7542020-12-082020-12-20Bug Reportelive-multiscreens | "Screen settings" not starting pro...UnconfirmedChrisPHL
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:
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:

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>
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/screenlayout/gui.py", line 318, in main
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
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:

                  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.

I tried to update my 3.8.12 64-bit beta installation with the 14 updates in “Software 3.30.6”. That fails.

[I do not appear to be able to upload an image file and hence cannot paste the screen snapshot I took.]

The message (in a semi-transparent overlay window) indicated:

Unable to download updates:

 744 2020-02-232020-02-23Bug Report find command error in /usr/bin/elive-health ClosedJack Holborn
Task Description


I got this error message while using elive-health from command line :

find: paths must precede expression: `/home/jack/.local/share/Trash'
find: possible unquoted pattern after predicate `-type'?

I found out that a ‘find’ command at line 100 of this script was incorrectly formatted, it showed :

find -type f "$HOME/.local/share/Trash" -delete

where it should be :

find "$HOME/.local/share/Trash" -type f -delete

So it prevents removal of Trash content.

Patch available, just ask!


 743 2020-02-062020-02-21Bug Report Gdebi-gtk unable to install .deb files ClosedStefano Lugli
3.x (beta's) Task Description

It looks like Gdebi-gtk is unable to install .deb files since (at least) elive 3.8.1.
THese are the reports from the forum:
“gdebi gui does not work, exits without doing anything, invoking this installation with terminal goes off well without problems”

“It dies silently without giving any errors”

The lack of sudo rights was excluded by Thanatermesis since users should be able to handle packages without requiring any root privilege by default (though further testing do not support this theory), moreover it looks like an Thunar related Issue.
A video is attached, showing me trying to “reinstall package” and “remove package” from the gtk. In both cases, as stated above, gdebi dies silently. Downloading the package from the main repository gives no issues (looks like). The same happens when installing a fresh program.
After trying with gdebi gtk, i run gdebi within a terminal. Without sudo rights, it exists without error stating “you need administrator rights!”, while running it with sudo installs the package without issues.
Need to find the roots of this evil behaviour to allow average users to install packages without requiring terminal knowledge.

 738 2020-01-062020-01-23Bug Report Huge installation crash ClosedThierry
Task Description

My test machine :
HP-Z620, no nVME BIOS support (and no chance to ever have it)
480GB PCIe nVME module, no option ROM (not bootable without BIOS support)
2GB USB stick, plugged on mother board (glued inside computer)
Multiboot : Ubuntu 18 LTS + Elementary Hera + Trisquel Flidas

USB stick : /dev/sda 1.8GB
/dev/sda1 fat32 210MB boot,esp * EFI partition
/dev/sda2 ext4 410MB * UBUNTU boot partition
/dev/sda3 ext4 410MB * HERA boot partition
/dev/sda4 ext4 410MB * FLIDAS boot partition
/dev/sda5 ext4 410MB * spare boot partition

nVME module : /dev/nvme0n1 448GB
/dev/nvme0n1p1 ext4 60GB * UBUNTU root partition
/dev/nvme0n1p2 ext4 60GB * HERA root partition
/dev/nvme0n1p3 ext4 60GB * FLIDAS root partition
/dev/nvme0n1p4 ext4 60GB * spare root partition
/dev/nvme0n1p5 ext4 200GB * HOME partition, common

Trick : USB stick is bootable, holds the EFI and BOOT partition of each system.
Each boot partition contains all necessary drivers to acces the nVME root partition
to finish associated OS activation.
Trick : the single HOME partition is shared and used by all systems (one at a time, obviously), each system having different users names, no need to explain why !!!

So far, so good, everything working like a charm.
Then I decided to install Elive on the spare partitions to test it.

