Something changed (although not fatally):
I use Bluetooth speakers quite often.
Back in F22 or so after pairing the device merely turning it on caused
Fedora to connect to it.
Several months ago, now on F23, (not sure when this problem appeared)
that changed and after turning the speaker on, I have to go into
Bluetooth Settings where the device appears as "Disconnected", select it
and activate the "Connection" switch several times and it will
eventually connect and be available for selection in the "Sound
Settings" after which it works fine.
Is there a path back?
The setup is up to date Fedora 23 using Gnome 3.18.1-1.fc23.x86_64

Error: cannot install both kernel-PAE-4.6.4-301.fc24.i686 and kernel-PAE-4.6.4-201.fc23.i686
(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages)
Is it save to use the option '--allowerasing'?
4.6.4-201.fc23.i686+PAE, which would be deleted is the current running kernel.
When will the delete happen? Hopefully later with the "dnf system-upgrade reboot".
Thanks in advance,
I have a D-Link DSL 2750U Router which also has a USB Port that can be used
to connect a USB Printer and make the router work as a Print Server. I
have been trying to print to a HP Laser Jet 1020 Printer using this print
server from Fedora 23/24. The D-Link documentation suggests specifying
http://172.16.100.1:631/printers/HP as the Printer URI. This configuration
works very well over the network while using a Windows system but it does
not print at all from the Fedora machine even after trying various
permutations and combinations. Also, the printer works fine when its
connected locally to the Fedora 24 system.
Has anyone tried a similar thing or can give any suggestions ?
This laser printer is a "special printer" and uses the foo2zjs driver (
http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/ ) to print on Linux and it loads a firmware on
the printer. The D-Linux DSL 2750U is also a Linux device and is running
ippd for this print server to work. The printer is assigned the
/dev/usb/lp/lp0 device on the D-Link router. I could also find the firmware
for this printer on the router box under /etc/hotplug/firmware directory
and I assume it will be getting pushed to the printer when its connected.
This is probably off topic, but I was playing around with the universal
access technologies on Fedora 24, and I'm in a weird state.
I enabled it in Gnome Classic, but there doesn't seem to be a way to
turn it off.
If I logout from Gnome Classic and login using the MATE desktop and go
to the assistive technologies entry in the control panel it shows it as
not enabled, i.e the checkbox is not checked. However, the system is
still saying every character I type. I would have thought that if I
logout and change desktops it should disable the universal access
Anybody have an idea how to turn it off?
Any help is appreciated.
not sure if i'm looking in the right place, but when i'm using
openembedded to build for embedded systems, i can include a
systemd-related package named "run-postinsts" with which i can
effectively simulate firstboot; systemd service that runs on
firstboot, then deletes itself.
i figured i could examine its structure with the corresponding
fedora package, but i see nothing that looks like that. what would be
the analog in fedora if not a separate systemd package? or is that
something fedora folks would just create manually?

I have an external drive I set up yesterday that has the name
"a3cd7e7f-254d-410a-b120-e02524f75a29." How can I change that to
something like "/run/media/bobg/externaldrive?"

If I run "pacmd list-cards" I get very confusing output
where the card with index: 0 has the property
alsa.card = "1", and the card with index: 1
has the property alsa.card = "0"
Since none of the command line utilities
that deal with cards ever document which
card number they mean in the help info,
I'd really like the numbers to match in
order to keep my head from exploding.
Anyone know how to influence either of these
About a dozen times per day, my Bluetooth mouse stops working. I can't
connect manually in Settings > Bluetooth. If I merely turn off the
WiFi radio (Settings > Network > Wi-Fi change from On to Off) and then
click the mouse button, it reconnects and works normally.
With kernels 4.6 and older this ridiculousness was ridiculously
tolerated (in that I continue to use Fedora slightly annoyed rather
than use macOS where this problem does not ever occur with the same
hardware). But with kernel 4.7rc7 this power cycling of WiFi doesn't
work anymore, now I have to reboot.
So the question is, does anyone have any idea how to get more details
debugging information on what appears to be a conflict between WiFi
and Bluetooth? Upstream GNOME bluetooth maintainer says it's a kernel
bug. But there's no meaningful kernel messages at all while this is
Here's the bug I've filed against the kernel, if anyone has
suggestions on improving the report that'd be great. Or heck, maybe a
solution to the problem, that'd be even better.
In ancient times, I remember even Apple had problems negotiating WiFi
and Bluetooth since I guess both are on 2.4GHz and would conflict with
each other. Maybe the work around is to use the proprietary WiFi
driver instead of b43.
I have an html file with it's associated directory containing the images.

I tried to use pdfdoc to convert it to pure pdf and failed (sigabort).
I tried to use wkhtmltopdf and it only produced a blank page.
Any info to help me accomlish converting this to 1 pdf file would be
