I can relate to the TL;DNR (Too Long; Did Not Read). I also ignore stuff like that esp if it is basic info I already think I know or can find easily.

Simple and effective. Like the project itself.
I agree with this idea. I like the Zen like simplicity and to point nature of it. I will probably go with this for the page that displays on first boot. But still keep the old quick start just link to it in the 'landing' page.

Thanks again. Great Idea

Yea, I am also for this idea. I always skipped the quick start

I just installed 5.0 from dvd. Is it upgrading to 5.1 via updates? I noticed a lot of questions when doing updates via terminology- asking if I wanted to update grub and something else or keep current, so I opted to keep current - is that right. Also asking me what keyboard I have - I have no idea so selected cancel. Also said I didn’t have latest enlightenment but opted to ignore that. Anyway hope I’ve selected the right things! Using legacy version.

Edit - it is showing 5.1 installed but still don’t have start icon, synaptic touch pad or folders for home.

BL 5.0 is more or less updated to 5.1 via apt updates/upgrades. I say more or less because some of the new apps on my latest BL 5.1 alpha ISO are not going to be installed.

Most of time when apt upgrade ask you questions about keeping the current config file (grub) or installing the package managers version it is ok to opt to keep the current.

The msg about you don't have the latest enlightenment will go away once you have updated and restarted moksha and or rebooted.

Folders in home are created by xdg-user-dirs. Install that if you wish and then run xdg-user-dirs-update.

Things you may be missing are:
  • bodhi-theme-moksha-arc-green
  • leafpad
  • epiphany web browser
  • synaptic

Install those if you wish.

What do you mean you don't have a start icon? Screenshot may help.

Thanks very much. I reinstalled and ticked yes to everything except updating grub :-) Still updating now. When asked which keyboard I selected generic 100 keys (even though I only have 80 keys) and all seems fine. Start icon - the three dots to open menu (I thought I read that was going to change to the leaf - but I don’t mind either way!)

Just as an update. 5.1 installed via updates on an eee pc 701 8gb drive. I have been using Bodhi since 2.4. Upgrade took quite a long time - over an hour. All working well and people have been working hard - thanks. Still disappointed that tap to touch and folders are not installed “out of the box “ been waiting for that since Bodhi 5 first came out (all there in Bodhi 4). I install Bodhi for my own use, family and friends and to revive old laptops and have limited knowledge of Linux - so adding something like making the touchpad work or folders for documents would be appreciated and I am sure many users would appreciate it too. I really love using Bodhi but would like these things to be a bit more straightforward. Presumably people who are faily expert can remove them easily enough if they don't want them!

Anyway - all installed and sorted now - great stuff.

Incidentally - dvd install is the only way I have found. Bodhi 5 will still not instal from usb. I get the "busybox" error message.

Ok so have a problem today. Unable to run synaptic or parted magic. With both I tried installing from software centre and also via command line, tried rebooting but get “Application run error. Moksha was unable to run the application: usr/sbin/gparted”.

Other installed software works fine - web browser, libre office etc. One from software centre and one from command line. Any suggestions?

Also a question - I remember in previous versions of Bodhi it was always recommended to keep Midhori as the default browser for using the software centre. Is that still the case? Thanks.

see my post on esudo changes

Any browser that supports apturl works with the software center. No particularly good reason to keep Midori unless you want to.

And please note this thread is on my alpha iso for BL 5.1, so topics unrelated please start a new thread.

5.1 has a more recent version of Terminology. If as you say the version on 5.0 is fully localized in Dutch, then evidently something happened on the source code side. Looking at Terminology commits I see you added the nl.po file in a pull request which was accepted. I did a git pull and rebuild the deb file. Only latter did I test the nl localization and noted it is still broken

Seems no one updated the meson.build file to actually build and add this localization

Ok then, I fixed that locally and rebuild the deb files so terminology should now support Dutch. Will be included in my next ISO.

Quick start has been modified to reflect the changes in the upcoming 5.1 release. The page that loads on first boot has been refactored to one HTML page located at /usr/share/bodhi/quickstart/quickstartEN/landing.html, and moksha has been modified to use that page instead of the Quick start index. It is all in the repos now and will be included in the next set of ISOs I make

Everybody Look it over and see if ya note any mistakes misspellings et al or have any ideas of further improvements.

the page looks nice and clean. the one issue i am seeing is that landing, index and internet.html all flash white and appear to show the old page before loading the new colors in firefox 73.0.1. they do not do so in epiphany (the only two browsers i have installed).
