Just a PSA - for anyone waiting for the release of 16.04.2 of budgie-remix , Ubuntu Release team have just announced that they have delayed 16.04.2 until the 2nd Feb. They are working through some issues with the hardware-enablement-stack.

We will try to bring the 16.04.2 version of budgie-remix hopefully on Sat/Sun 4th/5th Feb.

Hello guys!
After installing Ubuntu Bugdie 16.04.1 in the first System Update requested about 400 Mb, but almost at the end appeared the message "Failed to download the packages" and asks to verify my connection to the internet. Being that the internet is everything ok, so much that I did the installation normally and I am getting into the internet.
I rebooted the computer and clicked on the Program Updater but the message continues.
I'd like some help. Thank you.

k - you need to find your proxy details from your university sysadmin and then configure apt to work with it: askubuntu.com - 'apt-get' does not work with Proxy

I've using Budgie 10.2.9 on Chromebook (Toshiba CB2 "Swanky"), and it runs really great. I wanted to post a question to the community -- I hope this is ok to do here (most of the posts seem to be news about UB).

So my question is whether it is possible to put the "budgie-menu" to the Plank dock. I know you can remove it from the top panel. I would think there is a way to move it to Plank, but I haven't seen it anywhere online.

Is this doable?

I guess there is the "blow up the UI" option (for users, not the UB) of dropping Plank and using Cairo-Dock instead. But that is not a great way to go....

usually I wouldnt do this - but this is just both weird and amazing at the same time - this person has taken the trouble to make Windows 10 look like Ubuntu Budgie!

Hi to all,

Just started using Ubuntu Budgie Remix 16.04LTS version for the long term support of the Ubuntu repositories.

I was just wondering, can i have a network speed monitor (netspeed indicator) app on the taskbar like i had when i was using Xfce/Mate?

more info - https://medium.com/@tomac/installing-ubuntu-mint-linux-on-onda-820w-tablet-727747a376b#.pcq7ahtpf  ... apparently you need to find work-arounds for "an acpi issue" and freeze issue - whatever that means.
