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)

Task Description

This is on 3.8.20 Buster based installation.

After a reboot, Elive updates and ….. offers to run browser from RAM. As the machine is low on RAM, I opt ‘cancel’ but the script runs anyway. There’s no way to cancel other than NOT selecting a browser to alter.

When starting from the commandline the script does quit immediately using the zenity ‘cancel’ button.

7562021-03-292021-03-29Feature RequestPower management configuratorNewthanatermesis
4.0 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?

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")))

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:

 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 Closedstoppy98
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.

Eltrans was the easiest way to get big parts of the os translated for free. It needs to go live again, so what is the problem that prevents it from working? Is there any way we could write a new version of it so you do not need to waste your time? In that case, what are your requiremetns and what kind of interface should we give it so that it can just be put in place of the older one?

 738 2020-01-062020-01-23Bug Report Huge installation crash ClosedTiti
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.
