#104825 New Lenovo Ideapad 110S notebook, old Dell laptop dying...

Posted by SmartDuck on 09 June 2017 - 07:23 PM

$ sudo apt-get install gufw

 

Executed in terminology installs the ubuntu firewall with gui.

 

After installation it is located in menu -> Applications -> Preferences .

Important to setup if you're using public wifi.

Never started the Windows 10 it came with (big privacy and security leak!). Booted straight into the BIOS (FN + F2), changed the settings to boot from USB, disabled all intel settings, rebooted, pressed F12 to boot from USB, repartioned and installed Bodhi. So far everthing works out of the box. I use full hd encryption and firewall.




#104816 New Lenovo Ideapad 110S notebook, old Dell laptop dying...

Posted by SmartDuck on 08 June 2017 - 08:56 PM

My old Dell E4300 is dying. The power supply and battery are shutting down sometimes.

 

So I bought a Lenovo Ideapad 110S-11IBR. You have to adjust the BIOS settings to boot to usb drive and disable some features as secure boot etc. Bodhi runs fine, snappy... typing this item on the Ideapad. For gaming this notebook is a no go and the harddisk is just 32GB something to consider. But for programming, light design work and video editing, browsing, playing minetest or Wesnoth it is fast enough.

#104634 Bodhi Linux introduced in my company

Posted by SmartDuck on 31 May 2017 - 04:49 PM

I work for a company that builds and monitors installations for water transport and refinement.

The IT company that manages our network wanted to throw away 6 MSI systems (1GB memory, Atom 230 processor) we use to give courses in our telemetry software, to old for a update to Windows 10. I've persuade my manager and installed Bodhi! My colleages where suprised :)

#104560 what is bodhi 4 based off of re: ubuntu name/number of version?

Posted by SmartDuck on 28 May 2017 - 03:14 PM

How did you install Bodhi on your systems?

 

Did you create a seperate home partition?

In that case, if you don't format the home partition during install, most settings will be fine after a new installation.

 

Always make a backup before doing something radical to your systems.

 

If you don't have seperate partitions for root, home and swap you have to do a complete fresh installation.

First backup your home including all hidden files and everything else that is importent to you (for example webpages in /var/www/html, settings in /etc ).

Second step is the fresh install. During the installation process of Bodhi choose the option ' Something else' where you can setup the partitions, see: http://linuxbsdos.co...ons-in-linux/2/

Restore your backup to the corresponding directories of your fresh installed system.




#104435 Hello Bodhi, Zagreb calling!

Posted by SmartDuck on 21 May 2017 - 02:25 PM

Welcome bodhi-buddha!

 

...from a Angular, C# and SQL developer...  but lately more into programming with Python.

Bodhi has a nice philosophy and community. I like the simplicity, good looks and doesn't get in the way.




#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?

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

Posted by SmartDuck on 08 May 2017 - 07:54 PM

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.




#104120 Applications that are not in the App Center

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




#104069 farm life

Posted by SmartDuck on 24 April 2017 - 04:13 PM

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.
