Bodhi Linux 4.3.1 Unscheduled Update Released

It seems like just yesterday that I was posting about Bodhi 4.3.0… Oh wait, it was just yesterday. In a friendly reminder that I am still human – we had a pretty major issue with one of the Bodhi 4.3.0 discs. Most issues we can simply patch via the package manager after the fact without releasing a new set of ISO images, but this issue was fairly unique. The new system was failing to add the official Bodhi repository to the installed system. Because of this I’ve published a set of discs with the 4.3.1 version number.

You will only be affected by this issue if you installed Bodhi 4.3.0 using the “Standard” release. You can manually add the missing repository to your new Bodhi 4.3.0 system by adding the line:

deb xenial b4main

To your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

Find the shiny new 4.3.1 release discs below. Please seed the torrents if you can spare the bandwidth.

Sorry for any confusion this may cause. Please keep in mind that Bodhi is a labor of love for all involved and does not make much money. If you want to help keep the lights on please consider making a one time donationbecoming a member by making a yearly contribution of 50 USD, or by picking up some Bodhi branded Merchandise.

Special shout out to community member amerigena for making us aware of this issue. As always a big thank you to everyone who helps make Bodhi possible.

    For those of us Users that have bodhi64 4.2 64bit is there an auto upgrade/update to 4.3.1?
    For those of us with 10+ years old PC’s and Legacy 4.2 32bit installed is there an auto upgrade/update to 4.3.1?
    If not how do we get release 4.3.1?

    I was wondering if your team figured out yet, how to make the click on desktop menu flip automatically, to scroll to the other side, when one clicks close to the right side of the screen?
    Our laptop screens are all in 16:9 aspect ratio (tablets too). Keyboard and touchpad are off-center to the left, with keypad on the right. It is a good idea to “glue” application window to the left edge, not the right. That centers it more in front of us. Better ergonomics. That gives us a space on the right, for things. Either widgets, or notepad and calculator or other small things – I move the menu bar (shelf, or whatever a flavor of linux chooses to call it) to the right edge. That gives more vertical screen real-estate where needed.
    That also means, if we arrange things for correct ergonomics, what we’ll be clicking on the desktop in that right-sided area. Hence, why that menu should automatically switch sides with it is out of space. Programs have been functioning like this for decades – even before Linux even existed.

    Hence the question, has it been fixed?
    thanks 🙂

    The response to “how do we get release 4.3.1” seems to be missing.
    What is the process to upgrade from 4.2.0 to 4.3.1?

    Running apt update and apt list upgradable gives me:

    running eepDater gives me the following in addition to the above (I had to type them in since there is no way to copy the contents of eepDater):

    Why are the lists different?
    I will run the update to eepDater to see if Bodhi is upgraded from 4.2.0 to 4.3.1. All of my previous upgraded have been done with apt upgrade or apt full-upgrade.

    Running the upgrade with eepDater did in fact upgrade bodhi which apt full-upgrade did not do 3 days ago. Why did the command line not get those packages? Does bodhi use a different command line tool than apt?

    • When you are running updates using the cli be sure you are using the dist-upgrade argument or some packages will get left behind on occasion. This is the command the graphical tool uses to pull in all updates.

      So for example: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
