I'm going to remove Gnome3 from FC15 and, possibly, install KDE. I'm not sure about the options I have for it:I saw I can remove just the gnome-shell package. This makes me wonder if it is possible to replace the gnome-shell functionality with a gnome-2 equivalent, getting some of the gnome2 back how much of gnome-related packages can I remove? For example, is it advisable to remove gdm in favour of kdm? Are there gtk/gnome programs that are "better" than kde equivalents and are thus best left untouched, along with their dependencies? finally, somewhat unrelated, do you know good tutorials for gnome2.X expatriates to learn modern kde?
Upgraded from FC14 X64 to FC15 X64 yesterday. I've used gnome2 forever, its worked very well for me.My workstation has 4 displays driven by two nvidia cards. One with dual dvi outputs, the other with one dvi one vga. I use the proprietary nvidia driver, NOT nouveau. Each card ties its displays together with twinview, and then xinerama spans across the who cards. This worked splendidly on gnome2, WITHOUT compiz. I used to use compiz when i had two displays so that I could have nice wobbly windows and transparencies, all very nice, but the extra area of the 4 displays was much more important to me. See, xinerama breaks compiz.
When i upgraded from FC14 to 15, my displays went amok, i ended up having to upgrade my nvidia driver, an then couldnt get things working in gnome 3. Finally i fell back to kde, kde4, and lxde both work just as gnome 2 did with my 4 displays. Gnome 3 with Gnome-shell fails spectacularly. Even if I fall back to two displays on one card, its wonky, things dont display properly, and the overview sometimes breaks such that it wont even come up anymore. Gnome3 without gnome-shell also does not work, in fact, i cant even get into gnome, it gives me some error and logs me out when all 4 monitors are enabled, and with only 2, it works, but.. well.. I want my 4 displays!I'm almost certain that compiz is to blame. Gnome's "Fail safe" uses compiz, and i'm betting the compiz isnt working on my 4 displays, causing said error and logout. I have no idea what the heck gnome-shell is doing. It actually displays on two monitors, while the other two are black. The mouse is able to display on all 4, i'm unable to interact with the displays which show gnome, but the displays which are black, seem to respond to my clicks, but they respond on the two montiros which display gnome. Very strange.
I was trying to search some package using the add/remove software provided by gnome3.01 in fedora 15 then it turned out to be failed, the error message is an internal system error has occured. here are the detail:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py", line 423, in _do_search for (pkg, inst) in res:
I've been doing a bit of tweaking, exploring, damaging the system *But making backups for those occasions... They weren't on purpose, I was just trying figure out how they work* Okay, so... How can I get rid of all the XFCE and GNOME packages? Is there a list of all the packages that I can remove? I don't like how minimal XFCE looks and GNOME3 is OKAY, but not my cup of tea, and KDE4.6 with classic toolbar looks pretty cool.
To clarify, I want to remove ALL XFCE and GNOME packages so I can just have a clean KDE environment without non-working and redundant packages.
I am trying to solve multiple issues with my 64x natty install using gnome3 ppa( official ppa from gnome3). I have this setup on two machines, one is a fresh install the other is a upgrade. They both have most of these issues. Here they are: 1) Nautilus will not launch from the favorites bar. It does launch from a shortcut on the desktop. It will not run from the terminal unless I am root. 2) Number lock is disabled at startup (enabled in my bios). I used to be able to enable after nattty had started, I no longer can, though num lock light is lit - number keypad does not work!
3) I have set gnome3 set to let nautilus draw the background and desktop, I get a white screen at boot until Nautilus is launched then I get a background and some desktop icons(no computer or network icons). If I plug in a usb drive the icon appears on my desktop, when I select it I loose the background and have to select it again.
4) Wireless randomly will drop the connection, have to reconnect, sometimes it will, sometimes I have to reboot. I have Fedora installed on a 2nd hard drive on the machine with a clean install and the only similarity is it displays the default desktop until I launch Nautilus, then my background and desktop are displayed with all of the icons. From there on out Fedora has none of these issues. I have used Ubuntu Gnome and XFCE as my only os since 6.0 and have never had this many problems. Both machines would not run the gdm because of Nvidia issues after the upgrade and clean install. I DO NOT want to give up on Ubuntu as I tell all my friends and family to use it.
