I want to introduce you my new little project for Moksha/E users. The idea is very simple. I miss something like Sticky note gadget on the screen. I know there are some apps like xpad etc. but I wanted something binded with desktop thus very low in resources. I also wanted it to be transparent with elegant look. I took it as edje layer (edc scripting) introduction which I always wanted to understand and make some code for fun.
Module is based on the skeleton module which needed lots of modifications and fixes.
It is very young project (just 5 days ) which needs some further work. So it has got some limitations. This way I want you to ask for contribution if you are interested.
Module behavior is the same as other gadgets. Actually the best will be show the screenshot:
Good catch Bok. You have found a bug in E/Moksha code. I spent all evening chasing the solution in Moksha source and everything looked correct in e_mod_config.c file where settings dialog is located. Then I found a bug in e_modapi_init function in e_mod_main.c file. The E developer forgot to add a line for suspend_method item thus this item was not added to module.battery config file (btw: located in ./e/e/config/bodhi).
E_CONFIG_VAL(D, T, suspend_method, INT);
I will commit the fix tomorow and will ask Jeff to update moksha package in repository.
Also will make a notice for E devs
EDIT: I hope this selection was not made this way by purpose...
EDIT2. Although now you know where the conf files are located, it is hard to change the values because of special file container.
Do you have a taskbar on the shelf? Apparently not. Go to the shelf content and put the task gadget on the shelf. It should work OK. In case it is not on the gadgets list, the task module is not loaded thus load it under module section.
Taskbar is on the shelf by default. If there is not you have managed somehow removed it...

4. it depends
I have an experience with Bodhi running with SSD (my colleague's PC). After installing which took ridiculously short time, the boot time was shorter than 10 seconds. Overall performance with disc operations is fantastic. I do not know which PC you have but old PC will stay old PC (I mean cpu). Performance related to CPU will be the same. I was also thinking of replacing HDD to SSD, but I had to answer some questions to me...
1. What are my main PC activities? Do I really need SSD HDD?
2. SSD HDD (I wanted to buy) is 4 times less in capacity then current HDD
3. According some tests, SSD discs have shorter lifetime in contrary to standard disc
4. The bigger SSDs are enough expensive and it is not optimal investment to my relatively weak NTB

Hello fathers (or better parents)
Just info for you. If you know Gcompris game collection for your kids and have installed it from repo, maybe you face games freezing or even system freezing. Today I found, there is a new version on the main Gcompris site based on QT, with completely redesigned menu, new games and mainly not freezing. Just tested with my both kids and it worked OK. I had some troubles with installation and running, as the sh file just extract files to some folders and I needed to run app from terminal as a script. I also faced troubles with sounds. After a while everything was OK. If you need more info, just let me know. In the meantime I will look somewhere for deb packages in order to be placed in our repository.
PS: Sweet evening today. I had so much time for myself, lol
