#106808 Entrance theme support?

Posted by DOOMguy on 04 October 2017 - 05:21 PM

Entrance themes are no longer supported -- this happened right before e18 started, if memory serves. Moksha makes use of lxdm for logging in. That theme deserves to be ported; it has been ignored for ten years. One login is sufficient for me.

#106789 Where can I download the kernel source to be able to use virtualbox dkms?

What would be cooler would be letting others know how you found it (others could be stuck in the same place you've just been in). Thanks nerdwurks!

#106705 Bodhi VM ethernet bonding LACP not going up

Posted by DOOMguy on 17 September 2017 - 06:32 PM

this is the best my google-fu can do; hope it brings you closer. I was thinking, what if nm were inadequate, how could you proceed. Alas this is beyond my expertise--I hope it's a good lead

#106595 Sticky notes module

Posted by DOOMguy on 08 September 2017 - 07:50 PM

You know I never did quite figure out that "hover" configuration layer, until now. Thanks for the pro-tip with the keybind, too! It's like the post-its can be hidden, until they keybind reminds you that they were 'in your face' all along... :unsure:

#106482 Dual/Multiple monitors - only able to use one at a time?

Posted by DOOMguy on 01 September 2017 - 10:49 AM

No worries; these are enough. Fix it in nvidia control center -- your x,y coordinates for the secondary are forcing a level secondary monitor, when in reality it is raised to the height of your primary. They are not making sense. This is what should be shown for the second monitor


1920x1080+2560+1440 for viewport out. Position for the ancor monitor should be 2560+1440 instead of 2560+0. Absolute is fine, except in this case it is absolutely wrong. It is placed where the bottom left corner touches the upper righthand corner of the Acer/primary. Putting it at 2560+0 throws it out of whack, and programs placed on anything but primary are rendered unusable.


Hit Save to X configuration file. Try Gohlip's suggestion after to get familiar with xrandr, but I prefer you fix nvidia settings first, though I think his xrandr is missing the --position parameter (at first glance). I think it will place the secondary to the right, but not elevate it i.e. there won't be a "lower" or "upper"


The forum will be sufficient for our needs, but it gets messy if you try all things at once. Their assistance is appreciated.


As a test if the nvidia settings are spot-on, try this: for Window placement, select place windows under the mouse, and put the new window or application on the raised secondary. Put a terminology screen there, not maxed, not full screen, and make sure that you can type or right-click on it to select a font or theme (in terminology). If clicking or typing gets no response it can only mean one thing--you're missing something.


Now hit PrintScreen. It would be nice to see, say a browser on one screen and the nyanology theme in terminology, on the other.


Arandr is good, but knowing how to use xrandr is even better, for a guy with dual DVI, it can be your Swiss Army knife. But if you know your Xorg.conf you should be fine; there is a place for specifying the layout. The nvidia control center can fine tune it. All these should sync--the only thing that is absolute should be where (0,0) is; it begins at the lower lefthand corner of the primary screen.

#106357 For your desktop, a lighter background

Posted by DOOMguy on 26 August 2017 - 03:59 PM

Feel free to use this backdrop on your desktop or terminal -- grab it from my online gallery if you wish. The original was split up on two screens, but you can trim and crop to fit your workspace.

Try this, when you right click on that bar, and it shows 'Configure Bar' and you get to pick some of its settings: try checking or unchecking Show mouseover animation and see if it eliminates or reduces the effect. I have to let you know that my detourious screenshot posted on another thread shows some other special effects and they're being displayed by an AMD Radeon graphics card.

#106131 Ejecting media

Posted by DOOMguy on 15 August 2017 - 01:24 PM

Let's get back to the original question, before it became a PCmanfm thread. There is a simpler way, called places. it lets you know when a device can be ejected; or unmounted first. Perhaps you were looking for something like this, with a terminal next to it to see what needs special attention.


The image shows "eject" but other times it would show "unmount".

Was going through the online gallery and it was time to close a loose end, and here is the result. You can view the original dA submission on this page.full_circle_by_shedied-dbjbpy8.jpg

#105719 New User Help

Posted by DOOMguy on 17 July 2017 - 12:53 PM

Oh, msi, eh? That is understandable, but see how far you can encourage the author to provide an installer for linux (can't hurt to ask; you may not be the first to request for one) Or better yet, work with him to come up with your own homegrown version.


And each of us here were all noobies at some point. So ask away, and watch some clips on tips and tricks to make Bodhi uniquely your own, with your own runescape launcher, even.


I watched as the *buntu devs posted replies in their IRC channels, and Red Hat folk helped new users with each new release. Printed out some HOWTOs from tldp.org and put those pages in a binder. But those experts would freely admit that they went through this learning curve too; they would also say that the only stupid question is the one you did not ask.

#105685 4.2.0 Legacy installer crashes on Dell 700M

Posted by DOOMguy on 14 July 2017 - 12:52 PM

If you figure on using it as a streaming device, the wireless NIC that you know of forces me to ask the question--is this undetected device a dealbreaker?


Because as a streaming device, the Dell 700M makes a beautiful boat anchor :)


As I have this peculiar habit of scouring those local ads for abandoned or neglected Thinkpads of the same era I have faced this issue more than once; the installer is not the problem, but merely the tip of the iceberg.


But if it does the job then I guess the landfill will have to wait for something else

#105674 4.2.0 Legacy installer crashes on Dell 700M

Posted by DOOMguy on 14 July 2017 - 01:32 AM

Before you get rid of that other distro you may want to make a mental note of the applications you use quite frequently. This way you'd know what you have to install once you get Bodhi on that 700M. And no, I wasn't laughing.

#105470 Software Simple Scan for Bodhi Linux ?

Posted by DOOMguy on 04 July 2017 - 01:10 PM

The acquire option in GIMP can scan a photograph once your device is hooked up. For that matter it can scan a document and save as PDF. But if Simple Scan can do it, why  not?
