I'll be danged, they finally fixed it. I have been using skippy-xd-fix , because for a long while the skippy-xd app wouldn't show minimized apps.  skippy-xd-fix still doesn't work with bodhi. Go figure.

I have added the hopeful last set of potential fixes from upstream into the repo. Please let us know if this fixes the menu-cache issue reported here. It should in theory and it does for me locally on my test machines.


Just run your system updates as normal to install them. Or if you would prefer not to update your entire system the below should suffice:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libmenu-cache3 libmenu-cache-bin

 If these  packages cause any additional issues NOT related to the menu-cache issue please open a new support thread. Thanks for your time and patience.

Thanks Randy  :D But really no need to thanks me. It is all in days work or in this case almost a weeks work. And really the true thanks goes to Andriy who had an interest and motivation to fix an LXDE library which worked fine in LXDE to accommodate changes in EFL and who quickly knew how to modify the menu-cache code based up the errors showing up in my debugging sessions. It would have taken me days if not weeks to get to that level of competency  with that code base. 



Regardless I have always contributed back to Open-source as long as I have been using it. This predates my usage of Bodhi. It is just I am really visible here and Bodhi members of course notice.


Thank Andrly also.
But if not for you getting on this issue, and finding the right LXDE dev, and working with him, this may never have been solved. 
It just speaks volumes about the devs, involved with Bodhi. From the Waiter's constant updating of themes and modules, to Jeff's vision, and work with keeping the distro upgraded, and Charles constant help solving issues, along with all the other quality help from others (sef and who knows, who all else) it made Moksha very possible. And as a user, I know I appreciate it!  This is one outstanding Distro!
And since LXDE is my second favorite desktop, It's win win for me!!
