I know there is a way to change then bg color of the login screen with
the KDE Control Center. I have done that. I have also changed the bg
color of the splash screen by editing the Xsession file. It is now a
nice soft green. But what I can't figure out is how to change the BG
color of the screen that shows briefly just before the login screen
becomes active. It is currently the default blue.... I would like to
change it to white. I assume I can change something to #ffffff in a
file somewhere.... Does anyone know what file this would be?
Tipping my hat to Fedora.
The Fedora Project will be adopting a revolutionary new Input Method
system in the upcoming release of the Fedora Core 2. We would like to
extend an invitation at this time to East Asian users in particular to
test this preliminary release and provide us with feedback so we can
improve the software and ensure that the Input Methods will be easier,
more efficient and pleasant to use.
Intranet/Internet Input Method Framework (IIIMF) is the next generation
Input Method Framework set to replace the legacy X Window System Input
Method (XIM) used by existing Input Methods such as chinput, xcin,
kinput2, ami and many others. As the technology is still at its infancy,
wider testing effort by community is needed to expediate the maturity of
IIIMF server loads Language Engines (LE) dynamically at runtime as
requested by clients. In this first round of testing, four LEs are
+ iiimf-le-inpinyin for Simplified Chinese (zh_CN.UTF-8)
+ iiimf-le-xcin for Traditional Chinese (zh_TW.UTF-8)
+ iiimf-le-canna for Japanese (ja_JP.UTF-8)
+ iiimf-le-hangul for Korean (ko_KR.UTF-8)
If you wish to participate in this first round of testing, a Testing Guide
is now available at <URL>. It will give you the necessary information in
setting up the IIIMF and using the LE specific to your locale.

That is probably a good idea as it is an enhancement.

I'll have another look at the list myself. I noticed others are and have been
doing this as well as part of bug triage.

Moving to fedora-desktop-list(a)redhat.com. Prolly more appropriate, hope
you don't mind.

Yes, I think that's the only sensible way of doing it ... gnome-panel
2.4.0 seems to have been a pretty broken release.

I'm not sure what bug you're referring to here.

Yeah, should be straightforward. The docs are in the user-guide AFAIR.

I think its a good idea, yes, but I probably will only do it for FC2.
Should be straightforward too.
I'm still going through gnome-panel bugzilla for the first time. When I
get through it, I'll send you on a list of bugs which will be fixed in
the update and you can let me know if I'm missing any important ones.
Some we'll just punt until FC2, obviously.
There was some talk a while back on this list about trimming down the
list of screensavers included in Fedora Core. By my count, there are 177
screensavers included (let me know if I've got some installed from
somewhere else or something, but I don't think so).
I've gone through the list and tried take a shot at identifying which
screensavers should stay in Core and which should go.
I tagged each screensaver as wither Ok (it should stay), Drop (let's
lose it), and Kill (once that should really go).
First, the "Ok" list - these screensavers all seemed pretty professional
and I think would be an ok default set.
Next, the "Kill" list - these ones seemed unprofessional or just plain
wacky enough to drop alltogether:
Finally, the rest of then, my "drop" list, I didn't think were worthy of
being included by default, but could live in an Extras package:
I just upgraded from RedHat 9 to Fedora Core 1 by using apt-get (wow, it
was easy, I was impressed). Unfortunatelly I don't really like how
gnome-terminal looks in Fedora.
I used the default settings in RedHat 9 and I still use the default
settings in Fedora, so the selected font in gnome-terminal is "Luxi
Mono", size 10.
In RedHat 9, the spacing between lines was just fine and easy on the
eyes. In Fedora, the lines are too squished together. The line spacing
is fine in other applications, for example in Evolution which I'm using
to write this e-mail or in Mozilla.
If I ssh to a remote RedHat 9 box and run gnome-terminal on the Redhat
box and display it on the Fedora box, it looks fine. If I copy the
RedHat 9 gnome-terminal binary (gnome 2.2) to the Fedora box and run it
locally, the spacing is too small, same as with the Fedora-provided 2.4
As a test, I created a new account on my box, so that no legacy settings
remaining in my .gconf, .gnome, etc. directories could screw up the
settings, but the problem remains.
As I don't really want to post binaries to this mailing list, I have
posted an example screenshot on my website. The upper window shows
gnome-terminal running locally on the Fedora box (lines too squished
together) while the lower windows is a gnome-terminal running on a
remote RedHat 9 box and displayed on the local Fedora box (lines ok).
Any idea how to fix this? I googled around, searched both the RedHat and
Fedora mailing lists and also looked at Bugzilla, but found nothing.
