I am posting this running Bodhi 3.1.0 Legacy on a IBM Thinkpad T42. I had initially installed this last week-end and was not able to get the wireless to work, which is the Intel 2200bg card in this laptop.
I got annoyed and moved on trying different distros, but there are not many that support this older hardware any more. I was going to put XP back on it, but the drivers won't install for some reason. Oh, well who cares.
So, I went back to Bodhi this week-end, Halloween 2015. I am so very glad that I did, what an awesome distribution to run on this machine.
This time, I started out by doing the updates and then installed the Ubuntu Restricted Extra Packages: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras, then installed the Bodhi On-Line Media packages: sudo apt-get install bodhi-online-media. Not real sure of the benefits these packages provide, but next thing was to get the wireless working. (Some pet-peeve of mine.)
Following some on-line entries, we did: lspci -nnk | grep -i net, to get: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection information. Then ran this: rfkill list all. Then installed this package: sudo apt-get install rfkill. Rebooted the machine and turned on the wireless with Fn-F5. I was then able to see my router and it connected upon entering my password. Works great!
I have since installed a few other items, Synaptic, Chromium, UFW, and the beautiful Forum-Moksha theme, looks like autumn and pumpkins. Also, the Faenza icon set, and probably some stuff already forgotten.
It took a little looking through the forums to figure out how to get my quick launch icons into the ibar, but that is pretty easy, once you find it. I also want to say the Bodhi App Center is about as cool as it gets, wonderful job!!! Thanks Jeff and other developers for this distro, Keep it Going!!!
