I recently became aware that the default umask for Fedora is 022 when
it caused problems for me that I had a different umask. This seems like
an anachronism, a relic of a kinder, gentler time, when the computing
atmosphere was more collegiate. Is it really appropriate that new
files be created for a user with permissions of rwxr-xr-x in today's
I set my umask to 077, so that no one can access anything.
I'm interested in other people's opinions, especially those arguing in
favor of continuing to have a umask of 022. Am I overlooking something?

All things are workable but don't all things work.

I am trying out multiple video editors on Fedora, with very poor results
and a ton of crashes.
Anyone have recommendations on how to stablize one of these or can you

I am having the same results on two Fedora 25, 64-bit systems, fully
updated. The packages
are from rpmfusion and on one of the two systems from unitedrpms. My main
system is an
older 6-core AMD with 8G of RAM so it should handle it.
The files I am testing with are:
JPG images from a DSLR
Quicktime from my DSLR (MVI_xxx.MOV),
Movie from my Android phone xxxxxxxxx.m2ts
Movie from a DVD xxx.mpg
Movie from a digital camcorder (Sony AVCHD): xxxx.MTS
My goto editor was Kdenlive, but it won't open files. I keep getting "clip
The terminal outputs:
mlt_repository_init: failed to dlopen /usr/lib64/mlt/libmltavformat.so
(/lib64/libavdevice.so.57: symbol av_buffersink_get_sample_aspect_ratio,
version LIBAVFILTER_6 not defined in file libavfilter.so.6 with link time
I think there is a lib miss-match.
Pitivi is nice, but I can't keep it running. Multiple core dumps.
I really love OpenShot. I tried the one from rpmfusion and it crashed all
for example when trying transitions. I also tried the latest version via
This seemed much more stable, but I could still crash it with transitions,
an MP3 file for audio, etc.
Anyone have a good, stable video editor or have suggestions on how to run
one of these
in a stable platform?
Note, I am filing bug reports on many of these crashes....
I occasionally have this strange mouse issue in VirtualBox.
Running an update version of Fedora 25 with GNOME and wayland. (64 bit)
Most recent VirtualBox 5.1.22
Guest Windows 10 with Guest Additions Installed.
Sometimes the mouse partially stops working and the only way to reset it I've found is to power off
When I say partially I mean
1) mouse pointer still moves
3) it can be used to trigger the GNOME task switcher (top left corner)
4) no other control responds to clicks
As soon as the Guest stops, everything starts working again.
Keyboard still works and this is what I use to gracefully shut down the guest.
Somehow the mouse click event is trapped by Virtual Box and cannot be used.
I know it makes little sense, but this is my best description at the moment.

I just installed a ton of packages to this system and all of a sudden I have this virtual keyboard. Yes, you guessed it, I don't know which package brought me this head ache.
This system is a Fedora 27 x86_64 (rawhide). I'm using KDE. The monitor is a Samsung 27" TV and has NO touch screen capability that I'm aware of. I am using ONLY the TV as a monitor... the one on the laptop is disabled as far as KDE is concerned.
Any/all help hints/tips would be GREATLY appreciated.
My UNENDING Thanks,
I had an Office Base database open for a few days (and a couple system
suspends), along with lots of spreadsheets and docs. Went to close Base
and save the database and now none of the LibreOffice docs are responding.
I thought I found the soffice.bin running and killed it, but it still
seems to be running and I can't see if there is any other related process.
How can I find the process and kill it? I really don't want to boot...
I was trying to use LibreOffice to print an envelope last night.
The Insert>Envelope... dialog worked fine, but it will only
produce a profile print. My printer wants the envelope inserted
My work-around seems to be to export a PDF, then use evince
to print the PDF, which will indeed allow me to change
the orientation when printing.
Is that really the only (relatively simple) way to print
envelopes? (It might actually be simpler to use texlive
and command line tools).
I am needing a bit of help. I am converting some of my old crontab
entries to xxx.timer and xxx.service systemd files. I have the following
(the system is a backup server that can be woken by magic packets or
some amount of time before the backups run):
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/rtcwake -m mem -t $(/usr/bin/date +\%s -d 'today
23:50') > /dev/null
Invalid escape sequences in line, correcting: "/usr/sbin/rtcwake -m mem
-t $(/usr/bin/date +\%s -d 'today 23:50') > /dev/null"
Is there a way to correct this easily, or am I going to have to turn
that line into a separate shell script?
