    Cursor has the "shakes"

    Hello and how is everyone doing, I got a tricky situation. It's laughable 90% of the time and pisses me of 10% of the time. So, the problem is my cursor. When my laptop is plugged in (charging), my cursor shakes uncontrollably. Mind you, this doesn't happen if I have a mouse plugged in (USB), only when I'm using the touch pad. My specs: OS: Bodhi Linux x86_64 (who would've thought ) Model: X550EP 1.0 Kernel: 4.8.0-34-generic Uptime: 3 days, 3 hours, 52 mins Packages: 1314 Shell: bash 4.3.48 Resolution: 1366x768 DE: enlightenment WM: MOKSHA Theme: Adwaita [GTK3] Icons: Adwaita [GTK3] Terminal: terminology Terminal Font: terminus-14 CPU: AMD A4-5000 APU (4) @ 1.500GHz GPU: AMD Radeon HD 8330 GPU: AMD Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M Memory: 1259MiB / 5403MiB Anyone had a similar situation or problem?

    Oracle on Bodhi, Bodhacle?

    So I've just set up Oracle 11g R2 Express Edition and SQL Developer and it works fine. I've followed two quick tutorials and it took me ~60 minutes. It could take longer on a slower machine if anyone's interested in Oracle databases on Bodhi. It's not an overly complicated installation process and its new user friendly. After installing Oracle 11g, Bodhi will register it in your start menu under Applications/Other and you can simply click on Start Database or Stop Database. Your SQL Developer will not be registered under the application menu but you can run it by simply writing sqldeveloper in your terminal. The links are as follows: SQL Developer: https://www.dizwell.com/wordpress/technical-articles/oracle/install-sql-developer-on-ubuntu/ Oracle 11g Express Edition (64-bit): http://meandmyubuntulinux.blogspot.hr/2012/05/installing-oracle-11g-r2-express.html Oracle XE (32-bit): http://meandmyubuntulinux.blogspot.hr/2013/03/installing-oracle-xe-on-ubuntu-32-bit.html Note: Oracle XE (32-bit) installer can also be downloaded from (http://1drv.ms/1vMWia6)which is the authors cloud storage, I haven't used it so, it isn't checked.

    Oracle on Bodhi, Bodhacle?

    Hey cool cats and groovy chicks! I was wondering if anyone used Oracle Database and SQLDeveloper on Bodhi? I realise this is kind of a general Ubuntu-esque question and not specific to Bodhi. The reason i would like to have those pieces of software on my laptop is that I'm currently enrolled in a class at my university that does Oracle databases and uses Oracle 11g DB and SQLDeveloper. I'd like to do that on Bodhi, not on Windows. My questions: Can it be done in a simple way? Is there a difference between the WIN/LINUX versions? What's your general experience with development using Bodhi (not limited to databases, naturally)? Cheers, Bodhi Buddha

    Jobs and stuff

    Hello friends, I was just wondering, what do you people do for a living? I just started working as a junior .NET developer(oh the irony). What's your current position, do you like it and would you rather be doing something else? If you don't wanna answer any questions, that's fine too

    How to ask questions

    There's also the Cunningham's law which states "the best way to get the right answer on the internet is not to ask a question; it's to post the wrong answer."

    Neofetch question

    Hello and how is everyone doing today. Following my path to enlightenment i stumbled upon neofetch and thought to myself, I need that shiznit. I got the neofetch package from the developers github and installed it as per usual. My question is, if anyone uses neofetch, how did you manage to get images working in the terminal. What I learned: Neofetch supports Bodhi Linux Terminology uses tycat instead of w3m for the image backend You can have sweet waifus in your terminal What I did: Installed the package Opened up the config file Set image_backend=tycat Set image_source to my image path That's about it After those steps, my terminal still prints out the default tux image in ASCII. The developer summed it up nicely over here but I can't make it work. If anyone has any recommendations as to what to do, I'd be a happy Buddha. Thanks and as always thanks for your support. Bodhi-buddha out.

    Hello Bodhi, Zagreb calling!

    Namaste, my Bodhi friends! I'm just your average 23 y/o student doing stuff that nobody really cares about. When did you start using Linux? About 3 months ago. Why did you start using Linux? I'm not really sure. I was a Windows one trick pony who knew nothing of the miracles that open-source OS can provide. If I had to name one reason why I prefer Linux over Windows, its probably because I feel like I'm not just clicking on cute little icons or using a setup wizard (next,next,finish), I feel like I'm really computing. Why did you start using Bodhi? My first distro was Kubuntu. Now, don't get me wrong, I liked it very much and it helped me figure out this whole Linux thingy. I think, as a transitional distro, Kubuntu is pretty good. After a few weeks, I grew bored and surfed distrowatch.com all day. After a few really REALLY interesting weeks of literally downloading every single distro I could lay my hands on, I settled for LXLE. And it was fine, for a certain amount of time. After some time, I thought to myself: "Bodhi-buddha, surely you don't need a lightweight distro of this proportions, you can probably find something better". So after a few days of thorough searching, I found Bodhi. The first thing I probably saw was the word ENLIGHTENED. I cracked a smile and though to myself, this is probably the distro for me. I feel like Bodhi is a perfect combination of a distro that's capable of doing everything you want, but without all the clutter. So far, so good. Transitional distro? You think you've transitioned your simple Windows mindset into the great Linux master race in only 3 months? Actually, I don't think I have. I'm pretty beaten up about the fact that I didn't start using Linux at an early age, and now I'm trying to make up for lost years. I know my Linux proficiency is sub par but I really like learning about it. Got a good recommendation for literature? Send it my way So you're from Zagreb? Yeah, I live in Zagreb, Croatia. That little country in Europe that kind of looks like a dragon. You're a student? Yup, I have a bachelors degree in IT and I'm working towards masters. Favorite IDE? Visual Studio Favorite language? C#, no doubt about it. Favorite Bodhi feature? Gotta be the AisleRiot Solitaire. I'm seriously hooked. I vaguely remember playing it when i was a kid and not understanding what the hell I'm doing. I spend an hour a day playing Solitaire. Can I be your friend? Sure, add me up and we can chat all day buddy. Seriously? Yeah, I'm not as active on this forum as I'd like to be, but I'll check it out a few times a day. So, that's about it. Cheers to all my Buddhas!

    Snipping tool

    Anyone got a recommendation for a program similar to ye olde Snipping Tool for Windows? I'm just looking for a simple program, not a screen capture + image editor etc. Thanks, Penguin Buddha

    Resizing windows

    A point to add. If you want to access the window property of a window, you can usually do it with a right click. Should you be using a browser (for instance Chrome), it wont let you access the menu. Then you press Alt+right click and you can choose a bunch of options from the window submenu. Cheers, Penguin Buddha

    Applications that are not in the App Center

    Obviously, I'm not that Linux proficient yet, but I've noticed that when i want to install a program that I can't seem to find on the App center, the first thing I'd do is literally this: 1. Open up the terminal 2. Type in the name of the package or a variation of it 3. ??? So if I know I want to install Synaptic, but I'm not sure how to, I type in Synaptic. The next thing you know, my terminal tells me the proper way to address it. qwertzy@bodhi-buddha:~$ synaptic The program 'synaptic' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt install synaptic qwertzy@bodhi-buddha:~$ thank you terminal! Best of luck in the fields of Linux!
