2018-01-03 03:56:54 -0600 asked a question How to make UI controlls look smaller on 1366 X 768 resolution?

I'm using Fedora 27, 64-bit with gnome, on a laptop with a 1366 X 768 monitor. The problem that I face is that windows look too big! People I've asked on IRC said that it looks just fine. But to give a example: Netbeans IDE on Windows, I can see 31 lines without scrolling, on Fedora I can only see 20+. I've already tried to change scaling on gnome-tweek-tool, but that won't help. It's not about the windows it's about the buttons, labels. To give other examples: LibreOffice's font selector is huge, Eclipes 'quick access' is also big. my system

2017-10-09 09:06:46 -0600 answered a question Can't play mp4/h264 video on Fedora 26 (firefox)

You need to add the RPMFusion to your repositories and install the ffmpeg package. I think the article you point out is kind of deprecated, the idea is that Firefox changed some things in regard to how it handles codecs and ffmpeg is compatible with it.

2017-10-09 07:02:50 -0600 asked a question Are Fedora packages build automatically?

I see that Tomcat9 is not in the official Fedora 26 repositories and I was wondering, are these packages build manually by some maintainers, or is there a automated process?

2016-10-20 12:47:32 -0600 commented question Can Fedora handle two GPUs?

Yeah it shows the one from intel, so should I understand that nVidia card is totally inactive? Not even consuming power?

2016-10-20 03:49:11 -0600 asked a question Can Fedora handle two GPUs?

My laptop (Acer Aspire E5-573g) has both the integrated graphics card from Intel (Intel HD Graphics 520) and a dedicated one from nVidia (Geforce 940M). If I install Fedora 24 on my machine, will it know by default to handle both graphics cards, or do I have to install some proprietary drivers? Also, if I have too install them, which ones? Should I install the ones from nVidia, Intel, or both?

2016-02-01 13:30:46 -0600 marked best answer Is is helpful if I install Fedora 21 alpha?

Fedora 21 is in the alpha state right now, I'm not a critical mission 900.000.000$ enterprise to lose anything valuable and I would like to test it. My question is if I install Fedora 21 as my main system, will it be helpful for the developers to find bugs and improve it?

2015-12-19 05:22:18 -0600 asked a question How do software vendors choose the packaging method?

.NET core is there for a while, but not rpm packages. My question is a littler more complex, rather that just: Why are there just .deb packages for .NET core, it seems to be a very strange problem in general: Some apps (sort of a enterprise like) such as Autodesk Maya, Oracle Java.. only offer RedHat/Fedora packages and no debs, while others like Opera, .NET core only offers .deb packages. Any reason for these "orientation"? Why not just provide both?

I was just wondering if rpmfusion works on red hat 7...

2015-11-30 05:01:38 -0600 commented answer Is it safe to use Fedy, postinstalerf or third party helpers?

Yeah well I looked it up, Fedy downloads some software from third party repos. So for instance Java could be downloaded directly from Oracle, that even offers a packaged rpm. But other software not, and so Fedy looks up so that those malicious commands are no in there. Look Fedy is open source and safe, but it's third party links may not be safe, legal.... That is why I won't recomand Fedy, but the developer did a good job!

2015-10-02 12:19:38 -0600 marked best answer VirtualBox not working on Fedora 20

Hi, I know this question has been asked but I still can't get VirtualBox to work on my machine. I have a Acer Aspire V5-552G with UEFI and Secure Boot. Ihave installed VirtualBox from the official repository but when I want to launch a vm I get the following error message:

Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing

'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

as root. If it is available in your distribution, you should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.

I have installed kerne-devel, and DKMS, but still nothig. By running sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup I get the message:

sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup 
Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules                         [  OK  ]
Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules            [  OK  ]
Trying to register the VirtualBox kernel modules using DKMS[  OK  ]
Starting VirtualBox kernel modules                         [FAILED]
  (modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why)

And finally by running dmesg I get:

[ 3637.632521] capability: warning: `VirtualBox' uses 32-bit capabilities (legacy support in use)
