I don't believe Qubes is actually going to migrate to Gnome. There
was an aborted attempt and Gnome 3's paradigm (tablet touch UI,
melded WM/app widgets) doesn't seem compatible with Qubes' concept.
seems to want about 4 times the dom0 RAM and still buggy am
getting all these flashing windows bar and applications menu hit
and miss giving dom0 memory boost 800 MiB and minimal qubes memory
400 MiB or so , so gave up
btw, is there any documentation on recommended RAM for dom0 using
I'd like to put back the Default memory settings but don't know
what they are
What GPU does your system have? I'm running KDE comfortably in only
1.5GB dom0 memory, and my graphics are Intel HD integrated.
I don't recall the exact procedure to set dom0 memory. It begins with
changing GRUB_CMDLINE_XEN_DEFAULT in /etc/default/grub and then you
run a command to update it.
so your 1.5GB of dom0 memory is NOT the dom0 "memory boost" in the
Qubes Global Settings? which I'm assuming is akin to "maxmem" for
other VMs ?
Right, its the base dom0 memory settings, which you can also add
temporarily from grub menu (hit 'e', make change then boot). My dom0
'memory boost' in Qubes Global Settings is only 160MB.
The dom0 kernel I'm using is 4.19.43.
I also have intel integrated graphics, maybe kabylake generation
Mine is Ivy Bridge, much older.
at minimal qube memory 1564 and dom0 memory boost 5138 I am
still finding it unusable the app menus don't appear , I keep
fighting the taskbar widgets which then somehow I make appear on the
desktop not the taskbar, then can't get them back on the taskbar,
etc, which maybe a / the KDE learning curve ..... nice to see something
less austere using Qubes, that I might be able to understand but
if it requires me to change something in Grub and not just the Global
Settings ...maybe time to give up :)
What happens if you change to sddm, what I'm using? In fact, it seems I
removed lightdm from dom0.
Also, for something easy to try, you can turn off the compositor with
Alt-Shift-F12. And the KDE compositor settings are under Display /
If none of that works, it may simply be a compatibility problem that the
old Fedora 25 possesses.
