Elive Bug Tracking System Elive Bug Tracking SystemElive: Recently closed tasks http://bugs.elivecd.org/ 2018-07-09T21:55:32Z FS#708: Directory names should be not rewrited when different languages are set 2018-07-09T21:55:32Z 2018-07-09T19:00:36Z
  • Install the system in Language A
  • New desktop configuration, selecting language B
  • Re-login in destkop, directory names wants to be renamed (not!!)

This is due to some gnome xdg pre-desktop launcher that knows the language of the system but not the one that we have selected in the desktop


  • Brainstorming: on which cases we should want to have the directories renamed? only from elive-topaz (statically english) maybe

FS#704: SubMenu is not showed all after clicking by mouse on desktop near right border 2018-07-05T15:19:16Z 2018-06-29T19:48:16Z

When I click by mouse on desktop near right border (of desktop), menu is showed all, but if I want to show submenu (for example “Applications” it is showed on the right side of menu and it is not showed all, only partially.

Could you fix it? For example show submenu on the left of mainmenu?

Just trying to help

I know it take money to use modern tool like https://www.discourse.org/ for forums

But I would try to make the whole Elive experience smooth... Not just the product

Everytime I try to post something on the forum, it oftentime rejectmy message because of words I used.. I am patient but not everyone will be...

The Chat tool look like some 1990 IRC Chat channel for techies only / IRC Look... Why not use something more mdern like Telegram ? Keybase.io ? Something fast, modern and that we can use easily from our PC, WEB or mobile phone...

If your target customers are TECHNIES, my suggestions are not important

But if it’s everyone who love technologie and want try new things, Everything need to be smooth : from the Chat, Forums tool, communications with the community in general...

THERE ARE A LOT OF DISTROS OUT THERE : I don,t know if it would help, but I would make ELive easier to try and download and make Elive so good/beatufil that word of mouth will do it’s magic and you’ll get more " PATREONS” ready to invest 1$, 3$, 5$ per month to support the project...

FS#703: Newbie questions ( forum do not accept those questions) 2018-06-29T00:59:31Z 2018-06-28T21:21:24Z

Sorry Elive forum tool does not allow me to post that and does not specify which words are not accepted....

In Ubuntu distros I am used to have a software that notify us of updates for the OS, kernel or the Apps I installed. How is it handled is Debian / Elive ? Do we need to keep our apps updated ourselves ? What about Kernel / ELive update ?

- New Kernel version :
is it better for us to not install more recent kernel versions available for Debian manually if there is one, should we wait that Elive team give us a go ?

- Installation manually of more recent version of software :
Is it ok if we install manually more recent versions of apps like libreOffice ? VirtualBox and so son...

are you ok with us using Snap or Flathub to install apps ? any comments are welcome.. for new users to linux, flat and snap are cool... But I don’t know all the cons...

FS#702: Keybase not running on Elive 2018-06-29T00:44:05Z 2018-06-28T19:01:20Z

From keybase :

I’m sorry, I’m not really an expert. I run Keybase on 32-bit ubuntu just fine. I assume you just need to upgrade your libc package, but I’m not sure.”

The applicaton I was telling you, the icon does not show in the system tray, as Dropbox or the others apps...

FS#693: HP Compaq 8200 Elite Small Form Factor PC AUDIO PROBLEM 2018-06-28T23:33:17Z 2018-06-09T18:21:07Z

FS#701: Audio and Video tunning needed 2.9.97 HP Compaq 8200 Elite Small Form Factor 2018-06-28T23:24:36Z 2018-06-28T14:02:15Z


1. Being able to change sound output without having to close apps for change to take effect ?
- I booted with 2.9.97.
- by default, sound was going out from my speaker connected to the built-In audio card on the pc.
No problems here. May be a visual indicator ( if easy) if we increase or decrease the volume would be nice. Not so important

BUT (PROBLEM 1) : Using AUDIO CONFIGURATOR If i change the sound output from PCH:HDA Intel PCH (Built in audio card) to “H540 Logitech USB HEadset 540” 1 need to close FIreFox ans chrome and open them again for the change of to take effect. I don’t know if it is a kernel thing but OS Itried, we can choose from where the sound comes out without having to close our apps.

