#106865 The EDI IDE

Posted by The waiter on 10 October 2017 - 07:04 PM

Yes, we have to update EFL, because Elementary at least 1.20 is needed (we have 1.19.1). It looks (according okra (e dev)) the Elementary is now a part of EFL.

Could you tell us how (if possible)? I like the friendly and informative approach on the forum. It could help some users in case of their troubles...

#106832 Where can I download the kernel source to be able to use virtualbox dkms?

Posted by The waiter on 05 October 2017 - 02:35 PM

I admit you are right. I installed VB long time ago and I dont remember details. Just saying some apps require sources...

#106810 Entrance theme support?

Posted by The waiter on 04 October 2017 - 05:34 PM

I don't remember what and when was discussed about the Entrance themes in the past. I was not skilled enough to understand that. Anyway I have found some info I gained some minutes ago:


1. I was able compiling the entrance engine from this link


2. I am not sure where the entrance theme you wish is possible to download. There is no link on the page you have mentioned.

3. After compilation I was able to logging with the default entrance theme, but I lost sound (maybe it needs to add something to the proper permission group. No idea)

4. This is the first time I have tried this theme. Maybe Jeff knows more.





@Jeff: unstable? 

If so, then I recommend change the lightdm-gtk-greeter background or theme according some info on the web. Maybe good start could be here:

It looks like I have found another BlingBling theme source with better (but not perfect) Elementary support. Let me have some time for applying those changes.


DOOMguy: yes the analog clock looks great. I took it from different BlingBling theme. I combined more themes into one project. I found mbert's repository as a good start. 

#106740 Theme fixing

Posted by The waiter on 21 September 2017 - 07:55 PM

Hi guys


The story (as always :) ) : I wanted bring to life some bright themes but unfortunately Angelic theme was buggy and I did not manage its compiling. Then, looking at some more themes, I come across BlingBling theme which was consulted here on the forum a year ago by mbert and Duma users. I liked the theme but after compiling I realized it is the most unfinished theme I have ever seen. Ugly toolbar arrows, no themed run everything and syscon, no digital clock and ugly calendar and many many more. So after 2 full days let me show you the progress in theming:








As usual all commits you can find here:




Enjoy :)



#106700 Excessive CPU useage by menu_cached process

Posted by The waiter on 16 September 2017 - 11:49 AM

Thank you Randy and others for kind words (for Ylee first). I hope I can speak on behalf of the team. Yes, we are very small team and we are doing our best. Must be aware we have our jobs, families and other duties/hobbies. I am also astonished where we get our time and power for this project. Anyway, it is real at this time and space and we are glad we are a part of something which does make sense.

Just have tried the updated packages under EFL 1.20 (last git version). It seems to be solved here :)


Thx Ylee and Andriy

That's why Ylee's title is "King of the Software page" :)

#106593 Sticky notes module

Posted by The waiter on 08 September 2017 - 06:09 PM

Hello after some time in this thread


I must say I hesitated writing these words, because I am ashamed I did not know this. Human is learning whole life :)

Anyway, I am writing from my NTB with BL 3.2.1 and for some reasons I switched to ecomorph mode and realized the nice feature which I want to share with you. It is a hover layer which you can run with some binded key. It's a special desktop layer for adding gadgets. I knew this fact before but I didn't know it is transparent with ecomorph, thus very elegant. On the picture above I showed the weather inside the Sticky Note, which doesn't look very well on the desktop because of its size. Why not to place it on the hover and activate when needed. This is the example:




The way where to bind the key...




I hope it was useful info for you...




PS: need to check how this works with compton on BL 4.x version


EDIT: yes, it is working fine with compton. Follow this link for enabling it:


#106567 Excessive CPU useage by menu_cached process

Posted by The waiter on 05 September 2017 - 05:12 PM

I have just done a small research after a debate with Ylee. I am also able to reproduce the pcmanfm issue in BL 4.3.1. What I did was comparing releases:


BL 3.2.1 - EFL 1.15    /libmenu v.0.5.1   / PCmanFM 1.2.0/ no problem

BL 4.2.0 - EFL 1.18.4 /libmenu v.1.0.1-1/ PCmanFM 1.2.4/ no problem

BL 4.3.1 - EFL 1.19.1 /libmenu v.1.0.2-1/ PCmanFM 1.2.4/ problem


Ylee's suspicion is the EFL could be the culprit. Hard to say. Now we should build the later EFL in hope it could solve the issue


EDIT: just upgraded to EFL 1.20.3, the last git release (I hope I did everything properly) and the issue still here :(
