  1. well it seems that F10 and ALT+F10 makes life better with regards to my windows,
  2. ok the craziness in firefox was some java script in gmail, closed that tab and opened it again, little bit better but whats annoying me now is the 'start' menu/gnome menu currently in order to see my screen it's on autohide, ie: double clicking on it seems to allow it to autohide, and now it pops up and down as i go near it, trying to double click on it again to keep it there so i don't get dizzy seems hit and miss yup it's going to take some time to get used to this... not being able to easily minimize apps or resize them is infuriating, what were they thinking ????
  3. thanks, i changed that file and it seems to be better now, but i've got to say i preferred the simplicity and clarity of gnome 2.x, whoever came up with the main ideas of gnome3 didn't think it through properly in my humble opinion, i shouldnt have to hack a text file and use gnome-tweak-tool to get it to look good/functional, and i don't know if it's related but now my cpu is going full whack so my laptop is hotter than it was before oh my god look at the cpu usage !! is it firefox ??? i'll stick with this for a while but i don't know if i'll adjust to it or revert back to the good old ways.... gnome3 reminds me a lot of the radical changes in kde 4, and i stuck with gnome 2.x just because of that craziness in kde4 cheers niall
  4. sure i can change that setting, the only reason it's set is thats where the spammers targetted but i'll turn it off for now and watch
  5. i've only used it for one day so a bit early to jump to conclusions yet, i do like it but as always with new ways of doing things it will get some getting used to, if i could remove the title bars (why are they needed) then i'd be very happy as currently they are taking up lots of space
  6. looks good but if you have more money go for a better camera, bigger screen the htc sensation is pretty neat
  7. looks like the gnome i had yesterday so why do you use Debian ? I have used apt-get for quite a few years back when redhat and fedora hadnt got yum working, and it seemed ok, but i prefer an rpm installation any day, like centos/fedora/rh is it the slow lifecycle change ? that much i can understand, then why not try centos ?
  8. backup your data first then... login as root and do a yum -y update, that tells fedora to update itself then get a few necessary F15 rpm's from the nearest mirror (i chose a swedish mirror as i live in sweden) wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/15/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-15-1.noarch.rpm wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/15/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-notes-15.0.0-1.fc15.noarch.rpm wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/15/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-rawhide-15-1.noarch.rpm and then install them rpm -Uvh fedora-release-notes-15.0.0-1.fc15.noarch.rpm fedora-release-15-1.noarch.rpm fedora-release-rawhide-15-1.noarch.rpm then clean the yum data yum clean all and update yum update if you get any conflicts reported, then remove the package like so yum remove gnome-applet-vm the install will take some time, take a break, once done, check the version and then reboot reboot
  9. ok that was much better thanks, but now when I rdesktop to my remote windows server, I can see a very big Gnome title bar at the top of my screen and i can't scroll it up or move it, your probably wondering why this is an issue, well my laptops resolution is 1200x800 so i cannot see a normal desktop without scrolling, and in F14 i solved it by minimizing the top and bottom gnome bars when remoting to those boxes, now i'm much nearer but still i have the top title bar of the rdesktop session, if i could hide or resize that it would be fantastic
  10. ok gnome-tweak-tool was very helpful, my icons etc are back on the screen, now if i can find out how to 'hide' the gnome bar on the top of the screen (i used to be able to scroll it left or right in F14, any ideas on that? here's my desktop now i've been upgrading each version of fedora on this laptop since F11
  11. backup yep, now where did i store it ? heh ok i'll play with it this evening and report back in thanks for the help cheers niall
  12. how do i find my old 'shortcuts' that i had on my old Gnome desktop ? are they gone forever or ?
  13. ok i bit the bullet and coulndt wait any longer, i used this guide here to go from F14 to f15 ! wow the new F15 is awesome and will definetly take time to get used to, I'm finding the new 'windows' harder to navigate as things like minimize/maximize arn't anywhere to be seen i'll come back to this later today when i come back from work !
  14. good point, i'll check it out virtually first ! cheers niall
  15. hmmm that's a bit of a concern, i really do like the normal gnome, i've been using it for years and its always looked the same (more or less) I'll see if i'm feeling adventurous in the future and report back, meanwhile sticking with F14
  16. i'm still on fedora 14, but might switch soon to f15 can i still use normal gnome in f15 ?
  17. actually upgraded the same laptop from Fedora 13 today to Fedora 14, worked fine, took some time but worked just fine, running F14 now cheers niall
  18. Wanted: Linux News poster, if you can post news, links and info about anything linux related that is happening now, today, this week, then let me know, I'd like the news section to remain current, and it needs a dedicated person to do that, cheers niall
  19. I'm in the process of upgrading the webserver backup server (making it as up to date as the server in amsterdam) and got an error installng the json component, reason why ? because the http://pecl.php.net/ site is down... any workaround ? or must I wait until it's back up again ?
  20. i've updated the forums to 3.1.4

