Figured I'd start a new thread for this since we've had a new stable release.

 

Release post in DW Weekly -> http://distrowatch.c...?issue=20150223

 

Post talking about the Legacy edition on FOSSForce -> http://fossforce.com...older-hardware/





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

A review done by distrowatch:

I don't fully agree but he has some points to be considered.

I can't reproduce his issue with synaptic on any of my systems physical or otherwise here.

 

I agree the default dark theme blows. It is one of the worst things about Enlightenment. It will not be the default come 3.1.0 in the fall. At the time of release for 3.0.0 we didn't have any fully complete alternatives.

Hey Jeff,

 

I had the same happen when I would install Synaptic during RC1 time. (Don't know about now.) What would happen is that there would be 2 Synaptic options in the menu. I believe the one with root privileges is in the usual spot, but the non-root one is under a different category in the menu. I'm wondering if this is what happened.

That is not the issue I'm talking about. He claimed Synaptic failed to start when launched with sudo/esudo.

 

Two launchers are intentional. One for viewing packages as normal user and one that launches asking for a password.

No alternatives....just modify the default theme yourself after installing i would say. But i do agree, for first time users, the dark theme isn't really attractive.

And booth have the same name which is HIGHLY annoying. Especially with the E launcher. Might wanna rename them?

Confirmed. Probably has to do something with the theme.

Guys, please don't hijack this thread for other issues beside what the topic title states. If you have any issues/problems/questions, post them in the correct forum section. Thanks!

A review appeared in Linux Format magazine, May 2015, page 20.

 

It starts with the following text:

 

Bodhi Linux 3.0

 

It's lived through a near death experience, but has the flirtation with extinction scarred this release? Shashank Sharma gives it a Freudian evaluation.

 

Bodhi Linux is essentially a one-man project, so Jeff Hoogland's retirement seemed to sound the death knell for the beloved build-your-own distro. Thankfully, he had a change of heart and returned to continue work on the release that was under development when he quit...

We really aren't and I am working towards making this less and less true.