Also : once I changed to Logitech Headset The Volume up key on the keyboard or on the headset do not work, it open the Sound Selector windows every time I press volume keys and if I close those windows, for each, I am getting an ERROR WINDOWS " Application Execution Error Windows”

PROBLEM 2: Even if I choose the logitech USB heasdet in the OS and in Vokoscreen, microphone does not work. Not recording my voice

2. VIDEO : How to I choose on which monitor the Application bar ( Panel ) at the bottom of the screen show up ? Be default is is showing up on the monitor on the LEFT but I want to have it on the other monitor ( one is HDMI the other VGA connecor in case it help)

FS#700: HP Compaq 8200 Elite Small Form Factor PC Sound Card problem 2018-06-28T14:31:44Z 2018-06-26T13:35:09Z

Really Trying to help :-) Even if I am giving you a hard time.
Disregard message below if Elive is target at experienced Linux people.

Intro :
I was attracted to Elive because
- I heard Debian was more stable and faster.
- As a former IT guy but still not a pro in Linux (been using for years as a user on my stations) my logic is that if Ubuntu is based on Debian, it make sense that Debian would be more stable, faster ?
- And when you say that it can run on old PC, I like to hear that too...
- And the amazing GUI / interface got my attention...

This morning :
I booted from my 64GB USB Stick with Elive last version 2.9.96 on my HP Compaq 8200 Elite Small Form Factor PC

My goal this morning was to use “vokoscreen” from within ELive to do a review in french about Elive amazing interface, Look, Speed to post on my French Review web site / and LinkedIn Profile. As I am really impress by Elive look and speed and respect passionate people like you trying make ELive known to the world (world or techies/nerds or general public, it’s another discussion)

But I think more efforts need to be put on hardware compatibility and ease of configuration.

Elive Experience A : HP Stream Laptop Model 11-D010, 32 GB SSD Hard Disk, 2 GB of RAM
Hard disk was not beeing recognized (but your tweak it / fix it WOW ) and not it can be install) BUT touch pad would not work and external display was not recognized.. I know It can happen sometime with older computer. But this laptop worked well on several Ubuntu distros I tried ( sound, External monitor, touchpad, everything)

Elive experience B : P Compaq 8200 Elite Small Form Factor PC
Booted from my main Desktop station from the 2.9.96 USB stick.
- Trying to configure the sound as I wanted was complex / not easy.
- Had to tried 2 or 3 sound configuration tool to finaly have the sound go out from my Logiteck H540 USB headset but I was not able to figure out how to make the Microphone to work (so I can speak while recording my review about ELive.
- and the sound configurator were not easy to use....

As for the monitor, for the sound sound, we have different tools included in ELive to try to make things work. for a Techie guy, hummm I can deal with it... but for normal technology fan that is not a programmer or nerds, I would try to make the experience smoother adjusting our screen resolution ( one easy intuitive.. Sound, one tool or applet and easy to use)

Here is an example of a normal sound selector we see in different distros. ( see picture )

One sec... tryin to find how to insert an image here... OK I got it, exported it to Dropbox and copy the URL ( easier forum tool needed)

FS#699: Make Elive Download process easier 2018-06-25T22:41:41Z 2018-06-25T14:54:32Z

Sorry for using this url to report suggestion. I don’t like the forum tool LOL

1) Trial : I know you want to live from Elive, but making it difficult to try it, with so many distros on the market, does it help you ? Just brainstorming, I am not sure neither. Exemple I signed as a patreon to give Elive " little amount” of money monthly, but I still have to wait 24 hours to try the last version ( as a patreon).

I asked to try the last version and the link I received is is not that simple, I clicked it and click USB and still endup on the page where I need to enter my email to get the trial in 24 hours... I am sure may have missed something but other will to... Wouldn’t be better to make it simple to try and cross your finger people will pay ( Patreon ) to support your “amazing” product ?

2) Everything is about perception : may be I would use more modern / good looking forum &tools for support (I know, money is needed to use tools as discourse [www.discourse.org] ) ? real techies won’t care about the support tools you use but may be other yes...

Can’t wait to try last version !
