#108406 Laptop Recommends?

Posted by BeGo on 20 February 2018 - 11:30 AM

Can anyone recommend a new laptop in the $300-$400 (USD) price range (if there is such a thing), that is compatible with Linux? My sister-in-law needs one. The best thing I know of is to take along a live-usb, with her shopping. But with the usb bugs out there, I doubt anyone will let you try it.

https://shop.amd.com...c3f5b8={"k":""}

 

I trust AMD more than Intel currently. :)

 

No problem so far with my AMD A8 laptop from 2013, other than battery. :)

 

EDIT. Please filter to Your price range Yourself. :wacko:




#107960 Swapping hard drives

Posted by BeGo on 24 January 2018 - 03:29 AM

Hi, guys,

 

Last night I watched an informative video on how to build a PC

 

I've never built a PC by myself before, so I have a question: when I build a PC and install an OS on the hard drive, will installation of the OS make any changes in the BIOS?

 

I am considering the following plan:

 

1. Build a PC

 

2. Install Windows on the HDD (to run photo editing software)

 

3. Take the HDD out and replace it with another blank HDD

 

4. Install Linux on that HDD

 

Linux will be used for daily use, and Windows will be reserved exclusively for photo editing.  Will this work? Part of me says that it should while the other part says that there might be some problems with BIOS or whatever?

 

Maybe someone who has build PCs before can advice?

 

If the answer is that there will be no problem, I will need to find a way to easily swap drives, Are the drives prone to shortcuts with static electricity too? Do I need to ground myself each time when I swap HDDs? Ideally, I would love to have a flip switch to select from which HDD to boot but I am not sure if this solution even exists.

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Val

2nd Randy.

 

The solution is called dual boot.

 

Install Windows in Drive-1, AND THEN* install Linux.

 

The switch itself called grub-2. :)

 

*never install Windows after Linux. :)

OK, keeping good faith,

 

Graphical configuration system? As in, the main control on how the desktop are rendered?

 

That would be EFL (https://www.enlighte...rg/about-efl.md), with either ecomorph or compton as compositor, although that optional. :)

 

But, I never heard the term graphical configuration system in Microsoft Ecosystem either.  :wacko:




#107544 Basilisk Web Browser

Posted by BeGo on 20 December 2017 - 01:03 PM

If you really need it right away, I found these install instructions.

* Disclaimer:  I don't use basilisk, so I have no idea whether or not this will work.

 

https://forum.palemo...hp?f=61&t=17393

Thanks Sef. ;)

 

In that tutorial I found out that Basilisk have an updater internally, so that means extracted version will "grow" without problem.  :)

#105035 Swami Control Crashes with EFL 1.19.1

Posted by BeGo on 18 June 2017 - 05:04 AM

I don't know to tell you BeGo, the errors you are getting imply your install is broken. I am unsure what all is broken, but unless you know I would recommend a reinstall.

 

Also for the record multiple DEs installed can lead to problems, probably unrelated to this issue. But you need to know what you are doing and how it all fits in together to be doing such a thing. I speak from experience there as I used to use multiple DEs all in one install. I don't anymore for the most part and I don't for a reason. I have no great fondness of debugging issues despite my role here on these forums.

 

Another point are you using any PPAs or have you compiled code from source on this machine? Just wondering what broke stuff so badly :(

 

Well, can't be helped.

 

The reason why I use Linux in the fist place is, to be able to endlessly modify my own laptop OS (which also means getting shot in the foot several times). 

 

Forgive me. :D  :D  :D 

 

I use several PPA,

 

alexlarsson/flatpak #
budgie-remix/ppa #
hsoft/ppa #
jd-team/jdownloader #
marutter/c2d4u #
morphis/anbox-support #
musicbrainz-developers/stable #
nextcloud-devs/client #
nilarimogard/webupd8 #
noobslab/icons #
noobslab/icons2 #

opencpu/rstudio #
papirus/arc-kde #

ppsspp/stable #
samoilov-lex/lumina-desktop #
smathot/cogscinl #
teejee2008/ppa #
ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa #
wfg/0ad #

 

And yes, I am a still in learning developer, mostly develop solutions using Qt, which means I compile tons of codes regularly. :)

 

Please perform your system updates (or at least update swami). Fix should be in the repo now. 

