This is with the stock window manager for ubuntu 18? I got away from that horror story as quickly as I could work out. Not that xfce4 is looking much less annoying TBH. What is it with the unix world wanting to make life as miserable as possible?

It may just be from long experience but the least awful unix/gui pair I know is Raspbian - or more correctly since they recently changed the name - Raspberry Pi OS. It's Debian based, the UI is tolerably consistent and best of all the system is being cared for and developed by some people that seem to have a decent clue. It wouldn't be worth mentioning this if they didn't provide an X86 version but they do so it is.
