2016-02-25 07:45:44 -0600 commented question Problem with installing Fedora

you mite need to verify if the downloaded iso is completed file. or wondering how you are creating ISO bootable media to USB. (I assume you are using LiveUSB Creator.)... you mite also need to check UEFI and legacy mode. I am just throwing out all the possibilities with booting issue from USB.

that is what it is supposed to do, but it somehow just keeps pointing to Windows bootloader. That doesn't even bother fedora's bootloader file. (If Windows wasn't installed before Fedora, Fedora grub conf wouldn't include windows bootloader file.) That is why I needed to rename the actual file name so that it solved the problem. I am not sure Toneks has the same issue as mine but copying and renaming really resolved my case.

I think this links is pretty much the same solution as I did.

I problly can give some help. (I was struggling exact the same thing as your situation.) My bios always looking up /EFT/Microsoft/boot/bootmgfw.efi. no matter what I setup any extra thing. If I manually point to fedora bootloader, my laptop fails to boot up. it simply did not boot or it sometimes force to boot to Windows 10 still. so here is what I did.

I renamed shimx64.efi to bootmgfw.efi (of course I backed up all of windows bootloader files, just in case something fails) anyways, after I installed fedora through EFI, I see the file structor as /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/ 1. copied all of files to /boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/boot/ 2. rename bootmgfw.efi to bootmgfw_w10.efi under /boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/boot/ 3. rename shimx64.efi to bootmgfw.efi 4. reboot --> this should boot fedora bootloader * don't forget to disable secure boot (this will failed to boot) after booting to fedora, you need a couple of more things to modify because the windows bootloader filename is changed. on Fedora, open terminal and open a file where grub.cfg is it should be the same place where the files were copied to /boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/grub.cfg in the file, you need to replace bootmgfw.efi to bootmgfw_w10.efi (just like the name I changed earlier) that's it. now you should be able to boot Windows again now.

I am not sure this is the case you are having but try it if you cannot boot to fedora from your bios. I think this should work as far as your bios doesn't give you much options to boot something else.

hope this helps!

@Anshu36, can you at least get to Fedora? you probably want to boot as LIVE from usb or disc and reinstall grub2

if you still do not find anything on System Monitor App, wouldn't it be possible that hardware compatibility issue? especially if it is installed fresh.

How did you get it working with gestures? as Fedora 23 default drivers, mine works with tapping, dragging, scrolling but none of gestures work. did you install some third party software/driver?

2016-02-12 12:35:57 -0600 asked a question Bluetooth Mouse on Fedora 23

Hi there,

After my bluetooth mouse is connected, I have to manually set xinput property 1 from 0 for natural scrolling. Once I set that property, it works as I expect, however, after I am back from away for sometime, all the settings get defaulted. (My laptop did not go to sleep mode.. just I was away like 20-30 mins. Of course this also happens from resume from sleep or restarts.) I think it somehow, it looses the settings I've made previously. I am not sure how I can set this as permanently so I do not need to set this up every time I use my laptop. I also tried to set the prop of default value but it complaints that I cannot set that value.

FYI, I am pretty new on Linux (Fedora). I've been trying to learn and get used to for 6 months so far and love it!

Please someone give me an advice or solution. (I hope I don't need to write a code to trigger to override my current settings.. :.()

-- I should be more specific though, I set the properties with 'xinput set-prop {id} {prop} {value}' --

Thank you.
