I have a ViewSonic VX2035wm LCD Display monitor on this computer that is
not recognized by Fedora-18. in order to get a reasonable display I have
to run /usr/bin/xrandr -s 1680x1050 after I am logged in and the display
[XFCE] is running. That works for me but it seems a bit clunky and after
doing so for more than a year I would like to find some more elegant way
to deal with it.
I could use a different monitor but I prefer the aspect ratio of this
one, it's wide but higher than the others available.
Anyone know a better way to deal with this? As it stands it is just one
of the things I do every morning after booting the computer ...
Box 10 Fedora-19/64 XFCE Linux
After a system update 2-3 weeks ago, applications like java and
firefox began to take a quite long time to start up (an extra ~10s).
However this only occurs when I am connected to a network, when my
laptop is running unconnected everything is fine (however it doesn't
matter wether I am connected at home or in the office, so the cause is
not a malfunction of my DNS server).
Today I tried to find out what is going on and it seems the
applications are stalled while looking up the hostname of my own
Shouldn't in this case the lookup return immediantly?
As I haven't changed my configuration at all, any idea which update
introduced this issue?
Thank you in advance, Clemens

When I start Clementine from inside Firefox (i.e. connecting to radio
stream of www.liveireland.com, music starts but Clementine is not shown
(playing in the background..so when I want to stop it I have to use
System Monitor to kill)- But this happens in Gnome not in Mate for example.
Is anyone elsenoting this??
Linux Fedora F19(Schroedinger's cat) on Acer 5720
I installed Fedora 19 on my son's laptop, and it worked beautifully
with the already installed Windows 8. Then foolishly, I upgraded the
Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. Now it boots straight to Windows 8.1 and
grub does not appear.
I disabled secure boot in the firmware.
I do not even know which version of grub was booting the UEFI system
before; it just worked.
Now I need to know.
Can anyone suggest:
1. What grub would the Fedora 19 installer have provided to boot it
and Windows 8? (grub2, grub-efi,...)
2. Can anyone point to any documentation on how to fix this?
I am a little nervous on this, as I once attempted to upgrade an F18
UEFI stand alone system from grub-efi to grub2 with the result that I
could not boot the machine, and wound up re-installing Fedora.
I have a live disk, can boot the machine with that, and have some
experience with grub and non-EFI systems.

I disclaim, therefore I am.
I have the following partitions on a 1TB disk:
- 1M BIOS boot partition
- 500M Linux boot partition
- 733G Linux LVM partition (Fedora 19)
- 200G unused space
I would like to install Windows 8 on this last partition. Anyone knows if
this will mess up with my current boot manager? Can Windows 8 coexist with

No, not like that. Read the following two lines he wrote:

If he might have wished to enlarge the same thread, he should have

My intention was not to handle someone with gloves but I don't
understand why people consider it being a troll type mail. Well, I
find the reason. It happens that when you are new to Linux, you often
ask something which is pretty easy or might have been asked earlier.
So what? This query must have been so common that I came to know it
should not be asked but I had asked it actually. But again, does it
really a matter of great worth or we are wasting time in this type of
discussion? A general question from a newbie's mind is generally not
that advanced. End users won't always ask what scripts are need for
what purpose, they are more inclined towards the ease of use and
especially with Linux and thus the same type of questions get
generated in their mind. It is also possible, I get less time to have
hands on Linux, so really it seems a bit more confusing...!

i used to use 'gaagle' until i found "ixquick", which does not do all
the tracking and such that gaagle does.
i set a bookmark button in firefox 'menu bar' to open in
_advanced_search_ mode for tighter searches.
i now get better search results and ixquick allows be to save a
bookmark of search that i can use at a later time, along with
modifying search parameters.

one of many reason that i use firefox for browser.
