Bodhi 5.1 with legacy


Just posting this in case there are any newbies looking to install or upgrade to 5.1.

I installed Bodhi 5.0.0 legacy on a laptop the other day and upgraded to 5.1 via updates (not intentionally originally!)

When installing, boot live, when the desktop appears, wait for a few minutes, then select install from the menus. During or after install, wifi is available to connect to. I connected after install - not sure if it speeds up the install process or not.

No issues whatsoever - except Synaptic package manager didn't work but there is a reason and that is resolved below. I did the updates via the terminal - it took a long time - over an hour - but that may depend on the hardware - my hardware is basic and only 1GB ram.

For any newbies just installing Bodhi, just let the updates run. Do sudo apt-get update, but you then also need to do sudo apt-get upgrade followed by sudo apt-get dist-upgrade to get the full upgrade. There were various questions along the way during upgrade. I selected y then hit return(yes)to all upgrades except grub and selected n (no) to upgrade that. Only because I am paranoid having had grub issues in the past with different linux versions. Might try that next time. But all running fine.


Also along the way you're asked which keyboard you have - I have no idea and none of the options fitted my 80 key keyboard so I selected Generic 101 keyboard - it then asks you to select language and country and all working fine.

Reboot after finishing all updates. And maybe reboot again.

Thanks to all involved for this upgrade. I hope there is a new iso soon to speed up the process, but once updates done, it's done!

It boots and shuts down quickly and smoothly (unlike Xubuntu 18.04!).

Incidentally - I installed from dvd with a usb dvd drive. I still cannot boot live from usb with Bodhi legacy but there is another thread on that.

After install I ran the following to get tap to click on mousepad

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

It then needs a reboot to work.

And sudo ufw enable (to enable firewall)

Installed on two Eee PC 701SD's with 8GB SSD and 1GB ram 0.09Ghz celeron processor. If installing on something this small, then you can hit "return" instead of clicking on "continue" or "apply" as the install page disappears off the bottom of the screen.

If you wish to have working folders in home for documents, music etc, like I do, then it is

sudo apt-get install xdg-user-dirs
xdg-user-dirs-update

Probably then needs a reboot. Thanks to Waiter for that!

After installing Chromium browser, Libreoffice writer, evince pdf, vlc and synaptic package manager, I had 2.7GB free of an 8GB drive :-)

It is all running very nicely and thanks to rbtylee for pointing me to the link on here that explained why synaptic package manager was not working straight away and how to resolve it.

How come you have synaptic? It wasn't in my 5.0 installation. Instead I have a rubbish program called eepDater which always freezes on "updating mime database" at the end of the installation stage.

I've debated with myself whether to install synaptic instead but there doesn't seem to be much point, since it's simpler just to use apt.

I installed it :-) (It's in Bodhi software manager). Just in case I needed it some time for a piece of software eg. I believe elsewhere, it says that eepDater is in transition function-wise while the latest distro is being finalised. That just provides the updates to the system (or you can do it in the terminal).

Just to be clear - two different things - installed synaptic package manager (software) and "synaptics" in the terminal to enable touchpad click to tap :-)

Apologies actually - I jumped the gun a bit with the above as the new iso includes various other things including synaptic, tap to click and folders I believe. Very nice folders too :-)

Thank you very much.

After many attempts, I decided using Archdroid flat icon set created in Oomox theme tool and adding almost 100 new icons getting from free icons pages or creating by myself by hand.

Now I am working on the same icon sets in different color tone for each theme I maintain. The set will be selected automatically after theme change. Lots of work but I think it will be nice...

Well I do pay attention to things you know. Our BL 5.0 ISOs had a few issues and both Štefan and I are trying to be a bit more 'professional' and add more polish to Bodhi. User comments, suggestions and complaints have also been taking into consideration.
