I've installed F25 on a system with an old Nvidia Quadro NVS 110 GPU.
The RPMFusion driver didn't work so I installed the proprietary using
this guide: https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2015/fedora-nvidia-guide/
Briefly summarized, it uses a patched version of the 304.xx driver,
blacklists Nouveau, and registers the kernel modules with DKMS for easy
It works great except for one hitch: I can only run Plasma in 2D. If
compositor with OpenGL is enabled, everything slows to full stop.
Disabling compositor with Shift+Alt+F12 brings the desktop back to life.
I'm at a loss about how to troubleshoot this. If anyone has experience
with this issue I would love to hear your suggestions.

I normally have two session open in KDE but don't have that issue. I do
have a fixed Xorg.conf file and that may make the difference.
F23 and F24
After a fresh install of Fedora 25, not formatting my home partition, I find that neither Dolphin nor Konqueror have an open with menu item. Why is that and how can I get that functionality back?
I'm running Fedora 24 KDE spin on a thinkpad X1 carbon 4th gen laptop. I
have 2 external monitors and most often they work well, I plug one into
the hdmi port and a second via a vga adapter into the laptop's mini
More and more often I'm having issues when I plug in the external
monitors. The menu & taskbar/panel jumps around asI plug in the
monitors. I want this to stay on the laptop. Even though the display
settings shows the laptop as the primary screen
Sometimes one of the external monitors will show up with no background,
I can move the mouse to it and I can drag windows to it but I cannot
right click on the background and get a menu.
I've even tried manually controlling the monitors via xrandr, the last
time I had issues my panel moved to a secondary monitor, xrandr reported
that the laptop was indeed still set as the primary, running "xrandr
--output eDP-1 --primary" had no effect. I generally have to reboot 5 or
6 times to get the external monitors to behave. Sometimes I actually
have to remove my .config directory before it will work.
Can anyone help me debug this?
Thanks in advance

Removing qt5-qtdeclarative-doc allows the upgrade process to complete without

I am currently in Fedora 25, KDE (live) and Anaconda crashes when I open
it. I tried to report a bug but by default it has set my default language
to Hindi (because I'm from India). Now I can speak Hindi fluently and can
read it fine, but reporting a bug in Hindi, and not being able to change it
is quite frustrating.
Now I don't have a problem with Hindi whatsoever, but wouldn't it be better
to have the default language set to English anyway, and then give the user
the option to change it, if they want to?
I've been having problems with my Bluetooth mouse for a long time now.
My PC has a dongle and BT randomly disconnects when I reboot or even
return from hibernation or suspend. I've put "hciconfig hci0 up" in an
rc.local script to try to force it but even that only works some of the
However aside from all that, I've now noticed that it frequently
disconnects even if I log out of Plasma and back in again. This means I
have to keep an extra mouse around just to activate it.
This is ridiculous. Is anyone else seeing a similar problem?
The first Kannolo ISOs ever are now available for download.
Kannolo is an installable graphical Fedora Remix without GTK+, based on the
