Charles and Stefan - so those are gadgets placed on the desktop?  and how did you get them to be translucent? is that in settings or properties for the gadget?

 

thanks.





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Do you mean the engage gadget? Yes, it is possible to turn off the background bar in the settings.
If you mean the sticky notes and others, they are transparent by default...

sorry but i do not know about the engage gadget - i will have to look again.  i just saw a number of what appears to be gadgets on the desktop as individual features.  and they were clear/transparent.

 

one more stupid ? ----  i saw - maybe in a bodhi wiki/help file somewhere?  maybe just re: e on arch linux...  that you have to create a separate shelf - then transfer gadget to desktop and then delete the shelf.  is that correct? or is it simpler in bodhi - that you can just place it on the desktop?

 

 

when i first saw e17 i saw some pretty unique desktops that were so different than other linux/mac/windows i was extremely interested in the possibilities.  I like a clean simple desktop but i also like the uniqueness of what e can do.  maybe one day i will have my main office one like i have it now and the daily laptop all tricked out. just to experiment a bit.

found a tiny description about a dock of some sort but still do not dee it/get it/ or understand it - what is the difference between engage or the shelf or ibar?  i get shelves do not seem to be able to be placed anywhere?  only top bottom side - but still cannot get it from the pic on a bodhi wiki page or another manual page?  thanks.

Engage just has a cool zoom effect that shelves don't have

that r500 system really is slow - i need to know how to see what i have re: memory and ram and processor.  However - i have been thinking about just tricking the whole system out with unusual desktop stuff etc. just to see how some of you did stuff to get what some of the more out there desktops are  re; looks and features and various gadgets or modules or whatever on the desktop.  i like a clean deaktop but there were these features that I thoght really unique to 'e' when i first saw it and tried to work with it and tried to get it going.  with no clue what was going on.

Try

sudo lshw -short

to get an overview of your hardware.

 

to get detailed info about a specific type of hardware

sudo lshw -c name-of-class

replace name-of-class with the class as provided by the first command, p.e network

at' from package 'sat-xmpp-core' (universe)
 Command 'at' from package 'at' (main)
 Command 'dat' from package 'liballegro4-dev' (universe)
 Command 'rat' from package 'rat' (universe)
 Command 'cat' from package 'coreutils' (main)
 Command 'pat' from package 'dist' (universe)
 Command 'mat' from package 'mat' (universe)
 Command 'iat' from package 'iat' (universe)
Cat: command not found
 
 
 
other@other:~$ sudo lshw -c name-of-class
[sudo] password for other:
other@other:~$ ^C
 
so nothing happens on this r500.
 
what do you guys think?

I believe name-of-class should have been used after lshw -short and name of class should be replaced with memory cpu etc.

 

Edit: Just ran lshw -short and the list comes up in 4 columns; H/W path, Device, Class, Description. After that I ran lshw -c processor and was given a more detailed response about my processor. In both cases the system will complain that maybe the command should be run with root/sudo privileges. For your basic info, you don't need sudo/root.

 

I am surprised that cat /proc/cpuinfo didn't work.

Sorry about the capital C I was replying from my phone and it "helpfully" converted my lowercase c to uppercase since it started a sentence. GRR.
