when preparing for installing fedora on my new laptop, I stumbled across
this weird message on the download page
"Although this spin failed to compose for the final release, this test
compose contains fixes over the final content to allow for a successful
compose and should meet most users' needs. You can verify the test
compose image with a dedicated CHECKSUM file for 64-bit
To me this is totally confusing for new users and I don't really know if
it's a really good idea to show this message there. Of course I think
it's good to be honest and transparent, but this message needs a certain
level of understanding of the fedora release process and without it, it
just confuses people.
I mean who cares if the final compose failed, if updated images are now
available and are working? Is it mandatory to display such a message if
the final release is updated?
I really think we can do better, since the spins do look like an unloved
stepchild enough already.
All the best
Dunno what the actual widget name for this is, but in some list-type
views tooltips flicker like crazy. So far I've encountered two places to
- settings -> appearance -> style
- file manager -> devices/places/network
Hover the mouse on any of the entry for a moment, a tooltip should
appear but instead it flickers fast enough to be unreadable.
This didn't happen in F28. No idea which library to blame so reporting
here first before going to bugzilla...

I just upgraded from Fedora 28 to 29 and Xfce 4.12 to 4.13.
The background colors of my panel one and panel two have some dark
background color, making them hard to read, especial the date and time.

Far left of panel 2 on the bottom
How do I adjust this?
Computers are like air conditioners.
They malfunction when you open windows
Had a customer with Fedora 28 that could not view videos on
the web wit Firefox. Turned out Flash player was missing.
So a quick rip to my notes and OUT OF DATE! So Google it is
and OUT-OF Date too! Folks need to date their articles!
Finally found a article that actually worked and was not
out of date:
And my notes are now updated.
You would think folks would have stopped using Flash by now
and moved to HTML5, especially with all the tables out
there but ...
