I'm been using a Logitech M705 wireless mouse with my Fedora laptop for
a long time. Recently it seems to have developed an unwanted "double-
click" behavior when the left button is depressed. This is particularly
objectionable when I'm trying to select a single e-mail in Evolution,
or after selecting it, to delete it. If either action senses a double-
click, that e-mail will pop up in its own window, or it and the next
message will be deleted.
Is this something that I can tune out with Preferences > Hardware >
Mouse in the MATE desktop? Or is there some other control?

When there's a url -- http://foo.bar.com for example -- typed in the
terminal and I clink the RMB with the sprite on the text, I am offered
the option: "open link". So far, so good. The default browser is not
executed. (Firefox rather than Chrome, FWIW)
Question: where is the browser to be executed at this point configured?
Hi! I have a really weird situation with my wifi device on an old
Thinkpad t420 : i have no network device but the device seem fine in
lspci and the iwlwifi driver is loaded.
There is not hardware problem as i tried a knoppix and it works without
One small quirk is that the ssd+os is transplanted from other station to
this laptop, but i would have expected for the wireless device to be at
Any idea what is going on? Why i do not have it in ip addr output?

I am wondering why selinux changes its policy. I did note update or
upgrade my system for a long time now, but selinux policy has changed!
I used to use dictd server on my computer and it worked fine up today: I
can't start the server for selinux block it (If I setenforce 0, I can
start the dictd server). Why? I don't know.
And, as usual, journalctl is unable to give me any clue:
using journalctl -u dictd answers:
mars 05 11:57:53 dipankar systemd: Starting Dictd Dictionary Server
mars 05 11:57:53 dipankar systemd: Started Dictd Dictionary Server
mars 05 11:57:53 dipankar systemd: dictd.service: Main process
exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
mars 05 11:57:53 dipankar systemd: dictd.service: Failed with result
Thank you sir! "Failed with result 'exit-code'" What can I do with this.
dictd.log file is also useless:

OK! What can I do with this?
The only way I found is to stop selinux!
Who can help?

This morning I installed a lot of updates on my machine
at work which is setup with "network", NOT NetworkManager.
I rebooted, and had no network. DHCP not giving me an IP,
ypbind not talking, etc.
After much flailing around, I found the socket
enabled (I have no idea if it has always been enabled),
so I disabled it, rebooted again, and all networking
was once again functioning perfectly.
Just thought someone else might run into this and could
use my solution.
I just bought myself a brand new 27" monitor, that came with a standard
VGA cable and no HDMI cable. Apparently VGA is still considered the
standard by Philips. I would like this to be my new primary display.
I also have a somewhat older Samsung 24" monitor, that is connected via
HDMI to the HDMI port of my computer. I would like this to be my
Let boot things up...
The grub boot menu appears on the secondary screen. Apparently the HDMI
port is considered the primary port by the computer manufacturer.
There's no way to change this in the BIOS.
So I thought, let's make the 24" the primary and the 27" the secondary
display. I can always buy an extra 5m VGA cable to replace my new 5m
Let boot things up...
The grub boot menu appears on the primary screen. So far so good.
Waiting for the login prompt, and yes, there it is...
on the secondary screen :)
And yes, I've double checked the settings under Devices->Displays and
made sure that the Samsung 24" is the Primary Display.
This might be a little bit out of topic on this list but I am getting
out of options. So here we go and thank you for your patience:
I have a few Fedora clients on one subnet, a firewall and the Internet
on one side. Then in a different room, far away from my router I have a
HP printer with a RJ-45 connector.
I then bought an inexpensive Wi-Fi Repeater/Router with 2 Ethernet ports
(I guess 1 WAN, 1 LAN), thinking I could connect a cable from the LAN
port and to the Wifi using that device allowing me to share that printer
over my network.
I've setup that device as a repeater and the wifi part works. However it
seems the LAN interface can only be setup as a different subnet. Let's
say my network is 192.168.0.x then the LAN interface IP is automatically
set by the device firmware as 192.168.1.x (netmasks are all at
255.255.255.0) . The repeater IP is currently given by the DHCP server
running on my router and on 192.168.0.x. Currently I can't see the
printer from my computer.
I could also set up the device as a router (I however assume I'd need a
cable from the WAN port to my router), an AP (would need a cable from my
router to the device - so no) or an WISP (not what I need neither) but
it doesn't seem to fit.
I've already spent 2 days on this and starting to lose my hair... so do
you guys have any suggestion or done this before?
Looking forward to reading from you.
running Fedora 31 on my Thinkpad X230i I can't use the build-in camera because
there is no /dev/video0. I remember to have used the camera in the past for
video conferencing with https://palava.tv.
What has happend? Ehat to do to get /dev/video0 back?

This is the users' list, so most of the people here are just *users* of
Fedora. The people who *make* Fedora mostly hang out on other lists,
The people who *test* Fedora mostly hang
out on the test list.
You'll have much better luck with your questions there.
