7612022-02-093.0Bug ReportAuto hibernate featureNew
2022-02-09 Task Description

In the stable version the computer automatically suspend / hibernate on low battery, I think we don’t have this feature in new versions of Elive since we don’t use e17 here, so implement this feature, using:


* use elive-pm tool
* feature elive-pm to create a temporal swap file if there’s no swap partition
* auto-detect we are not using the E17 (or other) feature
* what if we are in live mode?
* what if battery doesn’t works (dead battery, wrong number, or always to 0)

2022-02-014.0 Task Description

Just like google chrome, palemoon should be installed from an external repo mode, this will avoid having outdated versions lying out with the want to downgrade too

7562021-03-293.x (beta's)Feature RequestPower management configuratorNew
2021-03-294.0 Task Description

Elive needs a power management configurator for things like:

- behaviour for LID, autodetect also if the HD is mechanic in order to tell the user the dangers of keep runing the computer with the lid closed using those disks
- cpu speeds
- others?

 731 2019-05-023.0Bug Report Failsafe mode needed to boot or black screen appears Closed
2019-05-04 Task Description

Hi Luis,

I added this issue in order to know what is the cause that the other options gives you a black screen

To install in failsafe mode could remove some features so if you are able to install it in normal mode it could be better, so let’s investigate the cause

 713 2018-08-092.x (beta's)Bug Report emodule-places dont show SD cards Closed
2020-02-014.0 Task Description

In my old nettop ‘Acer aspire one’, the inserted SD memory card of my photo camera doesn’t shows in emodule-places unless “only ermovable devices” option is unset

Seems like we need to specify these values in cases that it is one of these cards, but in any case is needed to debug the output to see what it looks like

 708 2018-07-092.x (beta's)Bug Report Directory names should be not rewrited when different l ...Closed
2018-07-093.0 Task Description
  • 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
 705 2018-07-012.x (beta's)Betatesting Multiple screens betatesting Closed
2018-11-233.0 Task Description

The new multiple screens betatesting is ready to be used, this task will be to better track all that is needed to betatest:

How to use it: Everything should be automated, so just upgrade your system with the command “apug” and restart to a new desktop configuration (from elive menus), which is important too. It should detect that you have multiple screens and ask you to configure them, or use an existing configuration, etc in contrary case you still have the configurator available (only one now, which is an elive tool)

Things to betatest: This is the list:

  1. all the options and behaviours (what if select no, yes, save, not save, remove, etc), this is more or less already betatested by me
  2. try to disconnect the extra screen, reboot computer, your desktop should be equally functional (and I assume not asking/saying anything about)
  3. poweroff again the computer, connect again the extra screen, it should remember that configuration for your second screen and going back to these settings (without asking anything, i assume)
  4. there’s some games that changes your screen resolution (in order to play in fullscreen), if the game exits with an error your desktop is messed up (desktop running in a strange resolution), the normal behaviour is to return to the correct resolution when the game exits correctly, but i dont know if this happens or even if goes to the correct multiscreen mode. Also: a reboot should perfectly return to the normal behaviour
  5. maybe already said before, but switching between “using and not using” the external screen should be not a painful experience (and/or with reboots), it should be “work on the fly”
  6. ecomorph (special effects) should work correctly, except for the “exposé effect” which doesn’t seems to like it so much (confused numbers of desktops, etc, not sure if this one works better after the full implementation)
  7. detail: technically speaking, there’s two launching of the “load screen settings”, one happens before the desktop is loaded and the other when the desktop has started to load... in other words: if there’s a widget/question that asks for anything it should always happen when you already have access to the window controls (including window borders for example)
  8. since i found a strange behavior with the “automated fonts sizing calculation” feature, i include this betatest point: test if the font sizes are not reconfigured “smaller than normal”
  9. we have hotkeys to switch between virtual desktops, do we have a setup for between screens? i just tried to configure a new keyboard hotkey (ctrl + alt + shift + arrows) for switch to another screen 0/1 but doesn’t looks like to work on virtualbox... will need to do test in a real machine (and implement the hotkey in the default configuration)

Notes: if any of these betatests are not working as expected, please include the details of the “steps” about how to reproduce it, and the exact (first words) of the “conflicting” message found

 645 2015-01-152.x (beta's)Bug Report E resolution is fucked sometimes Closed
2017-08-273.0 Task Description

If you run something like “berusky” (small game, which don’t works in fact), it fucks your X resolution without possibility to recover it (BIG BAD BUG)

In short it seems like to: change your E resolution, don’t restore the original one, but E saves and remebers it

We should need a way to detect that the resolution was changed by FOO, when FOO finishes and some seconds passed change the resolution to the original one if we are not on it (not sure if this is possible)

Also, is needed to save the resolution on E confs only when we select to save it, seems like there’s a trigger that saves it automatically, this is very bad :P

Notes: betatest in e19 to see if the bug is solved (and so just cherry-pick the fixes)

 643 2014-12-262.x (beta's)Bug Report Most of .desktop doesn't respect XDG_DATA_DIRS Closed
2017-08-273.0 Task Description

XDG_DATA_DIRS defines the order to where to search for .desktop files, for example we have apulse-skype package that replaces a .desktop that is defined on a previous dir on this variable, this perfectly works if you run skype from menus (skype that requires pulseaudio using a pulseaudio emulator work in alsa-only), but if you run it from engage or from ibar, it doesn’t works (so looks like it gots the .desktop from the default dir instead of the one that we have defined), it doesnt works also from other places like “startup applications”

 642 2014-12-262.x (beta's)Bug Report E17 segfault when browsing the menu Closed
2017-08-273.0 Task Description

After to have opened the menu it frozen and then segfaulted, computer is a nettop, seems like nettops are much more prone to segfault since they are slower :)

 641 2014-12-172.x (beta's)Bug Report EXT4 mount problems in last versions Closed
2017-08-273.0 Task Description

I received these messages on IRC thanks to elmo40, but it doesn’t happens to me as you can see on this screenshot:

Still having the problem ? How I can reproduce it ?

<elmo40> Thanatermesis: did you get the message ?
<elmo40> AlexAnt couldn't read his existing ext4 partition while trying the latest live image.
<elmo40> (2:37:54 PM) AlexAnteMachina: ext4 is an unknown filesystem to elive??? really???
<elmo40> (2:51:41 PM) AlexAnteMachina: thunar rejects to access my hdd
<Thanatermesis> elmo40, thx, ill check that
 640 2014-11-272.x (beta's)Bug Report E segfaults when pressing power button + keyboard keys Closed
2017-08-273.0 Task Description

If you press the power button (which shows a menu option in E to close computer) and extremely-fastly you press any keyboard key, you got a segfault

This can help making it to appear: cd /tmp ; mprime-cpu -t
Also if you add a “drop caches” on that command should help too, giving you more human-time over computer-time

<PrinceAMD> what i think is happening here is
<PrinceAMD> an object is deleted, then a key pressed on the object causes seff
<PrinceAMD> so i think some check is needed in _e_manager_cb_key_down
<PrinceAMD> i'm guessing this is a keybinding bug, so lets say the binding trigger a call of a deleted pointer,
