I just noticed that my screensaver was not working in Fedora 14 x86_64 / Gnome. I searched in Yumex on "screensaver" and reinstalled all that were marked as installed, but no joy. Not only does the screensaver not come on (it is set to 30 minutes) but if I go into Preferences > Screensaver and click on one of the choices it does not display the selected screensaver in the preview window. That is, none of them display except Floating Feet and Floating Fedora Bubbles. What is going on is to discover where those two screensavers come from as opposed to the others. i.e., what packages are they from?
I just install rss-glx, - the really slick screensavers package, but there are no new screensavers being listed in the GNOME preferences panel in F13. How do I get these nice screensavers into the screensaver preferences?
I've recently installed the package xscreensaver-gl-extra, and noticed not one of the screensavers on that package works - all I get is a blank screen on all of them. However, I remember those screensavers working under Jaunty on exactly the same hardware (didn't test them on Karmic).How can I make them work again?
I like using vnstat to check my downloads. I have it working on my other installed distro's but for some weird reason I cannot get it working under Fedora 14 Gnome. Set up the same way, it tells you exactly what to type when you first run vnstat so its not that. But I try to run vnstat after setting the DB for eth1 I get this:
Code: eth1: Not enough data available yet. This is at least 30 gig later and 4 days it would be great. Or any commands I can run to give more info. Was not really sure what else to give on this matter.
I am using Fedora 13 x86_64 on my notebook.I have been using this for quite sometime now. I have a problem with the Gnome desktop. Here is what happenedI am using gnome with a single panel on the top. I changed the properties of the panel, made it transparent and then changed its position to the bottom. As soon as i did this, my desktop was not responding. I can move the mouse pointer, but the icons and menus and everything else became inactive. Within a minute the music playing in the background stopped working. None of the keyboard shortcuts are working. I waited for sometime but nothing happened, so I restarted the system.
Once I login after restart, the same problem is repeating, nothing loads up. I can just see the default background and the mouse pointer rotating as it does when some process is going on. But nothing loads up even after waiting for 15mins. Right now I am using Xfce which is working perfectly fine. Can someone help me with this.??---------- Post added at 04:01 PM GMT ---------- Previous post was at 11:13 AM GMT --------UPDATEI tried fixing it by uninstalling the gnome desktop and reinstalling it.I did the following command in terminal > yum remove gnome-desktopand it removed several dependancies too. I restarted the system and not even the loginscreen is showing up now.I am trying to install gnome from my fedora live CD. But I cannot figure out how.
Fedora 14 is the first time i have used linux on my machine for any length of time at all. I have been using Gnome but i prefer KDE so have both installed. Now I have libimobile (is that what its called?) and ifuse and have had a bit of a look around. why it mounts automatically in Gnome but not KDE and how can i mount it in KDE?
my Gnome Desktop is not working means i can't able to copy/paste into it and my fedora directory window is opening in konqueror web browser.plz tell me what is default for fedora dir. window and item from desktop are deleted.i am using fedora 14
fvwm2 2.5.30 gnome-session 2.28.0 Fedora 12 64 bit
I have this setting in my .fvwm2rc: Key q A 4 Close The above works fine in fvwm without gnome, but when I execute gnome-session, seems the modifier is ignored. If I replace the '4' with 'A' and restart fvwm2 under gnome (fvwm2 --replace) the letter q will close the window. But with '4' or 'M' with gnome-session, the modifier is ignored. Also tried : xmodmap -e "add mod4 = Super_L"
I enabled Personal File Sharing under System > Preferences > Personal File Sharing. I clicked on Share public files on network and closed it. Then I put some files that I wanted to share in the Public folder and I went to another computer that was on the same router (they are both running Fedora 13) and I clicked on the Network tab (bookmark) in nautilus and there are no files there.
I basically can't get my mic to work in F12. After several releases fighting with pulseaudio, F11 finally worked almost OBO, after going to system->preferences->advanced sound configuration and setting all the input volumes to the maximum. But now there's no advanced sound configuration tool, and I just can't find anything to make it work. Skype isn't working, nor is gnome-sound-recorder. I do record some static, but nothing more. By the way, I'm on an Acer Timeline 3810T.
I cannot right click with my mouse on the gnome applications menu to get the properties/edit menu option. This is on F12 on 64bit. Instead I get: "help, remove from panel, lock panel". I dont have this problem with anything else on the top bar.

Turns out I have to install package alacarte and then go to System > Preferences > Main Menu
just installed openSuse on my desktop. Ever since I've been having problems with screensavers. When I open screensaver preferences, I can click on and see previews of all of the 2D screensavers, but the 3D screensavers just give me a black screen as a previews (even when I ask for a fullscreen preview). how-to fix this situation so that I can run 3D screensavers?
I'm running KDE, with 11.2 32-Bit. At first, my screen saver worked just fine, coming on after 130 min, being just long enough to watch a movie. Since changing the screen saver, but not the duration before activation my screen saver comes on every 20 min. I have tried changing and saving settings in YaST and going back to the original choice of screensaver, neither of which have worked.
I run a molecular biology lab and we like to run the "Molecule" GL screensaver in order to look cool (I know it doesn't actually save screens, and it wastes energy, but you know..). I'm about to install Opensuse 11.3 on all 24 of our laptops and I find that the number of GL screensavers installed as standard is greatly reduced from previous Opensuse releases. Any idea where I can get the "Molecule" and other screensavers?
I am running KDE and have the following relevant packages installed: kdeartwork4-screensaver xscreensaver xscreensaver-data xscreensaver-data-extra gnome-screensaver gnome-screensaver-extra This apparently gives me just 8 GL screensavers - there used to be a great many more?
I recently updated to OpenSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4 . I do not find the great series of screensavers which existed in previous versions. I look in sysemsettings, desktop, but there I find only two version of blank screen as screensaver and no way to install something else.
I was wondering if there is an application that allows the computer to chose a screensaver at random from a specific list that you make. I know that you can make the computer choose any screensaver at random, but I want it to choose only the ones I specify at random. I have about 6 screensavers that I want it to choose at random.
don't use gnome/KDE or XFCE, I use Ratpoison. Because of this, the normal state of my computer is to show my wallpaper which rotates often enough that I don't need or want a screensaver.How do I stop the screen from going black every ten minutes? This is also bad when I watch a movie.
I copied some xscreensavers into the screensavers folder which is in usr/applications/screensavers. Now when I go to my screensaver application, they don't show up at all. What should I do? I am running Ubuntu 10.10.
When using the very nice opengl screensavers, rss-glx, etc. the screensavers are very choppy.I tried modifying my xorg.conf but still no go.Anyway to get the rss-glx screensavers to run at normal speed?I read online that Intel disable the hardware acceleration.This is a work laptop but I just wanted to see if I could get it going.
I have a Dell D620 and I can't use any screensavers. Rather, no screensavers work. Just for giggles, I booted a Kubuntu 11.04 CD, updated the sources.list, installed rss-glx and was able to use the rss-glx and other opengl screensavers. The reason I say opengl is because those are the ones that I use but no screensavers work.
