In Topic: Failed installing Bodhi-desktop on top of XUbuntu 16.04

13 April 2017 - 01:50 PM

I fully understand the issue and repercussions, and I don't like to 'strong arm' an installation like this.  But, in this case, the only file affected was the color.lua duplication, so no worries.  I will pull libefl and all dependencies though.  My question is, how did this bug creep in, in a matter of 3-4 days?  And, will it be fixed for next time?  The reason I am having to used this repository is because the current live Bodhi iso won't install on an Asus ROG Crosshair Vi Hero motherboard with an AMD Ryzen 1800X processor.  The install stalls right after asking about downloading updates while installing, where it is examining the installation tartget. 

 

The bug you are seeing is because you told your system to install the EFL pacakges from the Ubuntu repos - don't do that.

Using options like that can get your system into a nasty state just running regular upgrades.

Do as you will with your system, but those warning are there for a reason.

You need to remove the libefl and all related packages it pulled in. This is the older EFL package from the upstream Ubuntu repo and it conflicts with out EFL package as stated by your package manager.

Something I intended to do but never got around to was making it so when you toggled word wrap on it simply turned line numbering off. 

In Topic: Lock screen unlocks by itself sometimes

Those settings won't change this (at least they shouldn't in theory). The lock screen uses the same EFL technology that the popups use that are causing crashes.

 

Honestly - I don't have the exp with C to chase down this issue without spending a lot of time. It could be an issue in the Moksha source itself or in the upstream EFL release, most likely the latter since this was not happening in previous Bodhi releases - but it doesn't make this any less frustrating.
