Bodhi Linux – Pure Enlightenment

Bodhi Linux 6.x comes with a choice of Window Managers, either Moksha Desktop or Enlightenment. Discrete Bodhi installation ISO’s have been created specifically for each, your decision on which to use is made before installation.

Although functionally similar (Moksha being a fork of Enlightenment) there are one or two significant and many subtle differences between the two. Depending on how familiar you are with Moksha Desktop will influence how easy/challenging you’ll find the transition between the two.

What are the main differences between Moksha & Enlightenment?

There is a comprehensive forum post on this very subject. Please follow this link for further reading.

This is performed by creating a custom Key Binding

With Key Bindings Settings open, click “Add“, key your Binding (WinKey + Space), then in the Actions pane (n the right), select the option “Show Everything Launcher” and click “Apply“, then close. If successful, the key binding WinKey + Space will now open the Everything Launcher
