I am really happy with my Slackware installation but I encountered a problem using Gimp, I would like to know if it's just me or really the problem can be reproduced by others, here is my problem:
When I open an image or create new one if a click on the rulers and drag the mouse to create a new guide the mouse clicks seems to doesn't work, I cannot move any window but if I choose the toolbox window and press shortcut keys they select the tools, when I change to another workspace and turn back to the gimp's workspace everything works again but I couldn't create a new guide.
I am using XFCE as desktop and the proprietary NVIDIA drivers (just in case it may be a problem). The Gimp error console doesn't show anything.
So I puts my shinny new F12 install on my new computer. It's a little climb for me but for the most part easier then some of the other F's that I have tried to install.
One problem I have right now is my inkscape crashes as soon as I try to put some text on a page. I tried the automatic bug report thingy but it complained about me not having a log in. inksacpe is really becoming a very important application for me, I have been trying to shy away from the Windows programs I have been using.
I must say, F12 seems to really be advancing the fedora project into a nice desktop system.
I recently upgraded from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14 and noticed something strange when I used Yum to install GNote and Inkscape. Yum installed the Fedora 14 version of the programs, but installed some dependencies that were actually from Fedora 12 and 13. The output below shows what packages were installed.
==================================================================================================== =================================================================== Package Arch Version Repository Size
When I ran the yum command to list all of the packages for the dependencies in question, it only listed the version for Fedora 12 or 13. Is there something wrong with one of my repositories or do these Fedora 14 programs actually use packages from previous versions of Fedora?
When I first started using Fedora 10 I had a bit of a play with the "Leave Message" button that appears when you lock the screen. After you type the message and click save, the next time the user logged in the messages would pop up.
Ever since Fedora 12, when I leave a test message, after I log in nothing pops up. This happens on two different computers so I don't think its an obscure hardware problem.
After the completely new installation of Fedora 15 the letters are ugly in comparison with FC 14, no matter which font. It doesn't help to set anti-aliasing manually. The edges of the letters leave blurring.
I would like to ask those with more experiences when re-installing M$ Vista crap.I do not want to reinstall my working Fedora 11. Do I have to backup my linux partitions? How do I resurrect my linux bootloader then? With safe mode with Fedora DVD, right? Are there any differences between Windows 7 dual boot with Fedora 11?
Is there a way to alter the default position that windows open such that if I have an application that I want to open (for example) with the lower right corner in the lower right corner of the screen or in the middle of the screen, etc, this can be done automatically? In KDE it can be done by right clicking and adjusting application properties. I don't see how to do that in Gnome. I'm using Fedora 13 with Gnome.
Im running fedora 13 in my machine, where i installed mac4lin theme and after that all the window's close, maximize, minimize buttons changed their position from right hand corner to left end corner. I ve attached the snapshot a window. I cant restore it back.
I'm writing some code to speed up some code writing, basically it produces some code I use in every project. I produce the outputs with fstream filestr;, open a file and write to some data to it. However some code has quote marks that I need to output, however I can't use quote marks. EG: filestr<<"#include "Header.h""<<endl;I get round this with some awful filestr.put ('"');However I'm sure there must be a straight forward way to do this. Can anyone advise?
my new system is redhat enterprise 5, i have changed 2 keyboard and used 2 input(fcitx and scim), the same question is that the system can not receive quotation marks,i can not use quotaion key input double quotation marks or single, badly.
In the rpm manual, Print 50 hash marks as the package archive is unpacked. Use with -v|--verbose for a nicer display. But actually, there're not enough hash marks when I'm installing a package. About 44 hash marks there...Well, I just want to know where the `50 hash marks' are.
I've just installed FC12 on my nettop and I've notice that when I go to "system -> network" the hostname is "Fedora001". When I ping its IP I get "new-host.home". What did I do or didn't do? How do I correct this? Do I need to change it in the "hostname" file?Also, can I leave "domain" field blank?
I have created a very simple spreadsheet - using gnumeric - with small numbers and simple formulas - the numbers fit easily inside their cells - the formatting all seems in order BEFORE I try to print. When I set up the spreadsheet for printing - and "print preview" the document, I see hash marks in place of numbers in a majority of the cells. When I print the document, the hash marks are printed, in place of the numbers. When I view the document under normal circumstances, for editing - the hash marks are not present. All seems well. I cannot print the spreadsheet without the hash marks (#####) appearing!
I tried to move a file from my desktop to another folder; moving it was not allowed, for some reason. Neither was opening it and saving a new copy in the target folder. Would that be because the filename contains double (") quotation marks? Are they not allowed? The filename is Edit of Bob's "Lady Liberty" Article.doc. [Filename not enclosed in quotation marks here, to avoid confusion.]I just changed the double quotation marks to single quotation marks; that solved everything.
I want to put a string, such as the one found in the image, into an array that will later be chopped into individual words and put into another array of individual words found in the initial string. (or, perhaps, I would be able to do that initially, but for now, that is the goal)My question is, how can I do that without using quotation marks?
I want to add double quotation marks to contents of an column ,the column contains over 7000 cells with content already,so it would be heavy task to add "double quotation marks"one by one.Is there any way to do that quickly on Libre office?
I'm running 12, not 11. I don't know why I had 11 in my head. Can this be moved BACK from EOL? If not, I'll start a new thread. Sorry. My wife and I have matching HP EliteBook 8730w "mobile workstations" (laptops that need a donkey to move them). We also have matching LG second screens. Unfortunately, we have matching mouse pointer issues too, as you might expect.
99% of the time we work away without issue. 1% of the time, Fedora suddenly stops showing the mouse pointer in the separate LG screen. The pointer is there, you can use it (if you can guess where the hell it is!) but you can't see it. Only a reboot seems to solve the problem.
It's worth noting xorg.conf is not being used. It's an nVidia card in these laptops and I tried the latest drivers from them - they totally wiped out the display, I mean total FAIL, unusable. Had to boot up in without GNOME, run level 3, to fix it. After much messing around, I think I used the FirstAidKit plugin for xserver to repair things. Since then there is no xorg.conf:
If I restore *any* xorg.conf file it all goes wrong again, so I'm guessing there are either some defaults at play or there's another system currently managing my display. Either way, restoring/editing xorg.conf won't help me with the current set-up.
Running Fedora 14, and when I wake the computer after not using it for a few hours I get a black screen with only the mouse pointer visible. This can sometimes be for a minute or up to 5 or 10 minutes, I'm not quite sure what the issue is. I have the screen saver set to blank screen, and I have the computer set to never go into sleep mode, however the display turns off. I just tested it out with the screen saver only activated and it wakes fine, and then set it to turn the display off after 5 minutes, and it wakes up fine if I try then. The issue is when it has been idle for the night or longer. I am running this machine through a KVM, so I'm not sure if that may have something to do with it. You can see from the output here that the mouse seems to be getting discovered all over every time I switch back to this machine.
This isn't a major issue, but it is very annoying if I want to switch over to this machine to get a few things done and switch back. Also, if I am waiting at the blank screen with the mouse, I can still press ctrl + F2 to access the terminal immediately, so the computer is functional but the GUI seems to be delayed in coming back.
When I boot from my new Fedora15 LiveCD I get this on startup:
Code: Pointer to BIT loadval table invalid. Everything appears to be working pretty normally other than the fact that the error came up on the screen. Is this going to be a major problem? Is there some kind of fix or patch that I can apply?
