Meltdown and Spectre

10 January 2018 - 01:34 PM

I have not seen any post here in the Bohdi forums regarding Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. But these can't hardy have been missed by everyone here, right?




Anyway, Ubuntu is of course aware of it, https://insights.ubu...ulnerabilities/

and so it's the upstream, http://kroah.com/log...eltdown-status/


Ubuntu released the KTPI patched kernels a few hours ago, https://wiki.ubuntu....ctreAndMeltdown


So, the question here is, how to I get the patched kernels on this Bodhi machine? Currently running 4.13.21 installed through Synaptic.


Midori browser

Just noticed that the last version of Midori is from May 2016.
That's some time ago, does it mean the project is no longer alive as suggested by Wikipedia?

Kernel update

31 August 2017 - 07:18 AM

Cheers Bodhi team for the new release, I'm now on Bodhi 4.3.1!


...but, I'm still booting the 4.10.0-21-generic kernel. Shouldn't it be on the 4.11 series?


Should I update-grub? Followed by autoremove and autoclean to purge the older kernel?



Printer Support

10 August 2017 - 06:46 PM


I got Printer Support package from the AppCenter and I'm quite happy with it, got my Canon MG6350 printing. Although, I would like to know what packages are included in that?

There is a new item on my menu, namely ImageMagick (display Q16) showing twice in the menu. The annoying thing is that my photos open in it be default, instead of as previously with EPhoto.

Do I need this for the printing? Can I remove ImageMagick and if so, how?
If I type imagemagick in the terminal it says that it's not installed, although we already know it is...


EDIT: So, I figured out that this package is needed for printing. But, why is it showing twice in the menu? How do I remove one of these two entries? Also, can I do something so my photos open in EPhoto per default as before?

Printing on Canon MG6300-series

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

sudo systemctl restart cups.service

Printing almost out of the box.
Great work.
