2012-03-25 13:49:33 -0500 answered a question is Fedora designed for server?

The short answer is maybe. Depending on your need for the server will greatly depend on what tool will be best for it.

If you're looking to build a webserver, then I would agree with other posts and try something with a little more enterprise and long term support like CentOS or RHEL or Scientific.

For other things, Fedora would be great at having the latest and greatest, cutting edge software.

2012-03-21 00:57:36 -0500 answered a question Blu-Ray Playback

Try installing VLC and libdvdcss. Yes, generally Blu-Ray playback requires some 3rd party software and codecs to be installed to function.

2012-03-03 01:07:20 -0500 answered a question Please, someone speak spanish... I don't have any idea about Fedora

The Fedora Project is very multilingual and is very easy to install. Try reading through some of the documentation on the Fedora pages for some advice on how to get started.

2012-03-01 03:46:54 -0500 marked best answer Adding or Removing Icons from the application drawer?

To add a launcher for your user only, put it's desktop file in


(~ being your home directory). To add a launcher for all users, put the desktop file in


If you want to learn how to create a desktop file, you can look at the ones already installed on your computer (in /usr/share/applications) or read the desktop file specification.

As for removing icons, I am not familiar with any good method. You can delete the relevant files from /usr/share/applications, but they will come back when you update your system.

Also, I am not aware of a graphical way (that works with Fedora 16) of doing this.

It's not a plug-in, but it is the guide you were looking for. It's written for the Arch documentation project, but it will all still apply. It's about customizing your bashrc

2012-02-17 21:07:17 -0500 answered a question Fedora 16 DVD Burn ISO

As others have mentioned, ensure the the ISO is not corrupted and try burning the ISO at the lowest speed possible. Often times burning at a lower speed will help reduce the chances of mistakes.

2012-02-16 05:06:10 -0500 answered a question Can fedora16 desktop be treated as a server

It honestly just depends on what kinds of server you're running. If you're just practicing living in the shell or just learning RHEL and Linux in general Fedora will generally work quite well but as others have mentioned both CentOS and Scientific Linux are other good substitutes.

2012-02-15 03:13:04 -0500 commented answer Is there a Fedora stable? LTS?

@ztank1013 Firstly, OP mentioned that they'd tied CentOS and found it "not so easy to use and not so good for desktop PCs" Personally, I think SL is more friendly than CentOS and in general have found that development has been faster in SL than CentOS.

2012-02-15 01:53:12 -0500 answered a question Is there a Fedora stable? LTS?

How long term is your long term need? Fedora is focused on progress, but isn't so forward that stability is lost. End of life support is extended for 1 year after it's release for example Fedora 16 will be supported until Fedora 18 ships.

You hearing that Fedora is unstable I will attest to being incorrect. I use Fedora as my daily machine everyday with no problems. If you're worried about stability stay away from Rawhide and the testing repos.

A second option is to use an Enterprise designed needs and honestly, not really necessary for somebody like yourself for home use. If it is absolutely required, I suggest using Scientific Linux 6 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Patches accepted.

2012-02-09 12:57:06 -0500 answered a question Why there is a special icon for Wacom Tablet in System Settings?

More than likely it's that a) Wacom is the most well known of the tablet brands and b) Wacom has a wide number of linux drivers. This is not a case of advertising at all, it's including functionality.
