Thanks, this worked nicely!

2018-11-15 03:19:54 -0500 marked best answer Slack not running on Fedora 29

I installed Slack from the official website by downloading the package, but when I try to run the app, it is not running, and I do not see any errors appearing. Has any of you any experience with installing and using Slack on Fedora 29?

2018-11-13 15:34:09 -0500 marked best answer How to install Texmaker in Fedora 29?

I want to install Texmaker on my Fedora 29 machine, but I had already previously installed the Texlive 2018 manually. And if I try to do dnf install texmaker it tries to install a different version of Texlive also as a dependency, but since I already have my own installation of Texlive I do not want to install it again. I tried to download the .rpm package from the official website of Texmaker, but I believe it is intended for the Fedora 28, cause when I tried to install the downloaded package, I'm greeted with an error that the following dependency is not found:

libQt5Core.so.5(Qt_5.10.1_PRIVATE_API)(64bit) is needed by texmaker-5.0.3-6.1.x86_64

Though, I don't know whether there is a way to install this in Fedora 29. Any ideas?

Okay, I build i from source. And now it works all fine.

I think you did not read my question fully. I know that, but it tries to install as dependency a distribution of Texlive

Btw, the screen turns complete blank, I cannot even see the mouse cursor. I don't know how relevant this is.

2018-11-10 09:33:17 -0500 marked best answer Blueman on startup asks for authentication twice

I installed Blueman to setup my Bluetooth mouse, and it seems to work all fine, though, when I start Fedora, it asks me to enter my password twice, once for configuring the network, and the other time for changing the RfKill State. This can be a bit annoying, and I want to make sure that the authentications on startup do not appear.

I made the following edits, but it still appears:

/lib/udev/rules.d/50-bluetooth-hci-auto-poweron.rules:

# /lib/udev/rules.d/50-bluetooth-hci-auto-poweron.rules

# Set bluetooth power up
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="bluetooth", KERNEL=="hci[0-9]*", RUN+="/bin/hciconfig %k up"

/etc/polkit-1/rules.d/81-blueman.rules:

# /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/81-blueman.rules

# Rule to relax polkit and remove the two auth steps on startup
polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
    if (action.id == "org.blueman.rfkill.setstate" && subject.local && subject.active && subject.isInGroup("wheel")) {
        return polkit.Result.YES;
    }
    if (action.id == "org.blueman.network.setup" && subject.local && subject.active && subject.isInGroup("wheel")) {
        return polkit.Result.YES;
    }
});

I basically see the following lines in my logs once I enter the passwords on startup:

Nov 10 15:40:55 vt.io polkitd[1248]: Operator of unix-session:2 successfully authenticated as unix-user:eyt to gain TEMPORARY authorization for action org.blueman.network.setup for system-bus-name::1.333 [/usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/blueman-applet] (owned by unix-user:eyt)

Any ideas how can I overcome the authentication checks at startup?

EDIT:

Apparently, I saw the following error:

Nov 10 16:03:35 vt.io polkitd[1117]: Error compiling script /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/81-blueman.rules

It is defined as shown above, and has the following permissions:

-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 411 Nov 10 15:39 81-blueman.rules

Any reason why the compilation may fail?
