    "Resolved" Window Remember problem

    After running apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, I did run dist-upgrade - it did nothing - zeroed out. moksha still shows (or rather, 0.1.0).

    You call it what you will, its use is zero.

    "Resolved" Window Remember problem

    I added the gadget "Tasks" to my shelf and the lxterminal icon appeared. Previously, all I could see was a box outline within a little pager box which was unclickable and unidentified. I was now able to rt-clk that icon and get to the Window remember screen. The "Remember all" box (from Basic screen) had been hit in error, as mentioned likely due to sensitive synaptics pad. That was on my Thinkpad - I can't seem to replicate that here on the desktop - just tried to and the setting didn't stick. So, with no Tasks gadget on the shelf, on the laptop, the open lxterminal only showed as an outline within a pager box, nowhere else (save htop) - nothing onscreen. In hind sight, I'd chalk this up to an oddity the cause of which is beyond me. The anamoly which started the whole thing remains. On the laptop, I launch lxterminal in desktop 0-2 and it opens in 0-0. Same errors in desktop.
  4. moksha updated and upgraded... Window Remember has not worked properly for some time on my desktop or my laptop, or so it seems. Last related thread here mentioning similar problems was sometime ago - solutions mentioned included using wmctrl (beyond my comprehension). Simply put, windows opened in one screen will jump to another for no apparent reason. One can get used to it, no biggee in this age of UEFI. But when lxterminal started doing it yesterday, I took another look at "window remember". I think I tried checking the box "All" in frustration. Now, lxterminal opens but is invisible, showing only as an outline within a pager box (?) and in htop. Anyone seen this? I'd hate to delete the e folder for such a stupid thing... By adding Tasks to the shelf, I gained access to Edit Icon, then Window Remember - somehow, EVERY box got checked and lxterminal had a severe withdrawal problem. Maybe something with my new keypad and my thumbs, dunno. Window remember still has memory problems.

    solved bodhi-openoffice?

    I had no problem with that, thanks - I had it in /opt all along. One issue I had was a setting for java - I had to tell it where the jdk was even though it was right next to it in /opt (just kidding)! I also had permissions issue in my own /home - I did a mkdir and it was root owned, thereby making saving a spreadsheet there impossible (for me) . This rings a bell now that I see it but I can't recollect how/where this has happened before - its has been a few years. To my surprise, Thunderbird was root owned as well - have no idea what that has done...

    solved bodhi-openoffice?

    Ok, I screwed up somewhere. I was looking at different office suites. I wanted to look at apache OO and used dpkg for the install from a tarball of .debs d/l'd from the apache site - it seemed simple enough it didn't work right. I decided to try bodhi's install after deleting everything from /opt and using apt-get purge - I think maybe that should have been dpkg -P. After not getting anywhere with bodhi's install I looked at synaptic. It showed all the packages as still installed. Now I'll try apt-get again - good hour for an install...

    using the new moksha tried to install Apache openoffice via appcenter - was told bodhi-openoffice was installed. only thing I have here is a .deb in /var/cache/apt/archives/bodhi-openoffice_1%3a4.1.1bodhi2_all.deb apt-get purge removes 1 file another install goes on and same result - nothing there. what am I missing? tnx jg (am off for 2 hrs. a/o now)
  10. Charles: Don't know current status of your travails but maybe this link can provide some light? http://askubuntu.com/questions/207663/cannot-update-grub-with-paramters-on-live-usb In case you haven't been there yet...
  11. I can believe that - when I first installed on new lenovo euid, I used, successfully, a DVD, since the notebook had a drive. I had a number of problems right off which made me think of reinstalling and giving the usb stick a try for a reinstall. It booted once successfully but never again. I have not been able to get the DVD drive into the boot list since day 1 - no idea why but thats for another post.
  12. ChipDoc- Been away dealing with wireless driver issues on the lenovo...in dropping down to e17 32bit legacy, the kernel was too old to recognize my rtl chip so I upgraded to a kernel that did - 3.2 to 3.18. The 64bit non-install at issue in this thread was being done on what should have been a clean disk - no dual boot. Only thing I wanted from grub was to see if it worked. I told the installer to use the whole disk and to format it where required - earlier, I had tried to use the gparted as offered by the installer but the efi was new to me so I let it go by itself. HAND
  13. "...most reports about it have no solution." any idea what that means? the devs (or whatever they are called) have just let this drop to the floor? Be good to know what we are dealing with here.
  14. Charles posted: <snip> "Could need some help here !" Good luck on that - I tried on IRC and got a belated reply that there was no current fix - a fact I cannot seem to verify on this forum. From my own point of view, the fact that I run/use: -lenovo (strike 1) -amd chip (strike 2) -64bit e19 (strike 3) kinda makes support a little light in this neighborhood, your own efforts notwithstanding. If you are going any further on this, I can tell you the ISO I had made 2 completed installs after which it never completed. The ISO was checksummed after d/l.
  15. My box has all those features but you access the bios via a tiny button. I've spent enough time on this and youve wasted enough of yours. I' downloading another distro to try - I'm spinning my wheels here. thanks for the efforts.
