    Hi Jeff, nice to see you back. The Chromebook image appears to be the first of its kind. I’ve been searching for an inexpensive laptop for the kids going into highschool (that isn’t a linux/unusable convertable latop) and that can run Linux/Ubuntu. They’ve tried ChromeOS and don’t like it for wordprocessing. Your image is just the thing! This makes me seriously consider buying the Chromebook. A couple questions: I couldn’t tell whether your install removes ChromeOS entirely? Okay if it does. Also, there are several models of the C720. Is your Bodhi ISO compatible with all of them?

  4. R.Rettig says:

    packages: deb http://packages.bodhilinux.com/bodhi trusty main
    sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv-keys ????
    what/where is the key for the packages?

    Thanks Jeff and Teams! 馃檪

    Bodhi so far is my Linux of choice for small and old computer, or
    Any computer that I want it fast! 馃檪

  9. Usuarioh RedeH says:

    Hi, Jeff! I would like to know if Bodhi linux 3.0.0 with E19.3 has any support to “Startup Notification”, I mean an animated, bouncing or hourglass mouse cursor, when you click any application and the mouse cursor gets bouncing or hourglass (it depends on the cursor mouse theme) until the program is completely loaded? If so, how can it be enabled? thanks!!!!

    I have used bohdi 3 as a live image with success and I am quite impressed. Enlighten is different from gnome or kde and I liked it.

    I would like to install it on my /dev/sdd (which bohdi shows it as a /dev/sde). On this drive I set aside a 300gig freespace partition on this 1 terrabyte gpt partitioned drive. I was not able to complete the installation. Even though I the installer saw it. It wanted me to assign /boot, / /home and /swap but I did not find the tools to do so.

    Can bohdi install onto a gpt formatted drive? When I told bohdi installer to use free space, it elected to delete some partitions on other drives and to distribute files amongst the disks. To protect my system, I quit to try different methods to assign / /boot /root / and /swap

    • The only partition you are required to assign to install Bodhi is a root partition (/). If you have questions about the specifics of doing this I would ask that you open a support request on our user forums.

      • Leslie Satenstein says:

        Hi Jeff,

        It was only by accident that during the install process I doubleclicked at the correct (slower than what I am accustomed to doing) speed for the partition subwindow to open. That done, I configured bodhi and booted the system.

        I did run into, for me, minor implementation issues. I chose French Canada as the implementation keyboard. It was setup correctly in the virtual terminal, but not in the gui. I explored and found the location and was able to correct.

        I was looking for where I could adjust the double click timing for the mouse. I did not find it.
        With those two items covered, Bodhi is alive and very well on my system.
        Very nice. Now to get into the mindset of enlightenment.

        • Take a look at the Quick Start guide for details on keyboard configuration in Enlightenment. Have any other issues be sure to open a support request on our user forums.

          • Leslie Satenstein says:

            Hi Jeff,
            I have no issues with Bodhi. I would however like to change the double click detection speed. I adjusted my double click speed to match the response time of my system. I would have actually liked to adjust the system to match my double click speed.

          • You can find mouse controls in the settings panel. If you need a hand with the specifics please open a support request on our user forums.

  11. Abdel says:

    I’m currently trying this release in virtualbox and so far it rocks. I only wish there’s a detailed tutorial of E19. I visited the Enlightenment Archwiki, but still I couldn’t find answers to many questions. For instance, and it may sound like stupid, but the truth is I’ve been looking for a way to hide/show icons on the desktop and couldn’t find one. Surely it’s there but I couldn’t locate it. Besides I’d like to know some other things like the difference between ibar and ibox and things like that. I’ve been able to find my way through some features like adding applications to the top panel but I’m also missing on a lot others. So I believe that a detailed tutorial of E19 will solve the problem.

  12. Phil Leo says:

    Dear Jeff, Im a noob trying to resuscitate a Dell 910 mini 1.6 N270 Atom 1 gb ram running the bloated Win xp. The evil Broadcom wireless 4312 chip 14e04 4315 is onboard. Will Bodhi run ootb? as I dont have a wired connection. Thx so much,phil

  13. Andrew says:

    The older versions used to have a Scientific Publishing package with all the dependencies, including TeXMaker, PDF Reader, and such.
    Not any more?

