    aeonius, the lord high webbernet master of the Bodhi said it shouldn't be too hard to manhandle things to be more Bodhacious, but he is presently super busy impressing some girl or other and will get to it as time allows.

    Enjoy the music Norman. I have also Cantons, the shelves speakers at home. Anyway I will show you how I rescued my "new" speakers. 35 years old TESLA speakers which should go to the garbage bin. In the kindergarden where my son goes the teachers wanted get rid old stuff like speakers, gramophones etc. I saved 4 sets of gramo + repros. I replaced capacitors in crossways, filled the interior with new insulation (vateline) and covered. I think the new design is not so bad. The sound is also decent.

    Yeah, it did To get e_dbus running and installing correctly one needs the right PKGBUILD, which I'll drop here in case someone else might need them. It's a bit hacky, though. e_dbus: pkgname=e_dbus pkgver=1.7.10 pkgrel=1 pkgdesc="e_dbus" arch=('i686' 'x86_64') url="https://git.enlightenment.org/legacy/e_dbus.git" license=('Custom') depends=('dbus') provides=('e_dbus') source=("https://git.enlightenment.org/legacy/e_dbus.git/snapshot/e_dbus-$pkgver.tar.gz") sha256sums=('SKIP') build() { cd $pkgname-$pkgver ./autogen.sh \ --prefix=/usr \ --sysconfdir=/etc make } package() { cd $pkgname-$pkgver make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install } So, now I'm off playing with my new toys

    Been messing with the looks and will push the changes live. It's by no means perfect, but at least it's Bodhi coloring. Will put more effort into it when I am less busy impressing some girl.

    @vvkozmenko The world is very aware of the great contribution made by the UK and the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote the teaching of computer science in schools. I also love the UK curriculum for computer sciences, it is not a sell-out to benefit private corporations, and I believe is perfectly in line with the ideas of the article previously referenced: The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-computing-programmes-of-study/national-curriculum-in-england-computing-programmes-of-study In Escuelas Linux we have the fortune to serve to this very same purpose for 187,135 registered students and teachers in our local environment, whom voluntarily use our educational distribution, and Escuelas Linux has been downloaded thousands of times from 101 countries, so maybe it has been useful to a lot of people that agree with the idea of "Choice!" in learning environments

    OK this is my mistake The problematic deb files are now fixed. Thanks for reporting But these are not new backgrounds per se. All of the bodhi-background deb files except one were broken in a subtle way in our repos. They installed ok but they broke another program which indexes the information in the deb files mainly used by synaptic if it is installed, namely apt-xapian-index. I rebuilt 53 of them yesterday to fix the broken control file they contained. Only the control file should have been changed the images contained are the same. I did a few by hand and then wrote a simple and simple minded bash script to do the rest, because doing it by hand would have taken forever it seemed. By simple minded I mean the script did no error checking and required me to use it correctly. Evidently the using it correctly part I failed to do so on these 4 particular deb files. Not bad out of 53 but still. I was going to redo the rest of the bodhi-background deb files soon, maybe latter today before I tested them. Build and test build and test for each deb file would have slowed the process down dramatically I thought. Of course I also thought if anything failed to work it would not be noticed immediately. But then you noticed, lol. Oh well life goes on ... And for the record hopefully the rest install ok. I just installed the bodhi-backgrounds-pack successfully, which in theory should install them all. After I am done I will double check everything

    This was a BIIIIIIIG jump in versions for ip.boards. You'll notice some pretty big changes, not the least of which is all the old theme elements going away. For now I will leave this and see if we can get a similar theme for ips4. Any complaints, comments, flames, or offers to name your first born after me, let me know. This will be all the monkeying I do tonight. Wednesday is going to be a little later than I originally posted. My wife signed me up for something starting at 7pm, so downtime is more likely to be 9pm or 10pm Wednesday. Hopefully it won't take that long. Tristam

