      that's not what the Ubuntus marketing says. didn't you hear it? 66% of developers prefer Ubuntu, the unified platform across workstations, servers and containers

      so? whats the problem? if you want to remove all spaces then ctrl + backspace, you ARE an actual poweruser dev and not a nocoder troony right?

      i srsly dont get why ppl use all this bullshit. my desktop has been working perfectly fine without gnome and kde, for years.
      and i also dont get how you can expect a useful text-editor from the crew that didnt manage to implement image-preview into their filepicker for 20 years

      the issue is not being able to insert tab and editor not respecting explicit settings. you ARE capable of reading, right?

    Pretty sure everyone uses vscode no matter the OS nowadays.
    Bloated and slow as hell, but at least it can handle tabs.

    installed the flatpak devel version to try it (it pulled 1 GB runtime with it and I have slow network), still behaves like this on devel. Tried few more languages - some force the indent style (Markdown, Java, JavaScript), some don't (Go, even thought it actually has official style guide recommending tabs).

    Figured I should check existing issues to not file a duplicate (also since it's private gitlab and I remember they had some stop on new accounts recently, not even sure I would be able to open one.)

    Closed without proper justification why it should ignore explicit settings, just stating it's intended.

          yes, the window decorations are aweful by any measure. but I guess that could be solved by tweaking GTK themes, if I cared

            If you're going to use a WM that is never going to be ported to Wayland then at least use a good WM like IceWM,Fvwm or Window Maker.

        Yes open sores means that if you absolutely need to use this specific text editor instead of switching to another one that you're able to fix the problem yourself whereas with proprietary software you're forced to accept what you get and have to be thankful for it.

    The new GNOME "Text Editor" is genuinely trash tier software compared to gedit. I feel like the only thing it needed to do was the follow the GNOME HIG better than gedit, while everything else was ignored, simply because the gedit developer has a bit of a feud with the "core" GNOME devs.

      You can't change the keybinds on the Terminal either, it's actually called "kgx" i think.

    GNOME is a corporate product financed by IBM/Red Hat.
    Its devs are paid to work on it.

    This is the correct behavior. The C file is using 2 spaces so tab is using 2 spaces. To do otherwise would be almost as bad as your editor just changing the encoding without asking.

    alright this is hilarious bug
    I was playing with the Ubuntu a bit more now, setting up the TextEditor source to work on the patches, and noticed a weird behavior with desktop icons
    if you move them, they are still selectable on old position

      and the video is laggy because when you are holding a mouse button and selecting, two cores just start running on 100% and the whole machine is laggy

        in short retrospect, this is probably the real bug
        how do you even profile Gnome shell itself to debug this and see what's eating my cores?
