Debian experimental metacity package version 3.32.0-1 contains my fix
for this problem.

After downloading and installing the package on Debian buster, and
restarting lightdm, the Sugar home view appears with the Journal

If anyone needs it fixed on Debian before release, report a release
critical bug against the metacity package about it, and be sure to
mention the version that fixes it.  I'm not sure if the problem
qualifies as release critical though, since you can workaround it with
the F3 key.

Perhaps the Journal should include a button for the home view.  ;-)