    • All of these pieces of software are in the software repositories. We do not currently have any “application packs” on the AppCenter as users should be able to select their own software. If there is demand perhaps we can re-add them.

  14. Eman says:

    I’m a past user of Bodhi Linux–one important question: Will I have to install any proprietary graphics drivers along with 3.0.0? My desktop uses an NVIDIA GeForce graphics card…congrats on the brand new release, btw…

  15. Saheel says:

    I am extremely excited to try Bodhi Linux. I was getting sick of all the unnecessary packages in my OS. Finally, an OS that lets me choose the software *but* does not expect me to install network drivers and other basic things (hint: slackware, arch).

    Really hoping Enlightenment is awesome enough for me to stick to Bodhi. Nonetheless, great job, guys! 馃檪 #respect

    • Keep in mind it is likely easier to remove Enlightenment from Bodhi and add a different desktop than it is to remove a bunch of stuff from something else.

      That being said – I hope you enjoy E. It is wonderful.

  16. Bob says:

    Dear Jeff, The file selector show nothing when applying new themes!
    i am using bodhi legacy

  17. christopher says:

    Thanks Jeff and team!
    Also thanks for the non-PAE version, keeping some good hardware from being obsoloete (thinkpad T42), and making the use of it an enjoyable experience. I like t think there is a shrine in a computers spirit world where they worship you for having brought them from XP all the way to Enlightenment. Can you imagine how this old PC feels, it’s forever young 馃榾

  18. Deane says:

    I have 2.4.0 installed. How do I upgrade to 3.0.0 without wiping everything out?

  19. F4uzan says:

    Hi Jeff !
    I’m a Linux distro enthusiast, I’ve tried Bodhi for two months and I loved it ! I tried the 3.0.0-RC2 and it’s so smooth, it also feels different (I’ve tried Enlightenment before on Debian, but it feels different when I try it on Bodhi)

    Great job, Jeff & Bodhi Dev Team !

  21. Deane says:

    I’m trying to install the new Chromebook version onto my Acer C720, but it’s not working when I try to boot into the hard drive. I had version 2.4.0 running fine, but for some reason 3.0.0 is not working for me. Any idea what could be going wrong?

  22. BeGo says:

    Yikes, just find it tonight,

    Initramfs problem on Bodhi 64. No problem in 64-RC2 back then, on different compi (I have 2 same type HP Pav 14 AMD 8 Laptop). Something wrong?

    I tried using safe graphics and the start up website is too small to read,just need someone to lead me to where the nvidia graphics card can be appied.

    S o sorry for my poor navigation skills.

    thankyou

  26. Zoffix Znet says:

    Just came to the site to see if Bodhi Linux project is still alive… Not disappointed 馃檪 I’m still rocking Bodhi 2.1.0 on Enlightenment 16.999… I guess it’s time to upgrade \o/

  27. samw says:

    Jeff, you be awesome. I am hoping that V3 will still run on my 2004 Gateway AMD-64 laptop. Your work has kept that beautiful machine alive. Granted, it still will run XP, but I have Excel on other machines.
    What is your take on the new RPi quad-core ARM?

  28. Lasse says:

    Thank you for your work. It is very nice to see that Bodhi is still alive. I can’t offer you my service and I’m just a user. But I like your linux distri.

  29. Booted the live CD under virtualbox on my Gluglug Thinkpad X60 under Trisquel and got a message telling me that Enlightenment SEGV’d — clicking recover seems to have worked, but it told me I was running “unsupported modules”? Not sure.

  30. Avra Neel says:

    Dear Jeff,congrats on your new release !!
    I’m a student and I have a really old computer running XP with 2gb ram, 1gb hard disk and other necessary things like keyboards and music systems.
    I’m interested in Bodhi Linux and have read the reviews and from that I think it could be perfect to do some real programming on it! 馃檪
    But before I take the plunge I hav a few questions to ask.
    Does Bodhi Linux require any device drivers? XP required so and it is a real pain to get those from the internet. And from what I’ve read before in this post it says that I require device drivers for 3d graphics.Am I true and can you tell me more such areas where you require this things?
    My second question and the most important one is this,
    I’m a programmer and I want a computer to program in it.Does Bodhi Linux support popular IDEs like Codeblocks for C/C++ and Netbeans for Java? If not then are there any other IDEs in which I can program in C++ and Java? And is a compiler like Gcc supported in this OS? Even if no IDE is there I will get this version of Linux as its lightweight,so programming in the command line is also ok for me but I could be happy if there is a guide to it.
    Thanks Jeff for your time and again congrats to this wonderful OS!!

