Self-help: Error Loading Enlightenment Module After Update

02 August 2015 - 02:34 PM

I had this issue yesterday and Deepspeed helped me with it and asked me to put a self-fix post on the forums.
After running eepDater I received the following error message upon restart:

I had the same error message for the module engage.
It seems the naming can get mixed up on update and the workaround appears to be correctly naming the directory that the module.so file is located in.
The path to the module.so on my system is:


Although on other systems it can be:


A good search to get the correct path is to enter the following at a command prompt:

cd /usr/lib/*linux-gnu/enlightenment/modules 


cd /usr/local/lib/enlightenment/modules

Once you have cd'd into the correct enlightenment modules directory you can ls at a command prompt to see the available directories. One of them should be the module that the error message says can't be found. In my case ecomorph and engage, although it could be any module.

Cd into the correct module and ls to see what directories are located there. There should be a directory that begins with linux-gnu and ends in 0.1.0 in my case it was linux-gnu-x86_64-0.1.0. This directory needed to be renamed to linux-gnu-x86_64-0.17.6 in my case.
A quick way to rename this directory is to use the mv command:

sudo mv linux-gnu-x86_64-0.1.0 linux-gnu-x86_64-0.17.6 

There should be a space between the directory names and it is possible to use Ctl+Shift+c to copy and Ctl+Shift+v to paste in terminology.


This has solved both of my problems. I have intentionally made these instructions usable for people who might be newer to terminal commands, I hope it isn't too long.

Can't Adjust Screen Brightness - HP dv9000t

21 February 2015 - 04:27 PM



I have a not very pressing or major issue that I am hoping someone can give me some instruction on. I have no control over my screen brightness levels with Bodhi 3.0. I have been trying to find a solution to this on my own for quite some time, but so far I have been unsuccessful. 


I have a dual boot with Ubuntu 14.04 and the brightness works great with that install, I can even use the fn+f8 key combo to turn it up. So for now I have it set right and it is no big deal, I am just a curious guy, and would like to be able to change my brightness levels with Bodhi.


I have loaded the backlight module and can move all the sliders with no effect. 


I have tried some of the fixes listed in other forums and none have worked so far. Most dealt with adding some text to the default grub, however in my ubuntu install the grub is exactly like the Bodhi grub and brightness works there. 


I don't know what system specs might be helpful but I am running an older nvidia card with the legacy driver (the brightness didn't work with the stock bodhi driver either) intel cpu HP dv9000t laptop. 


So I like to learn new things and don't really know where to look in my ubuntu install to see what the difference between the two might be. I have noticed on the ubuntu install there are way more files and folders that deal with backlight, most of which I probably don't need, but one of which would probably do the trick. 


Could one of our helpful forum regulars help me out with a little trouble shooting on this issue? 



[Solved] nouveau GPU lockup - Screen Freeze and no keybord or mouse

06 February 2015 - 03:54 PM


I have been trying to get the RC2 release to work on my laptop and a few minutes after login the screen will freeze and the touchpad and keyboard will not work. Sometimes I get an error similar to this nouveau E[ DRM] GPU lockup.

My system is an HP pavilian dv9xxx 2G ram core 2 duo 2.00 and the nividia geforce 7600. Circa 2008 or so.

There seems to be a known problem with this on ubuntu 14.04, however their fixes do not seem to work because they have different tools. The basic idea is to download the nividia driver. I think 304.88 is what is recommended. I have checked this forum and haven't found any walkthrough for this. Can you tell me how to accomplish this? Am I even in the right ballpark with what is possibly wrong with running Bodhi on my system?

The RC2 release is working well for me on my desktop and I would love to have it up and running on my laptop.

Applying e17 themes in Bodhi 3.0 Legacy - Will not apply [Solved]

19 January 2015 - 08:18 PM

Hi, so I have been trying to apply e17 themes to my desktop in Bodhi 3.0. I have used the same process in 2.4 and it worked great with the same themes downloaded from the same source (e17-stuff.org). I import the themes from my Download directory and when I click apply it seems to try and apply it and then it just comes back to the default theme.

I have read as much of the documentation as is available to me now through your links and haven't yet been able to figure this out. A quick web search found the same question posted on a more generic linux forum, however with no answer available.

Is there a different process from 2.4 that I need to follow?
