2014-02-08 09:35:07 -0500 asked a question How to disable automatic updates in Fedora 20?

How can I turn off Fedora 20's update-upon-reboot?

Two-thirds of my Fedora installations were deeply affected, due to unlucky timing, by the recent bad-SELinux-update debacle or inept recovery from it. I understand and accept that there are no guarantee with Fedora. If I run "yum update", I'd better have done a backup first and the consequences are mine. But automatic updates are another story. They had better work. Therefore, Fedora + automatic updates is an especially risky combination. I want to be able to opt certain computers out of the random drama: if I don't press "update", I want stable state.

I looked in Settings and I looked in Software, but I did not see options to control the automatic updates.

2014-01-06 18:29:16 -0500 asked a question Gnome message disappeared - how to get it back?

I logged in to the Gnome desktop and a message notifying me about something or other rose from the bottom of the screen briefly and then sank back under again. How can I summon it back to have a chance to read it?

I want to send the Windows and Menu keys to the guest. According to help, virsh send-key can send keys by symbolic name. Where can I find the key names that virsh accepts?