      Long time no see.. How are you?

  21. anyweb

    File handling in linux

    how about gedit or kwrite ?
  22. that was probably your temp linux directory, you can boot from your xp cd and do a recovery to restore the xp boot loader, or vice versa for Fedora (reinstall fedora, should fix it)
  23. Fedora 14 Evolves Leading-Edge Open Source Technologies in Free Distribution The Future of Open Source Emerges in Fedora With Compelling Features for Developers, System Administrators and Open Source Enthusiasts RALEIGH, NC - Nov. 2, 2010 - The Fedora Project, a Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT) sponsored and community-supported open source collaboration, today announced the availability of Fedora 14, the latest version of its free open source operating system distribution. The Fedora Projects leads the advancement of free and open source software with a new distribution released approximately every six months. Fedora 14 includes several new features for developers, system administrators and open source enthusiasts including: Framework software for Spice, a rapidly advancing infrastructure for desktop virtualization New debugging features for developers, such as support for dynamic/unplanned memory usage tracking and faster launch thanks to pre-generated indexes Powerful remote and out-of-band management capabilities with Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) support Updated tech preview of the GNOME shell environment, part of the upcoming GNOME 3.0 release A subset of new and innovative software from the MeeGo™ community for an enhanced experience on netbooks and small devices OpenSCAP, an open-source framework for the Security Content Automation Protocol, which provides a framework and approach to maintaining system security backed by NIST standards Support for emergent programming languages like D, and refreshed versions of popular languages such as Python 2.7, Erlang R14, and the Rakudo Star implementation of Perl 6 A complete list of Fedora 14 features is available on the Fedora community's release announcement. Watch the Fedora 14 release video here to learn more about new features and the Fedora community. Premiering alongside Fedora 14 is a new re-design of Fedora's community-supported website, fedoraproject.org. The new site is a culmination of work completed within multiple areas of the Fedora community including the Design, Websites, Marketing, Translation and Infrastructure teams. The new website showcases the capabilities Fedora offers for many different types of users, including developers, designers, general productivity users and more. It was designed and created entirely using free and open source software that is available in the Fedora repository, and maintained and translated by a team of contributors, collaborating from around the world. Fedora is used by millions of people globally, with each release of Fedora accumulating several million Internet (IP) addresses checking in for updates. Some systems and users stay on a single release of Fedora because of its stability and functionality, while some upgrade when new releases become available. The total of unique IP addresses across Fedora releases since tracking was initiated at Fedora 7 is more than 25.5 million addresses. Information about Fedora's statistics and collection methodology is open and transparent to the public on the following wiki: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Statistics. The Fedora Project's record of open, transparent collaboration with the community continues to attract participants, with more than 22,000 currently registered contributors. The global Fedora community also continues to grow with around 700 Fedora Ambassadors. These are members of the Fedora community who spend time as volunteers representing the Fedora Project at community and trade events, and speaking to public and private institutions about Fedora and free and open source software.
