2013-10-04 19:58:19 -0500 asked a question Chromium on F20


I upgraded to F20 and now Chromium does not work. Someone said to downgrade the repo then it will let me install it. How do I do that?

I have used Kingsoft for a while both on my Linux machine and Windows machine. On my windows computer the only program I still use from Microsoft is Access.

In Windows I know you can have multiple languages selected for your keyboard and hot key ctrl and shift and it will change the keyboard. Does Fedora have anything like that? I am looking for Bulgarian and Russian.

Auto close of questions that have not been answered in a few years, more than likely that person has moved on from their problem or has figured out a solution elsewhere.

2013-09-05 02:21:58 -0500 answered a question battery draining less than one hour

Powertop is a great app for helping with low battery issues. I had this suggest to me in #fedora and I installed it on my machine. After fixing what it said was bad I am getting around an extra 1-1.5 hours on my battery. I cant post links because of my karma but if you google powertop its the first thing that comes up.

It's best for troubleshooting/pinpointing a module that drains your power AND it's very easy to use.

In terminal go
su -c 'yum install powertop'
su -c 'powertop'
Right away you see processes sorted by power usage (wakes translate to power usage) and you have the ones to blame.
If I were you I would switch to the Tunables tab (using Tab key) without further troubleshooting and enabled all of 'bad'-marked modules using the ENTER key. Open another Terminal window and launch sensors to see the temperatures and fan RPM.

I know this is a little off topic, have you explored Mate Desktop? I used to use Gnome 2 till it was removed, now I have been using Mate ever since.
