After installation of the app "Rapid Photo Downloader", there is an icon in the Gnome SW display of all icons. I click on the icon "Rapid Photo Downloader". Nothing happens, when I switch in the Gnome SW icons display to "often used icons" all other at least once clicked icons are displayed but not the icon "Rapid Photo Downloader". Looking up in the protocols (app Protokolle (German, might be app protocol in English)), I see an entry of "Rapid Photo Downloader". Where might be the error in "Rapid Photo Downloader" or the "interface" to F23?
i'd like to join the Fedora QA team. Since i'm using Fedora Linux for
all my daily tasks i decided to contribute with the project. Without
further ado, let me introduce myself.
My name is Benjamin Kuhnert and I'm 34 years old. I currently live at
Hanau Germany. After receiving a bachelor degree in computer science at
the Applied University Darmstadt (Hesse, Germany), i've continued
studying to get a specialized master degree in the field of it
-security. Besides my regular student life i'm a research assistant at
a biometrics and internet-security research group, where i happily
using Fedora Linux for developing, testing and statistical analytics
tasks. I 'm also doing some work at the university as a tutor in
development and security related teaching.
I have a 8+ years experience in software engineering (mostly C++, a bit
JavaEE) and my first Linux installation had a Red Hat Linux 5.2 back
then. Due to my research work, breaking things and analyze why
something broke, has become one of my regular tasks, so i think i also
could support the Fedora QA team :-)
Feel free to contact me if you like. My contacts are at my signature.

Hi F23 testers,
anybody has been successful in burning an image (for example the Fedora
TC11 boot iso) to a not empty DVD?
K3B sees that the DVD is not empty and offers a formatting dialog, but
the following formatting process will fail, and I don't see why.
Trying to do the same with brasero succeeds.
Fedora release 23 (Twenty Three)

So we're building 23 Final RC2 now, but we have a couple of outstanding
proposed blocker bugs, and we could use some more data to evaluate
The way to test is really simple:
* Install F23 Final TC11 Workstation or KDE live
* Create a user and log in
* Log out a bunch of times. Just keep logging in and out.
Ideally try this both in a VM and on a real system, if you have a spare
system to test on.
There are two bugs that you might hit:
1. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=12727372. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1273247
With the first one, the system gets stuck at a black screen after
logging out. You won't be able to switch to a TTY or anything, but if
you have another system, you'll find that ssh'ing in still works. So
far it seems this bug *only* affects Workstation (we believe it
involves Wayland, and Workstation has GDM-on-Wayland). It seems easy to
reproduce in a KVM, harder to reproduce on a real system, but some
testers have reproduced it on a real system after several attempts.
We're particularly interested in whether you hit it on a real system,
and if so, how often.
With the second bug, assuming you don't hit the first bug, the cursor
disappears on the login screen, possibly after you click somewhere
(e.g. the password text entry box). Roshi says he sees something like
this on Workstation but not KDE, kparal says he sees it on KDE but not
Workstation, and I can't reproduce it on either. This one is probably
only reproducible in a KVM, but of course let us know if you manage to
trigger it on a real system!
If you could report back to the list what configuration you tested on,
and whether and how often you managed to reproduce either bug, that
would be a great help. For virtual machine testing, please let us know:
* What virtualization system you used (KVM/virt-manager is preferred)
* For a KVM:
** Whether your VM has a virtual 'tablet' input device (one
is often created by default, so check in virt-manager)
** What video adapter and viewer you're using (e.g. qxl/SPICE or
** What OS and release is running on the host system
** The graphics adapter and driver being used on the host system
