Before making a post in this part of the forum it is advisable to search for similar problems already being solved. This can be done via the "Search..."-box in the top right corner of the page, pretty close to your account information. If you don't manage to find a solution to the problem on the forums, search the web. Remember that Bodhi Linux is based on Ubuntu (0.x.y and 1.x.y: 10.04, 2.x.y: 12.04, 3.x.y: 14.04), so if you manage to find a solution to the problem on an Ubuntu setup, don't be afraid to try it. If it works, we encourage you to create or edit an article on our wiki. Another great resource is the Quickstart Guide which can be found on your local system under Main Menu → Bodhi Linux → Quick Start.
It might also be a good idea to have a look at our Forum Rules.
If you are having problem with installing/removing applications please check that your package lists are up to date by running eepDater or by issuing the following command in a terminal (go to Main Menu → Applications → Accessories → Terminology):
sudo apt-get updateIf something went wrong during installation before updating it might be a good idea to issue this:
sudo apt-get -f install
What to include in a post:
Now, if you do not find any information about you particular problem and decide to make a forum post, please follow regular forum etiquette. Many of us browse this forum daily to help you with your problems.
If you use the testing repo, stating that is probably a good idea. If you don't know what the testing repo is, you are most likely not using it. Regardless of your problem, please include information about which version of Bodhi Linux you are running, and version numbers of any relevant packages. Most applications have an entry in their menus that reads "Help" or "About" where you can find the version number of the application.
If you are having problems with an application it is probably a good idea to try to run it from a terminal. Type the name of the application followed by the Enter/Return-key (i.e. to run Midori in the terminal, just type midori and hit Enter). If you do now know the command to launch the application from the terminal, please say that in your post, we will tell you.
Depending on your problem we will need different information about your system.
Information about your graphics card:
lspci -nn | grep VGASome info about your OpenGL drivers (might be good for graphics related issues):
