Bodhi 4.2.1 Legacy - Startup command no longer works
Posted 12 September 2017 - 04:16 PM
I've just installed Bodhi 4.2.1 Legacy on an old computer. Everything works fine except for a startup command I've always used before on Bodhi to turn off the touchpad: synclient TouchpadOff=1. It generates an error message when I boot up or reset Moksha, and I have to execute the command manually to turn off the touchpad.
Any clues as to why I'm having this problem? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Thanks for the swift response, DOOMguy. I've just tried that (enclosing in single quotes), and it made no difference - the same error message appears. It's really weird - I've had no problems with this startup command in other versions of Bodhi.

I've just deleted the single quotes and rebooted, and the startup command now works! How crazy is that???
So the problem is solved, but it's left me totally mystified!

I am just curious, did you use an editor to make those changes? Which editor, but this is a bit academic at this point, considering that this is no longer an issue. The editor isn't the problem, in any case.
If you still have your Bodhi liveUSB stick, it would be interesting to repeat the steps from memory, if only to experiment. Glad your issue is solved.
EDIT: Added last 2 lines.
