#106178 Stop Ibar flicker

Posted by DOOMguy on 17 August 2017 - 09:48 PM

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

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?

#105429 Classic Bodhi

Posted by DOOMguy on 01 July 2017 - 02:56 PM

the 'search' button in synaptic is IMHO the equivalent of apt-cache search, and you can decide what to do from the results. Just don't forget to hit the Reload first

e16.999.71001 is e17.


I know what e16 is, and why it stands on its own. (It is worth erm, investigating--that seems to be the word I'm looking for.) There will be new things it cannot handle like dbus or flash capable browsers but have a look at this screenie to see what hacks even e17 is now missing:

#105402 I have an idea for an Arduino project but need to know if it's feasible

Posted by DOOMguy on 30 June 2017 - 01:07 PM

I'm still figuring out what should happen if the person leaves their phone in the car though.


This is a problem for another time (or another thread)


It is important to stay focused on the original purpose of this project. Once you go off on a tangent, you will experience what other projects have been through. I have heard of terms like feature creep, bloat, and so on. Right now, we will stay on Don't leave the baby in the car!

#105208 Hello from old (Linux) new (Bodhi) user.

Posted by DOOMguy on 23 June 2017 - 07:24 PM

Well give it a try. Welcome to Bodhi! 

#105057 Show your Bodhi stuff!

Posted by DOOMguy on 18 June 2017 - 04:21 PM

Hmmm must get to the Netherlands to get that special color Bodhi T-shirt


Then I should stand in front of that famed tree in South Carolina.

#104987 How to install software from appimage

Posted by DOOMguy on 16 June 2017 - 04:55 PM

Then aren't they just binaries?

Exercise caution, make sure it is coming from a trusted sourrce, etc. so that in the end your computer does not get '0wned' by folks with a different agenda.


There is a good reason that there are deb packages, and solid reasons why Debian stands where it is today. They are not known for taking shortcuts. But I am DOOMguy, not Chicken Little.



At least you heard the advice directly from the application devs. Let them know of your progress, with digikam on Bodhi. If a similar app like vlc or mplayer can work with it, there's no reason why digikam won't--good luck
