1 Task Description


I upgraded my system to 3.0.4 and after that, while I’m working, very often, session end and GUI restart into log screen (usually I logged in automatically, because I’m the only user of my computer).

It’s a critical problem to me because I lost almost all work in LibreOffice even if I try to save my documents very often.

Even while I was writing this bug report my system crashed again. I’ll try to reinstall 3.0.4 or even returns to 3.0.3 version.

Hoping this bug will be solved.

Best regards.

7212018-09-102018-11-23Bug ReportOld, unsupported graphicsNewStefano 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

 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

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...

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.

Task Description

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)

Task Description

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 !

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...

Task Description

A lot of Techies doing reviews are using Oracle virtual box to try new OS and to make reviews.

I don’t know all the technical reasons behind it but why Elive cannot run at it’s full " Visual effects potential” within a VM ?

In my case I started products review project in french ( a new project I have on " Patreon”) and even if I was blown away by ELive, THe fact that I can’t show Elive at it’s Full potential when runned within a VM, I have delayed my review of Elive.

My simple tought was " I’ll find a time to install it on a real PC” and use Vokoscreen already within Elive but.... I don’t have that many PC’s :-) (3 : one to run my TV (ubuntu budgie), one on my laptop for work (EndlessOS as the HP stream is kind of slow... Ia tried Elive but was having problem with TouchPad ) and one on my desktop (that for now I want to keep it with the actual Linux distro...)

So even if the performance is not good, if it is technically possible for you to let Elive install itself " with it’s full GUI power " (sorry don’t know how to call it) within a VM, for sure I would do a french review and post it on my Patreon page, and on my LinkedIn Wall (18.000 connections). May be others Nerds would also make review of it on their Youtube channel / web site...

As I am impressed by ELive GUI when activated at it’s full potential, when installed on a real machine, I don’t want to record a video of the " Virtual BOx version of elive”.

I have 2 HP screens connected to my HP Compaq 8200 Elite Small Form Factor PC

When I boot Elive from the USB key, both screens are configured in a mirror config.

I can’t configure them differently ( Usually we configured the 2nd to be an extention to the 1st one)

Task Description

Dear Team,

great work, thank you.
But unfortunately I cannot boot after installation.
Or to be more specific... I can boot and all ttys take my requests...except of course tty7.
Or the main one booting... That one is black/blank...but i can kind of use my mouse as a curser.
This is exactly the same behavior I have when booting the live-stick with the default values.
But it works with the option “graphical problems”.
So imho I need the same boot option offered on the live-stick as “graphical problems”
for my main grub.
What parameters do I need to put in there... Or how can I fix this?
I will not use it as a live-system cause its just too damn inconvenient.
So please tell me how to get enlightenment to boot?
Otherwise I’ll have to back to ubuntu:(

Thank you and have a great day :-)

6882018-05-202018-11-23Bug ReportUtilidad de discos no abre el disco montadoUnconfirmedChrist
3.x (beta's) Task Description

Al ingresar a la utilidad de discos, se puede ver sin problema el disco duro y sus particiones. Pero a la hora de dar clic en “Montar”, se monta aparentemente en una ruta pero dicha ruta no existe. En otras palabras si monto el disco desde la utilidad de discos, el disco supuestamente se monta pero no se puede acceder a él desde la ruta que muestra en pantalla.

Ahora si ingreso al administrador de archivos, ahi se puede ver las particiones del disco y se puede acceder. Pero si doy a montar en la utilidad de discos, curiosamente se desmonta en el administrador de archivos. Ahí está el error.

Y este error ya lo he visto en versiones anteriores, pero en esta última sigue ese mismo problema. Y el error se presenta en cualquier maquina que se quiera probar el elivecd.

Saludos y larga vida a Elivecd, el mejor sistema basado en Debian !!!!!!!

 687 2018-05-132018-11-23Bug Report Main hard drive not detected ClosedMichael Molho
Task Description

On a laptop Lenovo ideapad 100S, I cannot install Elive on disk because the main hard drive (SSD) is not detected. Once booted in live mode, the list of detected drives showed by the Elive installer is empty. I also started Gparted which did not see my hard drive, only the USB stick.

I’m opening this bug but I will not be able to follow the resolution since I will not have access to this laptop anymore. It is just in case you can find the solution without my further help and inputs.

Thank you !


6862018-05-062018-05-06Bug ReportCan't change theme w/o crashing desktop unless switchin...UnconfirmedLawrence De Coste
Task Description

I even downloaded and installed the latest Beta 2.9.92 and the same thing? happened to me (Some of these are double clicks all left after the first one):
Right click on desktop→ Click on Settings tab at bottom right→Click on the Look button at top→Click on theme→Click on Basic theme[it has a checkmark next to it]→Click on Elive Light or Lucas since Dark is already chosen→Click Apply button

BOOM the bottom 20% of the dialog screen goes black and the mouse while movable can do nothing.
In less than a minute screen flashes and the “voice” says that “Elive desktop has initiated recovery”

BUT nothing has changed it’s still the Dark theme.

SOLUTION: Before clicking the theme you want to change to: Click on the Basic button in the bottom right→ Choose your theme to change to→Click the apply button.
The screen flashes again but this time the theme you chose is now the theme.

Task Description

Today I got an error from eltrans when trying to send an updated version of the g3-dialer messages in English. It says that my translations cannot be recognized as English. I have tried again twice, but to no avail. This also seems to explain why there are no updates coming from myself in the timeline anymore except for a very tiny one from yesterday.

Bug or something else?

Getting close to release, can you take down the current forums? I cannot suggest the disto to people , the first thing they do is go to the forum, and its mostly spam, not a lot of real content there. the main page is great, but the forums are a big let down to people I think. you need a nice new forum with the web page theme :~)
