Hi there everyone! New to Bohdi linux, and am not the most advanced user of Linux in general. After playing around in the Live Boot, I decided to install. I know this'll be different to what I was using before (Linux Mint), but I embrace change (and I wanted a lighter distro kek). Anyhow, I digress. I'm on 5.1 Apppack (and I plan to enable kernel updates for security), and have 3 questions.
Thank you so much! Loving Bodhi so far - if these niggles are all sorted it'll be even better! EDIT: Fixed all these myself, but now have new issues. My headphones (wired) are really glitching out with this distro. It switches between doing soundnormally and exclusively playing it out of the left ear. Help? It works with my other headphones.
Also, the tiling module seems not to be working. I drag apps to the side of the screen and their size does not change.
Finally, when I turn on my computer it boots to GRUB, how do I set Bodhi as the default?
If your other headphones work, but certain pair is flakey and only only works in one ear sometimes, I suspect, its hardware problem, maybe just a loose connection. If they're valuable headphones, try replacing the connector...Cut of the connector at the end and put on a new one. Or check where the wiring attaches to the left speaker, maybe just needs to be soldered.
GRUB does allow various customization. You can always have it boot a certain choice by default or boot previous by default. You can control if the menu is displayed or not and for how long, or how long you get to push Esc to bring it up. You can even theme it if you want. Most of this is done by editing /etc/default/grub then running the update-grub command to apply the changes. All of this should be in standard grub documentation tho, nothing bodhi specific. If I wanted to edit those config files I'd lookit up too, probably with a web search like "grub2 set default" or something.
There is a tool for it called grub-customizer if you dont want to mess with config files yourself.
sudo apt install grub-customizer
That command will install it for Bodhi 6 (as it is provided in focal repository). For Bodhi 5, if you want to do that, you'll have to add a PPA first, then above command willw ork.
