@fcomida Well from my point of view the Gnome apps are buggy. How are they even determining they should run in Wayland?

I say the same thing I say on StackOverflow. Old questions are equal to new ones. And if you don't want them touched then fix it technically. Why does this site still show stuff from 2012 if it isn't considered relevant.

2017-10-26 18:31:14 -0600 answered a question shutdown and SIGTERM question

systemd runs the "stop" action on each unit as it shuts down. This is usually sending it SIGTERM and waiting for it to exit. It can be customized for each unit. If a unit does not shut down it waits for a timeout and then does SIGKILL which stops the process no matter what.

2017-10-26 18:26:14 -0600 asked a question How can I always use headphones?

Fedora 25, 26, and 27 pop up and ask if I want to use headphones or a headset when I plug in my headphones. I much preferred the older behavior where it was assumed that if headphones were plugged in, you wanted to use headphones.

Another failure of the new behavior is that it sometimes decides to use the laptop speakers without ever asking me if I want headphones, sometimes causing me to embarrassingly blast the office with whatever happens to play.

How can I adjust Pulseaudio on Fedora to always use headphones when plugged in?

This is Intel HDA hardware and a 3.5mm audio jack.

I did try that but I really want the eject button. I may try a shell extension.

2015-09-29 11:38:15 -0600 asked a question How can I put removable disks back in the File Manager sidebar?

I noticed that in Gnome 3.18 in Fedora 23 that the removable disks like my USB backup drive no longer appear in the sidebar when I plug it in.

It does still automount and if I click on Other Locations the drive shows up. But I want it obviously available, not hidden off in a corner somewhere.

How can I put it back in the sidebar with the eject icon and all that?

2015-04-08 19:26:57 -0600 answered a question Desktop user security

Can't say for sure but I suspect that the user has followed some bad advice and is running xhost +. If you do that, it turns off all access control for the X session and allows absolutely anyone to connect to it.

Or, just guessing since you didn't give a lot of detail, the user's $HOME/.Xauthority file is world-readable. Or the user intentionally used the xauth program to grant access to the SSH user. Or the X server is somehow getting started with the -ac option. Doubtful. I don't even know how you convince gdm to change X's launch options.

2015-04-08 18:55:08 -0600 answered a question Can Fedora 21 run two monitors on dimension 4700

This is a question of two parts.

Can Fedora 21 run two monitors? Yes it can. (At least, when my Intel driver doesn't crash when I plug in an external monitor).

I used to run a much older version (probably Red Hat 8.0 come to think of it) on a PC with some kind of Matrox (G200?) AGP and a S3 PCI card and dual CRTs. I had to hand edit the Xorg configuration files but it did work quite well after that. I don't believe that Xorg will have lost that functionality although I guess it could have happened.

I think that the odds of someone else having exactly your hardware and being able to tell you "Yes it works." is very low. Especially since you did not specify the PCI controller type.

I would say try it and find out. If it does not work automatically you will probably want to read the Xorg log file output carefully. Then depending on the error messages you might try disabling the kernel's DRI or KMS modules or writing configuration files for Xorg for your hardware.
