F27. I ran a new laptop battery down to 4% (as claimed by gnome) and my
laptop didn't auto-suspend, nor hibernate.
In settings / power, the only option for battery power these days seems to
be to automatically suspend after a set time period; not at a certain
a) did I imagine it that earlier fedoras used to have this feature?
b) any way I can enable auto-suspect on low battery for F27?
After upgrading to Fedora 28, most of Youtube is broken in Firefox, claiming
lack of H.264 codec support.
Googling around, found this: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/OpenH264
But none of the packages are currently available:
[root@thinkpad yum.repos.d]# dnf config-manager --set-enabled fedora-cisco-openh264

Meanwhile, back on Fedora 27, H.264 video works fine in Firefox, without any
I'm reading documentation  for Fedora on a USB stick. The only option
to have a portable fedora on a stick seems to be by creating an overlay
FS and this certainly leads to getting out of disk space at some point.
I would really like to create Fedora on USB that I can plug anywhere and
work off it.
I was thinking that perhaps I can just install regular fedora on a USB
stick like I would do on a hard drive. Then it can be updated and used
just like any other Fedora machine. Perhaps disable persistent logging
and swap so that flash memory doesn't wear out.
One issue I presently know about is dracut. It creates by default images
that only support a specific hardware. i.e. if I install kernel on a
machine with an nforce disk controller, it will put in intird only that
module thus Fedora will not boot on a machine with AHCI controller.
Maybe this wouldn't matter when all things are on the USB drive but then
can there be a problem with different USB controller modules?
I was wondering if anybody tried that and has tips for greated portability.
Is there an alternative to skype which would also allow me to exchange

After upgrading to F27, I noticed that fonts looked "off". I made a
screenshot of Thunderbird and gnome-terminal displaying roughly
identical contents on Fedora 25, 26, and 27. The older two releases are
identical, but F27's fonts (both fixed-width and variable-width) appear
to be the same width as they were previously, but taller. Characters
like monospace 'o' used to be round and are now oblong. Everything
seems slightly heavier as a result of the additional pixels. Does
anyone know if this change was intentional? Personally, I think it's
worse than before.
Since March 08, I've received 11 messages from this list that appear empty, including 2 so far today. I have received a few (less) not empty, none today and 3 yesterday. What's causing this problem, and how do I fix it? My e-mail client is Thunderbird 52.5.2.
I will occasionally check the Fedora Hyperkitty for replies.
I'm having to replace my 5-year old desktop printer. Like any good project, I start with requirements!
1. desktop printer.
2. the manufacturer provides real support for the printer running on Fedora as well as windows-7.
3. has printing, scanning, and copying.
4. color and black-and-white, colors are correct when printing from Fedora as well as when from windows-7.
5. at least 600 dpi.
6. USB cable connection (not ethernet or wi-fi) between printer and workstation's tower.
7. either laser or LED, not ink-jet (I'm in a very low-humidity climate).
I am especially concerned with requirement #1, and that's why I'm asking this list. What fulfils all the above requirements?
Support needs to be more than simply providing a driver for me to download. The at least 600 DPI has to be real, not merely "effective", "simulated", etc. My now dead printer, a Xerox Workcentre 6015, claimed either 1200x1200 or 1200x2400 resolution, but I only got 600 real dots per inch, both in windows-7 and in Fedora. When printing from Fedora, colors were not even close, but were ok when printing from windows-7.
Which is better overall: laser or LED?
Thank-you for your advice.
I just did an update from F25 to F26 via dnf. After it boots, I can no
longer start gnome terminal (nothing shows). If I ssh into the machine and
try it remotely, I see the following:
(process:3586): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
Error constructing proxy for
org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling
StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached
So it looks like there is a locale issue in my update. Does anyone know
how to fix this?
I've updated my OS a few times now and it would appear that I am still

That link doesn't say how to switch to Wayland, though. When I click
on the gear icon at the login screen, I only have "Gnome" and "Gnome
Classic" as options.
Any hint on how to enable Wayland?
