Great work again Jeff, many thanks.

Personal view is I'll hang on to 0.1.6 for now as most of the update affects new installs.

Another step closer to 1.0 :D

Hi - using it on a Dell Mini 10 Netbook; works wonderfully well. Very impressed by netbook configuration but how do you add say Chromium to desktop icons (along with Midori; Leafpad; LxTerminal etc??!! Excellent work! Best wishes.

kwgarner -

Click on the Bodhi Leaf at the bottom of the screen and it will bring up a list of all your applications, then click and hold on an icon and it will allow you to place it on one of your work spaces.

You sure your disc download and burn is good? 0.1.7 is the same software for the most part as 0.1.6

If I checked the download, but will comment in a post several days ago that the update of Cups was problematic.

As i was reviewing the 0.1.6 i found it nice to work with, i updated via apt-get and it worked just great, the boot time is not an issue for me, but any improvement is welcome always. I can say its fully capable OS to replace my actual OS, its clean and do what i need no more. Great Job, i know the 1.0 version will be outstanding. Meanwhile i will try the 0.1.7 version

congratulations

by the way, i have no issues with the printer, even my multifunctional Cannon MX300

How would I tell what RC version I have? cat /etc/*release /etc/*version gives
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=10.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=lucid
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Bodhi Linux"
Not much new info here. I installed 0.1.6 but have regularly been using apt-get to update and upgrade. I seem to remember somewhere we should not do dist-upgrade with Bodhi. Still, it would be nice when 1.0 is released not to have to make new CD and install from it.

Just keep updating and you will be good to go. No need to reinstall. Version numbers more represent the progress of the live CD

Hi Jeff

When you say,

"Just keep updating and you will be good to go. No need to reinstall. Version numbers more represent the progress of the live CD",

are you saying that Bodhi is a rolling release, or does your comment only apply to the upgrade from 0.1.6 to 0.1.7?

Thanks,

Mike.

Well - the current plan is to back port software for at least three years to the current Bodhi release. So for all intents and purposes we are rolling.

I have done apt-get update and apt-get upgrade using 0.1.6 but I do not get the changes you have made. The login screen is still the same with the big login, no leafpad etc What seems to be the issue?

Thanks,

Ahh - up until 0.1.7 those minor changes did not go out via the package manager. You will need to make them by hand or do a clean install to start getting them.

First off, as I'm new to the forums here, I'd like to thank you for such great work. I have a 2-3 year old Lenovo W500 who's onboard graphics isn't even supported by Lenovo anymore (I believe it was a modified desktop unit). Anyway, no other distro of the Enlightenment desktop supported it at all, and were generally buggy, so thank you so much for making a beautiful and clean version of enlightenment.

Back to the topic, so I assume, as I was on 0.1.5, that these small updates include the new themes as well? Is there any way to get them without a fresh install at this point?

Thanks again.

Yes, you just install them from here ;-)