Recently installed FC15 XFCE on my new hard drive in my laptop, bring it home from work and it wont boot up.
Only changes I made at work were removing the standard package manager, replacing it with yumex, and slightly changing the panels to more suit how I like to work. Other than that just a little browsing the web on work's wireless connection.
Now it will not boot at all. Pressing Ctrl+Alt+2 and the last command I see is "Started SYSV: Late init script for live image.."
Tried booting into the original kernel (rather than the updated one from when I first installed) and the writing is smaller so I can see an earlier message where it failed a process. This is relating to akmod_nvidia but I installed that a couple of days ago and have restarted a few times since without problems before.
"Starting LSB: Builds and install new kmods from akmod package failed, see 'systemct1 status akmods'service' for more details"
I do not even get a command like where I can type with Ctrl+Alt+2 to try running anything.
I tried adding "runlevel=3" to the end of the kernel line in Grub. Is that the correct way to try and force into command line?
I recently installed FC15. When I try to execute a binary file, it shows permission denied message even when I login with the root user through "su -" command. It also give me the same message when I try to run a python script. How can I execute binaries in FC15?
where can i put the request for the [ FC15] build of:
dependencies for po-debconf:
Code: perl(Debconf::AutoSelect) is needed by po-debconf-1.0.16-5.fc15.noarch perl(Debconf::Config) is needed by po-debconf-1.0.16-5.fc15.noarch perl(Debconf::Db) is needed by po-debconf-1.0.16-5.fc15.noarch perl(Debconf::Template::Transient) is needed by po-debconf-1.0.16-5.fc15.noarch
I currently have an FC15 KDE, set up as I like it as a media server, and with squeezeboxserver (for Logitechs media system) running fine. But I'd like to set it up as headless - and it presently needs to have a monitor attached. No keyboard or mouse and it will boot to the login screen (so not a BIOS issue). I need to get it to boot without needing a monitor or requiring a graphical log in. I can administer via SSH and Squeezebox server puts up a webpage. FC15 doesn't use inittab any more, so changing run levels is fraught. I don't want to play with targets without a safety line ...
i just installed fc15 on a virtual machine and since i wanted to learn how to configure it manually, i chose minimal installation. i have referring the deployment guide, now im trying to configure the network interface. what are the steps i have to follow when i install a new network interface manually? no GUI tools are available here because of the minimal installation. im stucked
I have used preupgrade to moved from fc14 to fc15. With fc14 I had my two usb 3.0 ports working. However, with fc15 my usb 3.0 ports are disabled. I have read the instruction at the common fc15 bugs doc and removed the kernel parameter xhci.enable=1 and also erased the file /etc/pm/config.d/xhci. Still the usb 3.0 ports are not working. I am using kernel 22.214.171.124-26.rc1.fc15.x86_64. I cannot use the 126.96.36.199-27.fc15.x86_64 since there no nvidia drivers for it.
How to make plasma KDE activated in FC15 i have ZOTAC NVIDIA GE force 8400 GS graphics card. i have installed it as given in one of thread in this forum. But now how to make KDE windows transparent in FC 15.
I'm using FC15 and Xfce4 desktop, as gnome3 does not work well with my ATI 5770HD graphics card and the proprietary catalyst 11.4 driver.When I start gnome-terminal from xfce, there is some (animation?) and the gnome terminal appears normal size then shrinks horizontally.Is there a way to disable this re-sizing ?
I've just installed FC15 and starting to like Gnome 3. There's something wrong with the keyboard layout: at, number, tilde and anything with [AltGr] does not work (square, cubic, Euro sign, micro sign,...). Language is german but keyboard is british. Where/how can I correct this ?
