I installed fc25 in my dell laptop two days back. I found that the icon window for apper package is frozen when I clicked on it but the clicking activates software window to get remove install page and I am able to do installation. fine. After installation, I close this window. Even then small window on the apper icon does not go way and it says in another small window something like this

Sorry-Plasma KDEInit could not launch '/usr/bin/apper'

2017-03-28 08:16:35 -0500 asked a question problem with fc25 upgrade from fc23

HI

I tried to upgrade to fc25 from fc23. For this, I gave the following command at the terminal

sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --disablerepo=google* --disablerepo=adobe* --disablerepo=opera* --allowerasing --nogpgcheck --releasever=25

After this, all the packages were downloaded and showed to me the running test check and other things and then told me to reboot to upgrade. So I rebooted using sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot. The system restarted from old kernel and in a black screen, displayed "the system is upgrading. Please wait for a while" and I waited for some time. Then instead upgrading it rebooted again from old fc23 kernel and went to my login page. I Could see some error message such as fedora root not cleared or something like this.

What can be done to solve this?

2017-03-25 18:16:55 -0500 asked a question help with fc25 upgrade from fc23

I attempted to upgrade from fc23 to fc25. When I issued the command

> sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --disablerepo=google* --disablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree* --disablerepo=adobe* --disablerepo=opera* --allowerasing --releasever=25

all the packages were downloaded and finally it says The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction. You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'. Error: Package rpmfusion-free-appstream-data-26-1.fc26.noarch.rpm is not signed

After this When I issued the command sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot it says that Failed to set locale, defaulting to C Error: system is not ready for upgrade

Last time one of the person told me to disable fusion repos and hence I followed and still not successful What could be wrong with my upgrade?

Still the upgrade is not success. When I disable google products with dnf, the system starts downloading thousands of rpm files and at the end I typed the command sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot I got the message that the system is not ready for upgrade. Why?

2015-07-26 15:47:21 -0500 asked a question Jmol in FC21 not working properly

I upgraded from fc20 to fc21 today and found Jmol is not working properly. It is unable to show the orbitals when one of them is selected from the list. This was not the case in fc20 where it worked without any problem. In fc21, when orbital is selected I get immediately a message such as kernel problem detected. Can any one look into it?

Jmol in fc21 is not showing the orbital mesh when I select any orbital. It gives out message such as kernel problem detected. How to make jmol to show the orbital properly? Any idea. Also Jmol is slow in response compared to fc20

I removed the kernels and reupdated them and found it not working with panic sync message while booting. Now I am using 3.17.4 version and 6 and 7 version not at all working. Fedora developers take note of this problem while releasing next version of kernel

I tried to reinstall kernel-3.17.7-200.fc20.i686 using yum reinstall command using internet connection. It got the message Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit Installed package kernel-3.17.6-200.fc20.i686 not available. Error: Nothing to do Does it mean that kernel was removed from fc20 repository?

I booted with previous kernel and issued "yum-complete-transaction" command and I got the following message Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit No unfinished transactions left.
