I seem to be one of the users who has a somewhat "corrupted" package
The system has been only upgraded so far and was initially installed
If I run "autoremove", then I get the following (long) list where surely
not everything can be removed.
Can someone please prepare a command for me to mark the "relevant"
packages as "explicitly installed"?
Thanks in advance
Recently install Fedora 31 and I've been trying to setup my printer
with not much luck. It's a Brother HL-L8350CDW connected to my WiFi
network. I can print to it without issue from a Mac and an Ubuntu
machine on my network but can't get it working under Fedora.
I can set up the printer and it all appears to work but whenever I
print it appears to print the document is never print and no error is
generated. The documents just go into black hole.
I've followed all the instructions from Brother to install the driver:
and various FAQs:
but I'm unable to print. I know it's possible as my Ubuntu machine can
print so I'm wondering if there something different going on here
related to Fedora. Has anyone get any ideas on how to debug this?
on my Fedora 31 system wifi-radar doesn't work but gives
File "/usr/sbin/wifi-radar", line 179
except OSError, exception:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Why this? Python problem?

I made an error in sending my reply directly to Robert. Here is his response to what I've said.
I then sent him an off-list reply with a screen shot to indicate where the "negative" selection resides.
The key to getting good answers is to ask good questions.
I have recently begun to use again gnome session and I have reinstalled
I see that nautilus depends on tracker and so the reinstall put in tracker
and its things
And this morning in my F28 system with SSD disk (I don't imagine on a
normal sata based environment) I had to kill tracker-extract and
tacker-miner processes because they hogged my cpu for several minutes..
Searching with google I found different info about disabling (or at least
calm down) tracker, but they all seem not updated, in the sense that
several commands/services are not present in my f28 environment.
Any pointer about configuring and/or disabling it?
Thanks in advance,

It was working fine, and then a week ago went bad. I thought it was
because I did an update and did not restart things. I rebooted over the
weekend, and it is still doing this.
I linart, but grey gives the same results.

When logged in as cn.user, characters displayed in terminals, in window
titles, in the settings tools, and other places are displayed with
obviously worse quality. They look like they're made of small blocks.
Both accounts have the same region and language settings. In the
"Tweaks" tool, both accounts have the same "Appearance" and "Fonts"
settings. What is causing the difference? What else should I check?
I'm using F31 that is up to date.
I have some accounts setup with loginctl set to linger and they have some
services that used to start up automatically after a reboot.
But recently they only start after I ssh into the user account.
"loginctl user-status <account>" shows linger: yes.
What is required for the user services to automatically start?
Has a default changed recently that might explain why this has stopped working?
Has anyone seen a message like the following, which I started getting
when I upgraded from F30 to F31. It comes from dolphin when attempting
to view some (but not all) files in my Trash folder and also from
ksensors . The problem has been reported on some other forums, e.g.
but there doesn't seem to be any clear analysis or a solution.
Any ideas? If I file a bug, where should it go?

I use fedora with the kds plasma desktop and have been for a very long
time. Powering up today and logging in appeared to hangup while
bringing up the desktop and I noticed the plasmashell process was
consuming 100% of the cpu. I tried restarting a few times and then gave
up an left the machine running while I did an errand. When I returned,
it looked like the plasma desktop loaded because I noticed the screen
lock had kicked in and when I unlocked the screen there was a
background. Then I noticed the dual screen was a duplicate (not
extended with separate backgrounds) and the kpanel was missing. So I do
not have the network manager connecting to the router as well as no
Is this my own problem or has something happened to the plasma desktop
launcher? Is there a way I can reset the plasma desktop or start it
manually (i.e. from a run level 3)?
Thanks for any suggestions,
