Right, this is the second round of remarks concerning the bčta; it's an addition to the first round:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...1/#post6088095

1. When you go to the About Operating System section of the menu, one of the items is "Reset Moksha". I assume that this resets Moksha to its default settings. So far, so good, but a protective layer would be helpful: for example a dialogue window with an OK button and a Cancel button, and this text: "This will reset Moksha to its default settings. All your modifications will therefore be lost. Are you sure?"

2. Currently, the item "Network Connections" is in the menu section Application - Preferences. I think it would perhaps be more appropriate to have it in the menu section Application - System Tools.

So far the alpha loads quickly in a VM and installed without issue. I will attempt a bare-metal install later today on an Inspiron 560 8 GB core i5 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA machine and will post any relevant feedback from its live session and installation.
For what it's worth, the immediate visual changes to the default theme look good and the system itself is impressively stable. Each subsequent release has been better in this regard. I think that including Synaptic and Leafpad were intelligent choices; Epiphany's inclusion I don't understand, but it's easily enough replaced.
Thank you.

No, reset Moksha doesn't mean reverting to the default moksha config. It means, the moksha desktop just restarts = loads all relevant modules, themes etc.

If you go to profiles and remove one of them, this means reverting to default profiles setup

OK, thanks.... In order to avoid confusion, perhaps it's better then to change "Reset Moksha" into "Restart Moksha"? Then no misunderstanding will be possible.

Cool! No worries for the Dutch translation: just alert me when the .po files have been updated on GitHub with the new string and I'll take care of the Dutch translation.

And of the German and French string as well, if you'd appreciate that. Although I normally leave that to native speakers, this one string is easy for me: I have enough knowledge of German and French to be able to translate "Restart".

Great

Of course we appreciate if you do that for other languages.

I will consult this all with ylee and we probably update all locales. What a pity he did it just 2 days ago

I have an old bodhi 5 iso and with the updates i now have have 5.1.0. i believe that is what i used to have too. so this 5.1 do you mean 5.1.1? or what? i thought it was weird when you first poseted this. but when i look at menu about operating system about bodhi it has 5.1.0. had two pots of coffee this A.M. so not sure what i am missing?

Everything is OK. When you installed BL 5.0 and upgraded the system, you have now BL 5.1. We updated all relevant packages in the repository for everyone who wants to have Bodhi up to date. Bodhi 5.1 release ISOs are standalone releases with installer covered all our work in repo but included newer kernel for current machines and legacy kernel for older machines.

I am mostly interested if both ISO's install ok without issues. If they install I would presume they work fine.

i installed the non-hwe (4.18 kernel) version first. it installed without incident and is running well on the second day. the only real quirk so far is that i don't get a boot splash screen image (which i actually prefer, but did not specifically choose). i did run the installer from a terminal with ubiquity -b to avoid overwriting grub from my regular bodhi installation.

a few notes:
1. i like the lock screen graphics. similar to the old one, but new and updated.

2. i don't have swami installed. i didn't see anything about it in the changelog, but i'm not even sure if that is part of the apppack which is the version i typically installed in the past.

3. in firefox when i right-click on the icon in the top left and choose "edit icon" the window that opens is far too wide for my screen. a similar thing happens when i try to save anything in firefox. the save window is far too large (wide and long) to see everything. there is a thread here about that in the past version of 5 if you want me to link it. Stefan helped me figure out how to move the windows with alt + left-click grab in that thread (resizing gets the window to show up with the correct dimensions the following times, but to get to the edges to even be able to resize requires a bit of work), but it would seem like the system should know my window dimensions. i do have everything scaled to 2.2 to be able to see.

4. similarly, when i open some programs maximized (vlc and libreoffice calc for example) the very bottom of the window is below the shelf. it is a tiny amount and minimizing then resizing fixes that for future runs, but just wanted to add that it happens.

5. i get mild audio feedback when typing in my password after i have chosen to install a program through the appcenter. the same is true when i type in a title for a terminology instance. it does not happen when i type my password to launch synaptic, lightdm or password for sudo in terminology.

a couple more that i overlooked:

1. elementary config is missing icons for profiles, scrolling, rendering, caches, focus and etc.
2. i have always wondered why elementary config isn't listed in the regular applications -> preferences menu where lxappearance and qt4/qt5 configs get put instead of just in settings.

Thanx, I will look at those icons missing issue...

I have to say, this icon work is more difficult than I expected and it is not finished at all. Yesterday I spent almost whole evening redrawing system preferences icons to match the moksha new design style.
