2015-03-27 11:48:34 -0500 marked best answer Fedora 16 Grub2

After I upgraded to F16, I saw that the Grub2 splash image or the background is black. Ubuntu ships themes for Grub2 as far I know, but I didn't find any theme for Grub2 in Fedora. Any pointers on it or workarounds ?

Presently White on Black feels I m back in Red Hat 9 :(

2015-03-27 11:45:25 -0500 marked best answer How do I run Sugar in Fedora 16?

I followed the steps from this Sugarlabs wiki link to build sugar in my Fedora 16 box. Till the build stage everything was successful but when I try to run sugar-emulator with the command -

# ./sugar-jhbuild run sugar-emulator

The screen start where I can input my name, goes to next windows to choose the color. The moment I click the next button in that sugar-emulator window it crashes giving the following error -

Window manager warning: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on display ':30'.

Any thing I am missing ? Please help.

P.S : I am running GNOME3 Desktop Environment. I don't want a separate Desktop Environment, I need my sugar to run on a application window in Gnome3 desktop.

I can't find any plugin or protocol for Skype in Empathy. But after getting all the chat protocols integrated in Empathy, I don't feel like switching in Skype separately. Can there be any means with which I can use full Skype functionality (through my Skype account) via Empathy ?

2015-03-27 11:44:38 -0500 marked best answer Regarding profile picture in Ask Fedora

The Handy tutorial to update profile picture in Ask Fedora says that " just register at gravatar.com (just please be sure to use the same email address that you used to register with us)"

My question is what if the person has regsitered in Ask Fedora with his Open ID, Does the system still is successful in getting the encrypted key from gravatar.com ?

2015-03-27 11:44:17 -0500 marked best answer Issues while installing F15 through bootable pen drive (made with live-usb creator)

I was trying to use F15 bootable pen drive (having the whole dvd image) to install fedora in my box. The catch is just before asking me for packages to install the installer needed internet connection. That moment I didn't have any internet connection, so I was unable to pass that screen and couldn't install F15. Is this a imposed restriction, or a bug ? Is this same for F16 ?

2015-03-27 11:39:44 -0500 marked best answer In F16 No Login screen after lock

After I lock my laptop and then not touch it for an hr or 2, I don't get the login prompt back whatever I try to do after coming back (move mouse, type keys). I have to manually shutdown the system by pressing the poweroff button of my laptop.

I am using ACER Aspire 4520.

Just curious to know If I am facing denials regarding a particular Service, Can I just turn on different modes of SeLinux only for that Service rather than affecting the whole system ?

2012-07-02 05:32:15 -0500 marked best answer Fedora 16 Grub2

Found the solution in other question, and added the background bit:

Add the following to /etc/default/grub:

GRUB_GFXMODE=1280x960x16
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep
GRUB_BACKGROUND=/boot/verne.tga

Execute:

grub2-mkfont --output=/boot/grub2/unicode.pf2 /usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSansMono.ttf

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

You can use any ttf font, any resolution supported by your monitor/card, and any image converted to tga. I used the verne.png background, since I love that background...
