Fedora 15 Screenshots


Recommended Posts

Here's my new Desktop with Fedora15. Gnome3. Kind reminds me a bit of mac osx.

What do you think? I like fedora better as a desktop then centos, but I still

need to get used to the new look of gnome.

Looking great! Is that the stock Gnome in the new Fedora?

I meant just the version of Gnome that comes with Fedora 15, with no modifications. Apparently, it is! Looking great -- I might have to give Fedora a play again if I can find some time. Also trying to schedule in an upgrade of my desktop machine to either the new Linux Mint 11 or Ubuntu 11.04, you see! :)

Yeah Fedora looks pretty nice and works good. But Just switched back to Debian because I do like stability

and I like it that they only release a new version every 2 years. With fedora and ubuntu having an upgrade

every 6 months I find annoying cuz I tend to upgrade every new release when it's not even necesarry to.

You can't use normal gnome on f15.but I tried installing f15 on my laptop and grahics card wouldn't support it so you can use fallback mode. looks kind more like normal gnome. You can also activate fallback mode manually. Check the articles below.

 

check this forum post and this article

 

Although I switched back to Debian now :)

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

You can always try running it virtually with virtualbox. I ran virtually F15 first, and because virtualbox can't handle the normal F15 graphics it automatically switch to

fallback mode. Then when it does that you can see how you like fallback mode. Just an idea :)

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 !

Sorry I never work with shortcuts, I don't like messy desktops :P I only work with menu's.

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 found a solution for your problem here

 

That's a while if you've been upgrading every time smile.gif I always do a fresh install tongue.gif

But I guess upgrading to a new fedora version is better to do since fedora comes

with a new version every 6 months I think?While Debian has a new version every two

years smile.gif

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

ok upgrade to F16 and now the gnome bar has returned at the top of FireFox and all apps, do you know if there's a fix for that also ?

Couldn't find anything on it. But you could try moving the gnome panel to the bottom and then move it back up and see what happens? And if that doesn't work, remove gnome and reinstall gnome.
