Posted by The waiter on 16 March 2018 - 04:22 PM

We have our E/Moksha solution for wallpapers changing on my github. It is called slideshow. Unfortunatelly it is not in repository. Anyway if you fail with your solution let me know and I will create slideshow deb package for users.

Arc-dark theme battery text has been fixed. Be patient and after some time upgrade your system. New theme version will be upgraded.


@Jeff, could you update arc-dark theme please?

Hello happy new user :)


I will answer your second question.




In this link you will find the useful info for you. For now, switch to MokshaGreen theme where I scaled the battery font. If your indicator is still small on the shelf, just put the battery gadget on the desktop as you can see on the picture.

#108910 Pure Bodhi Linux has installed more then 1.000 packages - what for so many?

Posted by The waiter on 11 March 2018 - 06:13 PM



I have just seen some of your posts on the forum. You are new here, I respect it, anyway let me tell you we are very friendly community offering quick and useful info for every new user. We prefer a polite atmosphere. Please try to accept this approach and you will see you'll appreciate it...

#108907 Pure Bodhi Linux has installed more then 1.000 packages - what for so many?

Posted by The waiter on 11 March 2018 - 05:50 PM

Bodhi is supposed to be very bare distribution. We do not want to force people with the SW we think is best. User knows what he wants. Although Bodhi brings only few apps with GUI like Midori, ePad, ePhoto, there are tens of applications or just little programs which can be run from the command line and have no graphic user interface. In case you install any new application, it downloads and install some dependecies which are required. For example when I install a KDE app, it will install tens of KDE libraries and other stuff. In case your choice is QT app, count with large QT libraries dependencies. Is your list the list just after fresh Bodhi installation, or you already installed something extra although you mentioned it is a pure installation?


Actually I did not answer your question: Why so many? This question is more related to our distro leader Jeff. I think he simply wanted them in the distro and considered them useful :) Lets wait for his explanation...

#108904 Screenshot Module Bug?

You are not wrong. I set it to 100. Maybe I have too powerful machines so I did not catch the fact, the pictures opening take much time. I fully agree, the Bodhi is aimed to work well for new as well as old PCs. I will change the default value to lower number.

#108859 wierd UI behaviour with eepDater

Yes, nobody fixed it :)

#108858 E menu right side hack

Posted by The waiter on 10 March 2018 - 10:26 AM

I agree with Deepspeed. BL 4.5 was aimed to solve the security issues. Our moksha and other new fixes or features are planned to BL 5 but there is not a big deal to have it anytime we want. It is just a matter of updating and upgrading.


As far as the hasty pace is concerned. We (devs) have a development channel or just communicate each other different way about the issues or plans. After some months we know our profiles and we know what we can do. I can speak for myself and last two months I was just on a good wave thus successful in some moksha fixes or enhancements. The only reason of doing it is I like looking under the hood and understand how things work. The side effect is tons of my bugs (I am still a pure newbie) but maybe I can help some people to have fixed bugs or make new stuff for community :)


This way I want say a big THANK YOU to my "pen friend" (lol) Robert (ylee) for leading me in my steep? learning curve and motivating me to another work for the community.



#108768 Screenshot Module Bug?

Posted by The waiter on 07 March 2018 - 08:36 PM

Hello there


The fix of my baby commited :) Maybe I will ask ylee to make another moksha deb for great testers as Deepspeed is. Or you are able to install from source?



#108754 Screenshot Module Bug?

Posted by The waiter on 06 March 2018 - 10:55 PM

Thx for another test Deepspeed. No energy left after a hard day for fixing. I will look at it later. If I remember the quality slider was tested but I admit there are more combinations of using the shot module which I apparently don't use. It was the case of the duplicity issue. I never use print screen button for this purpose.

#108745 Moksha updates

Posted by The waiter on 06 March 2018 - 07:38 PM

Moreover, we are working with Robert (Ylee) on another fixes and improvements.


1. Notification dialog fix made by Robert. Original E/Moksha notification did not work properly so it was replaced with notify-send command. Unfortunately it is not ideal for the moksha pulsemixer volume info and my next usage in the other modules. 

State of the fix: ready for packaging and testing in pulsemixer module.


2. Notification alert for full disk I am working on. Moksha can do a lot of unpredictable and really weird things when the partition is full of data. Unfortunately there is no alert for this state. I also asked the main E developer and he told it isn't applied in any newer E releases. I decided to put this code to the places module which is loaded by default in Bodhi releases.

State of the feature: in progress



#108720 Screenshot Module Bug?

Posted by The waiter on 05 March 2018 - 10:10 PM



The bug solved. A stupid little bug inside the code. Sorry for that. I did not test all possibilities...


Thx again for the catch





#108704 Screenshot Module Bug?

Posted by The waiter on 05 March 2018 - 07:48 AM

OK, I take a responisibility for this one. In the last moksha release I merged old and new style of grabbing pictures. Anyway you have a screenshot module setting dialog to choose one of those styles (Show full screen dialog item). Thanx for your response though. I like the testing period is useful :) I will have a closer look at it. It shouldn´t be so difficult to fix it...




BTW: I am happy you like my Stickynotes module. The places module I used for a learning purposes. That is why they look so similar :)



#108667 Moksha updates

Posted by The waiter on 02 March 2018 - 12:22 PM

I will repeat already mentioned fixes for new moksha you can focus and test for us:


  1. Desktop icons
  2. Systray gadcon container fix (default theme)
  3. Long items menu fix
  4. Right click on the desktop for submenus view to the left
  5. Screenshot module legacy style
  6. Color dialog value fix
  7. Add 'always on top' key/mouse bindings
  8. Application Error dialog simplification
