In Topic: black screen with 3.1 live boot

14 August 2015 - 04:46 PM

Hi, I know you are an old pro at these installs, however did you verify the Md5sum? 

Also Jeff mentioned a problem with usb sticks and to use the verify option in the boot menu  in this thread, perhaps it might be helpful?:



In Topic: [SOLVED]Curious conky differences

11 June 2015 - 08:28 PM

From the conky FAQ here: http://conky.sourceforge.net/faq.html


Q: Transparency doesn't work! Why is this and how can I fix it?

A: Conky uses "pseudo"-transparency. What this means is that is not a truly "transparent" window. What it does is read the background of the root window, and changes it's own background to the section of the image it finds. Some Window or Desktop Managers do not set a background to the "real" root background, and instead place it on a layer above the root window. To fix this, you can use an application such as qiv (http://www.klografx.net/qiv/), "Esetroot" which is included with Eterm (http://www.eterm.org), "fbsetbg" which is included with fluxbox (http://www.fluxbox.org), or (my favourite) "feh" (http://linuxbrit.co.uk/feh/).
To set the background using "feh" from your ~/.xinitrc, try the following:

sleep 1 && feh --bg-center ~/background.png &

I have used feh before and it worked well. Perhaps Moksha has the root window set as described above.

This was super cool, thank you for sharing. I just watched it, great interview that showcases some of the best things about Bodhi now, and what is coming up. Awesome!

In Topic: eepDater doesnt run

08 April 2015 - 02:43 PM



I had this exact issue and the fix worked well, eepDater is back in business.


I have no idea how that folder made it into my system and I have added a ton of junk so this probably won't help much. I added quite a bit of stuff not in the bodhi app center. The only thing kevison mentioned as a possible that I have as well is conky. Plus a few themes and fonts.


The plot thickens...

In Topic: My machine is majorly sluggish

05 March 2015 - 06:33 PM

It might be a good idea to try the legacy version which is for older machines and as far as I can tell that is on the lower side on ram. I was running 32 bit on an older machine as well and I ended up ugrading the ram to 2 GB for pretty cheap and now it runs very well. Before I upgraded the ram I was at 512 MB and with lots of tabs open in a browser it could be a bit sluggish.
