  1. yeah but if no one is using it... heh, well i am at least !
  2. well after using it for a week now i like it, it took some getting used to and some things still annoy me greatly but i'll list what i like/dislike below likes * feels new and exciting * i like the way the 'bottom bar' fades in and out * messages pop up on the bottom bar * the black theme is clean looking * pretty responsive and customisable once you download some apps and make some changes dislikes * sometimes when i click on activites nothing happens * why oh why oh why have the removed minimize and close buttons, daft, i don't care if they think minimize is not importan
  3. well it seems that F10 and ALT+F10 makes life better with regards to my windows,
  4. 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 ????
  5. 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 go
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. looks good but if you have more money go for a better camera, bigger screen the htc sensation is pretty neat
  9. 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 ?
  10. 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-
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. how do i find my old 'shortcuts' that i had on my old Gnome desktop ? are they gone forever or ?
  15. 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 !
  16. good point, i'll check it out virtually first ! cheers niall
  17. 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
  18. i'm still on fedora 14, but might switch soon to f15 can i still use normal gnome in f15 ?
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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 ?
