Where is 'Software Sources' tab under BodhiLinux?Administration
Posted 06 March 2018 - 05:17 PM
I'm newcomer on this Forums and new user of Bodhi Linux as well.
I would like to enable the component called main, but I cannot.
Under my Bodhi system the 'System,
Administration' and 'Software Sources' are not visible at all.
So, could you tell me please, where can I find mentioned 'Software Sources' settings?
Thank you in advance for your help.
Below additional information from terminology:
shows that this is a rather poorly worded message that means the the
'main' package source repository must be enabled. Go to System,
Administration, Software Sources and on the Ubuntu Software tab ensure
that Canonical Supported Open Source Software (main) is enabled.

If that doesn't work post the contents of your sources file
Here is my sources.list file:
deb http://packages.bodhilinux.com/bodhi xenial b4main
This is everything what I have inside this file. Is it OK?
If not, please post the contents of the correct sources file
Thank you in advance!

Below is the content of a default sources.list with a polish mirror.
Could you tell me please what for are all of these "mirrors"?
By another words, what happend if I use, for example:
(notice, that this link works correct)
Index of /ubuntu [ICO] Name Last modified Size [PARENTDIR] Parent Directory - [DIR] dists/ 2017-10-24 23:16 - [DIR] indices/ 2018-03-08 14:08 - [ ] ls-lR.gz 2018-03-08 14:09 14M [DIR] pool/ 2010-02-27 06:30 - [DIR] project/ 2013-06-28 11:52 - [DIR] ubuntu/ 2018-03-08 14:16 - Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu) Server at archive.ubuntu.com Port 80

Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu) == Apache/2.4.10 (Debian)??
Thank you for your answer in advance.

Well, let's try.
archive.ubuntu.com is the central address for the ubuntu repositories. Having the whole world get their software and updates from this single server would cause massive traffic and slow down the speed for everybody.
Ubuntu has server capacity all over the world that they use to have exact copies of the main server so the traffic would be spread and speed is much better. These copies are the so called mirrors. The copies get updated very frequent so they stay true copies of the main server.
Knowing that you have BodhiLinux using polish language the polish mirror might be the best for you.
Using these addresses in the sources.list to visit in your browser is not the intended way to go there. They are meant to be used by the software installation and update programs like eepDater, Synaptic or through terminal commands as apt-get to find the data they need.
If you prefer to use another mirror you can simply replace 'pl.archive' with another countrycode like 'de.archive'. Most texteditors offer a "find and replace" option that does it for you.
Changes in the sources.list must be followed with "refreshing" your software applications.
If you use the terminal the best command to stay up to date is:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
The first part will refresh the cached repository content overview and when done it will continue with producing a list of software to be updated that you can accept or refuse. When accepted it will upgrade all packages for you.
Hope this helps.
