Owen Taylor told (on the fedora-devel-list) that the Luxi/Nimbus fonts
were the default for aesthetics reasons. I'd like to know what you think
are the best fonts for the Fedora desktop. Is it Vera ? Nimbus/Luxi ?
Any other free font ?
PS: If that's not the right place to ask, just tell me. I posted here
because Michael K. Johnson suggested me to open a discussion here.

I was quite upset when FC1 was launched, and the following bug was
allowed to permeate through:
I know this is a gnome problem, but... It really isn't.
Here is the question I ask: Is there any one focus mode that's any more
important than another? Let's say if sloppy focus were borked, would we
still have allowed for a broken Metacity to be shipped in FC1? I highly
doubt it. As outlined in the above URL, the problem is the focus method
of: Sloppy Focus w/Click to Raise.
I'm sure tons of people used this focus method, but were quite perplexed
when they could no longer simply click anywhere on a window to raise,
and had to actually click on the title bar.
At any rate, This is my wish for FC2, to be able to have the focus mode
fixed. I have not been able to update my wife's desktop from RH9 to FC1,
as she uses this focus mode(so do I) and can't live without it.
Thanks for your time,
PS. I sent this to this list, as opposed to fedora-devel because it is a
desktop issue, not an internals issue. If someone feels this should be
directed to fedora-devel, let me know.

What would be involved in trying to get another desktop officially into
I am thinking of ice, for those people with machines without much
memory, or who just wish a lightweight window manager. But I am meaning
this question to be more general.
So far I have come up with the following list.
Well maintained rpm.
Bluecurve theme (on by default)
Menu structure consistent with other desktops
Integration into gdm and/or desktop switcher
stamp of approval from Garrett
stamp of approval from rest of Fedora governing body
Am I missing anything?
And on a related note, if one were to get the first 3 or 4 done, is it
even feasible that the stamps of approval will happen, or will this be
something that will only get into fedora-extra?

I think this would be a good topic of discussion. personally I would
like to see more beta software included things like: Mozilla 1.6, Gimp
version 1.3.23 evolution 1.5, even Garnome instead of gnome. After all
that isn't what fedora is about being the tip of the sword. I'd like to
hear the opinions of others on this subject.

File under really picky-but-every-detail-counts:
Using the default Fedora login/theme/background, right before the login screen
show, you see a blank screen with a blue background - then the login screen
comes up with the same background, but there is a quick blank/white flash before
the login screen. You get the same thing after you submit the login form.
Is this just something unique to a particular video card / driver set, or is it
something common in all installs? Any ideas why it happens and if there's
anything we can do to eliminate it?
Here are a couple of backgrounds that I would like to share for possible
old_paint.jpg is the side of an abandoned train car (still on the tracks)
old_paint2.jpg is another of the train... not sure about it though.
the last DSCN* is a window sill on a building downtown where I live.
For some reason when I updated from RH9 to FC1 I lost me Red Hat Icon
and now have the Gnome Foot :( I see there is talk about creating a new
Icon for this purpose so I am assuming there is some way to change it. I
would be happy to go back to the Red Hat for the time being... or
anything thing other than the foot. I seem to be able to change all
other icons on the panel but that one. Can someone tell me how to change it?
Hi, I just posted this to the "standard" fedora-list, but later I found
this list, which seems much more appropiate.
Given the facts that Fedora makes its own builds of Mozilla, and that
BlueCurve is the default "look-and-feel" of the distro, it would be very
nice if we included the BlueCurve Mozilla theme with the Mozilla RPMs,
and make it the default.
The theme can be found here: http://www.users.bigpond.net.au/gavindi/
I don't know how "official" this theme is (it isn't at MozDev...), but
it's complete, works very well, and Mozilla looks much more integrated
to Fedora with this.
I don't know if this is the right place to make such a sugestion... if
it isn't, please, could you be so kind of pointing me to the right
place? I really would like if someone in charge of this kind of stuff
had a look at it.
