New Review


I did a review, print and audio, of Bodhi 5.0.0 for my podcast, Distrohoppers' Digest Episode 003. I think it was quite positive. I hope you enjoy it. I'm sure there are inaccuracies somewhere, but I hope I've drawn some attention to the distro.

http://distrohoppersdigest.blogspot.com ... there is a link to add the podcast to your podcast app if you'd like.

On a side note, I'm going through immigration issues getting my Canadian wife to stay here, which takes a lot of money... and as soon as we get those completed, I intend to donate to this project on a regular basis.

I don't know why the lights were down but they should be pretty persistent. If you couldn't find it up try again. At least one of you liked it and I appreciate that.

Yep, good. I read the transcript...

One thing I bet I can answer, you comment you don't know why you needed to install bodhi-printing for printing to work. I think that's because Bodhi is trying to be a minimimal distro, where you can install what you need if you need it, but things not everyone needs are not installed by default. That includes printing support. I discovered the same thing myself, printer drivers aren't enuff when you don't have basic printer support installed yet.

You mentioned arandr and how it doesn't save settings; they've improved that in test versions, wouldn't be surprised if its included with next point release.

I cannot imagine why Bodhi would not include that file. Nearly everyone loads printers, don't they?

As for AR&R, all you have to do is add it to the Startup Programs. But I agree that you don't have to do that with any other distro (Displays is part of Settings).

Actually no they don't. Maybe most ppl. Bodhi's philosophy is Bodhi is a base you use to build the kind of system you want. If I am not using printers do i really want CUPS running in the background? Lots of processes running in the background is what makes some distros considerably slower than Bodhi. Getting a linux supported printer working in Bodhi is a trivial task.

As raster once said regarding e17:

Quote:
Our typical user is not 'your grandmother' (or whoever is rolled out on the occasion of pointing to a novice computer user or one who knows nothing about them). Our typical user is someone who is keen to explore something new and different. Someone who wants control and power. They are probably already familiar with Linux and have reached the limits of what they have and want to push the boundaries.

E17 originally had display settings options in the settings panel and menu. This got removed in the fork to Moksha. The reasoning was the code did not always work and x11 changes made obsolete the randr code in Moksha/e17. Bodhi switched to using third party tools such as arandr. Perhaps I should say switched as I seem to remember such tools being installed on old Bodhi releases. Moot point tho.

Currently we provide arandr and it works well as far as I know in most circumstances. As noted before the version in our testing repo has support for Moksha 'coded in.' It will add the changes to startup for you. Give it a try. Unless there is some major issue reported with it, it will be added to our main repo upon the release of BL 5.1.