    The one with no clue is me - I thought LDM is just an abbreviation for LightDM. Thanks for the hint: I will do a reinstall of LightDM, then eventually dpkg-reconfigure lightdm and a service ... stop/start

    Escuelas Linux announces the immediate availability, for the first time in its history, of the Escuelas Linux Developer Pack What is it? The Developer Pack is a set of packages that can be additionally installed in Escuelas Linux 5.7, with the goal of ease the setup of programming and development tools, such as LiveCode, Java, C and C++. In this way, the students and teachers now have available a beautiful development and learning environment, ready to be used as is usual in the Escuelas Linux distribution. Nevertheless, giving a preset development environment is not an obstacle to add or change any of the included elements you could need to develop your own apps. Do custom changes and play with the tools, but if returning to the default state of things was necessary, do not worry, merely run our own app, RestoreUser, to have everything back as it was by default. With the availability of this Pack, Escuelas Linux makes its first inroad in the service of students and teachers in high schools and universities. So, its installation is optional, and should be done only in educative environments in which the learning of programming tools is highly regarded. The Developer Pack includes: Java Runtime and Development Kit 8, in its most recent edition to date. LiveCode 9.0, as the app we recommend for development. In it is possible to develop native applications for Linux, MacOS, Windows and HTML5, but in our Pack LiveCode comes preconfigured to develop Android apps with ease. Android Studio, the native program to develop Android apps, is also available, ready and configured for immediate use. NetBeans 8.2, preconfigured to develop apps in Java, C and C++. Also, you can continue using development tools that were already included in Escuelas Linux: Edit your source code for dozens of languages in Kate. Compile C, C++ or Java code in command line. Complement your Java or HTML5 development with web pages created in Bluegriffon, BlueFish or Kompozer. The Developer Pack is available only for Escuelas Linux 5.7 64 bit, but if our users ask for it, we can develop a 32 bit edition soon, although would not include Android Studio as it is not supported for 32 bit anymore. Escuelas Linux Developer Pack can be downloaded right now from https://sourceforge.net/projects/escuelaslinux/files/developer/escuelasLinuxDeveloper5.7-64bits.tar.gz If, for example, the pack was already uncompressed in the Downloads directory (by right click on the package name -> Extract here), the steps to install it using Terminology would be: cd Downloads/escuelasLinuxDeveloper5.7-64bits/ [enter] sudo bash ./instala [enter] Type your password [enter] Despite the Spanish name "instala", the install script is going to work fine for Spanish and English language environments. You still don't have Escuelas Linux 5.7? Read all about this release and where can be downloaded, in https://sourceforge.net/p/escuelaslinux/blog/2018/03/escuelas-linux-57-the-last-of-the-5x-series/

    Ok it seems you are right moksha is using /legacy/eldbus and not e_dbus in elementary. /legacy/eldbus should compile ok with the latest efl.

    Hello _bc, Welcome to the forums and to Bodhi Linux! As a friendly tip, you may want to open a new thread for this as this post started a few years ago...you'll likely have better luck with assistance. Good luck, thank you and cheers!

    I'm sorry for the misunderstanding! Let me try it again. I was referring to the presentation mode and I wondered whether or not there's any way to toggle it automatically. Maybe by means of a bash or something else like it? I want the presentation mode to be enabled only as long as Kodi is running, everywhere else I want it to be disabled.

    Hello Centauri39, If I understand, you may be looking to enable presentation mode, which turns off screen blanking. Main menu ("start" button) -> Settings -> Modes -> check the box next to "Presentation". Alternatively, when the screen blanks, a dialog box should pop up offering to "enter presentation mode", "increase the amount of time before blanking", etc....you may also use that method. To manually adjust the amount of time... Main menu -> Settings -> Settings Panel -> Screen -> Blanking - from here adjust settings to your heart's desires! Good luck and cheers!

