Bodhi Linux 5 – Ubuntu Based Distro – Moksha Desktop

I take a quick walk around Bodhi Linux 5.0.0 and its Moksha Desktop. Bodhi developers have taken the Enlightenment 17 Desktop and customized it into their own creation. The Moksha Desktop offers plenty of eye candy and a plethora of settings options. Bodhi Linux is based on Ubuntu LTS releases and version 5.0.0 is based on Ubuntu 18.04. The next release of Bodhi Linux looks to be in the works and will be based on Ubuntu 20.04. Bodhi Linux is built with the bodhibuilder tool, a fork of the old Remastersys code that is kept up-to-date by the Bodhi developers. Bodhibuilder can also be used on Ubuntu and its derivatives to build your own respin of Ubuntu.

Here are some of the essential links:

Before you go any further in reading this, please know that this was my first time trying bodhibuilder. Hahaha! I will readily admit that I may have missed "something".

I had some free time yesterday, so I built a JWM system from the 64 bit Ubuntu 18.04 mini.iso. Set the system up, and then I installed bodhibuilder for 18.04. First, I tried making an .iso that you could "distribute" to others. Tried it in virtualbox, and it didn't recognize the login name or password. Tried it live from a USB and got the same results. Not sure if it was an issue on my part or bodhibuilder. I never was able to get past the login screen.

So…
I made an .iso that was a "backup" of the installed system. That time, it recognized the username and password, but the installer would never open. I tried opening the installer from the menu, from /usr/share/applications/ and from the terminal. It never opened in any instance. I waited for several minutes each time to no avail. Even when trying to open it from the terminal, the terminal gave no output to help me deduce what the problem could be.
Not looking for answers ez…just giving my experience with it in case it interests anyone. I don't fault Bodhi…it was probably something that I did wrong. LOL!

Hi, very good video 🙂
and the same time, I'm looking for someone can try/test my conky and gives his opinions.
I have a nice one right here : https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/gNS62Cxz3y/ you have to create empty file call it conkyrc, copy ubuntu pastebin and paste in conkyrc.
If you try it, you have to install 'lshw, acpi, inxi, lm-sensors, hddtemp, conky-all) conky-all is under debian and ubuntu base, under arch linux or arch bases is conky-lua-archers in AUR.
This conky is build for a laptop with 1080p screen, if you have less than 1080p, you have to made some modification to edit the conky (gap_y =??} or lines 29
Please try and give me your opinion, if you wish you can do a video about it.
Thanks you.

P.S. Sorry about my language my first language is not english.

I tried Bodhi many years ago before they developed Moksha…when it used Enlightenment. It was beautiful and light…but I could never wrap my head around all of the settings. I used to tell people that it had settings for the settings of the Settings. Hahaha! Glad to see Bodhi still going strong!

Thanks, eznix. Bodhi is a bit different compared to most but well worth a look, especially if you like playing around 🙂 Maybe when the next version based on 20.04 comes out I'll have to have another look AND be a bit more patient in doing so lol. As always, I appreciate your thoughtful content 🙂

I'm looking for a sane desktop that is made by sane people and Plasma ain't it. It's plagued by populists and demagogues. They are speaking so much bullshit. Not all of them. The newcomers. Thank you eznix.

Thanks you Eznix for a good video on a old but cool looking OS. Great Job!!!
I am not a fashion statement and most of my desktops reflect that and are not changed much from the defaults other that my Conkys that I use all the time and a background wallpaper. I use Cinnamon (as You know) DE on most of my Linux boxes and I just use whatever themes that come with them as a rule.. Like I said Plain… Lol

It is a little quirky since the desktop is different than most, but I remember once I got it figured out, I had a very positive experience with Bodhi. High level of eye candy and functionality but very low on resources.

I used Bohdi and really liked it I also used the Flame module install to make the bottom of my screen have a nice touch very underated distro.

My run with Bodhi was also short and I did like it but I can't seem to stay away from Arch and Debian and their derivatives.

I am currently using bhodi 5.1 as a daily driver, and apart from a few quirks here and there that could be sorted out, i am enjoying it a lot. Thank you for excellent, truthful and informative content as always….
