2013-03-31 20:02:04 -0500 asked a question F18 Gnome hybrid-sleep

So, how does one get gpm to accept the systemd suspend methods so as to trigger user defined actions upon certain events? In particular, I want to enable hybrid-sleep instead of suspend. I've tested that my system works properly when I trigger it manually through systemctl hybrid-sleep, or through suspend (where I've made a change to execstart to call systemd-sleep hybrid-sleep).

What's the output of: gsettings list-keys org.gnome.desktop.input-sources Also, when was the last time you updated? There was a testing push of ibus-m17n-1.3.4-6 on Oct 8. That included some missing ibus type boosting. Here's the bug page:

2012-10-17 18:00:33 -0500 answered a question Use Sublime 2 on Fedora 17 instead of gedit

Using the desktop file you created, add the mimetypes you wish to open with the application. In the case of gedit, its .desktop file has the following line


So, add that, along with any other types in particular you're interested in. Then execute:

xdg-mime default APPLICATION.desktop MIMETYPES

To verify that this worked you can do this:

xdg-mime query default MIMETYPE

Hope this helps.

Ok. You might not have ibus-m17n installed. You may have to restart the ibus service for it to take effect (I'm honestly not sure if that's neccessary b/c ibus is a bit of a mystery to me). If that is the case and it fixes your problem, you should submit a bug (if one hasn't already been submitted). Also, make sure you have a gujarti font installed (mine seems to be lohit-gujarti). If ibus-m17n is installed, try running this command: "gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.input-sources show-all-sources true". Here is the relevant page:

2012-10-15 17:14:58 -0500 commented answer mod_dav_svn error while installing

So, you removed httpd, then installed svn and now you are trying to install php but are getting a similar error? Can you post the exact error it is giving you? I just checked my F18 repos for the deplist of php and I'm not seeing anything that might be a problem with regards to svn. I'd guess the problem lies with the your added repo. They can create practically intractable problems.You might simply have the wrong set of package versions in your personal repo. Still, lets see the exact errors, and see if we can do something.

2012-10-15 16:48:09 -0500 commented answer Edit Places in the file chooser/Nautilus---Fedora 18

Thanks, Mo! Okay, clearly I'm slow. I hadn't realized what "Bookmarks" meant (I notice that little gear menu has an entry for "Bookmark this Location" (but, oddly, no accelerator (hmm, suddenly I feel a need to work in Lisp...))). So, editing the file location you provided, or using the menu entry, creates a new section to the sidebar called Bookmarks, but it looks as though the "Places" section has been hardcoded. BTW, do you know if the expected behavior of the Comments editor on this site is supposed to use the Return character to submit the comment rather than create a newline?

2012-10-15 16:40:50 -0500 marked best answer Edit Places in the file chooser/Nautilus---Fedora 18

Hi Liam, there used to be a .gtk-bookmarks file in your home directory you could edit to control what Places pointed to. It appears the file has moved in Fedora 18. Look in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks. By default the file should look like this:






You should be able to edit that file to change or remove the entries, or add additional entries. You can probably add remote locations too via a url pointing to the protocol.

2012-10-15 04:02:09 -0500 answered a question Configure iBus on Fedora 18 Alpha

I just tried this and it seemed to work for me (keeping in mind I don't read/speak any Indic language):

Go to System Settings -> Region & Language. Now choose press the + button and type what language you want ("guj" brought up Gujarti for me) and select it. That should return you to the Language tab and show Gujarti being selected. Next change the Formats with the same method. Then go to Input Sources. Here you need to select your input type. You have four options for Gujarti: itrans, phonetic, inscript, and inscript2. I chose the itrans and then went back and chose phonetic as well. Select your desired input source and configure it if you want. Now ibus should've put the icon at top panel to the right. Click on it and you should have your options. I ended up with my native english and two Gujarti input options (itrans and phonetic). As I said, they seemed to work when I typed with them, but I'm unable to say for certain they provide the results you're looking for.

Hope this helps.

2012-10-15 03:25:11 -0500 answered a question mod_dav_svn error while installing

First, verify that the version of svn you are trying to install is the one you want (that httpd-mmn package looks old). If these are repos you made yourself, and they are setup correctly, AND the rpms are correct then try the following:

Looks like you're using versions of httpd-mmn and subversion-libs that are too recent for moddavsvn. You can try downgrading those packages specifically using "yum downgrade" but you need to make sure that nothing except moddavsvn is using those packages using "rpm -q --whatrequires". Keep in mind that that last command only gives you the first level of dependencies. That is, if you type in that command with glib2 it only show things that directly require it, not all of the reverse dependencies. Still, it should give you a good idea.

Hope this helps.

2012-10-15 02:49:37 -0500 answered a question How can I Download Movie player in Fedora 17 (32 Bit)

Can you explain your problem in a little more detail? Assuming you are using the standard Fedora desktop (Gnome), you should have Movie Player (totem is what Movie Player is aliased to) installed. If that isn't installed you can install it by using either typing in "software" in the shell overview, or using yum in the terminal. Assuming you have enabled the rpmfusion repos, you can also grab the various gstreamer plugins needed to play whatever formats you want. If you don't want to use Movie Player you can then grab mplayer (I'd use Gnome Mplayer if you're using Gnome), or VLC, or any of a number of players. However, if you are in the US or Canada (even parts of Europe, IIRC), there are some legal issues you should be aware of before downloading said codecs. If you want to playback these things legally in the US/Canada you can buy codec packs from, IIRC, Fluendo. Having said that, nearly everyone just downloads whatever playback codecs they need (even windows/Mac users), and I've never heard of anyone ever being prosecuted for playing back content they own with codecs they haven't paid for.

2012-10-15 01:15:24 -0500 asked a question Edit Places in the file chooser/Nautilus---Fedora 18

So, I want to add and remove some of the default locations in the file chooser and Nautilus. I'm aware a number of things were removed without replacements in this release (losing dual-pane mode was a huge productivity loss for me) but I don't recall reading anything about this issue so I am hoping that there is an easy fix (perhaps some gsettings key I missed).
