Does this have to be a separate download or does the alpha get updated to beta?

There are commands in the linked post that let you upgrade.

 

Note that if you want to have the profile changes mentioned you will need to also delete your ~/.e directory and then log out / log back in to get the default profile.

Remember Kev, a wise man once said, To learn Linux, you break something, then try again.

 

Another wise man once read that if you break something, you get to keep the pieces.

 

The wisest man typed skimming doesn't pay  :)

I installed Beta 3 somehow and have questions:

1. How can I add keyboard layouts if I didn't do this during install? I found no item in Setting menu, it looks stripped.

2. How can I add VPN connection from .ovpn configuration, and VPN connection at all? I try to add via standard menu, it propose me to choose from Hardware and Virtual but the names are ambiguous. What should I choose to do that?

If I remember correctly, one has to load the keyboard module, but I don't fiddle with this often, so use that as a tip--no more, no less.

Keyboard is the same as previous version of Bodhi. The details can be found in the quick start guide - if those directions are not working for you please open a support request thread.

 

VPNs should be handled by the network manager applet found on your system tray - again just like previous versions of Bodhi,.

It should but it doesn't! There is no menu item "VPN", although it should be.

Packages below are installed.

You need to scroll down that window to see the vpn options. Did you try that?

If you still don't see anything I guess you should install network-manager-openpvn-gnome to get the gui to work correctly.

Enjoy,

You are horribly right! :)

But I noticed another bug. Caps Lock is enabled on startup and works reversed - it enabled but types lower-case. When I disable it, it starts to type uppercase.

Yes, I missed it at first. But the bug with 4+ langs still exists.

It is the X11 bug, not Bodhi bug...

 

As you know, I created an hack to choose a language layout from infinite list of layouts. The only "issue" is, you can choose it just with mouse.

Hmm, keyboard Caps Lock works correct here with light and all.

Wrong. Ubuntu 16 is based on X11 too but handles 6 languages brilliantly. On Unity. However, if I install E20 on Ubuntu it breaks this thing.

Probably because Unity uses SCIM, or iBus or whatever for language switching. I don't want to know the details as a user.

So we can conclude it is DE-related problem, not X11-related. Already reported on Enlightenment bugtracker about this.

Here is the posted maniphest if you interested. To be more precise, it's not DE-related problem, but rather display manager-related problem. So, presumably you're were right stating X11 is the reason.

I didn't know Ubuntuers implemented new DM called Mir. However, this doesn't clarify everything and the questions raised in maniphest are still alive.Some pieces of could have been rewritten before the full transition to Mir (which was on 16.10) and these pieces can be adopted here  :)

Yea, I wanted to write you I have tested 5 layouts and it did not worked as I claimed it is a X11 bug. I think this bug is possible to overcome with a code trick when after each switch to new layout, setxkbmap is called with another 3 more layouts. But this requires deep EFL knowledge. What I was able to create was a language selector which I sent to you in the past. The only disadvantage is you have to choose the layout with mouse. Is this solution so unacceptable for you?
