If there is 'no need to complicate simple things' then why are we using NetworkManager? "Complicated" is a matter of opi

The reason you can't resize the fedora-home logical-volume or the /dev/sda2 pvolume is they are mounted and in use by the running operating system.

To shrink the fedora-home volume it will need to be unmounted. It is possible to do this from the Fedora 27 workstation OS you have installed, but it can be dangerous if you have data on the drive you care about ... it's advanced drive partitioning on a live system, not something for the feint of heart.

I would recommend you use a Live operating system that can work with the physical disks. You mention KVPM, which I am unfamiliar with, but may have all the tools you need. I know the System Rescue CD live-os can do everything you need. I use it all the time for these sorts of problems.

However, there is one big gotcha you are probably facing: the XFS filesystem cannot be reduced in size. Go ahead and google that topic; every hit will tell you that making the existing filesystem smaller is not possible, the commands do not exist in the code.

The only way to achieve the desired end-state is to copy all of the data from the volume to another storage device, delete the fedora-home logical volume, recreate the volume with the smaller desired size, format the new volume filesystem, mount the new volume, and copy the data back to the volume.

It may be easier to rebuilt the Fedora27 Workstation OS with the correct partitioning/volume sizes.

2016-06-19 00:10:57 -0500 asked a question How do I get F23 Mate-Compiz to use CCSM for 3D effects?

I have a Lenovo Ideapad u430 touch that I have used with several version of Fedora and Ubuntu. The 3D rendering has worked in the past very well, but it doesn't seem to work at all anymore with F23.

I don't know if I am not enabling something, or doing something wrong, but none of the effects seem to work when I enable and configure them in CCSM.

I have checked glxinfo and it reports that direct rendering: Yes.

I have even gone so far as to wipe the system, perform a fresh install, update all packages with dnf, and then make a few changes that should be easy/obvious. Nothing seems to work.

This is probably a stupid and simple issue, but I'll be darned if I can find any doco or guidance on what I may be doing wrong.

Any ideas?
