Try right click on the file you want to open with geany in nautilus.
Go to properties then open with tab. Add your preferred app as the default.
Is there a simple way of changing the font used by lpr
to print out a text file,
after say "lpr foo.txt" on a Fedora-18 CUPS printer?
The font in my case is much too small for my eyesight.
Any suggestions or advice gratefully received.

I am working with a pair of spanking new HP ProLiant ML110 G& servers.
Both have the RAID Hot Swap SATA Arrays and I have tried Installation
with the drive arrayed as 1 Logical Drive and as four separated drives
with the same result in both configurations. I have also used the Full
Installation and the NetInstall downloads.
In all configurations a seemingly normal install results into booting
into grub rescue!
I grub rescue I get the following results.
(hd0) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1) (fd0) (fd1)
I am not real sure what this is telling me and am totaly confused by the
two segments labeled msdosX.
Where do I go from here?
I think my Fedora 18 uses nautilus for file management, but it may be
nemo, I've never taken any notice.
I'm wondering if I can set a default somewhere so that when opening ruby
.rb and .erb rails files in my Rails development directory it will
default to using Geany instead of GEdit.
Is there somewhere to set these default please
I have looked in .config/geany /nautilus /nemo and .local with no luck.
Thanks in advance
The quick history of this laptop:
Its a Dell Inspiron 1100 (Celeron/Pentium 4 i686 CPU, Intel GPU:
> 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 03)
Booted from the F17 LiveCD (Gnome, I think). Everything worked.
Used the install to Disk option to install F17 to disk.
Ran yum update to update the F17 install. Added a number of 3rd party
Each of these installed a GPG key and works fine.
Used FEDUP to upgrade to F18. I followed the directions on the
fedoraproject wiki, and everything seemed to go smoothly. F18 boots and
runs no problem (well, almost no problem). This laptop seems to have
problems suspending and hibernating correctly, or more correctly,
resuming from them. Lately, it has had problem completing the suspend
or hybernation. But, that's another problem.
One of the things I wanted to try was tuxonice. I found the repo at:
and tried to use it. I get GPG key errors. here is the bulk of the

When I try and install something from the repository, I get an error

I currently have the following keys installed:
Why can't I install any more?
Kevin J. Cummings
Registered Linux User #1232 (http://www.linuxcounter.net/)
Anytime I'm in a VOIP conversation, the user can hear themselves as
well as me. It's not normal audio feedback as I can put my headset on
and play music with the speakers completely off and they will hear the
music. So it sounds like everything that's coming through the stereo
mix is being fed back to the remote user.
This is also happening on SIP calls to regular phone numbers and is
annoying to the remote users.
Any way to correct this?

I've just installed Fedora 17 as a fresh install and setup Raid 10, its
all working, and does boot ok.
However when installing grub on each of the 4 drives one of them doesn't
like it, or something isn't right and I am not sure what the issue is as
the 3 drives don't complain.
I have a 500mb raid partition on each of the 4 drives, and then have
created a raid 1 device that is mapped to /boot mount point.
the rest of the space is also assigned a fixed size and mapped to a raid
partition, I have then created a raid device which is mapped to a LVM,
and then created the usually group, and the lv_root, lv_swap, lv_home
groups within it.
I have then done grub2-install /dev/sda, this returned "Installation
finished. No error reported" as did /dev/sdb and /dev/sdd.
When I did grub2-install /dev/sdc this came back with a warning and a
error of the following, then quits back to the prompt, it boots ok is
this anything for me to worry about ?.
/usr/sbin/grub2-bios-setup: warning: this GPT partition label contains
no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won't be possible.
/usr/sbin/grub2-bios-setup: error: embedding is not possible, but this
is required for RAID and LVM install.
This is my first stab at using the auto mount for NFS and its been a very
long time since I've played with NFS.
I have two systems running Fedora, the NFS server which is running Fedora
16, and the client which is running Fedora 19 (beta), both are X86_64
The server, it's running RAID-1 (for all partitions including the boot
partition, the client has a boot disk but is auto mounting the home
directories from the server. The server is also serving window's CIFS
shares. (also the home directory to several Windows 7 systems)
My /etc/auto.misc entry on the client reads:
home -rw,auto,suid,sync server:/home
The exports entry looks like:
Network connectivity is 100Mb/s FDX ethernet (through a Cisco 2948 switch)
What I am seeing is basic file access is good but when I run a browser
(Firefox) on the client I can see a large amount of disk I/O on the server
(looking at the HD LED indicator) and performance is sluggish. I suspect
its the browser cache files and I could probably pick better options for
performance, I think for starters I probably want async instead of sync.
The other question, is it possible to leave just the browser cache files
locally? I know I can leave the users' home directories local and then
mount the NFS directory someplace within the home directory, but that's
ugly and its too easy to leave files in the local home directory which
defeats the purpose of having a dedicated fileserver.
Ok... (Before anyone tells me I need to) I will be filing a bugzilla
report on this later today but someone did a bad thing in ClamAV.
If you install the latest packages from the update repositories, they
url chunks unable to create the clamupdate user and group. Problem
appears to be in the clamav-update package.
During the yum install of the clamav packages...
groupadd [options] GROUP
-f, --force exit successfully if the group already exists,
and cancel -g if the GID is already used
-g, --gid GID use GID for the new group
-h, --help display this help message and exit
-K, --key KEY=VALUE override /etc/login.defs defaults
-o, --non-unique allow to create groups with duplicate
-p, --password PASSWORD use this encrypted password for the new group
-r, --system create a system account
-R, --root CHROOT_DIR directory to chroot into
useradd: group 'clamupdate' does not exist
warning: user clamupdate does not exist - using root
warning: group clamupdate does not exist - using root
Installing: clamav-filesystem ################### [1522/2490]
Installing: clamav-update ################### [1523/2490]/usr/bin/chown: invalid group: ‘root:clamupdate’
No such file or directory
warning: %post(clamav-update-0.97.8-1.fc18.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
I've had to add that user and group by hand on some of my real systems
but that's not possible in building the NST (Network Security Toolkit)
<http://www.networksecuritytoolkit.org/nst/index.html> respins of F18
since those are building bootable iso images.
Obviously, it only affects fresh installs where someone installs ClamAV
on a new system (or, at least, one that hasn't had it on there before).
If the UID and GID already exist on the system, there's not a problem.
