How can I get rid of "Other" user
Will future ugrades\updates remove this by default?

In anticipation of the corresponding upstream change, I have just built
a change to the GConf schemas in libgnome to not show icons in menus and
buttons by default anymore.
This change may take a little while to get used to, but I hope that most
people will come around and appreciate the less cluttered desktop.
we've been discussing the idea of changing the default GTK+/Metacity
theme in F12. Nodoka has been the default for a while, and it seems to
undergo a major rework now ( http://mso-chronicles.blogspot.com/ ).
We don't want to do a radical visual change, though. The idea is to go
back to the upstream default, Clearlooks.
Let me know what you think.
I'd like to make this change for the alpha.
I am Onkar . I have recently completed my graduation in IT. I would like to
help in coding for fedora.
I am RHCE can some one sent me list of applications in which i can help.
Please note that I have never done kernel programming, but I know C,Java,C++
Thanks & regrads,
i have a machine with intel graphics card .fedora runs/installs
without any problem .
but when i try to start some application it get fuzzy sometime and i
see some unnecessary clatter too.
is that the problem with kernel update or using wrong acceleration
option ?why it happening anyone can explain please?
This issue with the cluttered desktop is neither new nor fedora specific. The problem is to get knowing when to stop 'improving' things on your computer.
I personally prefer a little bit older version of the OS so far it is performing well with the applications. Usually most of the applications are not complied with new developments and make problems.
If I have to choose between reliability of performance and upgraded functionality I would choose reliability and flowless operation.
If something works don't touch it unless it is damaged.
Well, it is a personal view and I do not engage anybody with it.
Here is a proposal for a drastic first cut, dropping tools that are
dysfunctional or obsoleted by other modules or of limited use or totally
uninteresting for the target audience of a desktop spin:
After this cut, we'll be left with
- PackageKit stuff
I fully expect some outcry in reaction to this proposal, but keep in
mind that the tools will still be available for installation, just not
directly on the live cd.
Hi Desktop SIG,
When I talked to someone with an EeePC today, he told me he wanted to
have Fedora 11 but had to install another OS, because Fedora would
sometimes draw windows whose action areas weren't on the screen, so he
couldn't make button selections. I don't have a netbook, so I don't
know if or how this problem might be solved, and was hoping someone
could tell me.

Depends on the hardware. If it's friendly graphics and intel
networking, we should compare quite well. If it's a macbook with
nvidia graphics and broadcom networking then all bets are off; as we
just don't know how to power down the hardware when idle.
