#105788 Jobs and stuff

Posted by Assel on 24 July 2017 - 06:52 PM

I work as a mechanical engineer and am a mechanic with all my heart.
Because of the work I travel a lot in the world. So far I have been to Romania, Hungary, France, India, Spain, South Korea and in the USA / Mexico in September.
I love my job.
In my spare time, I repair everything that my family and friends bring me.
From mobile phone display to lawnmowers, bikes and cars. In addition, I try to maintain my house and at times create a beautiful garden.
By the way I build PCs as desired along and try the elderly, especially my father (77) to teach how to use the PC.
Aaahhh and I am passionate mountain biker.

#104615 Scan program

Posted by Assel on 31 May 2017 - 05:27 AM

Tiiihhiiihihime was on my side, yesterday.

Okay, stop that creepy singing.


I have tried XSane with the multipage function and it works very good. This drop-down menu I have totally overlooked...

Also I have tried Simplescan but the look and feel is nothing for me.


The procedure with scanning  page by page and combining it after is a great hint too but it takes a lot of time. I will keep this in mind.


Now going to the second step and try to find a OCR software which can "read" this ancient font cause I can only read 50% of it.


Thanks a lot.

This looks like a lot of work. Just as you always describe it.
But to find the inner peace in the evening and to look at what one has done the day is invaluable.


If ever I should be near, I'll come over and mow the lawn with the tractor. :D

#104091 Cellphone not detected in Bodhi

Try the Sunflower Commander. I have had good experiences with my phone.

#101931 rare cd's need to transfer to HD and then burn to cd/dvd's for security

Posted by Assel on 24 November 2016 - 06:33 AM

Yes, ripperx is very good but sometimes the cddb query is not exactly, especially with samplers are many errors.
Lately I have ripped  a lot with Deadbeef. It is easy to use and the result is very good.

And you don't have to install all the KDE libs as you need for k3b.

Give this a try.



It is a Google-free  Android Community OS.

You have to flash your phone but it is quite easy to do.

#93565 Default File Manager for Bodhi 3.1.0

Posted by Assel on 04 August 2015 - 05:43 AM

-- selecting a file and pressing F3 shows a preview of that file. This preview works for pics, html, and txt files so far. Which could alleviate the need for a thumbnail view or not. I am not sure ... but it seems to come in handy.



This "feature" is a standard operation of all "commander"-style filemanagers. But the terminal feature in one pane is absolute cool and very needful for me so that SunflowerFM is going to be my first to use FM.

#90701 Install bodhi before or after ssd?

Posted by Assel on 12 March 2015 - 11:15 AM

I have a EeePC with a SSD in it. I just hit the "Install now" Button and it worked.

No problems during install, so I would wait.

On my Acer Notebook I have had the Problem that Numlockx don't want to start at boot.

I solved it for myself with a little startup-script from here and here .

Hope it helps someone else.


#79329 First Feedback....

Posted by Assel on 31 January 2014 - 09:30 PM

...after half a year of using Bodhi.

Hi there,

first I like to tell a small story from my Linux journey. It starts in 1996 with SuSe/KDE goes to Linux Mint/Mate/Cinnamon, ubuntu/unity, ubuntu/gnome2/3, Xubuntu, Snowlinux/e17 and now i hope it ends with Bodhi and E17.
E17 was the primary goal, because it is the greatest WM i've ever seen and used and i've seen a lot. :)
The first and the second install of Bodhi was a mess with my Acer V3-571g and Hybrid Graphics Adapter (Intel HD4000/NVidia GT630M). First problem was the high temperature of 75°C from the bootup. After installing a bunch of "Laptop-Tools" that doesn't work as good as i hoped, i started reading in several Forums.
Experimenting with Intel drivers, NVidia drivers, no drivers and other stuff i found the Graphic wiki. And all doesn't work and i don't know why. :(
My friend in this time was and is lm-sensors with xsensors.
After a fresh install of Xubuntu i saw that the temperature on this system is at 49-55°C. So i start to compare the systems but found nothing useful for me
(I'm only a user and no programmer or something but always looking for a stable and nice looking system).
After searching and reading about the temperature problems and writing a piece of paper (yes paper with a pencil!) i start a fresh install.

And here is what i did:
- install Bodhi
- apt-get update
- apt-get install lm-sensors xsensors
- sudo sensors-detect
- apt-get dist-upgrade
- apt-get install bumblebee
restart and look what happens....

It works!
It works with a temperature of 49°C.

I don't know what is different to the others installs but know i have the feeling that everything is okay for me.
I haven't tested the optirun things but there is no use for me. All that i want to work for me works great.
Bodhi is a really nice distro with a great implementation of e17!

Really great work!
