After upgrading to F27, I noticed that fonts looked "off". I made a
screenshot of Thunderbird and gnome-terminal displaying roughly
identical contents on Fedora 25, 26, and 27. The older two releases are
identical, but F27's fonts (both fixed-width and variable-width) appear
to be the same width as they were previously, but taller. Characters
like monospace 'o' used to be round and are now oblong. Everything
seems slightly heavier as a result of the additional pixels. Does
anyone know if this change was intentional? Personally, I think it's
worse than before.
Since March 08, I've received 11 messages from this list that appear empty, including 2 so far today. I have received a few (less) not empty, none today and 3 yesterday. What's causing this problem, and how do I fix it? My e-mail client is Thunderbird 52.5.2.
I will occasionally check the Fedora Hyperkitty for replies.
I'm having to replace my 5-year old desktop printer. Like any good project, I start with requirements!
1. desktop printer.
2. the manufacturer provides real support for the printer running on Fedora as well as windows-7.
3. has printing, scanning, and copying.
4. color and black-and-white, colors are correct when printing from Fedora as well as when from windows-7.
5. at least 600 dpi.
6. USB cable connection (not ethernet or wi-fi) between printer and workstation's tower.
7. either laser or LED, not ink-jet (I'm in a very low-humidity climate).
I am especially concerned with requirement #1, and that's why I'm asking this list. What fulfils all the above requirements?
Support needs to be more than simply providing a driver for me to download. The at least 600 DPI has to be real, not merely "effective", "simulated", etc. My now dead printer, a Xerox Workcentre 6015, claimed either 1200x1200 or 1200x2400 resolution, but I only got 600 real dots per inch, both in windows-7 and in Fedora. When printing from Fedora, colors were not even close, but were ok when printing from windows-7.
Which is better overall: laser or LED?
Thank-you for your advice.
I just did an update from F25 to F26 via dnf. After it boots, I can no
longer start gnome terminal (nothing shows). If I ssh into the machine and
try it remotely, I see the following:
(process:3586): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
Error constructing proxy for
org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling
StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached
So it looks like there is a locale issue in my update. Does anyone know
how to fix this?
I've updated my OS a few times now and it would appear that I am still
on Xorg of Fedora 27 workstation;
0 digimer@pulsar:~$ loginctl
SESSION UID USER SEAT TTY
c2 42 gdm seat0 /dev/tty1
3 1000 digimer seat0 /dev/tty2
2 sessions listed.
0 digimer@pulsar:~$ loginctl show-session 3 -p Type
That link doesn't say how to switch to Wayland, though. When I click
on the gear icon at the login screen, I only have "Gnome" and "Gnome
Classic" as options.
Any hint on how to enable Wayland?

I installed many times NetBeans in a linux environment, without problems ...
But now I have problems to do it , after then I installed fedora 27.
When I try the installation, the output that I get is :
[root@localhost Downloads]#* ./netbeans-8.2-linux.sh
Configuring the installer...
Searching for JVM on the system...
Extracting installation data...
*Running the installer wizard...*
*Can`t initialize UIRunning in headless mode*
*Exception: java.awt.HeadlessException thrown from the
UncaughtExceptionHandler in thread "main"*
This is a problem about the java environment ?
it can be also a problem with the graphical environment of fedora ... (?)
I worked around many time without a result...
Can I have some help please ?
When I try to sign in to a (verizon) yahoo e-mail account via Thunderbird, it takes several seconds to get a response, then I often get this error message:
The current operation on 'Inbox' did not succeed. The mail server for account
[my e-mail account] responded: [CLIENTBUG] SELECT Command is not valid in this
I then have to exit Thunderbird, and sign in again to all the accounts I want to connect to. I usually have to do this 2-4 times before it finally downloads the folder structure and message headers successfully (though v-e-r-y slowly). I experience this problem randomly but frequently (almost daily) with all 6 of my (verizon) yahoo accounts. My incoming server is set to "imap.mail.yahoo.com:993"; my outgoing server is set to "smtp.mail.yahoo.com:465"; connection security is set to "SSL/TLS".
Yahoo e-mail does not work properly in my browser, so that's not a good work-around. I've checked both yahoo and Thunderbird on-line help; I get nothing really helpful, though I notice the problem is not unique to me.
What's the real cause of this problem, and what do I fix it?
Thank-you for your help.
I have not seen this before, so I do not know what might be causing this.
All tasks are quiescent, except that I am watching a youtube video.
So I stopped the YT video and waited to see if the activity of Caja
would abate. NOP!!! It stays at 92 to 98 %
I recently replaced my graphics card (with NVIDIA GT 710).
A newer nvidia module was installed
kmod-nvidia-340xx-4.15.7-200 -> kmod-nvidia-390.42-1
I also enabled VDPAU which was incorrectly installed until now.
I now have a failure of 'gthumb':
$ gthumb -v
(gthumb:7097): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'gthumb' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length erro'.
(Details: serial 159 error_code 16 request_code 152 (DRI2) minor_code 1)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

I see that the gthumb package was updated in 2017, dnf.log says:
Aug 19 18:09:33 DEBUG ---> Package gthumb.x86_64 1:3.4.3-1.fc24 will be upgraded
Aug 19 18:09:33 DEBUG ---> Package gthumb.x86_64 1:3.4.5-1.fc26 will be an upgrade
The update was part of a f24->f26 upgrade. There is no later version of gthumb but I do see
version 3.6.0 in f27.
I also see that this gthumb version is one year old:
$ ls -l /usr/bin/gthumb
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 988384 Apr 20 2017 /usr/bin/gthumb
The gthumb package depends on the libvdpau package so I suspect some incompatibility.
Reinstalling both packages does not improve the situation.
Is gthumb still maintained? https://github.com/GNOME/gthumb suggests perusing
https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/gthumb which is not present.
Still, too many packages are involved, not the least X/nvidia ones.
Is anyone else seeing this problem? I do not want to log a bug if this is the result
of my system long update history, but I do want to resolve this.
I have another f26 machine that has no problems but does not use vdpau (or nvidia card).
