I think I can also now attribute instant lock-up of Thunderbird to
this approach. I browsed to the .gvfs directory, and poof, Thunderbird
locked, taking my email composition down with it. It's almost like
it's waiting for an event to occur that will never happen, like access
to the device.
Wonder if there is a way to troubleshoot it while it's locked, or
perhaps signal it so it stops searching so I don't lose my email? :-)
This is the second time it's happened, out of probably five or six
times in total that I've tried.

Yes, it didn't seem intuitive to me, either. Like Tim said in his
follow-up, it didn't make sense for Web bookmarks to be used for
files, although I thought it was a euphemism for "soft link".
Other suggestions on how best to do this would be greatly appreciated.
Just some clarification and double checking.
I want to use a Canadian government site with Firefox on Fedora 13. I
get the warning message that I need Sun JVM 1.6.0_3 or greater. There
is nothing in the repositories that I can see resembling Sun JVM.
Apparently I can download and install from Sun, but I get messages that
no new updates are being made available.
Before frustration overtakes me and I start downloading unknown and
unneeded stuff. What exactly do I want and where should I get it?
(Irony => the site isn't working in WindowsXP Explorer either)
Fedora 13, Gnome 2.30.2
Evo.2.20.2, Emacs 23.2.1
I'm installing Fedora-13 on a Dell E6410 laptop. This has an NVidia Quadro NVS
3100M graphics card. The install goes fine .
When I boot with the "nomodeset" kernel boot parameter I only get 800x600
If I leave out the "nomodeset" parameter I get a blank screen.
Does anybody have the magic incantations to get this graphics card recognised
with reasonable resolution.
I've tried with the live CD and get a blank screen also.
Just installed Fedora 13. Upgraded from 12..
My movie player will not work.
Error message below..
The playback of this movie requires a Advanced Streaming Format (ASF)
demuxer plugin which is not installed.
Neither yum or the package manager could find it.
I googled and got a 1000 hits.. After checking I am not sure who/what
Is there a trusted Fedora site where I can get this codec??
I have few questions about how to accomplish some things on the
desktop, and hoped someone could help.
- How can I change the highlighting of text using the mouse in a
Terminal to automatically copy without having to right-click then
Copy, and paste automatically by clicking the right-mouse button,
similar to how putty works?
- How can I attach a file to an email in Thunderbird that is on a
samba share? I've mounted the share in the file browser, then dragged
it over to the email, but Thunderbird responds with a permission
denied type of error, like the file either isn't accessible in
Thunderbird, or is only shared from within the File Browser. I've also
tried going through Thunderbird, but there doesn't appear to be a way
to connect to a network share, only the local disk.
- How can I create the ability for a normal user from within GNOME to
either be prompted once for the root password for administrative
tasks, or be able to start X11 as a normal user, yet have the ability
to perform root administrative functions like mount devices or create
new printer shares?
My laptop has ceased hibernating.
When I click on f=>Leave=>Hibernate
the sleep-moon starts flashing
and the small hyphen-like symbol on the top left comes on as usual,
but as far as I can see nothing is written to disk.
At this point it becomes impossible to communicate with the machine.
Ctrl-Alt-F2 does bring on a text window,
with a login: request,
but if I enter my username and press Return
I am not asked for a password.
Whatever I type appears on the screen,
but with no effect.
I tried stopping the NetworkManager and openvpn services
which seemed to me the most likely causes of the problem,
but that had no effect.
I wonder if anyone has had the same problem?
And if so, whether there is a solution?
I'm running the current kernel,
but I tried the last 2 kernels without effect.

Last week I was suddenly faced with the loss of all printers in my
settings. This is on a netbook that I carry around and therefore have
5-6 printers set up for use.
What I have noticed since then are the following features figured out
with lots of trial and error, finally some success.
1. Plug-n-play automatic detection and setup of printers no longer
happens. Other USB devices get found as usual.
2. trying to use the menu-based Printer configuration ends with it
finding the printer, then telling packagekit to look for drivers, after
which it says that the drivers are installed, and it quits with an error.
3. Using the menu-based HPLIP, it cannot find any printers connected to
a USB interface, another show-stopper.
4. Using 'hp-setup' on the command line by root will allow for USB-USB
printers to be set up. This will not work for USB-parallel connections,
since this still cannot find any devices connected to the USB interface.
5. Using 'system-config-printer' on the command line by root will allow
for setting up a USB-parallel connections printer.
I've tried going back a couple of kernels to see if that made a
difference, but it didn't.
This is very annoying, and I wondering if anyone has any explanation for it.
Perhaps you can set the putty to use Chinese font,
I used to use putty with Chinese BBS, should be all right.
Or you may want to try pietty:
