Past time to set up a F26 system with Xfce. Should have gotten off F24
months ago, but finally bought a new drive for the install...
Anyway, all I see is a live image for F26 Xfce. Does the Netinstall
give you the options for which desktop? Or doing an install to a clean
drive work off the live ISO?
I want complete control over how the partitions are set up.
I have a question about the system startup files for bash.
The problem I had was that I set up an alias in ~/.bashrc, let's say
alias ls="ls -lh"
but it didn't work as "alias ls" reported
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
What happens is that at the end ~/.bashrc sources /etc/bashrc which sources
/etc/profile.d/*.sh that redefine "ll".
This happens on F24, F25, F26 and CentOS....
Easy to correct, but the question is: is that right? None of the examples I
found on line does that and /etc/profile.d/*.sh are already sourced by
/etc/profile (which is the first startup file read on login). Is this a quirk of
RedHat or an error that still remains in the files or what?
I have to scan a document into my computer from a cannon mfc620
multifunction printer. It is wifi connected, and I have also a USB
connection. Xsane says no device connected and exits.
Any help? googling didn't give me anything useful.
Is there a way to tell smplayer to save "the best formats of audio and
video" of a download into mp4.
More often than not, it merges the audio file and video file into mkv;
youtube-dl -ci <the youtube url> ....
Requested formats are incompatible for merge and will be merged into mkv.
This has just started happening: I'll play a youtube
video in google-chrome and get no audio.
I'll start poking around and eventually run
As soon as the sound control panel pops up,
audio will start playing in youtube.
So which component here is failing to activate
something to make audio work?
Anyone else seeing this?
I've got an nvidia card and the audio should
be coming from the HDMI output.
It is almost like it forgets that the audio is
set to HDMI out and suddenly remembers
that when I start the control panel.
I have a ThinkPad Yoga 11e, which is a convertible notebook/tablet device.
Prior to a recent kernel update, it worked just fine as a plain laptop, and
there was no support for the tablet fcuntionality.
After upgrading to 4.13.5-200, the laptop is no longer usable.
- There appears to be support for setting the screen orientation based on
the accelerometer. Unfortunately, the orientation is 90° out of sync.
- The device is stuck in "tablet" mode, which means that the keyboard and
mouse are disabled. The touch screen works and I can get an on-screen
keyboard, but I'd like to use the actual keyboard.
It looks like the screen orientation issue can be solved by a simple patch
to the udev hwdb . However, I'm less certain why the device thinks it's
in tablet mode. In the kernel logs, I see:
[ 8.875546] thinkpad_acpi: Tablet mode switch found (type: MHKG),
currently in laptop mode
...which is exactly what I saw in previous kernels (and in any case would
not seem to be the source of getting stuck in tablet mode).
While it would be super awesome to have the laptop/tablet conversion
working, I would prefer "just act like a laptop" over "just act like a
tablet". Where should I be looking for clues?

Note that in older Samba servers, it may help add also the sec=ntlm
option with 1.0 version, this way:
Note this is completly insecure, but some servers need it. I found it
useful when connecting to an old SCO Unix OSE 5.0 with (its) oooold
SAMBA (from Skunkware).
Hi, after a recent package manager based update,
FC25 kernel update that installed 4.13.5-100.fc25.x86_64
*Cant mount /boot*
System:ELITEGROUP COMPUTER SYSTEM CO.,LTD. P965T-A/P965T-A, BIOS 6.00 PG 08/30/2007
4 X Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHZ
Can boot previous kernel :
/dev/mapper/fedora00-root on / type ext4 (rw,relatime,seclabel,data=ordered)
dev/mapper/fedora00-root / ext4 defaults 1 1
The following command was used to access Seagate "Goflex Home" home NAS.
mount -t cifs '//192.168.1.66/External Storage' /mnt/external -o username=xx,password=yyy,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,domain=Seagategroup
The error is 112 Host is down
Access through dolphin or nautilus works but that is not equivalent to a mount. The NAS is seen by windows with no problem. The command works in CENTOS6. Is there something new that allows mounting file systems for full use as data files?
After upgrading to f26, I could no longer print. Some key file (ppi file?) was gone. After wrestling quite a while with this, I found a print driver (an rpm) for my Xerox WorkCentre 6015 on the Xerox web site, downloaded it, installed it, and got it working with help from cups. That driver is older than my workstation and my printer, each of which is more than 4.5 years old.
The driver I got being so old together with the key file disappearing has me wondering. What is the current "best practice" for driving, controlling, etc. this printer in f26?
