After I connected the new scanner to the USB port and ran 'xsane', it
showed 'no devices available'. But if I run 'lsusb' it is getting this
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04a9:12fe Canon, Inc
I downloaded the driver from this link:
And the driver scangearmp2-3.70-1.x86_64.rpm was installed.
But still 'xsane' is not finding it but 'lsusb' is showing it.
Can I do anything here? Thanks in advance.
Writing a new message always starts the format in "Pararaph" mode
instead of "Body Text"
And this leads to the messages being double spaced.
How can I change it so it will default to Body Text every time?
I just received a message from
but the last line in the message is a bluish line saying
"Sent from Yahoo Mail on Android"
I do know someone named [sender] but the from address is not what I have
for that person, though the sender could have gotten a new e-mail
address very recently. Also, the from address being a Google e-mail
address seems to contradict the last line saying the message was sent
from Yahoo Mail. Is this message probably genuine or probably a spoof?
I heard o a you tube video about a file sharing technique
called gfs. I may has misunderstood the letters as I
have trouble with high frequency hearing.
Is there other alternatives out there for cross platform
file sharing other than Samba? (I know about NFS.)
I have a legacy BIOS. I didn't install grub through anaconda, instead I installed it manually (as per https://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?313824 ) to a partition so as to be able to use the Windows boot loader. All went well.
I noticed grub was installed the traditional way (not the new bls) so I can just edit /etc/default/grub and run grub2-mkconfig for any modification I want.
The only issue, so to speak (because I don't know if it's a bug or a setting), is that on new kernel installations or kernel removals, I must manually run grub2-mkconfig to re-generate grub.cfg
The Fedora documentation (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/GRUB_2#Updating_GRUB_2_configuration_on_BI...), which describes the old behaviour, states that 'Grubby in Fedora patches the configuration when a kernel update is performed'. So maybe, with the new bls thing, the kernel scriptlets aren't using this any more.
Anybody knows anything about it? Can I set something so 'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg' is called again automatically on kernel install or removal?
Since I upgraded to fc30, if I do not use the PC for a while
the screen turns to lock (no screensaver is used).
Is this time is long, I may not be able to log in.
The screen remains frozen after I provide the password.
The only way to get access to a graphics mode is to run
kill -9 -1
I though that it may be due to a mounted filesystem.
But it is not the case.
It may be due to Nextcloud, but I do not know how to unmount
by a command like.
However, I cannot really make a correlation.
How can I debug?

I am curious to know what is the utility of gnome-keyring: I stored a
password for msmtp using secret-tool, and going to
.local/share/keyrings/ I can read this password clearly stored in a
file in this directory.....
So, there is absolutely no secret!
Thank you for lights.
PS. Why is secret-tool not working for root?

There was a time when you could go to the terminal and type in "sudo
nautilus" and you'd get the file system to open with root powers so that
you could do things and manipulate files. This seems to have been
removed / stopped / taken away? So how do I gain the ability to work on
files / folders or directories now? Can anyone point me in the right
