For some unknown reason, an HP laserjet I had been using for some years
suddenly stopped working with F28. After some investigation, I found the
Sep 14 14:32:20 nbecker2 cupsd: [Job 1202] PID 14791 (gs) stopped with
After more searching on the web, I found the answer was
lpadmin -p m750 -o pdftops-renderer-default=pdftops
apparently tells cups to use cairo instead of gs and this fixed my issue.
I wonder, I cannot boot Fedora without - amd_iommu=off - that's the
first issue. You guys?
I'm on Lenovo Ideapad E485 with AMD Ryzen 5 2500U & F28.
Second issue is - I use external monitor (via HDMI in "join" setup) and
if system went to sleep or HDMI got disconnect then laptop's display
would show something that I do not think many of you might have seen,
unless you are middle-aged at least - it's noise of that kind like in
old days tube TVs would show when signal was lost.
It looks very funny but also so very wrong :)
But when displays both are okey, and when I lock gnome(@Wayland) session
and unlock/login again then both screens would be ... kind of blinking,
infrequently. Reboot is needed to get rid of blinking.
I've tried kernels up to 4.18.5-200.fc28.x86_64
Care to share your thoughts?
many thanks, L.
I 'just discovered' (more likely forgot) that if I vnc to a system as a
user, even one in the Wheel group, I cannot mount any USB devices. A
system security feature, not a bug.
Is there a policy that I can add (and full steps for it) to enable a
specific user to have USB (mount drives and such) access when connected
I have switched a system to multi-user with:
systemctl set-default multi-user.target
Now I want to startup Xfce, and I can't.
I tried startx and startxfce4
How do I do this? Or how do I go back to gui target. at least temporarily?
I was forced to use KDE as opposed to GNOME due to other issues (see
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1585491) and I've had the following issue more often
Once a user logs out of KDE it might take a while (sometimes forever) to get a new KDE login window.
Other times I try a reboot from the console and it tells me there are still users logged in.
There are 3 people using the PC at home, and except me the other 2 are simply browsing the web.
I (try to) login in the evening and often have to reboot the machine.
This has been a complete reinstall from Fedora 27 and users folders have been wiped clean.
I am using sddm as login manager.
GDM is far superior, but its integration with KDE was poor.
Overall I can't wait to get Fedora 29 where I hope GNOME will work properly.
Below is the output of ps after the user jackie has logged out from KDE.
I see a lot of stuff still hanging there.
Is this what causes KDE not to present a new login window? or to prevent quick shutdown?

I've been trying to decrypt efibootmgr docs and I've
given up :-).
I keep getting the impression you can't examine any
efi boot info other than the one currently active
which you booted from.
What if I want to stick a removable disk into the
system and examine the boot parameters on it?
Any way to point efi tools to a completely separate
non-root disk that just happens to be plugged into
Just encountered a problem with my monitors not waking after dpms. I just
got an intel hades nuc with vegaM graphics. My previous system with intel
graphics and same monitors did not have this problem.
What package do I make a bugziila report on?
