#103672 Sticky notes module

Posted by The waiter on 19 March 2017 - 10:09 PM

Np here in bl 3.2.1 as well as in bl 4.1. Also tried by Ylee with no troubles. Which version of Bodhi do you use?

#103633 Sticky notes module

Posted by The waiter on 16 March 2017 - 09:51 PM



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:

You need to create a personal app launcher. Nothing hard to do, just try to follow the wiki page about this...

I think the 2nd example is for you (without esudo of course).




If you have any other questions or need more help, feel free to ask.

It has been mentioned here. I prefer installing ntp package...

#103536 How to set hibernate as default in battery meter settings?

Posted by The waiter on 09 March 2017 - 09:33 PM

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.

#103529 Places gadget & Minimize icon

Posted by The waiter on 08 March 2017 - 10:25 PM

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...

We are here for you :)

#103494 All about wine!

Posted by The waiter on 05 March 2017 - 01:37 PM

I can imagine the first bodhi meeting/party at Graywizardlinux's place 😁

#103489 File manager

Posted by The waiter on 04 March 2017 - 09:21 PM

Yes, E file manager was disabled in default installation because of its lack of features. You can use PcmanFM or different FM if you like this way: 

Open "quick launcher (ALT + ESC)" and type "places"

The Places module settings dialog should appear

Check "Use the custom file manager" and enter its name.

Confirm your settings


BTW: Welcome in Bodhi community

#103488 ibar (taskbar panel)

Posted by The waiter on 04 March 2017 - 09:14 PM

If I understand you made shelf transparent?

If yes, try:

1. Menu-Settings-Shelves

2. Select the shelf and press Settings button

3. Go to the Style tab and choose Default style


PS: do not stop explore the Moksha settings. It is the best way how to progress. Of course why not doing it hand in hand with Bodhi wiki...


#103257 Enlightenment and slow laptop

Posted by The waiter on 17 February 2017 - 01:01 PM

Bodhi linux is declared to be a suitable solution for old HW. The details you can find on our WIKI page http://www.bodhilinu...m-requirements/


I doubt you will find the better looking and faster distro around. If yes, let me know please ;)

Anyway the Moksha/E desktop is something which needs some time for getting familiar with. But after some time you will become a Bodhi addict. At least here it happened...:)

#103212 Theme fixing

Posted by The waiter on 11 February 2017 - 10:41 PM

Hello again after some time


I had a taste today to fix another nice theme called detorious theme (bodhi-theme-moksha-detour). 







So, what was fixed...:

  • Systray background 
  • Temperature text 
  • Right mouse click on the shelf for menu popup.


Jeff will add the new package to the repo soon.


Enjoy :)



#103140 [SOLVED] SSD HDD compability on Bodhi Linux

Posted by The waiter on 09 February 2017 - 09:01 AM

1. yes
2. yes
3. yes
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

Just my POV.
I haven't bought it yet :)

#103129 Bodhi Linux : about auto login

Posted by The waiter on 08 February 2017 - 06:30 PM

Hello. You will find it is as a part of Jeff's Swami Control dialog, but you can easily do that with terminal emulator (terminology): 


sudo epad /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf


change this line to:

#103120 Gcompris 0.7 qt

Posted by The waiter on 07 February 2017 - 08:54 PM

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 :)
