3.22 differences and known issues in Gentoo

Please see upstream GNOME 3.22 Karlsruhe Release Notes and video for what is new version 3.22.

The following is Gentoo specific notes for 3.22 release:

  • We have reverted back to defaulting to Xorg sessions, even if USE="wayland" is enabled globally. You can still review the available sessions and choose the "GNOME on Wayland" session if you want. We will default to Wayland sessions in GNOME 3.26, if USE="wayland" is used.
  • There are some known issues with automatic launch of some background services, such as vino screen sharing and rygel media sharing.
  • gnome-extra/gnome-shell-extensions-topicons does not work anymore, gnome-extra/gnome-shell-extensions-topicons-plus is a suitable replacement, which is a fork with a different name and versioning.
  • We do not provide Flatpak integration yet, help is welcome!
  • Renaming multiple files in gnome-base/nautilus requires USE="tracker"
  • Photo sharing may require relevant USE flags on related packages for supporting online services.
  • We may have a different set of applications that are pulled in via our meta-packages. Most applications are packaged however, and can be installed separately if desired.
