3.0 legacy RC2 - a couple of relevant issues
Posted 21 November 2014 - 09:22 PM
I'm a newbie of Linux, I met Bodhi 2.4 short time ago and it was a nice surprise: you all guys did a really good job and I enjoy using Bodhi.
To make useful again a N450 Acer netbook, I've installed 3.0 RC1 first, but e19 is too slow.
3.0 RC2 e17, instead, runs smoothly, anyway I had to move back to 2.4 due to a couple of issues I tried to solve with no success.
#1: econnman is totally unstable. Spent lot of time trying to configure, connect, reboot, scan, launch from terminal, etc.
Each connection lasts a few seconds or a little more. No chance to use the internet.
#2: I'm sure it is up to me, but I'm unable to configure the keyboard. I didn't find keyboard settings, and during installation the option for different keyboards didn't appear (or, if it appears, it doesn't work - I don't remember for sure). It has been fun to search the position of US keys...
It was just to give a small participation in a great project.

For your keyboard settings, go to start > settings > modules, then scroll down to the keyboard module, select it, and hit apply. It should appear on the shelf. Click the module on the shelf and go to settings. Then click add and select the new keyboard type you'd like to use.
for wifi, try
sudo rfkill list allto see if anything is blocked.
If you have softblocks, be sure you're turning wifi on in the drop-down menu of the econnman module on the shelf. It should scan automatically and show any available networks in that menu a few seconds after it's turned on, and you should just be able to click to connect. Or you could do...
sudo rfkill unblock allThen do list all again to be sure they're unblocked.
If you have hardblocks, there's a wifi switch turned off on your pc somewhere.
If none of that helps, try pasting the results of
lspcihere for us, and we'll go from there.

sorry no can do as I moved back to 2.4
Consider that my wifi now is working fine and nothing has been changed.
To be clear, with 3.0 RC2 econnman was able to scan and connect to various wifi, disconnecting within seconds or minutes. Tried also econnman-bin -a, read somewhere.
Weird failure, do you know only this case?

Could you provide the outcome of
lspci -nnk | grep 0280
Would be useful to know what's going on, on most of my different machines wifi has worked out of the box. The one that did not had a problematic Broadcom chip that needed some work to be done.

Something you didn't mention was how things worked on the e19 version, either because you didn't really play with it or because it didn't give you the same problem. (Not a mind reader so )
Bodhi 3 RC2 Legacy uses a much older kernel, which is found in the non-PAE version of Bodhi 2.4.0 (which I'll guess you aren't using). I wonder if that played a part at all.
Reminds me, I should post on my own legacy experience.

I don't remember how econnman worked on e19. I played with e19 just for a while because it was 'unplayable'.
Actually I played shortly with e17 RC2 too because it was impossible to install anything.
