Yup, as we discovered this seemed to happen sometime in the 3.6 cycle, and affects the system after a suspend/resume. After a cold boot the problem disappears. Apparently there's a fix coming in kernel 3.8 but that's a ways off. In the meantime, you may be able to work around this problem at least sometimes by adding this to your kernel's boot line in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg (the line that starts with vmlinuz):


I've found this takes care of the problem about 2 out of 3 times when I resume. If the problem comes back, which I verify using powertop and looking at the "Idle Stats," I just suspend and resume again until it disappears. It usually only takes one additional suspend/resume for that to happen.

2012-10-04 15:04:36 -0500 answered a question gsettings command tab key autocomplete

This should work if you have the bash-completion package installed. I am running Fedora 17 on x86_64 with bash-completion and completion for gsettings works fine. Once you run 'yum install bash-completion', you may need to logout completely and login for the shell to properly inherit the completion.

Usually this happens when trying to display an executable by loading in an editor, the terminal, or some other application designed to show text. In these cases, you can safely ignore this dialog (choose "Cancel"). If you really want to look at the executable content, one method is: xxd <filename>
