    Descripe how to handle UEFI

    Hi there! I just installed Bodhi 3.2.1 on a notebook, that offers UEFI booting and it took me quite a while to find out how this has to be done. I assume I am not the only one (not so experienced) who runs into this problem. Thus I recommend you explain how it has to be done in your installation guide to make sure no one thinks "Damn, Bodhi is not even in grade to provide a working installation process - I give it up, I better go for windows...". You could put something like the following to the paragraph "II A Prepare your computer": 1. Enter the BIOS and set UEFI booting to "disable" 2. Reboot and enter the BIOS again to set the boot sequence. Note that to start the installation process (step "II B Reboot to USB") you have to boot from the USB stick but after the installation (step "II C First Boot") from your harddisk. There are 2 alternative ways to do so: a. set the BIOS‘ boot sequence for the installation (step "II B") to „first: USB-stick (stick must be inserted before booting to do so); second: your hard disk“ and later when it comes to the first boot (step "II C") to „first: your hard disk“. b. set the BIOS‘ boot sequence right away (step "II B") to „first: your hard disk“ and use the hardware boot manager (if existent often F7) to boot for the installation from the USB stick. Futher I propose adding a link to the installation instructions in the right column of your main page, right after "Which file do I need?" and "Systems requirements". Best regards! Eduard

    how to find out installed Bodhi version?

    Thanks, guys! I hoped, there would be more to find than the LTS version, but that's all right as I do not have any problems with it. I just asked out of curiosity - and, well, as I have to care for 4 notebooks, all running different Bodhi versions... Best regards! Eduard

    how to find out installed Bodhi version?

    hm, there is just an Enlightenment menu (which shows 0.19.9). I assume it was Bodhi 3.0.0 or 3.1.1 that I installed (of course I did all the updates and from time to time even a dist-upgrade).

    how to find out installed Bodhi version?

    Thanks, graywizardlinux, a menu would even be easier but there is no "bodhi linux" in my menu... Is there any module I have to activate to get this menu?
  5. Hi there! Just out of curiosity I wonder how to get the information which Bodhi version is installed on my PC (via terminology). Could anyone tell? Thanks in advance! Eduard

    Icons are gone

    Thanks a lot, Aka Jazz, for your analysis! And to you, Charles! I did the "esudo eepDater" and it worked exactly as you desciribed it, Charles (asked password -> showed all updates -> ran them without any error after a I did the "select" and "apply"). So this way it works. Do you have an idea what I can do to make it work also by clicking it's "run the package manager" area? And the same for the Application center... Cheers! Eduard

    Icons are gone

    Thank you DeepSpeed and Charles! It is not that I try to run different update processes at the same time. Even after hours that Synaptic and Terminology are closed neither EepDater nor the App Centers install button do work. Even rebooting does not help to get them to work. To summarize: updates via Terminology (sudo....) and Synaptic do work. Updates via EepDater and the Bodhi App Centers install button do not work. I am looking for help to fix this two errors (respectively one common error). Best regards! Eduard

    Icons are gone

    Thank you, Deepspeed! Sadly the "-f" didn't change anything (see output which - I am sorry - is in German). There are only 7 updates waiting. xxx@xxx:~$ sudo apt-get install -f [sudo] password for xxx: Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut. Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig 0 aktualisiert, 0 neu installiert, 0 zu entfernen und 7 nicht aktualisiert. And even a "check" didn't show any problems: xxx@xxx:~$ sudo apt-get check Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut. Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig Is there a way to update or remove + install the package manager? Thanks for any help! Eduard

    Icons are gone

    Hi there! After 2 days that eepDater showed 4 available updates but didn't start the package manager I decided to update the system via terminology. As eepDater after a "sudo apt-get update" still showed the 4 updates I did a "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" and that did work: eepDater showed that the system is up to date. I added an autoremove and autoclean. But after that almost all icons are gone! They icon sets that are left are: humanity, humanity dark, loginicons, ubuntumonodark and ubuntumonolight. Could anybody please tell me what the names of the other icon sets are that Bodhi comes with? Knowing this I surely could get them back via synaptic, couldn't I? Edit: this part is solved. It was the numix set. Installing it again got all my icons back in place. Edit: It is still that eepDater shows available updates but can't start the package manager. What could be the reason for that? Just found out that also the AppCenters install button on my system doesn't do anything anymore... Is it possible that I have lost the package manager? How can I find out and get it back? Thanks a lot! Eduard

    how to change font size of applications?

    ...ok, regarding Thunderbird I found out: - neccessary to create a folder "chrome" in your personal (hidden) directory xxx.default - neccessary to create a file "userChrome.css" where one can control the sizes of the general interface, the menus and the mail account tree: /* Global UI font */ * {font-size: 12pt !important;} /* Menu font */ menu, menulist, menuitem {font-size: 12pt !important;} /* Mail account tree font */ treechildren {font-size: 12px;} Still I don't know for Midori, LibreOffice, Audacious and so on... Is there a general possibility instead of looking for individual solutions?
  14. Hello there! As I am using the German language package I am not to sure about the English menu terms. I am sorry for that! To my issue: I don't manage to change the font size of applications (and I think, this is easy to solve for you guys! ) Under "Look" (or so) and "Scalling" (or so) one can change the size of the fonts Bodhi / E19 is using (and I did so: I put the factor to 1.4). That didn't change the font sizes of non Bodhi / E19 applications like Thunderbird. Is that the way it should be? Even Look/Fonts/Advanced seems not to be the way to change these. When I changed the menu titel size to very big I do not see any change - nor in Thunderbird neither in Bodhi / E19 applications. What should happen changing this font sizes? Thunderbird provides a view tab to change the font scaling, but also editing it here does not have any effect. Does Bodhi kind of dominate the changes I am doing in Thunderbird? Thanks a lot for any help! Eduard
