At one point Fedora had something (keyring?) that would allow me to
unlock my SSH private keys and it would keep the unlocked key available
so I could ssh without having to unlock my key every time. I typically
run a simple "terminal" window and then "ssh <hostname>" since my key is
not retained unlocked I'm prompted for a password.
Fast forward to today, the system had been reinstalled (new hardware,
new disks, etc) and I no longer have that ability. I'm currently runn
Fedora 28 and the desktop is "Gnome", I'm sure it is just a matter of
installing/configuring/running the correct application.... but which one?
I just install F28/i686/MATE desktop, and it's login screen has not
menu for language selection. And instead of lightdm-gtk there is slick
Know anyone, when it is possible to configure slick for language
selection? Or I should rather switch back to lightdm-gtk?
I hope the Fedora will have a better init and no binary logs
With the sudo dnf upgrade I have just done I received the following
messages, which I'm not sure what to do about.

I have a question about live ISO image creation. What I would like to achieve is to install exfat-utils and fuse-exfat while I am in live environment and then to create a new ISO image file which would be the same as the one I booted but with addition of those two packages.
Is that possible?

(inviato dal mio Linux Fedora 28 Workstation)
I am running F27. I updated my distribution on Friday evening and
Dolphin has now a huge status bar which is very annoying (see attached
The version of dolphin is 17.12.2.
as Adobe Reader cannot be fully replaced by evince or other application, I
note that if I start Acroread and I use the File/open menu, it doesn't
work. Using acroread name_of_file in a terminal it works. Any idea? sorry
for the off-topic
Linux Fedora 28 Workstation
shortly after F28 was released I upgraded one of my systems to F28
using fedup. Since that day, despite all the updates I have installed,
I still cannot run the MATE desktop on that system. Before the upgrade,
when the system ran F27, I ran MATE without any problems. Now as soon
as I login I get a screen that is completely messed up :-(. However, if
instead of the MATE desktop I select the Gnome Classic desktop, it
appears just fine and I can use it. This problem with F28 and MATE does
not affect just this one system, I upgraded a second system and created
to F28 VMs, one under VirtualBox and one under VMware. Of these 4 F28
systems, the only one that is usable with the MATE desktop is the VM
Does anyone have any idea what might be causing the problem? As I said
this worked fine under F27.
I am reluctant to upgrade my 2 primary systems until this issue is resolved.

This has to be a Very Dumb Question, but what is the difference
between a "display manager" and a "desktop manager"?
I'm trying to run MATE on F28, and succeeding to the extent that
I do have a more or less MATE-like GUI, but only by grace of still having
an F26 rescue kernel. (Two PCs without that kernel are unable to give any
GUI at all. All I can do is keep a console open and run dnf upgrade once
or twice a day, using an F28 rescue kernel, with reboots whenever any
kernel is mentioned.) And this GUI does not afford me the panel applets I
In quest of better, I've been experimenting with various apps
called *dm. Most do better than lightdm (which I started with), but not
yet a whole lot better.
Some will say I oughtn't to run Fedora at all, but at this point
my accumulated ignorance has reached a level where any other distro would
tie me up in even more knots.
