Bodhi Appcenter mistakes


It seems that the Bodhi Appcenter website have some mistakes:
1) Games - Mines (https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/mines/)
The hyperlink "Install" (apt:gnomine) is outdated, it needs to be (apt:gnome-mines)
2) Multimedia Production - Open Broadcast Software (https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/open-broadcast-software/)
The hyperlink "Install" (aptbs-studio) does not work: No apt package "obs-studio", but there is a snap with that name. Try "snap install obs-studio".
3) The metapackage "bodhi-filesharing" is not presented in the Appcenter at all (probably "System Tools" group of packages).

Are you letting people know these mistakes exist or are you asking for someone here to fix them? If the latter, that's not the purpose of this board and you would be better off letting the Bhodi folks know via their web site.

I don't found bugzilla on the Bodhi website, and the link from https://www.bodhilinux.com - Community - Forums redirects me to this place.
Ok, this is my mistake, I'm sorry.

Not really a mistake, no worries on my end.

I have added Open Broadcast Software to BL 5.0 repos and added a metapackage for gnome-mines so those two should work now.

NOTE: I added OBS even tho there is a KNOWN issue with it not really functioning properly with Bodhi Linux 5.0. I don't use it nor have I investigated the issue. Allegedly it "lags" and is slow and unresponsive. Since I have not investigated it I am unsure if this a OBS bug or a missing dependencies not being installed or a moksha issue or whatnot. I don't know. And for the record I am just repeating what has been reported.

As to adding bodhi-filesharing to the Appcenter, I don't or haven't yet edited or added things there. I think I can in theory ... but I leave all that to Jeff. I can ask and see what he thinks and whether he wishes to do so.

Thanks

For the record I know of more issues with the appcenter, i just mostly leave that to Jeff and focus on the code side of things these days. Jeff has been mostly focused on work and RW concerns these days so some things have been neglected. I prefer to install using apt and for the most part ignore the appcenter which is rather limited in choices anyway. Hope you enjoy Bodhi

I like Bodhi because:
- it is lightweight and 32 bit legacy version works well on the system with 384 Mb RAM only;
- it have development tools (perl, python and GCC+binutils+kernel-headers) with man-pages out-of-box (only perldoc is missed);
- it is just beautiful.
And I like the Bodhi linux way.
I found described AppCenter issues becaus I'm trying to build "Bodhi Legacy AppPack" image for offline use by myself.

I understand that. But I like AppCenter because someone already tried a lot applications and selected those most passed for Bodhi (I hope)

In that case, you might find the shell script attached to the first post on this thread useful: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...lp-4175646697/

You can remove the interactive parts, and add or remove parts to match your personal tastes.

It's certainly handy if you're in the habit of borking and re-installing Bodhi - as, indeed, I am

2 hemlocktree: thank you for the regards.

2 Bob: thank you for the way to simplify Bodhi Linux setup procedure.
But I solved the task in a different way.
First of all I created full list of packages that are presented in the App Center, in the file 'packages.txt':

Code:
brasero
. . .
chromium-browser
firefox
Then I created the shell script for downloading (without installation) these in the fresh Bodhi:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
apt-get update
apt-get -dy upgrade
while read package
do apt-get -dy install $package
done <packages.txt
echo "READY"
This gave me mirror of the repository subset in /var/cache/apt/archives

At the last step I created the repository for local use as described here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Personal

Cool!

There are always several ways of skinning a cat. Although, they're all usually a bit rough on the cat.
