#105707 Several issues after each try of Bodhi installation

Posted by Jeff on 16 July 2017 - 01:04 AM

The "enlightenment file manager" does not exist in Moksha. We removed what E17 had when we forked because it was unfinished and there are plenty of light weight GTK file manager that are less buggy and more functional like PCManFM that we ship with by default. 

 

Edit: It looks like there is still a /usr/bin/enlightenment_filemanager file installed with Moksha still, but it doesn't launch anything and that is by design. If I get time I'll clean that up at some point. 




#105557 Where is Apache-OpenOffice?

Posted by Jeff on 07 July 2017 - 04:38 PM

Bodhi package will automatically install desktop integration now. 




#105508 Where is Apache-OpenOffice?

Posted by Jeff on 05 July 2017 - 01:23 PM

The appcenter should now work for installing open office. Sorry for the confusion and thanks for reporting the broken link. 




#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.