    If you check the list of build deps on the GitHub page for Ubuntu 16.04 these should roughly translate to similar package names for Debian: https://github.com/JeffHoogland/moksha I personally do not have any plans at this time to build packages for Debian. The only time anything officialish from Bodhi has been built directly on Debian was when we had an ARM branch that was far too much work.

    I don't recall Bodhi even being debian based. I remember when Me and a former Team member Otterman were working on a Debian version of Bodhi, but we never released an ISO. Maybe it was before me using bodhi but that was Bodhi 1.x unsure exactly which version. As to your question lupin-casper is not needed for Moksha or Bodhi really except for the usb image to work.

    @ all: Thanks to Jeff Hoogland, who really did a great job in helping me with my problem, I´ve got the solution now: Before upgrading my system I had to remove the packages "virtualbox-guest-utils" and "virtualbox-guest-x11". Original post: And that really seemed to be the case here: some sort of conflict between VMWare and the latest version of those packages. Plus: I really don´t need them in VMWare. Glad this could be solved. Thanks to all helpers, especially Jeff. Greetings. Rosika

    This is positive feedback to say to the Bodhi team: thanks for keeping an old dog running. I use a 2007 model Thinkpad T42 for some lightweight tasks, mostly writing stuff out with FocusWriter and for some light web browsing. Because Bodhi has a Legacy version that is 32-bit and importantly NON_PAE I am able to continue using a PC that has one of the nicest to type on keyboards ever ever. Knowing that legacy Bodhi is there, existing, meant that I recently put an mSata drive in the this PC with a converter card. A cheap upgrade but I would not have done it if the OS wasn't getting updates. Now I am well aware of the limitations of speed that exist with the PATA bridge, but the PC is like new again (and faster than expected). It's quieter and the fans are not running because the drive isn't getting hot and using power. The legacy version is great (I use normal Bodhi on a new PC too), and I was really sad about retiring this PC, it is a favorite bit of kit of mine that I didn't want to see abandoned in the back of a cupboard. But as long as I can keep it updated I'll have a use for it. So, anyways thanks!

    I've managed to make us green themed at the very least and thrown the logo at the top. Will have to see if I can poke at the navigation to get our home links and such added at some point.

    @Astroboy Hi, I read the article you have referenced. It is definitely published in 2000. I believe computer literacy significantly decreased since that time. Computer science professors in UK have realized that their current freshmen are less prepared than students back in 1990s. The main reason for that was that in old days one needed to be geeky enough to dive into the computer operations and take an effort to learn how to use it. These days when "everything just works" using a computer is as simple as using a microwave or a TV. To enhance computer literacy and availability, they have invented the Raspberry Pi. Just read their story of inventing Raspberry Pi. My answer to the Waiter's question is "Choice!" Learning and using Linux instead of or in addition to using Windows is like learning how to cook. If one knows how to cook, he or she is able to cook whatever they want. If they do not know how to cook, they are constrained to what is on the menu (Windows or Mac). Good job with Esculeas!

I am not sure why lightdm would want kwallet, so I might as well give SDDM a try next ... My search for Display Managers, amongst others, pointed to LXDM, with the following remark in an Oct. 25, 2014 Wiki: "LXDM: Currently, Bodhi Linux uses LXDM by default. Arch Linux has packages for LXDM too."

    Last I knew the DM was lightdm and not ldm. Maybe I have no clue what I am talking about.

    Welcome to the introductions section of the forum - feel free to create your own thread and share as much or as little about yourself as you'd like! As for myself - I'm a father of two currently residing in central IL. I started using Linux with Kubuntu 7.10 back in early 2008 and haven't looked back since. I started using Enlightenment in early 2010 and started the Bodhi project a little over a year later towards the end of 2011. My software experience development experience is largely with python, however I've also got some background in C, bash, and shivers VBA. My primary job currently is a stay at home father, but in addition to contributing to Bodhi and some other software projects I also work as adjunct mathematics faculty for a small college. To top all of that off I moonlight on the weekends as a semi-professional card game player for a game called "Magic: the Gathering".
