At some point recently, my monitor stopped getting turned off after the
prescribed period of inactivity. I'm using the XFCE power manager, and its
settings remain untouched.
Manually executing "xset dpms force off" turns the monitor off normally.
"xset q" shows that everything appears to be in order:
DPMS (Energy Star):
Standby: 300 Suspend: 360 Off: 420
DPMS is Enabled
Monitor is On
So, what else can I check?

Howdy, all -
I have an Epson Workforce 600 printer, and it's actually a great
printer except for one thing: it goes through ink cartridges like an
out of control tweaker in a room full of meth.
I need a printer with the following features, and I'd love any
advice/experience you have had:
1) networked, works with Linux (the kids and me) and Windows (wife)
3) fast print speed (not as high a priority, but nice)
4) prefer laser printer, as opposed laser jet
I had an HP LaserJet 4, and it was awesome, but it was not color and
it finally died. I'm looking for that sort of experience, just newer.

as you probably know (from another thread) I've just installed Fedora 23 on
my dell m6800 and I have a new problem.
I have let the installer create my user and it has given it uid 1000 and
gid 1000. This is the standard behavior and I'm used to change it by
manually edit /etc/group and /etc/passwd but this time this behavior has
broken my user. I can't enter at the kde login (before in the splash screen
it was asking for the password of my user than asking for a password but no
user was specified and I got a login erro when I use my passowrd).
Also removing the user with userdel and readd it with useradd didn't solve
the issue. The only fix I found was to reinstall the whole system. But now
I still have the need to change the user uid and its group number. Which is
the correct way?
Thank you again for the help and Merry Christmas
I have an issue certain applications not displaying the scroll bars
I am using the upstream Nightly version of Firefox and the upstream
Daily version of Thunderbird. Both of these display the vertical scroll
bar permanently, but neither of them display the top and bottom arrows.
Another application I have looked at is Gedit which only displays the
vertical scroll bar when you mouse over it, but it doesn't display the
top and bottom arrows either. I get these issues irrespective of what
KDE theme I use.
Looking at the KDE Settings App it displays the scroll bars with top and
bottom arrows fine.
The Kwin script to force window decorations on GTK+ apps is active.
Does anyone have any ideas why the above mentioned applications don't
show the arrows but the KDE Settings Application does show the arrows,
and whether or not there is anyway to rectify it? From memory I did not
have this issue in F21 and F22 was installed from scratch from the live
DVD because the F21->F22 upgrade process does not work on my system (the
upgrade process wants to run the install from the Grub menu and on my
system my wireless network is not active at that point and cannot be
made active because of required drivers).
I ran journalctl -b to see what is causing bumblebee to fail. I see the log
is huge. There are thousands of line and the file is as big as 5.1 mb. I see a
sendmail line over and over. I don't think I use sendmail or what installed

I was looking at how to get Fedora on an Rpi 2, but then I realised the
latest Pidora version is an F20 based RC from 2014. Is this all we
have? Maybe someone knows a way to install from the latest ARM images.
The official ARM installer does not seem to support Rpi. This is the
I tried none, it doesn't install U-boot and then the Pi doesn't boot.
Thanks for any other ideas.
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
On my F22 system I typically use mate as my desktop environment.
Occasionally I log out and try to login using gnome. It quickly
comes up with a screen saying "Opps, something has gone wrong".
If I try "gnome classic" instead, it takes a little longer and
I get a flash of an new desktop before the "Opps" screen.
After the failed login, I went debugging by logging into a
Looking at ~/.xsessionerrors there are 4 lines of
"stty: standard input: Inappropriate ioctl for device"
and nothing else.
I don't notice any errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log*.
If I try it logging in as a new user with gnome it starts
If I remove ~/.gnome* and ~/.gconf* the problem still occurs.
Any hints where to look?

I just bought me a new laptop (HP envy) and installed Fedora 23 dual boot
with Win 8.1. Everything works great, but there are a couple of things
about the KDE installation that cause me a bit of a disappointment.
1) There's no desktop cube animation option. Is that a design/deployment
decision, or is it an installation problem? Obviously, losing a bit of
eye-candy is not the end of the world, but I'm a bit dissapointed.
The other is an Activity thing that I'll ask about in a second post, so as
not to mix topics.
Thanks for any information -- a Google search didn't supply anything.
Fedora 23, Firefox 43.0, and 43.0.3.
In the last couple of weeks I started to get this message often while in Gmail:
Oops… the system encountered a problem (#007) - Retrying in 1s…
Often this takes a lot more than 1s to recover. It always happens when
sending emails, and the first attempt for an email always fails,
clicking send again always succeeds.
This happens in safe mode, and with a new test user login account (a
whole new login environment), and it happens with multiple gmail
accounts. If I reboot to OS X, and use Firefox 43, it never happens.
So the network and hardware are identical, the only factor seems to be
something unique to Fedora. There are no messages logged in the
journal at this time.
I've tried disabling firewalld, connecting to another network via
openvpn+private tunnel, and disabling ipv6. No change.
Any suggestions? In the meantime, I'm going to see if I can reproduce
in vmm/kvm booting Fedora 23 live. This is really super annoying.
