What setting needs to be changed to make that happen again? thanks, Ron RC Started 2021-04-01T14:26:47+00:00 by Ron Croonenberg Community Member 20 points Log in to join the conversation Responses Sort By Oldest Sort By Newest OH Red Hat Newbie 15 points 12 April 2021 8:56 AM Ondrej Holy Hi Ron, it depends on your RHEL version and GNOME session type (standard, classic). Can you please be more concrete about your case? RC Community Member 35 points 12 April 2021 1:31 PM Ron Croonenberg oops, I assumed only the latest versions were discussed, sorry. I am running RHEL 8.3 and gnome 3.32.2 thanks, Ron OH Red Hat Newbie 15 points 13 April 2021 8:25 AM Ondrej Holy Hi Ron, I am afraid it is not possible in RHEL 8, unfortunately. This feature has been added upstream quite recently. The latest version of the extension requires gnome-shell 3.38 at least, so manual installation probably won't work properly. So I would suggest you file a new feature request for the gnome-shell-extensions component. RC Community Member 35 points 13 April 2021 1:43 PM Ron Croonenberg ah, so let's say that's not going to happen anytime soon, for that yo return, until at least 3.38 I am a little surprised though, about the gnome features, it seems like the philosophy shifted to "Hey let's not allow anything to be put on the desktop, and turn everything else off." OH Red Hat Newbie 15 points 14 April 2021 5:52 AM Ondrej Holy The fact that the current upstream version requires gnome-shell 3.38 doesn't mean that this feature can't be backported to gnome-shell-extensions in RHEL 8.
