system: elive 1.8.8 (downloaded from elivecd.org) installed on inspiron 1520

the default language is us and it is OK... the problem is when i change the keyboard layout to estonian in elpanel, the output of the keys is totally mangled. it looks something like a mix between webdings and chinese

since the layout is NOT giving latin letters, the user is unable to log in. this is a big problem for those new users trying out linux/elive... they have no idea how to fix xorg.conf themselves.

logging in from command line i was able to see that the xorg.conf had “et” as a layout instead of “ee”

after changing the layout to “ee” manually, everything works again

Task Description

Wireless Settings, does not work using Elpanel Icon, manual iwconfig commands work fine. Using iwconfig wlan0 essid myssid does set and associate with my base router; iwlist wlan0 scan does list the many networks around me; dhclient wlan0 does get an IP from the server.

None of which happens from the icon based script(?) but just sits there running continuously (for 4-5 minutes atleast.) After doing a manual setup, the Status for wlan0: window does list the correct state.

wlan0 is an Airlink pci .11G card, works with many other distros’ wizards, e.g. Mepis, Puppy, Sudix, some of the BSD’s that I have tried.

(As I have just a few machines on line that don’t change, I use Mac Filtering and neither WEP nor either WPA.)

The machine running Elive is a relatively new GeForce6100SM-M MoBo with an Athlon 64×2 and 1GB of ram.

 441 2009-07-182010-01-20Bug Report window disappears when using sticky mode and elive-comp ...Closedshunt
Task Description

I like using “Sticky mode” (i.e. traditional X sticky so it sticks on all desktops)because I keep one terminal window with a screen session on all desktops.

When setting “Sticky mode” for a window, window often spontaneously disappears or moves somewhere else. Temporary solution is to left-click on desktop and click “Lost Windows” and find it there. The window will then usually be found on desktop 0:1.

I am using dual-monitor configuration with both monitors as one desktop with elive-compiz. I do not have this problem on single-screen elive-compiz on a laptop, so this is probably some kind of issue with X and twinview/xinerama.

Thanks for the most awesome distro ever.

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...

I figured it would work... because when you hover over the Elive symbol in the background image... it will ripple around the symbol just fine, and actually looks pretty cool. So I wanted to apply this effect to the background image... but it didn’t work. Not a big issue, but thought you would like to know.

  • Wave/Ripple background software switch effect not working properly.
  • Ripple effect when hovering over backround symbol works fine.

2.0 Task Description

Im using Elive 1.7.7 and i chose to use synaptic mouse driver, if i plug in an usb mouse it behaves like i am always double-cliccking.
This shows some problems with many program, and menus.
Is not possible to revert to normal functioning unless using the synaptic one which works perfectly.
