Fedora :: Sound Settings Not Saved (FC15 & Gnome Shell)

Jun 23, 2011

Not sure if others have noticed this. When I go into sound settings, click the output tab, select the sound device I want to edit and change the bass levels etc, close the window and go back in all the settings are reset to default and no changes are saved.

If I leave the window open and make the changes they are reflected in VLC for example, but if I close the window it again resets to defaults and my Bass is back at Maximum....

Is this a BUG I should report or is there something I can download to get this configured elsewhere or to fix this issue? I seem to recall something similar in Fedora 14 that was fixed, but I cant remember how I did it now

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Settings Are Not Saved?

May 7, 2011

I am running a dedicated audio PC (Ubuntu 10.04 on Intel Atom 525) with a Juli@ sound card. I had everything set up and working great up until I accidentally pulled the sound card out of its slot while the computer was running. After that, the computer no longer recognized the Juli@ card.

I managed to fix the basic problem by following the Comprehensive Sound Problem Solution Guide- deleting and reinstalling ALSA is what did the trick. The only problem remaining is that the computer no longer remembers the output settings in the Sound Preferences dialog. The setting stays for as long as the computer is on, but as soon as I turn it off and reboot it, the sound output setting reverts back to the internal audio. I tried 'sudo alsactl store 1', but this does not work. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Fedora :: Settings Not Being Saved

Jun 13, 2010

I'm new to Fedora; been using it for just a few hours. I have Fedora 10 setup on a LiveUSB and it works great. However, any setting that I make or files I save are gone when I reboot. For instance, I change the mouse cursor speed and made a "Test" word doc and saved it to the desktop. Yet when I reboot, the "Test" file is gone and does not even show as a recent document and the mouse speed setting was set back to default.Am I missing something that need to be accomplished prier to the shutdown?

Fedora :: Settings Not Saved After Reboot

May 24, 2010

I'm having a problem with the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental, I bought a new monitor, Samsung 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor (B2430H) and my old monitor was a 24 inch too but with a different native resolution, my new monitors native resolution is 1680x1050 and I try to change the settings in the system settings/ display/ size&orientation area since the mesa drivers don't have a xorg.conf but my settings don't save after a reboot. Is there a config file for the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental where I can change these settings?

Fedora :: Error Gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 When Choose A Minimal Install Then Add ONLY The Defaults Of The "GNOME Desktop" Package

May 3, 2011

I noticed that in Fedora 15 Beta when you choose a minimal install then add ONLY the defaults of the "GNOME Desktop" package, you will get this error: gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 has a required package:

system-backgrounds-gnome

When I look for gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 it is not on any installation menu list. I prefer gnome, but installed KDE and that worked. Any ideas of getting gnome to work?

Fedora :: Do Not Manage To Get Sound Working On FC15

Aug 5, 2011

I have been troubleshooting for some time but do not manage to get my sound working on FC15. I want to use the integrated sound from my motherboard ASRock 890GX Extreme3 and I am testing it with the headphones on the front output. I noticed I can get sound from the motherboard output on the back (front audio should be wired as well though, it does work in Windows). My ALSA information can be found at: [URL]

Fedora :: FC15 Gnome 3 - How To Stop Screen From Blanking

Sep 2, 2011

How do I stop the display from turning off? In 'System Settings/Screen', I can only choose from a preset range of minutes - there is no option to disable it. Very annoying when watching a 90 minute movie, for instance. At least under FC14 I had the disable option. I tried unchecking Power Manager in gnome-session-properties, but that disabled the system from suspending when the laptop lid is closed and might have other ramifications as well. I tried disabling Screensaver in gnome-session-properties, but 'System Settings/Screen' still showed up with the same options, so it appears to be unrelated. Anyway, I suspect this is a power management issue, not a screensaver issue.

Fedora :: FC15 Stop Gnome From Turning Screen Off?

Jun 5, 2011

Under Gnome2 you were able to stop the OS from turning off the screen by selecting "never" as the time to turn off the display when the computer was idle. This was found under the screensaver configuration.The screen tool for Gnome3 does not offer "never" as an option. Does anyone know how to stop Fedora 15/Gnome 3 from turning off the display?

