Xfce gives you the option to save your session on logout.
In earlier versions, all of my tabbed sessions of Gedit and Gnome-Terminal
would be restored.
Now, with an F21 setup, only Firefox comes up restored. At best, Gedit is
opened, but in a new document setting.
Any pointers on whether or not this can be changed so that Gedit and
Gnome-Terminal sessions are restored?
Or is this a new, undocumented feature?
I just moved from Fedora-15 to Fedora-21 and another breakage
that occurs is using Emacs with Ibus. I've been using Emacs
since the dark ages and I also need to enter and edit Japanese
This worked fine through many versions of Fedora and Ibus (or
its predecessors) up to Fedora-15 when I had to start running
Emacs with a command like "LC_TYPE=ja_JP.utf8 emacs" to get it
to accept Japanese characters.
Now in Fedora-21, the above command now longer works and I can't
find any way of getting Emacs to input Japanese characters other
than its own very awkward and poor built-in IME. It appears the
migration to a completely broken combination has been completed
Googling has not turned up much beyond a bunch of non-working,
contradictory or old information.
Is there any way to get Emacs to work with Ibus?
Sometimes, I want to view a youtube vid in full screen, which hides
the desktop and the panels.
In such cases, how can I take a screenshot of the workspace where I
am playing the youtube vid in full screen mode?
> "warn" isn't valid.
I know that now; looks like I mistook the Apache logging level names for
the Linux ones. I don't understand why an invalid log level would
generate an 'access denied' message instead of something more sensible,
like 'invalid log level'.
> Have you restarted systemd either by sending it a SIGHUP or doing
Yes, and rebooted the machine. Multiple times. No effect - I'm still
getting the "Invalid log level'warn'" message during boot even though
'warn' is no longer in system.conf.
Not sure if it's at all related, but the error message is in a section
of log/messages with bogus timestamps - 4 hours before the real time.
(Boot logs start off with the right time, says "Journal stopped", then
"journal: Runtime journal is using 4.0M (max allowed..." with the bogus
time, couple of pages of log entries with the bogus time, then repeats
"Journal stopped" w/ bogus time, then "journal: Runtime..." with the
correct one again.)
1. Why isn't systemd using the current version of the config file - even
systemctl daemon-reload, systemctl daemon-reexec, and reboots?
2. How do I get systemd to stop filling my log files with
Reached target Paths.

I've been running reposync successfully for Fedora 20 for months. Now
I'd like to repeat the process for Fedora 21 while continuing to take
updates for F20 on the same machine. But it isn't working for me.
/usr/bin/reposync -n -a x86_64 -r fedora21 -p /data/yum-mirrors/x86_64
Error setting up repositories: no such table: packages
The exact same command works perfectly if I substitute fedora20. Both
are described in my .repo files exactly the same way.
Looking around, I see that most references to this error, not for
reposync but for other YUM commands, state that the solution is to clean
the RPM data base. I've done that. I've even re-created it from scratch.
I still get the same error.
Any other ideas?
Finally found out that I was using the wrong syntax for the set-log-level
command. (Why did it say 'access denied' instead of 'bad syntax???)
Changing the log level all the way to emerg still had no effect. And in my
logs during reboot, I'm seeing this message:
systemd: [/etc/systemd/system.conf:11] Invalid log level'warn':
Operation not permitted
even though /etc/systemd/system.conf doesn't contain LogLevel=warn
(anymore) - it has LogLevel=emerg!
Why isn't systemd reading the CURRENT /etc/systemd/system.conf file? Why
does the command line setting seem to have no effect? Is systemd this
A little problem : When I click on the network applet (application in
terminal) it does not functionate and I get the following message :
nm-applet 2407 warning could not register with accessibility bus did
not receive a reply possible causes :
the remote application did not send a reply
the message bus security policy blocked the reply
network connection broken
nm-applet 2407 warning failed to register as an agent (32) an

Is there a way to solve this problem ?
Kind regards ,

New lenovo X1 carbon. Sometimes boots, sometimes hangs.
Today tried to boot and repeatly hung, saying
waitjob for /sysroot
Sounds pretty scary.
After repeated attempts, now it is booted OK.
Tried on latest kernel and also previous 1 or 2.

Every time I start firefox I'm getting the following message in the log
2015-03-26T08:43:05.397185+01:00 machine-name dbus: [system] Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.5658" (uid=1234 pid=27250 comm="/usr/lib64/firefox/firefox ") interface="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager" member="state" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager" (uid=0 pid=782 comm="/usr/sbin/NetworkManager --no-daemon ")
Does firefox really depend on NetworkManager? I don't have NetworkManager
installed, my network is started statically via /etc/rc.d/init.d/network,
so the message makes kind of sense. But really, firefox depending on
NetworkManager? That can't be right, can it?
Either way, is there a way to get rid of this log message other than
