Fedora :: Multiseat Feature That Had Been In The Feature List At One Point?

Mar 9, 2010

Does anyone know what happened to the Multiseat feature that had been in the feature list at one point?To briefly summarise, a single machine with multiple graphics cards, sound cards, keyboards & mice provides multiple seats for users. Each user gets their own monitor, keyboard, mouse & perhaps audio. The rest of the machine resources are then shared.

The last I saw on the topic was this discussion, although I have a recollection that there was going to be support in a newer version of X.Org. I've googled around quite a bit, but can't seem to find anything.

Anybody know anything? It would be a great feature to have and it's frustrating to have had such an omission since F8 :-o

Mar 2, 2009

i've been using foxit pdf reader on Windows for sometime now, on Fedora i can't find any pdf reader that has tab feature so i can use only one window because i get to open a few pdfs at one time.

I have tried installing Foxit under WINE but scrolling through the pages takes forever

anyone know of any good pdf reader that has tab feature? i'm surprised that the outcomes of my searches haven't brought up a single Linux pdf reader that has tab feature...

Fedora :: How To Set Auto Complete Feature For SCP

Aug 18, 2010

How do I have an auto completion feature for scp? I often need to 'scp ' a file to a remote server, then I type:

PHP Code:
scp someprogram paulga@pinherstforestrain.math.edu
I'd begin to type tab before or after the input of @. But the available choices are mainly:
@localhost6, @localhost.localdomain, @localhost, etc..

Which file records these hosts name? Second, to execute a program in current directory, I have to type ./program, how can I omit the prefix, or I could type it as I type "octave",etc.

Fedora :: Is Konsole Most Feature Rich Terminal?

Jun 16, 2011

I've been looking for a alternative terminal to work in while using F15. I've done some Googleing and came across Konsole as being the most feature rich terminal. I'd like a terminal that provides a lot of features so I could possibly increase my efficiency. If something is KDE like Konsole does that mean I have to install the whole KDE environment? If so is there any Fedora terminal alternatives?

Fedora :: Feature - Transparent Local Version Control System For Documents

Nov 13, 2009

I think a version control system should be integrated by default into the user's documents directory. Any time a file is saved, the app would check to see if there is another file by the same name, and if there is, make a hidden copy of the previous version with name such as ".filename.[datestamp]" . This would be similar to what gEdit already does, but at a broader level.

A more robust system would include controls for watching more directories. It would also show comparisons with previous versions of the document. Being file based, it wouldn't care if unneeded backup files are destroyed.

If file space is an issue, backup files would only contain the differences between the next and previous versions. This would mean, however, that back-up files would be useless if a few are irretrievable.

Obviously, users would be able to turn this app on or off, if they don't need/desire this feature.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Install To Hard Drive" Feature Of The F14 X86_64 Desktop Disk?

Jan 5, 2011

I managed to have the ATI Catalyst driver (10.12) installed on a machine with F14 x86_64, Radeon HD 57xx and I also installed the ATI SDK Samples for OpenCL. ATI Catalyst reports OpenGL fine, glxinfo is fine, all OpenCL samples that do not use OpenGL are working fine. I used the "install to hard drive" feature of the F14 x86_64 desktop disk. Problem: which headers and libraries do I need to install in order to use OpenGL in an application? I would also like to have the OpenCL working on the system for another application.

Previously I had a small application working with SDL + Mesa library on FC9 using software rendering, but after F14 installation and ATI card addition the app is not working. Files gl.h, glu.h are missing. I checked the system and I found only a glew.h header. I tried linking against glew but it complains about glu.h (file not found).

I looked on the Internet and I found a post that someone suggested installing xorg-x11-devel, but there is no such package. I tried installing libX11-devel...f1.x86_64 but the gl.h/glu.h were still missing. I tried compiling the latest Mesa library with make linux-dri-x86_64 and it complains about egl. All dependencies have been checked (dri2proto, X11 version, libdrm, kernel version). After Mesa installation ATI Catalyst is no longer reporting OpenGL and glxinfo is not working. Am I supposed to install just the Mesa library without the ATI driver? Am I supposed to use glew only with the ATI driver?

Fedora :: Disable The "Desktop Expose" Feature Of Gnome?

Feb 14, 2011

I'm not sure if this is a feature of Gnome, compviz, or some other part of Fedora, but whenever I place my mouse in the upper right corner of the desktop, all of my open windows zoom out to a Mac-like Expose feature which allows me to select which window I'd like to change focus to. Here is an example of what this looks like: [URL]

Does anyone know how to disable this feature? I actually find it highly annoying, as I tend to place the mouse in that region either on accident or unintentionally, especially when accessing my machine remotely via VNC. I've had a lot of trouble googling for combinations of "Gnome expose" and "Gnome desktop expose", I have a feeling I am calling this feature by the wrong name. how to do this myself - install the Compiz Configuration Settings Manager (the package name is "ccsm") and disable the "Scale" plugin.

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 - Konsole Tab Autocomplete Feature

Mar 13, 2011

I notice that in 11.4 when I try to autocomplete (Tab Key) to /etc or /etc/init.d/ it auto completes differently than the way it did in other 11.x openSUSE versions. i.e.
sudo /et
Then hit tab; it auto completes to /etc (space on the end of it)

sudo /etc/init.
Then hit tab; it auto completes to /etc/init.d (space on the end of it)

If I simply try:
Then hit tab; it auto completes properly to /etc/

Ubuntu :: Disable XF86Search Feature / Key?

Feb 5, 2010

I want to disable the XF86Search feature in my system. I will try anything.

One of my mouse buttons, when pressed, triggers this XF86Search no matter what I disable or change. (This feature opens up my browser and goes to a search page.) Strangely the mouse button is being interpreted as a key, not a mouse-button press. (This actually may be a bug in Ubuntu...)

How do I disable this feature?

I am running KDE 4.3.5 with Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic (Kubuntu). Though I use BTNX to configure my mouse buttons, this feature has absolutely nothing to do with that. I have tested by disabling BTNX completely and clicking this special button on my mouse still loads a search page.

Here is the xev command output:

KeymapNotify event, serial 36, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
keys: 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Shutdown Confirmation Feature-bug

When shutting down 10.04 you are forced to deal with a confirmation window. In previous releases it was possible to switch this off, e.g. right click shutdown button or using gconf-editor. I can't remove this feature bug in 10.04.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 On USB Stick - Persistence Feature

Jun 18, 2010

The Pendrive Linux site states the following in regards to a USB Flash Install using their Universal USB Installer:
"Once finished, you should have a Live USB Ubuntu 10.0 that can be run directly from your Flash Drive, just as it does from a Live CD. Ubuntu's casper-rw feature IS ALSO utilized for persistently saving and restoring your changes on subsequent boots."

The part that confuses me is the second statement that the Casper-RW feature is utilized. Isn't that incorrect for the case of a Live Install using their Universal USB Installer? I later discovered that a Persistent Install can be created by downloading and using Version 2.5 of the Linux Live USB Creator. In this case, a second partition is created on the Flash drive for the casper rw feature. Is my understanding correct, or can the Pendrive Linux Universal Installer somehow create a persistent USB drive that will save data and settings?

Ubuntu :: Reporting An Amazing Feature?

Dec 22, 2010

UBUNTU 10.10.This is almost funny but maybe useful: As I am working around my desktops, at times I was getting a sudden changes where shorter screens of my open programs and workspaces appeared. I pressed Esc and all went fine again.Since this was happening frequently I tried to find out what triggers it.I discovered that when I move my mouse pointer over the right bottom corner on my desktop all workspaces will be shown in reduced size in my desktop. When I moved my mouse in the left bottom corner, all open program in the active workspace where shown reduced in size (even the auxiliary pop up toolbars. Esc works fine to return to normal. When I move my mouse over the top right corner then all open programs in the open workspace will get minimized, Esc will not bring them back, you have to click in the task bar. When I move my mouse over the top left corner, unfortunately nothing happens.

General :: Disable A Touch Pad Feature All Together?

Jul 4, 2011

For instance, the one thing I hated more than anything, was the touch-pad on here, and I mean whenever you touched it it counted as a mouse click. I always hated it and in Windows I found a way to disable it with disabling the entire mouse pad, how do I do the same in Ubuntu? In every other distribution I didn't have to worry about it, but I suppose that I'm using the proprietary drivers or something.

Anyway, TL;DR: How do I disable a touch pad feature

Fedora :: F13 - New Feature (since F9) When "command Not Found"?

This has popped up a couple of times, seemingly randomly, as I'm working in a terminal window. I just mistyped "dirs" as "dits" and got this:

$ dits
Command not found.

* Downloading details about the software sources. Downloading list of packages..I say seemingly randomly because it doesn't do it if I just type some random gobbledeegook command and hit enter. Is this some new feature (since F9) that is trying to find the missing command?
