On myself I've had best experience with a Canon product on both RH
derived and "debioid" Linux systems for meantime about one and a half year:
It was a pretty good offer of a computer shop in my country (Austria)
having me had purchase a piece of demonstration ware still under
guarantee, an I-sensys LBP7100Cn for 120 $ only. Wonderful machine!
The most over reason of that low price might have been that printer was
one of the last Canon models unconditionally basing on Canon's
proprietary UFRII printer language and thus requiring a special driver,
whereas later Canon products allow to work on HP or PS printing data ,
too. However, the excellent Linux drivers (consisting of a
"cndvcups-common" and a "cndrvcups-ufr2lt" each) bundled as .deb and
.rpm packages together are shipped on CD with the printer, and you can
download newer versions from Canon servers in USA, UK and Australia.
I've tried them out with a lot of Debian and RH based distros and
therein never seen any serious difficulties but sometimes on Debian
rather than Ubuntu having had to add one to three dependencies manually.
(On RH derived distros, Yum and Dnf will solve it automatically!) I
always work on KDE Plasma whereon the printer recognition now seems to
May be somewhere you can find one for you that's similarly cheap,

My video card has worked fine with recent builds of the f23 nvidia304xx
driver from rpmfusion, but an update two days ago left me with black
screens (two - VGA and HDMI). I have a thread on the rpmfusion list,
but here may now be more appropriate.
I have removed the nvidia packages, and nouveau gives me the full plasma
window with taskbar etc, but after a few seconds that is replaced by
featureless black screens with a mouse arrow that moves - from one
screen to the other - but does nothing else.
Ctrl/Alt/F2 lets me view Xorg.0.log - on both screens - and all looks
harmless until, about 80 seconds after the last NOUVEAU message, about
HDMI max frequency, I get
AIGLX: Suspending AIGLX clients for VT switch
NOUVEAU(0): NVLeaveVT is called
It now looks as if this is just recording the switch to tty2
Switching between Ctrl/Alt/F2 and Ctrl/Alt/F1 adds more instances of it
but I still don't get a working GUI
Is there a desktop calendar widget that can show KOrganizer events? Or
at least show events from an iCalendar file?
There's one 'Event Calendar' widget which shows events from Google
Calendar. What I'm looking for is something similar, but one that can
display locally stored events.
I found a forum post During Fedora 22 time:
For those of you who want a quick sneak-peak at plasma-5.8.0, builds are
avilable in copr,
Feedback is welcome and encouraged.
I've only done one quick upgrade test (on f24 box), and restarted my
session. Nothing exploded. :)
Doing official updates may have to wait a bit, as Fedora 25 is currently in
I already had some issues with multiscreen in 5.7, but some things seem
to get better with 5.8 - and also some things getting worse.
Previous bug report:
Hardware: nVidia 1060 with nvidia drivers.
Screens: 3 x 24" 1920x1080 screens.
The main screen (DVI-D) seems to work ok as Folder mode and saves the
settings. The screens on either side of that (DP-1 & DP-5) will not keep
their setting and keep reverting to 'factory default' folder view with
icon rows / wallpapers on logging on.
Hardware: Dell Latitude with intel graphics
Screens: 2 x DVI screens via docking station.
On logging in with a new user account (an empty $HOME), I get the
'factory default' view on both screens. No panel is displayed. If you
right click the desktop, then Add Panel, nothing displays. doing
"killall plasmashell && plasmashell &" via krunner (Alt + F2), then upon
loading plasmashell, I get the normal panel plus an extra panel for
every "Add Panel" selected.

Like I have said earlier sometimes my system wakes up from suspend or screen
off (I can't say for sure) it never reaches screen locker. I see black screen
and mouse pointer. In some places mouse pointer changes to input cursor. Other
than that my only recourse is to restart system.
I can't keep losing my data because Fedora or KDE fails to work.
My questions is I am not even sure which log file should I be looking into to
track possible problem if I am to continue using Fedora.
I am on a fully upgraded F24.
I use Save Session with "Restore manually saved session" to try for a
known desktop configuration on login. I say "try" because in various
ways it doesn't completely work, as discussed in other threads. To
attempt to get round some of the issues I also have a number of
programs in Autostart, but it's never been clear to me what relation if
any there is between these two things.
Case in point: if I have program Foo in Autostart, but also save a
session with Foo running, is the desktop after a new login expected to
show two Foo instances or one (or none because of a conflict). Or is
this simply not defined? Or does it depend on Foo itself?
