Just wondering if anyone else has experienced in F18 (GNOME3.6) a weird
bug where the alt+tab switcher does not disappear?
When it happens, i can press press alt+tab again and other switcher is
displayed under (z-index wise) the one already on the screen. If i keep
pressing alt+tab, these layer up also.
The annoying part is that when you go to restart the shell, (with
alt+f2), that overlay does not get keyboard focus, so you can't restart
it from there. The only way to restart the shell is to switch to another
tty, and kill the gnome-shell process with kill -9
anyone else experiencing this issue?
Currently, I'm maintaining open-vm-tools in Fedora.
open-vm-tools provides significant functionality for VM management
and helps in anything that requires co-ordination with the guest.
open-vm-tools package provides a sub-package open-vm-tools-desktop.
open-vm-tools-desktop is a very small package and provides integration
of VM's desktop UI with host UI or remote client UI. It is essential for
improved user experience of the VM UI, e.g. things like copy/paste,
proper VM UI screen resolution. This package spawns a process on
each user login (the process is stopped during logout). The process exits
gracefully if the desktop is not running on a VMware VM.
I would like to include open-vm-tools-desktop package as part of most
of the desktop package groups in Fedora by default. Could you please
help me with the process to make the necessary changes?
FYI, I'm working with Fedora group to include open-vm-tools as part
of @standard group.
I recently discovered that if I have a printer attached to a Windows
machine (and shared via samba), it'll unusable on default install, because
samba-client isn't installed by default.
control-center's printers panel managed to discover the printer, but after
the driver prompt dialog it gave a cryptic error message and did not
install the printer.
After installing samba-client, adding a samba network printer worked as
expected. Therefor I suggest we add samba-client to our default
installation, it's only 1.2MB.
Ideally I think it should be added as a Requires in control-center's spec
file, but we could add it to comps instead. If you think adding this to the
default install is a bad idea, control-center should install it with
packagekit whenever users tries to add a Samba printer.
On a related (printing) note, I think it would also make sense to have
hpijs as a default as well, to support more printers.
