#105119 Lock screen unlocks by itself sometimes

Posted by Jeff on 20 June 2017 - 09:48 PM

FYI this should now be solved using the latest EFL version in the stable repos. 

#105017 Swami Control Crashes with EFL 1.19.1

Posted by Jeff on 17 June 2017 - 07:00 PM

Please perform your system updates (or at least update swami). Fix should be in the repo now. 

#105015 e21?

Posted by Jeff on 17 June 2017 - 03:41 PM

I always check on the latest desktops which includes the latest E release to see how they compare to Moksha periodically. This was the first time I'd used Enlightenment in awhile and it wasn't a dumpsterfire of crashes and lockups so I put the package I built into the repos for folks who want to try it.


I spent half a day on it before I grew tired of not having a working systray and lacking modules I use in Moksha. 

#104960 Midair, flash and freezes

Posted by Jeff on 16 June 2017 - 04:04 AM

Clearing settings and reinstalling Midori isn't going to fix issues. It is a light browser that has a hard time with heavier web pages. If you are doing anything complex (especially involving flash) I would recommend installing Chrome or Firefox. 

#104877 Moksha not so stable.

Posted by Jeff on 13 June 2017 - 05:15 AM

I'm just sorry it took me so long to getting around to trying EFL 1.19. Better late than never I suppose.


These packages are in the stable branch now. 

#104867 EFL 1.19.0 and Ephoto / Terminology 1.0

Posted by Jeff on 12 June 2017 - 12:09 PM

I've promoted the EFL packages + Terminology and Ephoto to the main branch. Leaving the Moksha update in testing for now till more people confirm window resizing does not cause lock ups for them. 

#104859 Moksha not so stable.

Posted by Jeff on 12 June 2017 - 02:00 AM

Pretty sure these issues are resolved with EFL 1.19.1 in the testing branch.

#104840 EFL 1.19.0 and Ephoto / Terminology 1.0

Posted by Jeff on 11 June 2017 - 01:03 PM

It looks like I actually missed the latest version - uploading 1.19.1 now so we can be on the latest snapshot. Please test and let me know how it looks. 

#104835 EFL 1.19.0 and Ephoto / Terminology 1.0

Posted by Jeff on 10 June 2017 - 06:09 PM

EFL 1.19.0 and Ephoto / Terminology 1.0 are now in the testing branch. 

Ephoto seems to bring a few good fixes with it. Really a slick application. Outside chance this EFL update fixes some Moksha hangs we have? Please test and let me know if it seems stable for you. 

#104765 ePad 0.9.6 in Testing

Posted by Jeff on 05 June 2017 - 02:03 PM

The word wrap toggle and font selector are really slick and seem to work fine here. Good work.

Don't see any reason here to not promote this to main for more people after using it a bit. 

#104713 Why not upgrades between major Bodhi versions?

Posted by Jeff on 04 June 2017 - 12:45 AM

The actual answer is that unless you need bleeding edge software - there is no rush to upgrade. All Bodhi releases have support for 5 years. I still have Bodhi 3 systems in my house and likely will until they stop running or can't update Chrome any more.


People have this obsession with being on the "latest and greatest" and always insist on "fixing" things that aren't broken. 

#104708 Why not upgrades between major Bodhi versions?

Posted by Jeff on 03 June 2017 - 06:37 PM

Cruise the support forums of Ubuntu and other major OSes that do in place operating systems after a major one comes out. Almost every time you will find countless people with things breaking because of it.


We are a small team and I personally don't want to deal with the complexity of the infinitely many configurations people's computers can be in at the time we do an in place system upgrade.

Also - in the future please consider using a more descriptive topic title. I've edited this one so it is clear what you are asking.

#104700 Converting a Ubuntu-based Distro into Bodhi

Posted by Jeff on 03 June 2017 - 01:15 PM

The line you would want to add to your sources file is:

deb http://packages.bodhilinux.com/bodhi xenial b4main

And then install our desktop by running the commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install bodhi-desktop

Note that this is only tested / supported on 16.04 based installations as we only build on Ubuntu LTS releases. I would also recommend trying the latest 4.2 release though as suggested above as it does have a newer kernel than previous versions. Hit any issues let us know.

#104669 Why not a patreon or tipeee for Bodhi Linux ?

Posted by Jeff on 01 June 2017 - 07:48 PM

We have a $50 yearly membership on the site, but I agree it is kind of ridged.

I maintain a Patreon page for stuff I do outside of Bodhi. Maybe I'll look into setting one up for the project. Doesn't really take that much work. 

#104660 Bodhi Linux 4.2.0 Relased

Posted by Jeff on 01 June 2017 - 01:24 PM

In its current state swami is a tool that gives you a GUI for changing the system date / time and manage lightdm settings. It will do more at some point.
