#103898 Failed installing Bodhi-desktop on top of XUbuntu 16.04

Posted by Jeff on 11 April 2017 - 07:32 PM

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.

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.

#103551 Item missing from main>settings menu

This sub menu was removed by design in the Bodhi 4.1.0 release when we simplified the main menu. You can reenable it in the settings panel under advanced:

Does it work if you create the drive using the dd command as opposed to unetbootin?

And LXQT. And Openbox.


LXQT isn't a stable release / will eventually just be LXDE when it is stable. Openbox is just a window manager not a desktop and I don't consider it major or feature rich like Moksha and others.

#103319 nm-applet logs

I cannot agree. Whenever I install new applications (pdf viewers, office stuff or media players) this error persists. It is app-independent error and should be debugged at system-level.


If you are getting this error with every application it is an issue with your system. As I mentioned - check system health. We only support / test in virtual box so YMMV with other tools such as hyper V. All these things work fine in virtual box.



So why the hell it is still there? What is the use of debug message which brings no useful info?


Because it is harmless so it is low priority. Bodhi doesn't pay my bills or anyone's bills for that matter. It is a labor of love. If an issue like this is something you really need fixed / removed before our folks get around to it feel free to submit a patch yourself or sponsor someone to do it. As is the work that puts food on the table for my kids always take priority. 

#103258 Transparency with ibar and ibox: how?

Ahh yea - left over settings from e19 could cause any end of issues. You very much should nuke your `/.e folder and start fresh.

#103213 [Solved] Moksha Segfault

The Moksha package in the repo as of today will now no longer display window geometry on screen regardless of settings until we can pin down the cause of this crash.

#103193 Lock screen unlocks by itself sometimes

Posted by Jeff on 10 February 2017 - 07:14 PM

I believe this issue is actually related to this crash that is causing most of our other headaches in this release: http://forums.bodhil...oksha-segfault/

Basically popups are causing the desktop to dump and the lock screen is basically a giant popup. The desktop crashes, which causes an auto restart, which removes the lock screen.

It is definitely an issue with Moksha and not your drivers / hardware.

#103171 Unwanted desktop icons

Posted by Jeff on 10 February 2017 - 12:14 AM

No worries and never feel dumb for asking more questions - we are here to help.


Not to mention we know some of those menus are a bear to navigate. At some point we will get them all rewritten.

Have you have added a new source, left click on it so it his highlighted and then select "setup" to select launchers for it. Don't forget to apply after making changes :)

Right click on your ibar and go into settings. Create a new source for the ibar you want to display different icons. By default all ibar use the same applications source file:
