Fedora :: Post-install F Customization Script?

May 1, 2011

Anyone know of a script to do the usual stuff to Fedora that you may want to do following a fresh installation? Such as... install rpmfusion, install the real adobe flash, install sun's java, etc etc. There's plenty of guides/howto's out there, but I'm about to start working on something like 'winetricks', but for fedora. Thought I'd ask to see if anyone has seen something like that first.

Fedora :: GDM Customization Under Gnome 3?

Jun 5, 2011

I've been looking for a while, a way to customize my gdm screen under the new gnome 3 (fedora 15). As of now the touchpad click of my laptop is disabled under the gdm screen but not when I log into my session. I figure the gnome settings must be different under gdm so I need to find a way to change said settings but up until now I wasn't successful. Does anyone have an idea on how to activate the touchpad click under gdm ? And more generally how to customize the gdm screen in gnome 3 (change the themes, etc) ?

N.B : Already know how to change the background of the gdm screen. All you have to do is put the background you want in the folder fitting your screen resolution under "/usr/share/backgrounds/lovelock/default-stripes" then by editing the file "/usr/share/backgrounds/lovelock/default-stripes/lovelock.xml" so that the name of the new background is up to date within that file

Software :: Post Install Fedora 15 / Cannot Mount DVD Backup

Jul 11, 2011

I just upgraded from Fedora F11 to F15. Before making this transition, I backed up my system using my Mac's DVD burn hardware and tested the disk on my F11 system. Ok.After F15 install, the DVD backup won't mount. I've tested a generic DVD from a tech book and this will mount. Ok.What else can I do? hfs-tools is installed. I don't know how to go about troubleshooting this.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Mega Lines Of Update Post Install

Jul 11, 2009

So, my second real attempt at getting the 64 bit F11 up and running. I just started adding stuff before all the updates. Crash. So, I'm in the post install phase. Before anything else I installled akmod-nvidia manually, rebooted, and I'm doing yum update right now. I'm hoping many dependencies are solved in the update. There are about 209 line items to update after the initial install. Been updated all afternoon.

So, after the updates are done, I'm heading over to download the different repos I need for the fun stuff. Did you know Java is installed with this first yum update? Wasn't like that in F10. I think I tried 5 times on F10 before I got it right.

Fedora Hardware :: No Sound Post Install On Alienware M11x

May 26, 2010

I am loving the opensource driver as I don't have to switch to "discrete" mode in BIOS to get 3D support as I would have to with Ubuntu. (M11x has switchable graphics which is not supported by the nvidia proprietary driver for linux) I need some help with the audio though. In case of Ubuntu 10.04 I had to download and install realtek HD drivers for linux from


I cannot do the same for Fedora as I get compile errors.


This is after I run the install script as specified in the "Readme".

Here is my system config .

It works. I just realized that sound is heard when the laptop is connected to an external speaker. Internal speakers still don't work. I don't know how to fix this (probably fix the switches somewhere another mixer gui or via command line) and I don't really care as the internal speakers aren't that great and I almost never use them.

Fedora Installation :: 15 Post Install Boot - Computer Hangs Before Grub Loads

Jun 5, 2011

I performed a clean install of Fedora 15 from DVD and it goes fine until the end when the install program says to reboot the computer. Once I do that, the computer hangs before Grub loads, i.e. just after all of the BIOS messages, so there isn't any error message to indicate what is wrong. I had no issues with Fedora 14.

OpenSUSE Install :: Post-install Update Fails

Nov 18, 2009

On a fresh install (tried two new installs now) I'm getting an error when I try to go out to the update repositories after the install. I'm getting a "failed to download /suse/setup/descr/packages.DU.gz from [URL] It seems to get about 48% and just hangs there. This happens both if I try downloading updates during the install or if I try doing an on-line update after the system is up.

Debian :: Set Up Post Install Wireless Configuration?

Dec 25, 2010

The install auto-config has always worked for me. On this laptop, I needed some firmware, however. I think I've got the firmware installed, but I now need to get the wireless set up. The post-install network configuration tools I've seen thus far are intimidating, unlike the simple during-install config.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Start Post-Install Programs In 10.04 LTS?

Oct 2, 2010

I'm a Ubuntu Desktop newbie, and I wiped XP Media Center off my old HP Pavillion Dv8000 last night to install 10.04 LTS. With very little tweaking, I got everything to run right including wireless, but now I notice that I can't run any new (post-install) programs that I install through Ubuntu Software Center. In fact, I haven't tried installing any other way, but all software that was part of the default installation works fine, but these programs won't run:VLC Media PlayerSkypeStarsWhen I click on the programs to run them, the other apps slow or freeze for 30-45 seconds as if the computer is contemplating starting them, and then nothing. No errors, no shell or blank window - nothing. They just don't run.I only created one user account at O/S install and as far as I can tell is the SU, so I can't see it being a permissions issue.

Slackware :: Create A Slackbuild From Post-install.py Script?

Sep 6, 2010

I've seen that some guy here in this forum has installed Code_Aster and Salome-Meca on his Slackware. There is also a nice howto for installing CA on Slackware13 64bit. I already managed to install the two softwares and make them working without big troubles. I would like to create the slackware pakages from the sources in order to make easy uninstalling and upgrading the packages. Unfortunately I'm not so skilled, the installation procedure is a bit different from the usual one so I cannot start from some existing slackbuild. They must be installed launching a post_install.py script after uncompressing the archive. I'm unable to understand what this python script does but I think they are installed as a stand-alone programs with all the dependencies and configuration files in the destination folder. I wonder if you think it's worth to create the package and ask for some tips on how to do this.

OpenSUSE :: Recommend Some KDE Customization

Sep 21, 2010

I wanted my final install of openSuse 11.3 to be, and I had chosen Gnome. Well, after a few days, I got bored with it again since I've done so much with it on other Distros, so I installed openSuse 11.3 with KDE last night lol. (Reinstalling Linux distros is just so much fun lol).Anyways, I'm currently running my KDE 4.4 Suse desktop and would like to know what some of you guys have for customizations. I'd like to make my computer real nice with cool themes, icons, widgets and whatever else I can change.

So please, just respond to this thread if you have done any customizations, simple or complex, and let us know how you like it and possibly how you did it! I'd love to hear all of your guys' feedback and look forward to all of the responses. I appreciate all of your time!

Debian Installation :: Black Screen Right After Startup Post Install

Feb 23, 2016

I have installed Debian Jessie 8.0.3 64-bit net install on a MSI CX620. Installation went fine but trying to boot it up the first time nothing but a black screen shows up. I've tried:

Holding shift on startup - Nothing

Press down all keys - Not much, only ctrl+alt+delete makes the screen turn off and then on again.

I'm thinking that I had secure boot on which I now after installation see could be a problem, but I didn't think it would be a problem as I could just go into bios and turn it off, but seeing now that I can't even go into bios it may be a problem.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 Post-software Update X Server Won't Start

Nov 7, 2010

I have been running OpenSuSE 11.1 with the proprietary VNIDIA driver for a year or so and recently upgraded my internet connection from slow old dialup. I installed some software upgrades this made possible but the process failed on some point (I didn't make a note of the details) and the next time I tried to log on it booted up to the CLI. I tried startx and got the message;

Ubuntu Installation :: Relocate Home Directory Post Install

Jan 27, 2010

I'm trying to relocate my home directory which currently resides at the default, root location /home/user.

My Systems Specs:
Root resides on a Raid0 LVM MD0
NEW Drive resides on Raid0 LVM MD1

I installed a new disk on a LVM(Logical Volume Manager), and now want to move my default home directory to the new location. I did rsync my home directory from the OLD to the NEW. When I do update my /etc/fstab with the NEW home location, I recieve errors upon rebooting, that certainly relate to permission issues, including some from Nautilus that mentions permissions issues...

I also tried to update the USERS/GROUP Manager with the NEW location but after reopening the USERS/GROUP manager, I can see the original location has been reverted back. I can create a new user and succesfully map their home directory to the NEW home location on my MD1 LVM. Any links on home to remap their existing HOME directory to a new location?

Software :: RedHat Kickstart Post Fglrx Rpm Install Not Working

Feb 23, 2010

As the title says, I'm building a kickstart for a RedHat installation.I'm trying to incorporate the firegl driver rpm installation and its halfway working, not completly. What I've tried so far is to place the rpm in the --nochroot and in the normal chroot enviornment and neither one works. In the --nochroot, install it with rpm --root /mnt/sysimage/ and in the normal post i just do an rpm -ivh. In either case the fglrx folder is built within /lib/modules, however everything thats supposed to be installed never makes it to the newly installed root. I'm thinking that its actually getting installed to the installation / as opposed to the new /.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Customization - Turn Certain Features On Or Off

Mar 20, 2010

I'm currently running 9.10 and I'm wondering if it isn't possible to turn certain features on or off. For example the dock that appears at the bottom of the screen, I don't dig it but it isn't under System ---> Preferences ---> Startup applications. Also when I connect/disconnect my modem, can I change the size of the notification window and how long it stays on the screen? Another is how to stop everything I plug in appearing on the desktop. I prefer an uncluttered desktop and would like to open plug-in devices through Places.

Ubuntu :: Docky And Gnome Do UI Customization

Jul 22, 2010

This year in college I've had the liberty to be learning about Linux. This was mostly in the shell so a lot of GUI applications we didn't use. The fun part of this all is that once you know how to work in Bash. Linux isn't all so frightening and confusing anymore ! So I've decided to finally take the shot on switching from Windows to Ubuntu Desktop and I must say I'm quite amazed with the customization you can do in Ubuntu.I just installed Docky and I installed Gnome Do. Now it has come to my attention that Gnome Do can integrate with Docky however I do have a small question concerning the customization of the Dock bar. In Gnome Do I would really like to have the panel look from Docky and I was wondering if this is possible. To me it seems that it's only possible to use the 3D look which looks a lot like Mac OSx. I'm aiming for a bit of a Windows 7 interface however.
