hi, I am a big fanatic of linux OS. I wanted to completely shift over to linux based OS and installed fedora but softwares that i frequently require like the open office, gXine are not responding even after being installed. When I click on those I get a loading cursor but after few seconds it goes off without opening up any window. I cannot open any presentations too. Can anyone help me? I really want to learn more and stick up with linux based systems.

Hi, which Fedora image have you installed? Which CPU/GCU have you? How much RAM do you have? Please provide more info. You might also check with a live Fedora 19 if it gets better. Fedora 17 will be End Of Life soon.

There is no way of saying how well it will work. Please install Fedora 19 and give it a go. Fedora 17 only has a week or two to live.
