20 April 2013 - 11:34 AMHi,
I know this issue of mine is not related exclusively to Bodhi nor is it related to any particular distro out there, it's more of a problem with my laptop.
I have Win7 and 4 distros on my machine. The 4 linux distros have their own root partitions but share the swap and /home partitions. I've been running like this for almost a year now and never had a problem until today when I found I can't boot into any of the 4 distros. There seems to be a problem occurring with /dev/sda7 during boot (The distros without plymouth screens show the text and the error, with Bodhi it gets stuch at the plymouth which keeps going on and on until I turn off). This (/dev/sda7) is my /home partition. Links to 2 images of the screen when the problem arises are below. I don't know how to deal with it although I'm guessing I'll have to use a live disc. Please help me out.
24 February 2013 - 02:03 PMRunning Bodhi 2.2 and when I enable 'show desktop icons' it displays my /home folder. Initially it was working well but I think that after an update some time back this issue came up. How can it be fixed (better if I don't have to delete my .e folder!)
11 February 2013 - 09:48 PMThe FF on my bodhi install acts really weird. it comes up with so many adds on any page that i visit and sometimes randomly redirects me to random pages on the web. I have Chromium and Midori installed on the same Bodhi and the are okay, also FF on my other 4 OS'es on the same PC doesn't act like that, just on Bodhi. I know FF is not part of Bodhi default but does anyone have an idea why this might be happening?
11 November 2012 - 09:35 PMI ran into a bit of a problem. I switched to a profile that was not working correctly and so my screen went blank. Now I cant use my bodhi install because the profile cannot be loaded upon logging in. Is there any way of changing the profile to another one which works without the need to log in e.g. editing a text file from my ubuntu install or something like that? Please help, I dont want to install the whole system again because of this small issue
11 November 2012 - 07:38 PMMy laptop, for some reaosn, tends to be more noisy (the fan works more) when I'm using Bodhi compared to when I'm using Windows or ElementaryOS. The noise is the usual one you get from a laptop when you open a number of rather heavy applications and it does come when I open e.g. Firefox and one or two other apps on Windows and elementary(it goes away once i keep idle for some time or close the apps) but when I'm on Bodhi this just continues even when I have no apps open. It is very rare when the noise goes low while using Bodhi even though it is much lighter with fewer and smaller apps compared to the other two. I'm not sure if anyone can help me with this but I'd be grateful for any tips or info etc.
