Topics I've Started

Sticky self-hiding shelf

22 October 2016 - 12:53 PM

On my desktop I've moved most of the controls on the bottom shelf (Start, Pager, Clock, Pulse Mixer, Clipboard, System) to an invisible, auto-hiding shelf in the middle of the left edge of my screen. Now and again this shelf gets stuck in the revealed position. In a similar vein, left clicking the clock module on this shelf won't always display a calendar. Sometimes the calendar won't display when the shelf is stuck, but it also sometimes won't display even when the shelf  functioning properly. When stuck clicking on any of the other items on the shelf always brings up the relevant menu boxes. It's trivial to temporarily fix either problem requiring only a "reset Moksha," but slightly annoying that the fix isn't permanent. I've also noticed that occasionally the order of items on the shelf will change. Again it's trivial to move them back into the desired positions, but a little annoying that they won't stay there.

Engage problem after Beta update

10 October 2016 - 08:35 PM

After installing the Beta update via apt-get, deleting the contents of ~/.e, and restarting I found that I could no longer load the engage module. If I chose to load it in the module settings dialog it would return:


There was an error loading the module named: engage

No module named engage/linux-gnu-x86_64-0.2.1/module.so

Could be found in the module search directories


Examining /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/enlightenment/modules/engage I found that the final directory was named:




I changed the final zero to a 1 ( mv linux-gnu-x86_64-0.2.0 linux-gnu-x86_64-0.2.1) re-deleted the contents of ~/.e and on re-start found I could now load an operational engage module.

Exterminator Problem

25 September 2016 - 06:43 PM

I tried installing Exterminator using Appcenter. Appcenter said it installed, but it never showed up in menus. Examination of /usr/bin showed no binary and examination of /usr/share/applications showed no .desktop file. I downloaded the .deb file from b4main and installed with gdebi. Program installed with files in places they were missing above as well as a Python dependency. Exterminator shows up in menus and opens, but never displays a list of running programs. Visual blob just keeps runnung back and forth across program window.