I installed Elive 3.8.2 Beta using option “my disk is already partioned”, selecting /dev/nvme0n1p4 for ROOT (with format), then adding /dev/sda1 for EFI (no formatting), /dev/sda5 for BOOT (with format) and at last /dev/nvme0n1p5 for HOME (definitely NO formatting).
I did not understood the last installation step where I had to specify the boot partition of my other system ??? Which one, I have 3 bootable OSes ?! So picked Hera at random.
Elive installation successfully finished, I reboot the computer. All installed OSes are visible in Grub, Elive is default and I let it start, works nice.

The killing.
I decide to check that all my other OSes still perform well.
I reboot and select Hera as it was the system specified during the last installation step.
It starts booting, I get the Elementary logo, but never ending. I try again and again but Hera does not boot anymore, OS is definitely dead !
Flidas and Ubuntu boot normally, but impossible to log in, no users exist anymore !
I boot a live stick to analyse the HOME partition and I see it has been renamed to Elive_home and no other user than Elive exists. It is like renaming the partition has lost all existing data or the partition has been re-formatted.

At first I thought it was because I changed from default Xsystem to Enlightenment. Booted tonight and no sound, only the nvidia graphics HDMI connection showing. When the system boots I see a terminal wording about “perfectr” unknown hardware which I assume is the Audigy Rx card. The only OS that appears to be stable with Sound Card is Feren OS, Makulu Lindoz 15 and Sparky Linux 5.7. Zorin 15 Beta which is based on Ubuntu 18.04 only works with ALSA - then I have to reinstall PulseAudio to listen to sound with streaming video from Web as ALSA can’t cope with it.

 721 2018-09-102020-02-01Bug Report Old, unsupported graphics ClosedStefano Lugli
3.x (beta's)1 Task Description

I’d liked to test elive’s minimum requirements putting together some of the oldest piecies of hardware i have lying aroud.
I begun trying it out with a old motherboard, a sf2/661fx rev 1.1, which features sis integrated graphics/sis 964l (which is pretty common in old pentium 4 based office desktop computers), mounting a ‘01 2.44 GHz pentium 4 (https://ark.intel.com/products/27438/Intel-Pentium-4-Processor-2_40-GHz-512K-Cache-533-MHz-FSB), 512 mb 266mhz ddr ram and a classical ide hdd.
It looked like a possible common set up for older computers, and i was surprised finding out that there was no way to boot in graphical mode! None of the options given, either in pae or older kernel, not even the special graphics failing mode!
Then i added a vanta 16 (which i noticed in here was a often times used cheap af graphics card in older pentium 4s, as it was the msi nvidia tnt2 riva m64/m64 pro, which gave me the same results as the vanta being based on the same hw/drivers). Despite if i’m not mistaken it was supposed to support 76xx drivers (which should be avaialble in the repos), i needed to switch to the free drivers. It let me choose keyboard language and system language correctly., then when getting to the desktop it gave me a black screen :/ the mouse was visible though, so i think there must be a workaround (i will try to find it as soon as i have time)
then moved to geforce 2 mx200/mx400. Supposed to work fine with either legacy drivers 76xx or 96xx, both gave me several graphical errors. nosense screen resolution (like 600×480) and i was unable to use either the dock or the applications menu. Terminal took forever to open and everything was mostly unusable. Tried again with all the boot options, looks like working fine only using the free drivers options (both with the newer and older kernel). No graphics acceleration available, even if in windows 98 graphics acceleration was available.
Using the software acceleration caused a heavy load on the poor p4, which meant random freezes whenever it had to open an heavy application/installing something with apt-get (and the bottleneck wasn’t the ram or some sort of swapping, never hit 300 mbs of used ram!). Tried switching to e16, nothing changed.
The machine worked perfectly (and same for all the graphics options listed here)under windows 98/xp and debian stretch with i3-wm. Only issue was the sis chipset unable to elaborated 3d graphics for a lack of compatible drivers in linux, but i’ve been running q4os (debian jessie, later stretch, + TDE at the time) without having too much troubles. DE worked perfectly, at least

4.0 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

3.0 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 2018-07-012018-11-23Betatesting Multiple screens betatesting ClosedThanatermesis
3.0 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
