Fedora :: Add/remove Software In Fedora15/gnome3 Can Not Search?
Jul 7, 2011
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

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?
I'm trying to install parcelite. However I'm having trouble. When I search for parcelite in the add/remove nothing shows. So that means I need the repository right? Well I can't find the repository.I went here [URL].. I want to install this but I don't know how. Since the only way I know how to install things is through add/remove and yum install in terminal.
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.
i guess this is an installation issue as i am newish to Linux and got a F14 laptop from a used/refurb store... Anyway it seem i have difficulty with getting GTK running or maybe it is WGET...?
i did manage to install apt-get and was able to run synaptics ... but now whenever i try to run synaptics it flashes the interface and crashes. i tried apt-get search wget and it says invalid operation search. i tried apt cache wget and get a crash box in the upper right corner... i tried apt-get gtk+extra-2.1.2-4.fc14 and it says invalid operation gtk...
All of which is frustrating my attempts to get the GTK interface to J working. Their script uses WGET which i also cannot get.
Recently one of the worm is spread in our network & so many unwated files are getting copied on our ubuntu file server like comment.htt, desktop.ini, winfile.exe Now we have clean that worm from our network but few files are remained on ubuntu server as well as in backup folders and i want to search those files and delete it.
how to remove the 'Search and sort section' entirely from the GUI? I would like to only have the cover view in that whole area with just the library size and the buttons on top. I know you can set the cover view to open in a separate window, but then I have to resize the cover view window to cover that whole area every time I start calibre.
I have a lot of files in the server with name like checkfile.jsp and in the file has two or three lines with an ip address xxx.xxx.xxx in it. I wish to know if there any command to grep for the i p address and remove itin file but keep the " ", eg "xxx.xxx.xxx"
I installed fedora 15 ,i went for install tools and successfully mount virtual drive, but after that i cant extract ****.tar.gz file. No. of errors arises like "can't success bcoz previous error" Or read only file system. I tried to change file permission but cant get result.I searched no. articles on net and follow same procedure ,but not succeed .Becoz of this i cant see fullscreen window of fedora
I found that "ask search engine" installed as default web search engine instead of google in firefox. Now it's impossible to go back to google search engine as "ask" always remains as default search and no other search engins are shown in the firefox list.Any idea about how to get rid of "ask"? I managed to install another "unofficial google" search plugin but if i click on restore default search engine "ask" will be restored.
This may seem like an oddball question, but I ask because I don't know. When working with Fedora 15, which parts of what I see on screen are actually Fedora, and which parts of Gnome 3? I'm trying to understand where the separation lies between the OS and the shell, and I'm not quite clear when I'm "doing things" if I'm using a feature of Fedora, or Gnome 3. I know when I'm in a terminal window, that's the shell/Gnome3. But what else that I do is actually the shell, and not Fedora?
F15 running on my Dell Latitude 505 laptop. During installation (last week) I got "Gnome3 not fully supported - using fallback mode". I found out later that my Intel 855 video doesn't support 3D, which Gnome3 requires.
System seems to run fine and boots into fallback video. But I'd sure like to have access to my "desktop" so I can drag and drop folders, etc. there. Currently I now have to open the Desktop folder, and then drag and drop, etc. And without an "active" desktop screen, added devices (external drives, cameras, etc.) don't show up unless I open the Desktop folder. Is there an alternative to Gnome3 I can install? I assume without the need for 3D which my Intel video 855 doesn't support.
If there's an alternative or two, could someone point me to exactly how to install them? If there's a more appropriate forum here for this request,
has anyone tried to use Mikogo under Fedora 15 with Gnome 3, i have tried with the instructions on the site but nothing happens, it might be because the app is not gnome 3 ready or something I am missing.[URL].. the way it is supposed to work, you just download it and run it like blender.. and it should start a task bar app (the reason why i think it does nothing) and then you can use it..
After upgrading to F15 I noticed that Alt+Tab behaves now differently. For example, if I have several terminal windows open, I can't cycle through all of them by just pressing Alt+Tab repeatedly. Now the system just displays one terminal icon and icons for each terminal window, but if I keep pressing Tab (Alt being down all the time), it does not switch the window.
is there any rainmeter like software for f15 gnome3?in short: i want live rss feeds right on desktop. is there a way?rainmeter is a lightweight software in windows in which widgets like rss feed, gmail inbox, fb notifications, system info, hdd partitions, music player, weather, app launcher etc can be customized on custom sidebar panels/bars.
I've recently decided to switch from KDE 4.6 to Gnome 3. I've always been a KDE user, since version 2, really. But I happen to really like the new look of Gnome. To me it looks more professional somehow. Very little in terms of distractions.On both my laptop and my desktop, I have installed the Gnome 3 packages through Packagekit and on both machines it runs nice and smooth. There is one difference, though. On the desktop machine, when I lock the screen, it goes to black instantly. On the laptop, it fades to black. I really like the look of the fading animation and I'd like the desktop machine to do the same, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to do it.
The difference between both machines is that the laptop has an Intel graphics card whereas the desktop machine has an Nvidia 6800 GT, with the proprietary driver running. I followed Leigh's excellent guide to install that driver and it works like a charm. I do have desktop effects in KDE 4, so I know the driver is installed and running. I also am able to run hardware accelerated games in Wine without a problem.Being new to Gnome, especially Gnome 3, I have no idea where to look for these kinds of special effects. The System Settings program seems sort of Spartan and the gconf-editor doesn't show me anything that I can relate to this fading effect.
I am running Fedora 15 and Gnome 3, most of which I like and is working. However I can't seem to add a custom launcher or if I install a application and the .desktop file is created and placed in ~/.local/share/applications the application is not appearing in the search for that application. How do I add a custom application to the list of applications installed?
I have yet another minor source of confusion in GNOME3... Imagine this: you have opened several terminal windows which cover most of your desktop, and a Firefox browser window. In Firefox you have an image which contains some data that you must type to one of the terminal windows. Since the data is in an image (not as a text), you can't use cut & paste to transfer it from Firefox to terminal.
In GNOME2 (and Windows), you can interleave the Firefox window and the terminal window so that the terminal window is on top of the Firefox window. You can place the terminal window so that it does not cover that part of the Firefox window which contains the data that you must type to the terminal window.
But in GNOME3, if I activate the terminal window, all open terminal windows are shown on top the Firefox window. In order to see the Firefox window again, I have to minimize or move those terminal windows which cover the part which I want to see while typing into the one terminal window. I think this is clumsy. Is there any way to switch back to the GNOME2 behavior which allows interleaving windows from different applications?
