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

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?
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
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
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
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:


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
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
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?
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 :: FC15 Gnome 3 Missing Window Selector?
When I minimise windows, or have several open, I've lost the window selector at the bottom to be able to flip between them. I can go to "activities" and then select them there, or I can ctl-tab to them but I used to like the window selector at the bottom. Anybody located the missing window selector ?

Fedora Installation :: Add Gnome Classic Desktop In FC15?
I installed a fresh live CD version of Fedora 15 which has that new Unity desktop, but I also want the option of booting to the old gnome classic desktop session. So can I add that with the package manager, or just use terminal with yum install ?

Fedora Installation :: Cannot Start X Or Gnome After Upgrade To FC15
I upgraded Sunday evening from FC14 to FC15 using the yum preupgrade method. Services such as httpd, vsftpd, sshd, named and even the VNC server are all running. I can connect via VNC client and get a downgraded gnome desktop, but from the console, I cannot start X or gnome desktop.I have searched many threads over the last day+ and found many references to problems with nVidia drivers - and I have a nVidia adapter. but I am not sure what is next to do and need a lead.

Fedora Hardware :: How To Disable System Sound FC15
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

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

# 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?
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.

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 :: Desktop Settings Not Saved / What To Do?
It's weird - every time I restart Ubuntu, my screen settings are at 1024x768@60Hz. When I change them to my preferred settings, this will completely destroy the order I like about my panel icons and it starts to suck.
I use an Onboard Intel graphics card.
Any advice on what to do?

Ubuntu :: Screen Settings Not Saved After Reboot?
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?
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.

Software :: Gnome-terminal Profiles Not Being Saved?
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.
