#108140 Installing Pale Moon

Posted by auro on 07 February 2018 - 01:59 PM

Hi there!

I've removed Midori and been using Pale Moon on Bodhi since September 2017

You could use the installer, but I've used this ppa, https://software.ope...ackage=palemoon

 

Adding the ppa,

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/xUbuntu_16.04/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/palemoon.list"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install palemoon

adding the repo key to apt,

wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser/xUbuntu_16.04/Release.key -O Release.key
sudo apt-key add - < Release.key
sudo apt-get update

#108086 Basilisk Web Browser

Posted by auro on 02 February 2018 - 09:46 PM

@BeGo

I've removed Midori and use Pale Moon as my only browser. Been looking at Basilisk also... if you want to take it for a spin, just download the tarball and place it somewhere in your home directory. Now, in that directory run

tar -xvf basilisk-latest-linux64.tar.bz2

cd into the newly created directory and run

./basilisk

That's it!

Regards




#107862 Meltdown and Spectre

@Charles

Just reporting back here! I've now installed the patched kernel 4.13.0-26, as well as Intel's microcode found here http://ftp.us.debian...md64-microcode/

Purged the "old" 4.13.0-21 and everything is running fine. Hp elitebook, Intel i5 with 12Gb RAM

 

Now, I just have to find a solution for my, no longer supported Samsung S5...

 

Regards and thank you all!

 

EDIT: Wrong link above, sorry. That one is for AMD

Here is the one for Intel, http://ftp.us.debian...ntel-microcode/




#106986 Bodhi Legacy: browsers problem

Posted by auro on 24 October 2017 - 09:36 PM

Pale Moon does have a non-official build that supports non sse2 cpu's. Have a look at https://forum.palemo...pic.php?t=13530

I'm on 64bits and can't test this, but I do run PaleMoon and it works just great 😊


#106463 Kernel update

Thanks bob!

 

The 4.10.0-21 is working fine and I got everything under control. So, maybe you're right... don't fix it if it ain't broken!




#106346 All sorts of newbie questions

Posted by auro on 25 August 2017 - 10:10 AM

@Charles

 

You are right... :wacko: !

Didn't realized I had switched the order :o

It should be...

sudo apt-get remove --purge <packagename>

...as you wrote and not --purge remove.

Sorry about that, too early in the morning :(

 

Although, I always use remove --purge, then I'm sure that any eventual configuration files are also gone.




#106081 Bodhi security (apparmor)

Posted by auro on 12 August 2017 - 09:53 PM

Hi there!
You only need apparmor if you are running a server. If not, you can remove it, that will slightly improve your boot times.

Regarding the firewall, just run

sudo ufw enable

Thanks!

Just sharing in the event others would find it useful. Also some positive feedback is always nice.




#105988 Printing on Canon MG6300-series

Posted by auro on 07 August 2017 - 08:30 PM

Congratulations Bodhi team!
Reading through the internet sounded like this would be a pain, but getting my home printer (Canon MG6350) to work was very easy.

Just downloaded and installed Printer support from the AppCenter and restarted cups service using

Code:
sudo systemctl restart cups.service


Done!
Printing almost out of the box.
Great work.


#105870 Bluetooth streaming audio

Posted by auro on 01 August 2017 - 05:57 PM

Thanks!

 

It worked perfectly!

 

pavucontrol is not needed, it's enough with the steps

 

Code:

sudo apt-get install bluez pulseaudio-module-bluetooth

 

service bluetooth restart

 

sudo apt-get install blueman

 

reboot
