Current developments:

1. Added Section ID [108] (Icons not showing in panels).
2. Plans on adding openbox-session and customization to minimize memory usage.
3. Plans on adding alternative window managers and panels.

with the nearing of bodhi 2.0, I'm also thinking of recompiling and reclassifying the guide. will check to see if any these are present in 2.0 and if yes, see if the fix still applies.

Why not start a second guide for 2.0, and keep this one for 1.4, as some people will still use 1.4 when 2.0 is released.

Thanks. :D Feedback's a nice boost, but really, I'm just happy I could help. :) (It's also good for me. I can make a record of how I ended up fixing some things. Might do me some good in the long run :D)

With the release of Bodhi 2.0, I'll be holding off on revising these (for now, anyway). With the coming of finals and my thesis gone stagnant, it might take me the whole year. You're all free to post your tips and tricks. I'll include them whenever I can. :D

Added notes for those tested to work in Bodhi 2.0
I'll be testing others and add more including faster boot-ups, managing virtualbox sessions, rebooting during system hangs and other alternative programs, but this might take a while. Foreseen date of release for new compilation is estimated to be in April.

I don't know if this has been reported, but adding a gadget like deskshow to the engage bar with a gadcon in bodhi 1.4 can cause the bar to stop hiding itself when a window touches it. To fix this, move the gadcon to the left side of the bar. That can be done by right-clicking on the engage bar, clicking 'configure bar', clicking the 'Bar Items' tab, selecting 'gadcon' and clicking the up button until it hits the top of the list.

This is just a random sort of bug I ran into and found a fix for while configuring my system, and I've heard of it being replicated on other systems through IRC, but I'm not sure if it is a problem in the 2.x distro or not.

Thanks. :D i'll make sure to add this when I finally have the time.

A quick note. I have upgraded to 2.xx so I won't be posting much on 1.4 from now on. I'll be adding those that are in the comments but they will no longer be personally replicated and tested. I'm planning to compile another set of quick fixes for version 2.xx, but that's scheduled on April so don't expect me to be posting it anytime soon yet.

currently experimenting on web apps. Sorry; I can't verify any of the new fixes since I've discarded my bodhi over peppermint. I'm planning to re-install bodhi sometime in september. In the mean time, I'll be doing some experimenting on web apps, applicable to both bodhi and peppermint.

as for Squee's question, yes, I think so.
