After trying GNOME Design which also comes to Design Suite as
inheritance from Workstation, it appears the application is really
unworthy for production use with the following reasons:
- Unacceptable long indexing time to display photos.
- The current photos overview lacked date time for taken pictures to
- The RPM version has oversized head bar when pluggin an external device
import photos while flatpak version looks fine.
- The overall performance is very slow just to view local photos from
For those reasons, GNOME Photos will need a replacement by alternative
as default for Workstation unless the upstream maintainer addresses the

This week saw many fixes landing for the KDE desktop components along with some UI tweaking and other alterations.
This week KDE developer Nate Graham called for KDE to embrace simplicity by default in an effort to appeal to more novice users. He's also been wanting to squash more "annoying bugs" and paper-cuts for the KDE desktop. With this week's development efforts, more KDE bugs were fixed.
since I upgraded to Fedora 35 I immediately noticed drawing glitches in
a virtual machine (virt-manager) and since an update to Firefox 94.0
also there (for example when opening menus), thus I guess it has
something to do with the graphics drivers or something like that. I run
X.org under MATE and I had never any such issue before the upgrade to
f35 (I do run many virtual machines for various testing reasons, thus
I'd surely notice). I tried to record the screen, but the created video
does not exhibit the problem.
The graphics stack is kinda foggy for me, I know basically nothing
about it. I do not know where to start the investigation and what to
Any suggestion, please?
Thanks and bye,

The next meeting of the Fedora Workstation Working Group is planned
for Tuesday 7 December, at 9.30 EDT. This will be a slightly unusual
meeting, because it will be hosted from the workstation planning
meetings that are happening in Boston next week. This might also mean
that we'll be missing some participants.
See below for the preliminary agenda.
#topic Fedora Workstation Planning
- Report from the Boston planning event
- Where would the WG like workstation to be in 3 years?
- What are the main obstacles to getting there?
The Workstation Working Group would love to hear what everyone in the
community is planning for Fedora Workstation 36. Specifically, we want
to hear about:
1. technical or design changes which may impact other teams or
components, or where you will need help from the Working Group
2. new features that might be interesting to users or developers
We mostly want to hear about changes where there is some ambition to
deliver the change for F36, as opposed to wishlist items. However, you
don't have to be 100% confident that a change will land, and we'd
sooner hear about plans than not hear about them.
Feel free to use this thread to share your plans, or drop by the
Workstation channel to discuss them there.
