Is there going to be a new show desktop button in FC 2? I think that
button is very useful for some people but it breaks the look of the
Bluecurve with the GNOME default icon and the square around it. I think
anybody who likes the Show desktop button and the Bluecurve theme would
agree with me.
In order to have quick access to frequently used apps I have added a
panel on the left side of the screen with icons and drawers. The desktop
is shifted to the right by the width of the panel. Unfortunately, when a
new window opens it will appear under the panel, because applications
are not aware that the desktop is now smaller. The same is true when
moving the panel to the right or top of the screen. Oh btw, why has the
menu panel disappeared, it looked nice in Gnome 2.2.
Is this a known bug? If not, please add it to the list ;-)
Thanks, kind regards
Hi all. My monitor is not in the list of monitors for Fedora Core. I've
managed to set it up for the maximum resolution as per the manufacturer.
Is there someone I can just submit a slice of my XF86Config file to to
have it included in Fedora Core 2?
Thanks and cheers,
As some of you might have noticed we have started building Gnome 2.5 in
rawhide now. This will take some time, especially since some parts
depend on Gtk+ 2.3.2 which isn't out yet. Things might be pretty broken
while this is going.

I know I can navigate the main menu, find an item and drag it to the panel so
that I can quickly launch that item by clicking on the icon in the panel, but
how about an entire menu item ("directory"?) that has several individual items
In Redhat 8, I managed to do this and was very happy with it. I spend my day
running xterms on remote systems, so it's nice to easily click on a small
panel icon, have a menu pop up, and then select an individual item to be
I believe I set this up in Redhat 8 by making the menus, populating the menus
with items, then dragging the menu to the panel.. So for example, "Remote
Shells" appears next to Applications and Accessories and might contain 10
different launchers for remote shells. "Remote Shells" would also be an icon
on my top panel with the same 10 launchers.
Is this still possible? I've been fighting my way through the documentation
I've found, but I do get lost between the standard GNOME documentation for
these things and Redhat/Fedora customizations..
PS. I've just upgraded from Redhat 8.0 to Fedora Core R1 -- Nice work, folks,
I am VERY impressed.

Could you tell me how to open files in .ai format?
The splash screen seemed a bit of old in fedoracore1 directory, I remembered that was the default wallpaper of rh9. :)

Why redhat/fedora used i386 generation code for rpm compilation? Will this make a dropback of total performance?
Will the fedora team release some i586,i686 packages, or both i386 and i586 for a update version?
Since the bluecurve theme was updated with the new window controls,
they've never quite felt right to me. At first, the smaller size
bothered me, but Garrett addressed these issues and after using it for a
while, the size doesn't really bother me anymore.
It occurred to me the other day that part of what bothers me is the soft
color scheme. They don't look clickable like all other GTK buttons do,
and I think it's because they aren't the matching bluecurve "metal/chrome".
I've done a quick mockup to show the bluecurve window controls as
chrome, rather than the blue-ish versions in there now:
The trouble is, it's a little more utilitarian looking - though I do
think the controls look more clickable. Thoughts, comments, and
criticism are all encouraged.
Also, for reference, here's a screenshot showing the bluecurve classic,
current bluecurve, and my mockup controls all together:
