Several problems after installing Fedora, help!

Hello everyone, I've used Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Arch Linux, and decided to use Fedora at my office. After installing Fedora KDE spin, I have encountered the following problems which I really need help of:

(1) The mouse acceleration was horrible, so I made the following xorg.conf to use evdev instead of libinput so that the system setting mouse GUI will show me more options:

Section "InputClass" Identifier "evdev-mouse" MatchIsPointer "yes" Driver "evdev" EndSection

The acceleration problem is now solved, but instead, whenever I reboot, the mouse is set for the right handed even though I clearly set it as left handed before. This doesn't happen with libinput though. How could I fix this?

(2) I couldn't hear anything at first. I could hear once again only after 'pulseaudio -k', which I do not understand... What is the cause of the problem and how could I fix it without 'pulseaudio -k'ing every time?

(3) I saw somewhere that I should 'sudo dnf update' before downloading a package, so I did it. Now on the grub menu, I see 2 more extra kernel options (4.18.16), and they crash the computer after about a couple of minutes. Thankfully I can boot with the previous option without crashing. I want to know what caused the problem, when I should use 'sudo dnf update', and what I should do to remove the two kernel options.

I apologize for not having enough knowledge to present relevant and useful logs, but I will when I'm asked to. I wish I could get help and solve these problems and gain further knowledge!

[Edited] Here are some specifics that were asked: (can't believe the edit didn't work with the mods reviewing...) CPU: i7-8700K Mobo: ASRock B360M Pro GPU: GTX 1080 Ti I haven't installed any driver for the GPU yet, maybe that might be the cause of some of the problems?

My mouse is Maxtill Tron G10 which is just an ordinary mouse with a forward/backward button.

I'm using a usb-to-audio jack with a usb hub since the mobo's audio jack is broken. I have installed pavucontrol because some of the guides were using it to solve a similar audio problem. I want to upload the image but I can't since I need 60 points or something. It says on the 'output devices' tab, 'HDMI / DisplayPort 2 (plugged in)' above and 'Speakers' at the bottom.

I used dnf since I found an article saying yum is deprecated in Fedora. I really want to know why the new kernel options are breaking the system or when should I do dnf update, but for now, since I'm just a beginner, I want to remove the new kernel options in the grub menu and keep learning Linux for now.

I'll provide any additional information as required. Please help a desperate Linux learner...

(1) The mouse acceleration was horrible, so I made the following xorg.conf to use evdev instead of libinput so that the system setting mouse GUI will show me more options:

Section "InputClass" Identifier "evdev-mouse" MatchIsPointer "yes" Driver "evdev" EndSection

The acceleration problem is now solved, but instead, whenever I reboot, the mouse is set for the right handed even though I clearly set it as left handed before. This doesn't happen with libinput though. How could I fix this?

(2) I couldn't hear anything at first. I could hear once again only after 'pulseaudio -k', which I do not understand... What is the cause of the problem and how could I fix it without 'pulseaudio -k'ing every time?

(3) I saw somewhere that I should 'sudo dnf update' before downloading a package, so I did it. Now on the grub menu, I see 2 more extra kernel options (4.19.16), and they crash the computer after about a couple of minutes. Thankfully I can boot with the previous option without crashing. I want to know what caused the problem, when I should use 'sudo dnf update', and what I should do to remove the two kernel options.

(3) [Solved after update and installing RPM fusion!!] I couldn't hear anything at first. I could hear once again only after 'pulseaudio -k', which I do not understand... What is the cause of the problem and how could I fix it without 'pulseaudio -k'ing every time?

I apologize for not having enough knowledge to present relevant and useful logs, but I will when I'm asked to. I wish I could get help and solve these problems and gain further knowledge!

[Edited] My mouse is Maxtill Tron G10 which is just an ordinary mouse with a forward/backward button.

I'm using a usb-to-audio jack with a usb hub since the mobo's audio jack is broken. I have installed pavucontrol because some of the guides were using it to solve a similar audio problem. I want to upload the image but I can't since I need 60 points or something. It says on the 'output devices' tab, 'HDMI / DisplayPort 2 (plugged in)' above and 'Speakers' at the bottom.

I used dnf since I found an article saying yum is deprecated in Fedora. I really want to know why the new kernel options are breaking the system or when should I do dnf update, but for now, since I'm just a beginner, I want to remove the new kernel options in the grub menu and keep learning Linux for now.

I'll provide any additional information as required. Please help a desperate Linux learner...

Several problems after installing Fedora, help!

Hello everyone, I've used Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Arch Linux, and decided to use Fedora at my office. After installing Fedora KDE spin, I have encountered the following problems which I really need help of:

[Specs] CPU: i7-8700K i7-8700K

Mobo: ASRock B360M Pro Pro

GPU: GTX 1080 Ti Ti

I haven't installed any particular driver for the GPU yet.

Hello everyone, I've used Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Arch Linux, and decided to use Fedora at my office. After installing Fedora KDE spin, I have encountered the following problems which I really need help of:

Currently only the mouse problem persists, and about the newly installed kernels, I guess it is just better to reinstall? sigh..

(3) [Solved after update and installing RPM fusion!!] I couldn't hear anything at first. I could hear once again only after 'pulseaudio -k', which I do not understand... What is the cause of the problem and how could I fix it without 'pulseaudio -k'ing every time?

I apologize for not having enough knowledge to present relevant and useful logs, but I will when I'm asked to. I wish I could get help and solve these problems and gain further knowledge!

[Edited] My mouse is Maxtill Tron G10 which is just an ordinary mouse with a forward/backward button.

I'm using a usb-to-audio jack with a usb hub since the mobo's audio jack is broken. I have installed pavucontrol because some of the guides were using it to solve a similar audio problem. I want to upload the image but I can't since I need 60 points or something. It says on the 'output devices' tab, 'HDMI / DisplayPort 2 (plugged in)' above and 'Speakers' at the bottom.

I used dnf since I found an article saying yum is deprecated in Fedora. I really want to know why the new kernel options are breaking the system or when should I do dnf update, but for now, since I'm just a beginner, I want to remove the new kernel options in the grub menu and keep learning Linux for now.

I'll provide any additional information as required. Please help a desperate Linux learner...

Several problems after installing Fedora, help!

Hello everyone, I've used Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Arch Linux, and decided to use Fedora at my office. After installing Fedora KDE spin, I have encountered the following problems which I really need help of:

Currently only the mouse problem persists, and about the newly installed kernels, I guess it is just better to reinstall? sigh..

[Specs] CPU: i7-8700K

Mobo: ASRock B360M Pro

GPU: GTX 1080 Ti

I haven't installed any particular driver for the GPU yet.

(1) The mouse acceleration was horrible, so I made the following xorg.conf to use evdev instead of libinput so that the system setting mouse GUI will show me more options:

Section "InputClass" Identifier "evdev-mouse" MatchIsPointer "yes" Driver "evdev" EndSection

The acceleration problem is now solved, but instead, whenever I reboot, the mouse is set for the right handed even though I clearly set it as left handed before. This doesn't happen with libinput though. How could I fix this?

(2) I saw somewhere that I should 'sudo dnf update' before downloading a package, so I did it. Now on the grub menu, I see 2 more extra kernel options (4.19.16), and they crash the computer after about a couple of minutes. Thankfully I can boot with the previous option without crashing. I want to know what caused the problem, when I should use 'sudo dnf update', and what I should do to remove the two kernel options.

(3) [Solved after update and installing RPM fusion!!] fusion!!] I couldn't hear anything at first. I could hear once again only after 'pulseaudio -k', which I do not understand... What is the cause of the problem and how could I fix it without 'pulseaudio -k'ing every time?

I apologize for not having enough knowledge to present relevant and useful logs, but I will when I'm asked to. I wish I could get help and solve these problems and gain further knowledge!
