#104382 A new issue with Moksha is coming, courtesy of E

Posted by SmartDuck on 17 May 2017 - 10:24 PM

Using the latest kernel is a choice but if you want something bleeding edge I think why not use Debian unstable or something like Arch. The kernel that comes with Bodhi 4.1.0  is just fine and stable. Moksha works fine on the systems here, my own  laptop (Dell), my wifes laptop (Dell) and a Sharkoon game system with Steam I've build for my son with a Asus motherboard, 16GB Corsair mem and 2GB Ati graphics card (4800 series), 240G SSD hd and 1T hd.

#104265 Learning some form of programming for noob?

Posted by SmartDuck on 10 May 2017 - 02:52 PM

Python with PyGame is easy to start with and to get quick results.


#104228 Great way to learn Linux...what has helped you the most?

SELinux based on a developed by the NSA. Gives me a bad taste in my mouth.

Bodhi is based on Ubuntu and has AppArmor. Never used it.

Bodhi is fine when you're carefull using sudo, add a firewall with gufw/iptables and harddisk encryption.

Posted by SmartDuck on 27 April 2017 - 09:33 PM

Use the command line... open Terminology ( Bodhi menu -> Applications -> System Tools ) and type after the $


$ sudo apt-get install rawtherapee


Enter your account password and the package will be installed.

But you have the know the exact name of the ubuntu package.


You can install and use synaptic to search for the packages you need.


$ sudo apt-get install synaptic


You will find Synaptic in the menu -> Applications -> Preferences

I have a small garden but love to grow my own vegetables, fruit and herbs (latuce, spinach, strawberries, raspberries, carrots, green beans, beetroot, figs, prunes etc..) . I use a small green house to experiment with aquaponics, breeding white cloud minnows and use the plant beds as filter. And 5 chickens providing us fresh eggs every day.

#104068 Is Chromium "calling home"?

Posted by SmartDuck on 24 April 2017 - 03:58 PM

Firefox calls google also. You can remove this behaviour by removing all google settings from about:config.

Just type about:config in the address field. Search for the safebrowsing settings.


This is the reason I use Palemoon as my default browser and Midori as backup.

#103947 Bodhi Linux 4.1.0 Released

Posted by SmartDuck on 13 April 2017 - 08:16 PM

My wife is easy going :)

She had some problems upgrading Linux Lite, so she was used to Linux, Bodhi was an easy step.

My moms laptop is an other story. She had Windows XP and was fine with it until friends "experts" messed up her laptop.

So I installed Bodhi on her Dell Latitude E6400 and none of her friends touched her laptop because it is alien to them.

#103851 Bodhi Linux 4.1.0 Released

I have upgraded my wifes laptop too.

She uses Firefox, Thunderbird, Gimp, LibreOffice and RawTherapee.

For printing I had to install hplip and download the ppd file for the HP Deskjet 3057A.

It is not supported by default.

It all works fine. 

#103761 Bodhi Linux 4.1.0 Released

Posted by SmartDuck on 30 March 2017 - 03:39 PM

Here too, 4.1.0 64bit is a great release. So far no glitches.

Tested: Claws Mail, Palemoon, Geany, Gimp, Meld, Sqliteman, Arduino IDE, Python (2.7, pip, sqlite and pygame), Lighttpd with PHP, Minetest, Steam (Terraria runs nice) and KeePass2.


My mom still runs Bodhi 2.4, time to upgrade her laptop too.

#103748 Back to Bodhi

Posted by SmartDuck on 27 March 2017 - 08:02 PM

Last year was a bit of distro hopping, tried Debian, Linux Lite, Antergos... Bodhi 3.x had issues with my Dell E4300.

This evening I installed Bodhi 4.1.0. Love the simplicity, feels stable so far, I will keep it this way for a while.

4.1.0 feels good, thanx Jeff!

#98191 Future versions of Bodhi

Posted by SmartDuck on 15 March 2016 - 11:46 PM

Stability first, testing 3.1.1 now in VirtualBox. No issues found. Moksha looks stable.

Maybe I going to use it as my main distro again.

#92397 Could you tell me how to install about eclipse for Bodhi 3.0.0

Posted by SmartDuck on 30 April 2015 - 10:03 PM

Sitting Fox you have it right.


Eclipse installation is easy....  but it takes some work to setup.


In Terminology type:

$ sudo apt-get install eclipse


Once installed open Eclipse via the menu  Applications > Development > Eclipse


In Eclipse go to Menu: Help > Install new software


Click on 'Add'

Enter ADT-Plugin in the first field

And https://dl-ssl.googl...ndroid/eclipse/in the second klik 'Ok' ...


Takes a while to download.


Once downloaded you have to check the Development tools check box and click Finish.


Check the API versions you want to support (14 - 21 is save to support most smart phones).

Menu: Windows > Android SDK Manager


And setup a device to test your apps.

Menu: Windows > Android Virtual Device Manager
