4.0 Task Description

When I open software center I get a error warning say (something went wrong sorry). And also when theres updates the same software center says (Failed to install file: not supported). Not a programmer so hope someone can figure what is going on I noticed there is a newer version of gnome software center available but I don,t know how to install manually. Wish it could be in the software center repository somehow.

Task Description

I’ve just installed Elive 3.0.6 on an old Mac Mini (Core2Duo).
Since I want to make use of it as a media center, I connected to my TV. Because of the TV’s overscan function I cannot see the edges of the screen. :-/ When trying to start “Screen settings” I get two dialogs before nothing further happens:
1st:
Information
Use the next tool to configure your screens. If you want that Elive use it when starting the system you need to save the configuration.

There’s just an OK button, I click it:

2nd:
Question
You don’t have saved any configuration, so Elive cannot use it to remember your screens setup. Do you want to try again? You need to select the option to ‘Save As’ and type a desired name in the default location.

I can click No|Yes but whatever I do that’s it. No Screen setup window pops up.

When I manually start “Screen settings” from command line using “elive-multiscreens” I get the following python stack trace after clicking OK on the first dialog:

File "/usr/bin/arandr", line 42, in <module>
  main()
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/screenlayout/gui.py", line 318, in main
  force_version=options.force_version
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/screenlayout/gui.py", line 159, in __init__
  self.filetemplate = self.widget.load_from_x()
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/screenlayout/widget.py", line 93, in load_from_x
  self._xrandr.load_from_x()
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/screenlayout/xrandr.py", line 150, in load_from_x
  o.modes.append(Size(int(a) for a in d.strip().split(" ")[0].split("x")))
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/screenlayout/auxiliary.py", line 53, in __new__
  arg = tuple(arg)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/screenlayout/xrandr.py", line 150, in <genexpr>
  o.modes.append(Size(int(a) for a in d.strip().split(" ")[0].split("x")))

ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ‘1080i’

I’m able to circumvent the error by exchanging line 150 of with these lines:

              try:
                  o.modes.append(Size(int(a) for a in d.strip().split(" ")[0].split("x")))
              except ValueError as e:
                  print("Error on parsing screen sizes.", e)

After that the “Screen Layout Editor” opens and shows my display configuration.
Unfortunately there’s no easy way to just circumvent the TV’s overscan.

Please let me know if you need any further information on that issue.
