5GB more than XFCE took, even with
cleaners like Bleachbit, I was running low on space.
didn't even know how to go into sleep mode, turns out you need to
press and hold ALT while the menu is popped out to go to sleep menu.
wake up from sleep
couldn't find an explanation for this bug! The computer displays a
black screen whenever waking from standby and stays that way until I
turn it off manually!
classic mode (just a background)
only loads a mouse cursor and a background with no visual elements
until I turn it off manually! No easy fix or workaround for it (yet).
wasn't able to install extensions from the extension site,
extensions.gnome.org even after enabling the addon in my browser and
adding the site to trust list. It was resolved on it's on.
install won't stay enabled after reboot
the extension that is supposed to make it less sensitive resets on
reboot. The fix was to choose the “System default” from the login
which (worked for me like many other people). It wasn't convenient
but it was an easy fix.
I'll post that has a fix for most of these issues very soon :)