    • Just give the live disc a try and see if it works for you. Bodhi will meet all of the needs you’ve listed here. If you run into any issues open a support request on our user forums.

  31. Jiminid says:

    Great job! Only prob I have is finding the theme packs for E-17 jthat you used to have for 2.3. Where are they?

    • You can find the E17 themes we officially support on the AppCenter. Any other themes you find are used at your own risk.

      • jiminid says:

        Thanks Jeff. I really liked the theme packs. It made it so easy to switch all the theme elements at once. Will any theme made for e-17 work? How do I install them?
        Thanks again! Keep up the great work!

        • Most all of the old themes need some major retooling – even for our E17 desktop. We will be adding fully functional themes to our AppCenter as they get updated.

          • jiminid says:

            Thanks. I’ll wait as patiently as I can. Nothing keeps my old celeron banger screaming like Bodhi!

  32. JC says:

    Thanks Jeff, loving v3.

  33. norvegh says:

    I cannot boot the live image. It tries to get the filesystem from /dev/sdb, which in my case is a CD-ROM. Also why is the need for unetbootin? Why just using dd does not work? Thanks, any advice appreciated.

  34. Raphael says:

    Hello, Jeff
    I was wondering if there you could try making an armhf tar.gz file for the nexus 7 (Bodhi version 3.0.0)? If not could you tell me of some way to make one myself? Also if I install an older version of Bodhi on my nexus 7 could I update it to 3.0.0?

  35. Steve says:

    Hi,
    Could not get mobile broadband (O2 Ireland) to work. Tried two modems and to laptops; no luck. Is there an answer? Previous to Bodhi 3.0 I had no problems.

  36. Timothy Rivera says:

    Sorry, but Bodhi 3.0.0 is a disappointment. Bodhi 2.4.0 was much better. I don’t know exactly what the reason is. Perhaps its E19. Bodhi 3.0.0 appears to be more buggy. It appears Enlightenment is treading the same path as Gnome, not improving but getting worse. I’ve been a long time fan of Bodhi and its regrettable that I switched to Lubuntu. I miss Bodhi 2.4.0 and don’t really want to use Lubuntu. Sorry for the bad feedback but I hope its constructive. I know your team worked hard despite the very long and frustrating wait. Is there a way that I can install Bodhi 3.0.0 but return to E17, and the look & feel of Bodhi 2.4.0?

  37. Richard says:

    I have version 2.4.0 installed in one of my machines. Is it possible to switch to the latest versions without having to refresh everything? Also people seemed to have some bugs in Bodhi 3.0.0. Is it stable enough now? Sorry for too may question, that’s my main office machine. So just being a little careful.

    • aeonius aeonius says:

      No. Any time there’s a major update, which is the x in x.y.z (as in 2.4.0), you’ll have to start from scratch. As for it being stable, I’d say yes, best way to find out is to try.

  38. Wolfgang says:

    Hello
    I have a problem with LIN Habu, an accounting program from Mc judge.
    Under Ubuntu, it runs without problems under the Bodhi panels are not displayed. Can you help me with this problem?

    greetings from Germany

  40. Ron says:

    Decided to give Bodhi a try again. I used it a few years back on and old HPDV5000 laptop – the only distro out of the box, I found, that supported the Broadcom wifi card it had. I am trying it out on some old Dell “D” series laptops – an 820 and a 620. My go to (I use in in conjunction with windows to do my work) at this time is Mint in XFCE, but I have had a soft spot for Bohdi since the old – now defunct HP. Not sure if you guys are interested in user test feedback (I look into various distros to see if they can fit a productive niche – I will specifically be testing how well I can use MyPaint and Inkscape cross platform between Bohdi and Windows, as well as drawing tablet support – which will be dependent on the kernel). I will check to see if you have a place for that kind of thing. Love the fact that it is a fast interface regardless of how old the hardware is! Still love the default original theme.
    All the best on this interesting distro!!!