Fedora Hardware :: How To Disable System Sound FC15

Jul 7, 2011

I tried all possible solutions for disabling the worst sound ever (BEEP!). I have this problem only when the login screen appears and after I clicked on my account's icon to write my password and login. I tried to disable it (alert sound) from 'sound' in 'system settings' by muting it or even changing the sound to the other options and nothing happened. Then I search for this problem and found a solution that remove the module by executing

Code:
rmmod pcspkr

but I get an error because Module pcspkr does not exist in /proc/modules
so I checked in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and it has the following line under sound drivers

Code:
# sound drivers
blacklist snd-pcsp

As I understand, that is the new name of pcspkr and it is blacklisted - how is it still able to play this terrible BBBEEEEPPPP sound at login?

Ubuntu :: Where Are Wireless Settings Saved?

May 21, 2010

For various reasons, I have reinstalled Ubuntu 10.04 three times on my laptop. The 2nd time I reinstalled it, when I would connect to a wireless network, it would say connected but the network manager icon at the top panel said disconnected. What confused me is when I booted up during the 2nd install, it connected to my wireless without a problem. Is wireless info (saved networks, etc) saved in the home directory somewhere??

I didn't have the icon problem the first time, so I thought hmm, I have my stuff backed up, let's try it again except let's format everything this time. The third time I had no issues with the icon saying disconnected. My partitions are split with /root and /home. The first 2 times, I did not format home. The third time I did. Even though the first time I didn't have this issue, I couldn't understand why it popped up the 2nd time. Now that I formatted EVERYTHING, the issue isn't there.

AKA:
1st try - no issues - did not format home.
2nd try - icon says disconnected when connected - did not format home.
3rd try - no issues - formatted everything.

Ubuntu :: Screen Settings Not Saved After Reboot?

Feb 11, 2011

I know this has been covered before but I can't find a resolution to the issue. Kubuntu simply refuses to save the screen settings, and each time I reboot it returns to 1440 x 900. The correct resolution should be 1920 x 1080.

KRandr shows 1440x900 (auto) in its drop down Size field. I've set krandr to load on startup so that I can set the correct resolution but of course this means I have to set the panel size as well. I've only recently installed KUbuntu and it's great except for this issue. Surely there must be a simple fix? I'm not a noobie and have about 4 years experience on Ubuntu / openSuse etc.

OpenSUSE :: Power Management Settings Are Not Saved?

May 22, 2011

I've got openSUSE 11.4 64 bit system with stable 2.6.38 kernel and KDE 4.6.3. Problem is that when I want to change some settings in the power management (like brightness, screen energy saving time-off, display dim), they doesn't seem to save, even after the X restart and full reboot. It's seems like screen energy saving is set permanently for couple of minutes, don't matter what time do i set, it just discards my settings, even they are correctly viewed in the gui.

Fedora Hardware :: Wiki Page On GNOME Or List Which Graphics Cards Work On 15 With GNOME Shell?

Software :: Gnome-terminal Profiles Not Being Saved?

Aug 19, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.4 on a 32-bit machine, and I find that my gnome-terminal profile settings are not being saved across a restart. However, I can make the profiles save if I run gnome-terminal under root access. This makes me suspect that I have a permissions problem, but I am set up to run as Administrator, and I am the only user, so I am baffled why this isn't working. It certainly did work in version 9.10 on the same box.

This is getting irritating, since I have a method of setting up a development web server/debugger environment which requires 3 different tabs with associated profiles to make each a distinct set of colors and behavior.

Fedora :: GNOME Window Settings - Missing In FC12?