I don't know if FC15 has the iptable rules like the ones shown below by default or not but I wanted a second opinion about the safety they provide. Why is icmp accepted (INPUT rule 1) from/to all ip? and is it better to remove this rule? When the protocol is all (INPUT rule 2), does it mean from ip layer and above?? and is it required/safe to have this rule? The 3rd rule is to allow tcp-port 22 connections (ssh) to/from all ip. I think this is correctly set and required. The 4th rule in INPUT table rejects pings with the icmp-host-prohibited message; which I don't think is the best solution. Instead it can be set to silently drop icmp packets. Then, the FORWARD table uses reject instead of silent drop for forwarding icmp ping packets.
what do you think about the new rules and their order?
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]
I'm running Gnome on Fedora 15 (currently in failback mode). I've installed the Fedora provided xscreensaver RPMs and ensured that xscreensaver is running when I login (not gnome-screensaver). The problem is, when I try to lock my screen using one of the multiple "lock screen" icons nothing happens. The following line does appear in my ~/.xsession-errors file when the icon is clicked.
** (gnome-panel:3548): WARNING **: Could not ask screensaver to lock: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnkn own: The name org.gnome.ScreenSaver was not provided by any .service files
This line appears regardless of whether or not the gnome-screensaver RPM is installed. I've tried with both gnome-screensaver installed and without it installed with the same result.
Running "xscreensaver-command -lock" from the command line does successfully lock the screen.
Also, the screen lock icons do work when gnome-screensaver is installed and is set as the default screensaver. Anyway, I just upgrade to Fedora 15 recently (I've used all previous version of Fedora) and this is the first time I've run into this problem.
I have just upgraded my Lenovo T61 from FC14 to FC15. Under FC14, I had the system set up to hibernate when the lid was closed. When I opened the lid, the system would automatically come out of hibernation in just a few seconds and I would be back to where I was.
Under FC15, I have also set it to hibernate when the lid closes. When I open the lid, nothing happens until I tap the power button, and then it comes out of hibernation via some kind of reboot: I see the Lenovo splash screen, then the machine beeps and goes into a wakeup routine, which takes much longer than it did under FC14.
Tried on two computers, one laptop, one desktop. Downloaded DVD iso image and burned to DVD. Booted from CD and boot loader appears, and started count down. After the count down finished, nothing happen. Then I downloaded the netinstall image and repeat the procedure but with exact same result, nothing happened after the count down.I tested the download iso by installing it to a VMware VM, and installation completed. I don't even know where to start trouble shooting The only thing common between the two machine is the Nvidia graphic chip.
I've been an ubuntu user for a while, and just started trying out fc15. In nautilus, there used to be an "emblems" side panel, as well as an emblems tab in the file properties window. (emblems being the little overlays you could assign to files or folders, like a tick or a cross or a smiley fdace or whatever). Is there some package I need to install to get this functionality back? Has it never been present in fedora, or is it a change in gnome3 / fc15?
After doing an upgrade from FC14 to FC15, I then updated the packages by doing: yum update yum yum clean all yum --releasever=15 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync I then get the following voluminous list of issues (148 pre-existing rpmdb problems). I've done an rpm --rebuilddb but no help.
Running rpm_check_debug ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve: libclutter-gtk-0.10.so.0()(64bit) is needed by gthumb-2.12.3-2.fc15.x86_64 Please report this error in [URL]

Well, it appears that downloading and installing libclutter-gtk-0.10.so.0 seemed to fix all the subsequent yum error messages, and I was able to install all the packages.
I have dahdi installed. And a wildcard card: dahdi_hardware pci:0000:04:07.0 wcfxo-1057:5608 Wildcard X100P modprobe dahdi returns: "FATAL: Module dahdi not found." and dahdi_genconf finds no spans.
I have commented out the following line in /etc/modprobe.d/dahdi.blacklist.conf: "#blacklist wcfxo", which I believe corresponds to the appropriate module. However modprobe wcfxo indiates that module is not found. I have an up to date fc15 installation.
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?
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 ?
