Via the link above note the "update" at the bottom of the piece for anyone Linux 3.13 above. The original fix would hang my system at boot. The new command video.use_native_backlight=1 worked first time and I can now dim my screen. Happy days :-)

2014-02-16 13:30:21 -0500 commented question F20 boot freezing after Fedora logo appear

Now this is peculiar, after not being able to get to boot once yesterday normally (and I tried over and over again) it has just gone through and worked today. I have not even installed an update!? Thank you for your response and if this problem occurs again I will add the requested line.

2014-02-15 14:09:09 -0500 asked a question F20 boot freezing after Fedora logo appear

Hi All,

Fedora 20 has started to freeze on me during boot up. It gets as far as the Fedora logo, then when that starts to 'fill' with white to show the progress it hangs about 75% through and becomes unresponsive.

If I do a hard shutdown I can log in and type as I am now when I choose the linux rescue kernel at start up.

Any suggestions as to what I could try to fix the problem?

Thank you.

2014-02-09 08:52:12 -0500 asked a question Stata 12 fails to run due to missing libs. Can anyone help fix?

Hi All,

I have been trying to get Stata 12 running on my Fedora 20 system but after I followed the install instructions and try to run the program I get the following error;

/usr/local/stata12/xstata: error while loading shared libraries: libgtksourceview-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

When I go to install the package I get;

Package 1:gtksourceview-1.8.5-14.fc20.i686 already installed and latest version

Nothing to do

But I still get the error each time I try to run Stata.

Any suggestions as what I could do/try next?

Thank you!

Hi all,

I reinstalled Fedora this week, installed deja dup and each time it runs not I get the error message "Backup Failed: Another backup operation is already running".

I did some Googling and found a suggestion to run the command [ps aux | grep deja-dup] which gives the following output;

keith 1829 0.0 0.0 565084 3268 ? Sl 20:29 0:00 /usr/libexec/deja-dup/deja-dup-monitor

keith 4338 0.0 0.0 112668 984 pts/0 S+ 20:51 0:00 grep --color=auto deja-dup

Any suggestions what to try next to help solve the issue? Thanks in advance.

2013-09-22 04:20:38 -0500 commented question nvidia proprietary driver vs. kernel update causes fedora 19 to not boot

I am experiencing what sounds like the same issue. Just after the Fedora 19 splash a page of text pops up and "plymouth boot to quit" (or something like that) fails to load and hangs the system there. However on system start grub does give me the option of choosing the current or previous kernel, I choose the previous kernel and it boots up fine. All I could suggest is find a way to roll back to the previous kernel (Linux 3.10.11-200.fc19.x86_64 x86_64) as it does work for me with a NVIDIA Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 620].

2013-08-17 00:21:36 -0500 answered a question Super+M Not Working. How can I reset to default? [Closed]

FINALLY!

It is the Shellshape Gnome Extension causing this issue. I am not even sure why as I can not even see a reference to Super+M in the dconf settings. Either way, turning off this extension allows me to use Super+M again.

Thanks all for the time and effort.

I should add that I do not think the "gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings" command works. When I use it my keybindings remain with CTRL+M, I have to manually switch back using the Settings->Keyboard.

2013-08-14 09:56:39 -0500 commented answer Super+M Not Working. How can I reset to default? [Closed]

Does not work

2013-08-13 23:16:43 -0500 commented question Super+M Not Working. How can I reset to default? [Closed]

Once I reset the keybinding back to Super+M both the output's seem to be the exact same. You can see for yourself here http://ur1.ca/f1rr9 . Something is obviously overriding the defaults on the desktop, baffling me though.

Tried the reset option, but no change in functionality. I will post the output of the other command into my original question above

2013-08-11 11:10:32 -0500 commented question Super+M Not Working. How can I reset to default? [Closed]

I gave that a try (renamed .config) and rebooted. On start I got the initial setup screen and video for how to use Fedora but no change with the Super+M, it minimized the windows again. Have gone back to using the original dconf folder now.

Logged into another users account on this computer and Super+M works fine. Looks like it is limited to just my account.

Tried Halfline's suggestion but the terminal command did not change anything.

Hi All,

After booting up today whenever I press the Super+M shortcut instead of getting the notification window it minimises the open windows. I have gone into the shortcut settings but it does not look like that anything has changed, and I did try resetting to Super+M just to make sure but no help. Is there a way to reset the shortcuts as I can not see an option in the settings->keyboard? Using Fedora 19.

Note that in Overview the Super+M works to show the notifications, but outside of overview it minimizes instead. Assigning Super+M to another keybinding like CTRL+M works fine too and that is what I am using as a workaround for now.

Extra Info:

For reference this is the output of gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings | egrep -i "super"

org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings maximize ['<super>Up'] org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings minimize ['<super>h'] org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings move-to-workspace-down ['<super><shift>Page_Down', '<control><shift><alt>Down'] org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings move-to-workspace-up ['<super><shift>Page_Up', '<control><shift><alt>Up'] org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-applications ['<super>Tab', '<alt>Tab'] org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-group ['<super>Above_Tab', '<alt>Above_Tab'] org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-input-source ['<super>space'] org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-to-workspace-down ['<super>Page_Down', '<control><alt>Down'] org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-to-workspace-up ['<super>Page_Up', '<control><alt>Up'] org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings unmaximize ['<super>Down', '<alt>F5']