Nov 18, 2009

noticed that Fedora 12 made some odd design decisions for default GNOME settings, and I couldn't locate the System->Preferences->Windows menu item to change them back. The design options I'm talking about:

* No icons in menus (System menu for instance has no icons, though there are icons under the Preferences and Administration sub-menus... the root System menu though has none)

* Icons on toolbars are configured so the label text appears to the right of the buttons, so this makes File Explorer in Nautilus look funny to me. I like the text appearing beneath the icons like it has always been up until now.

why the Windows configuration has been removed from Fedora 12? The control-center package provides the bins for all the preferences items except for gnome-window-settings; so is it upstream that did this? Anyway, I had to dig around in the gconf-editor to find where the window settings are kept so I could change them "manually", since the Windows tool is gone now. For anyone else who wants to know, it's under /desktop/gnome/interface in the gconf-editor (namely, keys toolbar_style, buttons_have_icons, and menus_have_icons are the ones I changed).

Fedora :: Gnome - Settings Daemon Bugged After Update?

Sep 19, 2009

The gnome-settings daemon was updated today on my Fedora 11 machine and it's now performing all kinds of interesting activities. It's using my CPU a ton. And it's generating lots of network traffic. This appears to be a massive bug of some sort. Anyone know any more details? I haven't found anything yet.

If you haven't updated it, DON'T!

2.26.1-10 appears to be the culprit.

Fedora :: Gnome Shell And Icon Themes

Jun 5, 2011

Seems many icon themes still don't really play nice with gnome shell. They work totally fine for the most part, except the tray icons, they like to change them to their own monochrome icons which usually look bad (and most of the time not even all of them are changed). Is there a way to make any icon theme use the default gnome shell symbolic icons? Right now I am using elementary and its mostly fine, but it changed the battery icon to an ugly smaller version. I'd love to be able to change it to the default icon.

Fedora :: Gnome Shell Many Window Tiling

Jun 21, 2011

I'm looking for a feature in Gnome Shell that would allow me to tile all of the open windows on a desktop. Something akin to Fluxbox's ArrangeWindows keyboard shortcut. I know you can tile two windows side by side, but I would need something capable of tiling ALL of them. Does something like this exist, or would I need to look into writing a Gnome Shell extension?

Fedora :: Update Breaks Gnome Shell?

Aug 14, 2011

I updated last night and after a reboot I can get the GDM login but as my desktop loads it suddenly stops and complains of an error and won't load. If I load legacy Gnome desktop with Compiz it loads but ALL the lettering and words on the interface are messed up. By this I mean the letters are upside down and the words are spelt backwards. The mouse menus also work in reverse as in the menus themselves are also upside down and the highlighting moves from bottom to top as I move down the menu. Amusing but not what I want from my computer. There is nothing in /var/log/messages or /var/log/Xorg.0.log that would indicate anything is wrong.

I sooo don't want to have to rebuild, again, because of instabilities in F15 updates.

Fedora :: Handle A Gnome-shell Lock Up?

Jun 7, 2011

Sooner or later you may experience a Gnome shell lock up. After two weeks of daily use I experienced my first one today: the cursor turned to a hand, and no amount of clicking and pressing Esc would have any effect; Windows key didn't bring Activities in focus either. If you experience these or similar symptoms you can restart the gnome-shell in order to unlock the Gnome session:

1) pass to a console (press Ctrl+Alt+F2)

2) log in

3) execute: ps -ef | grep gnome-shell in order to find the gnome-shell process id (PID); the output may look something like

[Code]...

Pressing Ctrl+ALt+F1 (or, if that doesn't work -- Ctrl+ALt+F7) should take you back to the Gnome session. You should see the restarted gnome-shell. (You can now return to the console, log out from the console, and return to the Gnome session).

Fedora :: Gnome Shell - Change Defaults?

I feel like this is a RTFM question, so if anyone wants to just direct me to the right manual, that's fine.

I just installed gnome-shell and i cant seem to find anyway to customize anything, esp. the task bar, the clock, et cetera

is there a preferences gui or something that I cant find? I feel like i'm trying to use a mac....

It seems pretty sweet, but, i dont know how to get used to not having a window list... i dont wanna pull up the "activities window" or alt tab every time i want switch windows (esp when my hand is used to just moving to the top of the screen and clicking on the right window...

There's this autohide taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but i cant for the life of me figure out what it's for, or how to put things on it....
