2016-07-23 02:34:51 -0600 asked a question Can I mount Windows at startup?

Running Fedora 24. Without any configuration, my dual boot Windows 10 partition shows up in Nautilus and will mount and load fine once I enter the root password. However, I'm really trying to streamline the dual boot and it would be nice if I could somehow set it up to mount every time I boot so I don't have to enter another password. Any way this is possible?

2015-12-27 02:02:42 -0600 commented question Network card not detected

Is there a way to ensure the module is loaded, or to force it?

NetworkManager-wifi was already installed

What did you expect to see? Laptop speakers, aux connection, etc? Also ensure that pulseaudio is installed sudo dnf list pulseaudio to be safe.

Did not seem to have an effect. However, the network card is detected again. Here is the relevant information from lspci -v:

02:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros Device 0042 (rev 30)
    Subsystem: Lenovo Device 4035
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 128
    Memory at a1000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2M]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: ath10k_pci
    Kernel modules: ath10k_pci

A driver appears to exist. Is it possible to get it to work somehow?

Okay, kind of a long question because there are weird circumstances: I got a very new laptop and promptly installed fedora 23 workstation on it, and right away I noticed that the network manager didn't list any WiFi options, and that there was something going on with the display settings (no brightness controls, etc) but i was mostly focused on getting WiFi working, so after some research I updated the kernel (via ). This solved all my display issues, but I still had no Wi-Fi, so I tried find any solution other than buying an external adapter. I ended up using lspci and lspci -v multiple times; I didn't get anywhere but I noticed that there was a driver in use for my network controller, which was in fact detected. That was a day or two ago, and I haven't used fedora since then, but I just went back to see if I could get the card working since there seemed to be a driver. Now, it isn't detected at all by lspci. I remember it was a Qualcomm Atheros device 0042 thanks to my Google history. Any idea what happened or things to try? I can use an Ethernet connection if necessary.

2015-04-02 01:12:51 -0600 asked a question Returning from a suspend takes 2 tries

When I close my laptop lid then later re-open it, I of course have to enter my password to return to the desktop. However, every time I try this, I enter my password and the 'loading' circle animation thing appears and goes on infinitely, unless I hit cancel and then re-enter the password. This would be a pretty minor annoyance, but it does this every time without fail. Is there any way I can get it to just work the first time? Also, I don't know if this is related, but on YouTube I can't use the search box unless I reload the page in Chrome. Similar issue, but seemingly unrelated.

After a lot of File System exploring, I discovered the dm was lightdm. The backgrounds are stored in /usr/share/backgrounds

2015-01-17 17:26:43 -0600 edited question How to change the login screen in Cinnamon?

Hi, I have just installed Fedora 21 from the server edition netinstall with Cinnamon as my sole DE and I really like it. The one thing that annoys me is that I can't figure out how to change the login screen background from the default clouds wallpaper that I don't really enjoy. I'm pretty sure the DM is GDM but I'm not positive, and none of the potential solutions I saw applied to my setup. Any help, or anyone at least know where the login manager settings are stored so I could look at them?
