A few days ago I successfully got f16 installed
via preupdate from f14.
It came up in gnome i think but it wasn't too good,
even some warnings that I didnt capture.
Couldn't find logout panel for a long time,
seemed to be accessed on top row, on far right off screen.
Why isn't logout-restart in a more obvious place?
So I tried xfce via "yum groupinstall xfce"
That seemed to complete without error
but it seemed that I was still in gnome;
not sure now, but I think gnome persisted even with reboots.
I was/am mostly ignorant of any xfce details, how to start it.
Fumbled my way in the "Add/Remove Software"
and tried to get xfce working, which it did after
I had originally thought that doing just
"yum groupinstall xfce"
would be sufficient to get xfce operating but that does not
seem to be the case.
Is getting xfce to replace gnome, a multiple step process?
1)"yum groupinstall xfce"
2)"Add/Remove Software" and click on all or most all "xfce"?
When I finally got up in xfce,at least partially working,
I could not find the logout-restart panel.
I must have finally hit someething but it kept coming up
with a "failed-logout" message
and left me with a blank window
To try to fix I had to go to a console and
login and use "startx"
then xfce came up again but still couldn't find logout-restart panel.
Upshot: continually coming up with:
Failed to receive a reply from the session manager
The name org.xfce.SessionManager was not provided by any .service
any hints, help
would be appreciated
Is it possible to change the google search settings in some way
so that only get sites changed in the last year are listed,
at least by default.
I know I can do this for one search by clicking on the Advanced icon,
but is there any way of making it the default?
Alternatively, is there any way of listing the search outcomes
by their age, with newer entries first?
Incidentally, is there any mailing list of forum
where one can ask googly questions like this?

As far as I know, the Big 2 are empathy and pidgin. Both use libpurple,
so I guess it depends on where the lockup is occurring.
FWIW, I'm using pidgin with F17 / XFCE and have seen no lockups from it.
Did you had a look at Jitsi?

The NetworkNamager provides a disconnect option. I undertand that it
can be manager through /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d
However, when I disconnect the ppp0 connection, ppp0 is already
down (due to the disconnect) and prevents me to collect information
How can I avoid this problem. I wish to collect information of the
ppp0 just before it is turned off.
Thank for your help.

So, I've decided to jump back onto IM after a few years. My last
Linux-based IM client was AYTTM, but I'm not even sure it's still
packaged with Fedora, although I suppose I could "roll my own" so to
speak. :D I'd prefer to use a pre-packaged IM client.
I've tried Pidgin, but I'm having a problem where if I change my
status to "away" it freezes out the keyboard and won't let me type
anything until I close Pidgin and start it back up.
I currently use LXDE and KDE. Anyone got a suggestion for a good
multi-protocol IM client? I used to use Trillian on the Windows side
of things, but I try to stay away from Windows as much as possible. :D
Just posting this as a data point, since I've found it hard in the
past to find out what wireless hardware is going to work or not
(difficulty in finding out card chipsets, checking support for the
chipset etc.), particularly for PCI cards.
I've replaced my PCI EDI Max EW-7122 (ralink rt2500 chipset) with a
new PCIe wireless card: TP-Link TL-WN881ND (Atheros AR9287 chipset).
Back when I got it the rt2500 was one of the best supported wireless
chipsets, but the card was beginning to show its age. The new card
is a 802.11n-compatible with two aerials, though my AP is still 11g,
so I'm still limited to 54Mbs max. I haven't seen much difference in
raw signal or reported link quality, but the link stability and
through-put under Fedora 16 seem to be much better than previously.
 I think there are a number of factors: where I am now I get poorer
signal, obviously bandwidth demands have gone up over the years, maybe
there's some hardware degradation and finally, though the team
supporting the kernel driver have made a great effort the driver
pre-dated the newer wireless stack and never seems to have been quite
i have claws-mail with smime and gpg
I followed this link to configure
my question is:
is still the best practice to use what suggested here:
KDE has a way to run scripts and thus export environment variables at startup
time. Every application running in this session will get access to these
variables. All you have to do is create a file under the directory ~/.kde/env/
(if it doesn't exist, then create it). I named it gpgagent.sh, the content of
this shell script is quite trivial (don't forget to chmod +x):
or, with f17, something different should be configured?
I'm on Fedora 17, using a German locale. Since today's yum update the German
umlaut 'ü' is not displayed for some sans-serif fonts on some web pages
anymore. Interestingly enough that's purely a display issue and both Firefox
and Chrome are affected.
The yum updated updated two fonts (lohit-kannada-fonts, wqy-zenhei-fonts)
which I manually uninstalled but to no avail.
Interestingly the problem seems related to HTML headlines (<h3>, <h2>, ...)
but not regular text.
I saw the issue on multiple sites
How can I debug that issue? Anyone else with a similar problem?
I'm currently using a Gateway T-6321 Laptop with a web-cam built into
it's lid / screen area. I have Cheese installed.....along with Pidgin. I
am wondering what I need to do or install or enable in order to get my
web-cam to actually work with my Pidgin? Or are they just separate
entities?...I can see myself on the web-cam when I start it up, but
there are no features or "Options" in it's menu that say anything like
"Enable Web-Video Chat"...or anything along those lines.....anyone have
any clues?...I'm stumped!
Why `postfix´ isn't not included in the Fedora 17 Official DVD? And why `sendmail´ comes now as the default mta agent?
