Leafy Linux

Here is some information, about what I have done to original Bodhi 1.3.0 before making distribution disk from it. I wanted to make similar distribution like Bodhi, so made it on top of it, but added some software, which allows to do some basic tasks and a bit more. I have not included all E17 themes or Icons packages, because what the point of it. Also here are no packages for printing and scanning, because they simply did not worked with my new hardware, but I have included Bluetooth software. I have chosen light approach at some corners, for example did not installed adobe reader, but used instead of it Envision, it was made this way, because in most cases I need only to read .pdf file, not to edit or copy from it. Light-office was chosen instead of LibreOffice, because there are still some comp-ability issues with MS Office, and simple editors will by enough for basic tasks, also we can use online Live office in case of need. Did not include tools for installing video drivers, because some users have simple laptops, with Intel video card, and then they will get some unneeded applications. Installed all updates until 2012.02.06:

Made this as Dist with custom E17 profile for 15.6 laptop, hope it will work on other machines (tested only on desktop pc, virtual-box)
Made to run my custom profile (faster when all you want to do, simply boot in to system), you can still change to default ones in Settings Panel.
Making to run custom profile might cause E17 seg error.
You can install this Bodhi Leafy, by running setup file, which is in desktop folder. After install you can delete that file safely.
