#104872 EFL 1.19.0 and Ephoto / Terminology 1.0

Posted by Mr.J on 12 June 2017 - 06:23 PM

I have played a little bit with epad and elementary. Great work, congratulations. I have not noticed an issue. It is hard to believe that Bhodi is running on so little ressources but offers that much comfort and eye-catching effects. Really beautiful style. 

 

This is excellent Linux. 




#104823 New Lenovo Ideapad 110S notebook, old Dell laptop dying...

Posted by Mr.J on 09 June 2017 - 04:49 PM

The Lenovo 100/110 series is pretty cheap but trustworthy. I have two and both are running well with Bodhi. My office and text work is joyful. What I like is the little button to be pressed to get into the BIOS settings, where the USB drive is already listed if plugged in. Installation of Bodhi is easy then. Did you delete the OS (likely MS) or did you get your Lenovo without one?




#104651 Bodhi Linux 4.2.0 Relased

Posted by Mr.J on 01 June 2017 - 06:04 AM

Jeff - just burned the 4.1 version.  last dvd i had.  if i install the 4.1 it will update to 4.2 via eepdater yes?

I would like to help. Yes, install 4.1, update via eepdater and then run the following commands via terminal:

-------------------------

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install swami-control

-------------------------

You have to do this to get the swami-control-panel, which is new in the 4.2 release. After that everything is complete, instead of Kernel 4.10. This can be done via Synaptic, if you would like to test it.




#104633 Tentative Bodhi 4.2.0 Discs

Thanks, and that is what I have forgotten to do (to press "enter"). So everything works and as far as I can tell the Bodhi 4.2-iso is running flawlessly. Excellent work. 




#104500 Bodhi 4.x.y in the News

Posted by Mr.J on 25 May 2017 - 06:54 AM

"Reviews" like this are so awful. They lack depth and this one has the gall to close with:
 

 

 

No software is perfect, Bodhi included, but the reviewer doesn't mention hitting any issues and then closes with this blatantly false statement. Really annoying. 

That hits the nail on the head. The final comment in the review ("still a lot of bugs") is not helpful at all. Just an empty phrase. 

 

Anyway, in my point of view yet the opposite is the case. Less is better, in regard to software. Bodhi's minimalistic approach is right and the best advice to be given is: Achieve your goals on computers with a minimum amount of work, i.e. avoid bloated software or superfluous useless knickknack.

 

To be honest, I have had a problem with the installation at first, but meanwhile I suppose it was of my own doing. For some time past all my machines run without errors. Bodhi is a first class operating system. Please keep up the good work.




#104310 Moksha not so stable.

Posted by Mr.J on 12 May 2017 - 07:55 PM

Confirmed in my laptop,

 

switch that off according to DOOMguy stop the freezing. :)

 

but,

 

in my 4.1.0, for some reason the off switch is not permanent, I should manually off it in each login. :(

Whatever the reason might be, if "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade" (terminal) does not help, you might consider a fresh install (?). 

I have to say that Moksha works excellent for me. And there is a pretty huge workload every day. 

I like it that Bodhi is not bloated. Open the taskmanager and enjoy what could be seen there. Just a few tasks, low cpu usage. Excellent and unbeatable. I have tried many distros but this one offers proper feelings. :) 




#104280 Moksha not so stable.

I have had a look and - it is "off" after a fresh install and the very first update. Did you do that, Jeff? Wow, that is support in the truest meaning of the word. This is my distro. 




#104275 This is a "totally boss" system

As written above Bodhi really fulfills my needs. Well done. Great optics and well working.
