#105729 Theming package dependencies

Posted by Charles@Bodhi on 18 July 2017 - 01:55 PM

Hmm, I don't know what you used to get that list. It seems to me that those are packages that depend on lightdm (aka as Reverse Depends)  and not the list of packages lightdm depends on. Only two of those packages are installed on a default bodhi-linux, the bodhi-lightdm-theme and lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

As stated in the above post:

Only two of those packages are installed on a default bodhi-linux, the bodhi-lightdm-theme and lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings.

All others are not!

I would leave them as they hardly take space and you may need to login through lightdm one day.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

 

PS. Next time you need details on a specific package use

apt-cache showpkg packagename

It is quite complete and states Revers Depends and dependencies in a clear way.

#105684 4.2.0 Legacy installer crashes on Dell 700M

Posted by Charles@Bodhi on 14 July 2017 - 12:37 PM

Ah, good news maybe. 

Forget my updates above. You are using a 32bit on a laptop and in that case you need a package that is not in the ISO you have. 

Install the package upower in the live-session and the installer will no longer crash.
You will need to install this package in your hdd installation too afterwards.

sudo apt-get install upower

I am glad I could force the same crash on a machine here and debugging showed me a missing file. But the installer did not even start, just stalling some time. But it worked after installing this.

I'm very curious about the exact Bodhi version you are dealing with. Please let me know. We had this issue once in the past and later releases had upower installed by default afaik.

 

Enjoy,

Charles




#105671 4.2.0 Legacy installer crashes on Dell 700M

Posted by Charles@Bodhi on 13 July 2017 - 08:07 PM

Hello and welcome to the forums.

 

Could you give some more information using the terminal?

free

This will tell me the amount of memory and swap available as the installer uses a lot of RAM.

 

Now start the installer in debug mode:

gksudo ubiquity -d gtk_ui

If that produces any output please post it here.

After it crashes can you perform the following:

sudo cat /var/log/installer/debug

and copy/paste that here.

From what you are telling so far I have no clue what's going on.

 

Oh, and please tell me if you have more applications open when calling the installer.

 

Enjoy,

Charles




#105653 Classic Bodhi

Try

sudo lshw -short

to get an overview of your hardware.

 

to get detailed info about a specific type of hardware

sudo lshw -c name-of-class

replace name-of-class with the class as provided by the first command, p.e network

 

Don't copy/paste things blindly. READ FIRST and UNDERSTAND.

I wrote: replace name-of-class with the class as provided by the first command, p.e network Doesn't p.e. stand for "per example" in your language?  I was referring to the first command in that post which provided the classnames, like birdmun clearly explained in post #33. I'm not going to do that again. Those classes were in the lshw outcome you just posted but you seem to have missed the column headers completely. Again, read it all and don't skip parts of it.

 

Oh, I have added code tags to your post to make the lshw outcome look like on your display. 




#105641 Simple update to system

Posted by Charles@Bodhi on 11 July 2017 - 04:23 PM

Hmm, you can, but you must do something in advance. That is correcting your bootloader. Because the latest grub is valid and you plan to remove that OS you will have trouble.

 

Reboot and choose the older installation to boot in, probably not the one on top in grub. Once booted open a terminal and give the following commands:

sudo grub-install /dev/sdX  #( replace the X with the letter of your main HDD, probably sda)
sudo update-grub

Now it is safe to remove the partition with the new installation and reassign the free space to something else.

After removing the partition you should rerun

sudo update-grub

to clean the grub from the no longer existent OS.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

@graywizard

Commands very rarely start with a capital character, please use lowercase.

#105455 Software Simple Scan for Bodhi Linux ?

Posted by Charles@Bodhi on 03 July 2017 - 01:06 PM

Maybe this will work for you.

 

When you want to do a test ride with it use

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends xsane

to avoid getting gimp, cups and more pulled in.

 

Enjoy,

Charles




#105451 Bodhibuilder problem

Posted by Charles@Bodhi on 02 July 2017 - 11:41 AM

Hmm, not exactly a helpfile. But there is a manpage though it does not provide the info you are looking for now.

 

In the GUI you should open the tab for "Settings". Hold your cursor above the input box after "Files to exclude" and a text will appear with directions on how to use that inputbox. Same goes for the lines beneath that.

 

Every specification you fill in on the settings tab will be used during the session. Next session you will be back to the default though and you need to fill in this info again.

 

Hope this helps you enough.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

#105445 Clipboard Module

Posted by Charles@Bodhi on 01 July 2017 - 08:31 PM

Removing the gadget makes it less useful but if the module is loaded it still works.

If you go to a website and copy 3 separated links (1 by 1) from there they all go to the clipboard. With the gadget you can determine which one gets pasted where by clicking on the gadget and select an entry. Without the gadget you can not make a choice.

 

Be brave and try things like this. It is so much more satisfying finding an answer all by yourself. You are smart enough.  ;)




#105443 Clipboard Module

Posted by Charles@Bodhi on 01 July 2017 - 07:47 PM

so does this solve the problem?  also will this be in a future update?  may download it later and try to get settings working and see what happens.

 

Thanks guys!

 

Why download? It is part of the default moksha and the gadget is in the shelf. Maybe you de-activated it. If so just load the module again in the settings and add the gadget where you like it. It will be updated to the latest version every time you update your system.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

all you need now is your '57 chevy!

 

A nice alternative, '57 is a bit too old for me.

Yeah, those were the days.

 

But do you remember how often you had to redo your desktop after an E-update? 

Engage, I wish it was still around and working, a floating "shelf" I loved very much.