 

I just did, and retry the procedure. Still not working though

I also check the Swami, in Virtual box, creating system mimicking my own, plain Bodhi 4.1.0 that updated with all inside b4main, checkinstall, and unknown, except e21 and component that would uninstall Bodhi desktop. :)

 

Swami run (may be) normally, with lightdm, date and time, keyboard layout, and startup apps showing.

 

OK, my time for re install. ;)

 

Anyway, thanks for You help, Jeff, Ylee,  Charles, and teams!

 

 




#104921 Partition trouble during installation

Posted by BeGo on 15 June 2017 - 02:10 AM

I'll try again, but my experience was that GPartEd within the Bodhi installation routine would not let me do so.

 

 

Uh... gparted? Why gparted? You are trying to select a partition for mount during installation, right?

Why gparted then? That should be through the installer. If you had used gparted prior to installation, you must unmount the partition before doing any installation.

Did I miss something here?

 

NOTE

 

Dear Gohlib, 

 

I think Aivala "does" means the installer partition manager, which does "feel at home" for GParted user.  ;)

 

BACK TO TOPIC

 

I am not sure this would help, 

 

I dependent to https://askubuntu.co...ng-installation for installing Buntus to naughty Lappies and PCs.  :)




#104903 Bodhi 4.1 menu (from desktop) doesn't flip when click on right side of sc...

Posted by BeGo on 14 June 2017 - 01:59 PM

Hmm, we are the only desktop in the world that brings up the main menu where ever you click on the screen, I mean everywhere outside a window or shelf. 

Should we change that as well? 

 

[truncated]

 

Enjoy,

Charles

 

Nope, Moksha not alone. Sorry, Charles. OpenBox also implement this feature. ;)

 

This feature is the very reason why I love Elementary / Moksha Desktop. :D :D :D




#104732 Converting a Ubuntu-based Distro into Bodhi

Posted by BeGo on 04 June 2017 - 04:10 PM

The line you would want to add to your sources file is:

deb http://packages.bodhilinux.com/bodhi xenial b4main

And then install our desktop by running the commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install bodhi-desktop

Note that this is only tested / supported on 16.04 based installations as we only build on Ubuntu LTS releases. I would also recommend trying the latest 4.2 release though as suggested above as it does have a newer kernel than previous versions. Hit any issues let us know.

 

btw, I recommend to try to "Bodhi-fy" the target Ubuntu in Virtualbox first.  ;)

 

that because eSudo tend to break another DE sudo module, making problems in DE like XFCE and LXDE, fom  asking password to change screen brightness, to completely render gksudo useless. 

 

From my previous post,  http://forums.bodhil...-additional-wm/,

 

esudo is needed by apturl-elm, which in turn needed by bodhi-desktop, so technically bodhi-desktop still install esudo automatically.  :(




#104578 Scan program

Posted by BeGo on 29 May 2017 - 03:01 AM

Hello,

 

My father asked me to archive some old documents from his parents. These documents are nearly 80 years old and written in an old german style called Sütterlin.

So, the first problem is that I have to scan some small books. I can scan them page by page but after that I have 20 documents and I want all the pages in one document.

XSane is okay but the time for changing a page is to short to handle such an old document.

 

The final question is: Which scan program are you using and why? :)

 

 

Greetings from Germany

 

One page per session is fine.

 

You can combine it after. :)

#104123 Applications that are not in the App Center

Posted by BeGo on 28 April 2017 - 01:50 AM

Hi, I am new to Bodhi Linux.

I am trying to install some applications that are not in the App Center. For example, I need digiKam, RawTherapee, EFRaw etc.

What would be the way to get them? I tried to install ppa repositories the same way as I would do in Ubuntu but it did not work.

Would someone please help?

Thank you,

Val

 

in Bodhi, ppa aka software-properties-common not installed by default, and just one click in Synaptic away. ^_^
