#103723 Wallpaper selection option for Virtual Desktops fails in 4.1.0-64 on Acer Not...

Posted by birdmun on 24 March 2017 - 09:14 AM

Sorry you moved on. I whipped up a short clip to show how easy it was for me to set individual wallpapers.

#103619 install an executable as a deb would

Posted by birdmun on 16 March 2017 - 06:07 AM

Along with a launcher, you may consider following the concepts that are mentioned in the linked video. Admittedly it is for the arduino ide and is being explained on Ubuntu, but, the concept is the same for other software and other distros.

#103504 Failed to load ldlinux.c32

Given the lack of USB boot, I would imagine your system is too old for UEFI. There are two possibilities that I can imagine. Your bodhi ISO file is somewhat corrupt. You can check the MD5sum to see if you downloaded all the bits/bytes correctly from the source. The other is as has been mentioned a bad burn of the ISO.

For fun, you can always grab https://www.plop.at/...r/download.htmland boot from a USB after that has started.

How to check the MD5 of your ISO https://help.ubuntu....ity/HowToMD5SUM

As you are a newb, you may not realize that a number of issues may be able to be researched by instead of using bodhi to search you look for ubuntu. Bodhi is an Ubuntu derivative.

#103471 Unable to change screen resolution

Posted by birdmun on 01 March 2017 - 10:50 AM

I will admit to being rather ignorant. My suggestion was just an idea. The following link has a suggestion on getting around the xrandr: failed message.




xrandr --output default --gamma 0:0:0 --mode 1200x1000

in particular. I would change the 1200x1000 to 1200x800.

However, I am honestly out of my depths here.

#103240 Unable to change screen resolution

Posted by birdmun on 15 February 2017 - 05:31 PM

I realize the post is marked as solved. I am curious if using --mode 1280x800 with xrandr would get his preferred resolution and then not stick if things went sideways?

#102826 Bodhi - Real Time Kernel?

Posted by birdmun on 23 January 2017 - 12:34 PM

My $0.005 (My lack of knowledge keeps my opinion from being worth the typical 2 cents.). Keep the other kernel for a backup. It is a handful of MB in size. If you don't have the spare space on your system for the other kernel, I would imagine you are in need of more storage space anyway. :)

#102727 Linux noobie

Posted by birdmun on 15 January 2017 - 10:28 AM

If you are a youtube kinda guy, you can realize the base of bodhi is ubuntu and search for some of your issues/questions with ubuntu instead of bodhi. The main difference between the two ignoring the lack of installed apps is the Desktop Environment known as moksha.

The major linux distros have repositories for software. They are probably comparable to app stores. When you search synaptic for games, you will see a whole list of packages. Some of those packages are the game engine and some are the data package required to actually skin the game as well as audio files etc. The packages, if made properly, will also make sure that all of the extra programs/files/libraries are installed at the same time. You will be notified of everything that will be installed as well as how much space will be required to install everything. There are packages in the wild that are not in the repos. If you absolutely need them and you trust the site you are downloading them from, you can install them from the command line. I bet there is a GUI. I just can't think of one at the moment.

As a noob you might consider watching some youtube videos.


This guy did a 30 days of linux challenge and he came out pretty happy compared to windows. His 30 day challenge started around November of 2016.

#102391 Bodhi's "Run Everything" on Ubuntu Xenial?

Posted by birdmun on 30 December 2016 - 08:38 AM

Like Jeff said, you could simply install moksha and before you log in to your system select moksha instead of whichever desktop environment you are currently using. When you finally log in, you will have access to all of your installed applications. I run moksha on an Arch install thanks to Fusion109(?).

#101461 A big thank you to...

Posted by birdmun on 03 November 2016 - 10:56 AM

I'm just glad my words can be of assistance.

I too am thankful for all the effort that goes in to this distro.

That looks really nice.

I believe the clipboard module takes care of that issue now.

#100744 MS blocks linux installs

Posted by birdmun on 22 September 2016 - 02:55 PM

Lucky for you the thinkpad line does not currently seem to be of concern. The articles I have read all talk about something more akin to a Chromebook style computer. Also, one of the articles I read suggested that Microsoft made Lenovo sign an agreement on how the laptops in question would be locked down.

I "believe" this is the info you need. http://mixeduperic.c...-on-ubuntu.html

I can not promise it will work. I only scanned the page to about half way down.
