I know this was discussed hundred times already, but I again ran to a
F8T2 review  which mentions this. Why is the nautilus defaulted to
spatial mode? IMHO, the browser mode is much more effective, has the
very useful sidepanel (treeview and bookmarks are the most usefull
ones), and opens only one window. Is there any reason to stay with
spatial mode, while almost anyone complains about it?
PS: I know, that I can change it very fast, but shouldn't the default be
the more effective one?
Does anyone have any objections to me replacing the "official"
bittorrent client (~2 megs) with Transmission (~500k)?
Transmission is better integrated in the desktop, smaller in size, and
Due to some changes in the past (anaconda requires zenity requires yelp
requires firefox / wallpaper is now in gnome-backgrounds which requires
desktop-backgrounds-basic) the size of the kde livecd is exploding. I
think the easiest way of saving some space is to remove some fonts. But
I need some help with this to not remove some essential fonts for some
The included fonts atm are:
P.S.: The full package list of my actual version is listed here:

At present, I only have relative evidence:
On Firefox/Fedora I only have "Dom Inspector", "Adblock", and
"DownloadThemAll" where as on my much slower laptop machine

I do have Flash 9 installed, however, I have seen no correlation
between Flash and slowdowns. At one point i hit a vmsize for firefox

Since I haven't done anything special to Firefox, I'm hoping to gather

Can apps start using better menu names now, so users know which apps are
really behind the mysterious generic items in menus, e.g.,

Meeting will take place at 2pm EST (19:00 UTC) in #fedora-meeting on
I don't have a big agenda prepared; and I assume that we will be
somewhat short on people today, with the X team still at XDS and some
other people travelling as well.
I use epiphany as my default browser of choice instead firefox. This goes
well on i386 installs of Fedora but on x86_64 installations this becomes
a trouble, if tools like nspluginwrapper are not working fine or if 64bit
JRE plugin is not there yet.
Fedora for x86_64 has a firefox.i386 package for 32bit compatibility,
should epiphany also have epiphany.i386 package in x86_64 repo ?
I just realized that I will not be able to attend the meeting today (for
some reason I thought it was at 1, not at 2). Here are the notes that I
had for things that could be discussed today. I hope someone else can do
the cheering/dancing/leading. Chris are you going to be there ?
Anyway, here are my notes:
• what desktop features are in and testable ?
∘ animated backgrounds
∘ bluetooth printing, browsing, smsing
∘ policykit - not much there yet, need to check with david,
intlclock, gnome-device-manager still missing
∘ lots of quirks for suspend/resume and keyboard handling
∘ new theme (partially)
• which desktop features are not yet in ?
∘ new NM
desktop spin status (from booting a spin built with yesterdays rawhide)
• udev slow
• tries to set up lvm - why ?
• rpcbind/statd/idmapd - should be turned off
• autofs too
• do we want rhgb on the livecd ?
• starting avahi fails - needs to be after NM ?
• dhcdbd should go out with the new NM
• avoid getty on vt1 ?
• test2 feature testing and bug hunt
• side-by-side comparison to ubuntu, opensuse, etc
• SIGs/Desktop vs Desktop is confusing to me, can we have just one ?
