ok -


as an old friend from Sweden used to say - if it is not broke then don't fix it; and if you can't fix it then don't break it!




if have serious issues - try a new install.

( i used appack and removed a couple of things/apps and added the things that i needed.


once i got stuff working; i never messed with stuff.  2 1/4 years totally bodhi linux and no real issues and extremely stable.  no mac for a baclkup either all of this time.  i run 2  thinkpad x series and wife runs a dell inspiron?   


if you really do not know what you are doing don't start deleting stuff that you have no clue what they do.  YOU WILL BREAK IT!!!! 


trust that the stuff that comes with said distro is all needed re: meat and potatoes of the system. you breaky - you screwy.


i need it to work.  this is not a hobby - with down laptops i am messed up big time.  i use them everyday!




i do not always understand in depth what some of the people here have helped me to tweak or get working - i.e.trackpad - but i listen and try to do what they suggest and they always helped tremendously.  



i try to fix  or tweak important stuff - i do not worry about background stuff that is not trivial but also not priority to my issues as such.


better stop.


hope someone reads this stuff - for what it is worth.

you guys can have chicken duty if  you want.  heh heh heh!

#108920 new wine is really niiiiiiice!!!!!!!

actually have a nice fire in the woodstove.  dual pane glass so you see the fire. . yes a lot of hard work.  and so much harder the older and more crippled i get.  That is why i love it so much when the taste time comes!!!!

#108909 new wine is really niiiiiiice!!!!!!!

Posted by graywizardlinux on 11 March 2018 - 06:03 PM

so a report on my new vintage is due - i guess....


i fermented 2 batches and with the overflow of the first batch i ended up creating a new 3rd batch.  all 3 are the best so far re: grapes i grew and wine i made - all using a nice french oak.  the one is very cherry and berry and subtle caramel and touch of spice or licorice too.  2nd is quite pinot noirish with he cherry, berry and caramel and spice - from the french oak.  the  3rd just sampled and again nice pinot =-like taste - smooth and great mouthfeel.  subtle other characteristics.  sorry i have a whole page of comments on the 3 wines.


1.  Mithrandir Red   2. Fangorn Red    3.  Prancing Pony Red


all of the vines have been rough pruned and will be highly fine pruned within the next 2 weeks.


not a lot of bottles but the Quality is very nice indeed!




#108874 Firefox or Chromium - how to install these app's under Bodhi Linux?

Posted by graywizardlinux on 10 March 2018 - 06:36 PM

use synaptic package manager.  or appcenter - but you have issues with isnatll from appcenter.


maybe do a clean install as jeff and I have suggested

#108872 Problems with AppCenter - installation error

Posted by graywizardlinux on 10 March 2018 - 06:33 PM

maybe you are a beginner and so am i - but - you seem to be making things way to hard and complex for yourself.  i know i was lost when i first stated and still know zippo for command line stuff; but my initial bouts with linux going back a long time now were wireless and printer issues, and also some user questions.


heck of it was = for the folly of it = just to make sure


the installation errors - never saw before. so do not know.


i have had a few install errors with multiple laptops and multiple distros over the years. sometimes worked first time and sometimes took a time or 2 to get it installed correctly/



your hyothesis......well.....



i run live cd to check wireless and a couple of things before installing.  i also set wireless and presentation mode ----- wireless makes installing with updates easier and is recommended except as stated in bodhi last i knew,  presentation so your screen doesn't go blank on you during install.


re: you other thread for installing - use appcenter or if hassles then synaptic package manager is the way.



once again you seem to be getting bogged down with stuff i never did myself....and believe me and ask others here i did ask for help and i DO know minimal.  your dynamics seem to be extreme from my experience.  good luck

great!  enjoy bodhi!




#108813 Problem printing jpg files

Posted by graywizardlinux on 09 March 2018 - 04:53 PM

you need to check the printer and then make sure you have the drivers and the n setup the printer on your computer.  you should not need gimp to print - to edit - that will work.  i print a jpeg in any of my folders - i.e.my bottle labels for my wine - no problem.  i insert them into writer in LO and print a whole page or three of labels.
