    Error windows too small

    So, after some time having passed, including a long holiday, I'd just like to share that after re-installation of a new download, there were fewer errors in general, and none as unspecific as before. All error windows I've had so far were fine, and also this terminology issue is gone. Also, an accidental apt-get upgrade did not mess anything up as had happened earlier. I did not, however, try copying the ~/.e folder from my backup because the backup drive crashed in the meantime. I've had a few segfaults in Midori and pcmanfm though, and Places does not work smoothly as a part of the shelf, but maybe there's space for that in another thread. Thanks for hanging with me!

    Will do. I'll share my findings.

    Yes it is... I tinkered with the system colors, and I think that one was "Dialog Background Base", I turned it black. It's one of the few elements of the default theme that change color. But I've found another nice theme by now. But anyway ... I sure hope so! Last time, I ran into other weird errors so that the (md5-correct) image would get stuck booting from any kind of medium... And I swear they disappeared without a trace when somebody else took my computer in their hands and pressed the start button one more time. Gawd knows... So - I'll reinstall. Do you know if .e/ directories or any other things in the home directory could interfere with Moksha?

    usb stick format

    Well, you would want to make sure you open it just type gparted into Run Everything. Or sudo gparted in the terminal.

    usb stick format

    From the terminal, I like mkfs. For an unmounted drive at /dev/sda1, it could be sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1 sudo mke2fs -t ext4 /dev/sda1 I only ever used the first one, but they should be equivalent. Here is a nice short summary of gparted and mkfs: https://www.ehow.com/how_6771802_format-usb-flash-drive-linux.html

    Moksha startup screen replaced by Unity's

    Yes, that was it. Installing the package fixed it. Thank you!

    Terminology lost some menu items?

    Thanks! I tried a few themes (default, Japan, Radiance), but unfortunately, that doesn't change it.

    Hey, thanks for your replies! @thewaiter, I do indeed have a few weird issues^^ But the checksums were right when I installed. I don't have that iso anymore, though. Do you think it's worth a re-install? Or another thought, could it be conflicting configs, since I more or less just copied my home directory from my former E system? There is, for example, a .e/ directory left over. Could this interfere with anything? @Jeff, the theme I used there is the default theme. I was actually doing what you described, I just couldn't think of the right word.the other day. And grab-resizing, it works for all other types of windows.

    Moksha startup screen replaced by Unity's

    In the days before I knew of apt-get's magical dist-upgrade option (about four weeks ago), I ran a simple apt-get upgrade on my Bodhi Linux, followed by an apt-get autoremove, that for some reason seems to have removed at least Terminology, PCMan, the icon set I had then, and the Moksha login screen. The others I found again, but I still have a Unity startup screen following me around with a certain amicable persistency. Can someone tell me how to get the Moksha one back?^^ Thanks!
  10. I just went into terminology's menu and found only two main entries there, Behavior and Toolkit. The Fonts etc. seem to have disappeared. I recently made a dist-upgrade and fiddled around with themes and colours, but not much else. (The entries do not seem to be invisible, but actually missing.) Does anyone know where they might have gone and how to retrieve them? Edit: oops, my bad: they were invisible. I can reach them by blindly using the up and down keys and then hitting Enter. But there's nothing to indicate they're there, just a separator. Still - does anyone else have that as well? https://imageshack.com/i/plOjWh77j

    Need default .cfg file for Terminology

    Um .. on my system, /etc/skel just contains bash config files. find / -name terminology just found me the base.cfg in my own home directory (and things like /usr/bin/.., of course), even after an update/upgrade terminology. The reason for my question is https://forums.bodhilinux.com/index.php?/topic/13274-terminology-lost-some-menu-items/ but I just posted here as well, in case this turns out to be unrelated.

    Error windows too small

    Hello! Sometimes when I get error messages, they appear in windows that are too small for the text they should display. When I try to increase the size, the little sizing popup appears, but nothing happens. In the screenshot, I was dragging the mouse pointer away from the upper right corner, but it's the same for all other border elements. https://imageshack.com/a/img922/6079/ySTIEs.jpg Bit annoying if the essential bit of your error message is missing Cheers

    Close lid locks the screen only sometimes

    Ok Mine is 1.2.0-3ubuntu4.1

    I already have these options set. Except for the "on startup" one, which is already working for me without having the box ticked. Thanks! I installed it, and well, it does seem to work - except for my desired "lock on suspend" option. So maybe it's not an application issue here. I'll try The Waiter's tip next, and set up a live usb to see how the legacy kernel does. Or maybe I'll poke at a few linux-image-extra versions first.

    I will, thanks for the tip. Can I just apt-get remove/install them like any other package?
