    Python 3.5.what?

    That is why I was asking about LTS. I made some assumptions based on that phrase. Doesn't Ubuntu (and therefore Bodhi) use Python itself somewhere? I assumed they would want to keep it patched. I thought the second-decimal place releases are just fixes.

    Python 3.5.what?

    OK. I'll wait and see. It probably has no bearing on my general Python use.

    Python 3.5.what?

    I see that Bodhi 4 has Python 3.5.2 installed. I know we're downstream of Ubuntu LTS, and that's using the Python 3.5 branch instead of 3.6, so that part makes sense. I was unable to find out which version of Python 3.5 they're using. The most recent python.org release is 3.5.5. I guess I'm not entirely clear on the LTS philosophy (and how that impacts Bodhi). Wouldn't Ubuntu keep up to date with all of the 3.5.x updates? I thought those are mostly fixes. Isn't that what the "S" in "LTS" stands for?

    Installing Pale Moon

    I installed it, per your directions. Everything seems to be working. Thanks!

    Installing Pale Moon

    I know just enough Linux to be dangerous (to myself). I'm trying to learn more as I go. I want to try out the Pale Moon web browser. Scanning the forums, it looks like a fair number of people use it. It's not in Synaptic. They have an installer here: https://linux.palemoon.org/download/installer/ Is that the best (or simplest or robustest) way to install it? Where should I put it?

    Screen Resolution not Persistent

    Umm . . . OK . . . funny story! It was a permissions problem. In my troubleshooting yesterday, I ended up making several copies of the file and trying different things. Somehow the file in the correct location still had a read-only flag set. I somehow got confused and was troubleshooting with a copy in the wrong location (Doh!). Your asking me about the path caused me to look carefully at where I should be. Sorry for being a dolt. I appreciate the helpfulness shown in this forum. I don't want to squander that.

    Screen Resolution not Persistent

    Most peculiar. I just tried that, but it doesn't work. I wonder what's different about my setup. Maybe it's some sort of bizarre quirk of VMware. This doesn't stop me from using Bodhi. I'll just have to do this manually every time I start up. Thanks for taking a stab at this.

    Screen Resolution not Persistent

    Nope! That's just a spacious font.

    Screen Resolution not Persistent

    This is all that's in it: sh ~/.screenlayout/ScreenRes.sh

    Wicd in Bodhi Linux 4 / saving ARandR layout

    OK! I started a new topic here: http://forums.bodhilinux.com/index.php?/topic/14926-screen-resolution-not-persistent/ If anybody has any ideas, please go over there. Thanks!
  11. I have a problem with Bodhi always booting up with a screen resolution of 800x600 and not remembering my preference for 1680x1050. I did the following: 1) Opened ARandR and selected the resolution that I use for my monitor, 1680x1050. 2) Saved this layout in ~/.screenlayout as ScreenRes.sh. 3) Opened the ~/.e/e/applications/startup/startupcommands text file in epad and added that same path. 4) Rebooted. 5) Got this error msg: "Moksha was unable to run the application: /home/ron/.e/e/applications/startup/startupcommands The application failed to start." The file permissions on the two files (startupcommands and ScreenRes.sh) are both: -rwxrwxr-x (One other piece of info, just in case it's relevant, is that I'm running Bodhi inside of VMWare Fusion 10.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.13.3) (I basically followed the instructions in this thread: http://forums.bodhilinux.com/index.php?/topic/13692-wicd-in-bodhi-linux-4-saving-arandr-layout/ but it's not working for me.)

    Wicd in Bodhi Linux 4 / saving ARandR layout

    I hope it's OK that I'm resurrecting this old thread. I have the same problem with Bodhi always booting up with a screen resolution of 800x600 and not remembering my preference for 1680x1050. Like amerigena, I did the following (tweaked for my parameters and fixing the /. typo): 1). Opened ARandR and selected the resolution that I use for my monitor, 1680x1050. 2). Saved this layout in ~/.screenlayout as ScreenRes.sh. 3). Opened the ~/.e/e/applications/startup/startupcommands text file in epad and added that same path. 4). Rebooted. 5). Got this error msg: "Moksha was unable to run the application: /home/ron/.e/e/applications/startup/startupcommands The application failed to start." The file permissions on the two files (startupcommands and ScreenRes.sh) are both: -rwxrwxr-x (One other piece of info, which I don't think is relevant here, is that I'm running Bodhi inside of VMWare Fusion 10.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.13.3) Does anybody have any thoughts about how to fix this? Thanks!
