Sorry to hear about your illness. Get well soon.

Just installed 5.1.0. Flawless! Everything works perfectly and quickly. Even Wine works beautifully. I'm really impressed. Thanks so much.

@ enigma9o7

In fact, I've been looking for that entry/option very thoroughly, but I can assure you,
that entry/option is definitely not present on my Bodhi.

I checked this on both a 64bit and a 32bit version of Bodhi and on two different machines.

I also had the idea that maybe it's a matter of the system's language (I'm running Bodhi in German language),
but after switching to English (even after rebooting), the entry still wasn't there.
It is not only 'unloaded', it simply doesn't exist at all here.

1. I always use the terminal to perform the updates and I always do...
Code:
sudo apt get update && sudo apt get dist-upgrade
According to what you say, this should give me the very same content as a fresh install of 5.1.0, shouldn't it?

2. Thank you! I'm looking forward to that package to be available.

3. Earlier today, I thought, it might be a matter of the system's language (I'm on a German Bodhi),
but switching to the English version didn't help. So, I'm back on the German version, again, now.

Well that explains everything! That won't do anything for ya

I'm just joking, but seriously you did make mistakes in there. I think you meant
Code:
sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade
This would work too, I think apt-get is the old way (that still works), but need the dash between apt and get:
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
And I still dunno the difference between upgrade and dist-upgrade, seems they do the same thing to me, just like apt and apt-get. So I personally do
Code:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
since that seems the most effecient, those saved keystrokes add up and give me time to write long pointless posts on here.

Sorry, that's what happens if you post something just by remembering.

I accidently mixed two versions of that command together.
It's apt or apt-get, but never apt get.

The command I'm always using is of course this one:

Code:
sudo apt update && sudo apt -y dist-upgrade
But still with the result as mentioned above.

My terminal inputs for package upgrades are, always:

sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade

And please don't think the "full-upgrade" install the next distro level point release - it doesn't. I'm sure that the gray-beards on this forum understand the difference between the different types of upgrade parameters. The full-upgrade parameter says to upgrade all available packages from the listed repos, include deletes or removals, as opposed to simply upgrading packages.

I agree with others that the command line, in this case, is superior to the GUI equivalent. The GUI applications like Synaptic and Muon are great for helping to find a package where you may not know the complete name, plus you can see what will be or recommended to be installed before committing to an install. You can do the same on the command line, but the GUI is easier/simpler to find that info.

I have an old 32 bit laptop that legacy works great on however the video does not have hardware driver support because it uses the old SIS video chipset. The last version of ubuntu that supported that was ubuntu 14.04. The problem is using vesa I can get 90% of what I want but not view video's etc because it can't handle the frames..or I can run an older out of date linux version that doesn't have a good "upgrade path".

Is it possible to run the kernel (and any associated packages) to support the sis video chipset on the current legacy bodhi 5.1.0?

I'd like to use the laptop as a dedicated viewer of my wyze security cams which would require ability to play 1080p streams.

Thanks for your time either way.

I just tried
Code:
full-upgrade
instead of
Code:
dist-upgrade
but still no 'Desktop Icons' inside the 'Files' tab.

'Places' is the only one there.

As I said before, I'm running BL5.1 on two machines, one with 32bit and the other one with 64bit.

Both of them include Moksha 0.3.1, according to 'About Moksha' (I guess, the version number is what you are looking for, isn't it?).

And here's the screenshot of the 'Files' tab:
https://www1.xup.in/exec/ximg.php?fid=19996969

That tab looks alike on both machines.

Agrrrrr

You were told several times, you should load desktop icons under modules setting, not Settings Panel!!!

Lets try it once again
menu->settings->modules->files tab
here load Desktop icons

That's what settings panel will looks like if you don't have the desktop icons module loaded. Other modules are like that too, if they're not loaded then their settings disappear.

Sorry, definitely no offence intended, but how often do I have to repeat it?
I just cannot load, what's not there.

I only have 'Places' and 'EFM (Starter)'.
Again, there is no 'Desktop Icons' and if it is not there, it cannot be in the 'Files' tab of the Settings Panel either.
See for yourself!

EDIT:
The cause of this misunderstanding is probably that you called it modules settings,
but that panel is called Modules without settings. At least here on my system.

EFM Starter must be the german translation It is in the same position and has the same icon as the screenshot I showed you. Try loading that module.

No, it is not the translation.
Germans use 'Desktop Icons' just as it is, without any translation or they say 'Desktop Symbole'.

Just tried.

(Sorry, section deleted because I was wrong.)

EDIT:
That one is giving me 'File Icons' but not 'Desktop Icons'.
Seems to be some kind of MIME manager (to manage MIME types).
