I've just installed FEDORA 16 on my IBM LENOVO THINKPAD T60, works perfectly, and it's very fast! Suprising, because THINKPAD is almost five years old notebook.
I'm writer and screenplay writer, I was UBUNTU fan, I was "consumer" of Ubuntu for over five years, but, to be honest, I find very difficult (perhaps I didn t wrote last word cor.
to work in Fedora. I want something to ask here, you, and I hope you will respond me in a short time. (Sorry for my poor language, well I am Serb from Bosnia
and hate Srbs... just kidding.
Well, i installed Fedora, everything went perfect; I started UPTADE SOFTWARE - very similar to Ubuntu - but my conection went out, so I restared UPDATE... So far, everything is ok.
1. I am wondering why I can make, for eg, new folder on desktop "surface"? or why I can't find OpenOffice package in let s call it like that, Fedora repository (add/remove software app);
2. What is X WINDOW anyway? Don t understandit at all.
3. What about desktop. How come FEDORA uses Gnome etc. and I can't make folder on desktop or copy something on desktop surface (I mean, I can put copy and make folders in folder Desktop... but) I would like to see some of my fav apps on desktop...
4. Well my OS is fresh and I didn't touch anything. I am planing to remove some software that I don't really need / like: Firefox, MoviePlayler. I'd like to put VLC etc.
And my final question is going to be very, very hard... I found this on the Internet www.maconlinux.org/
And I don't know how to install it! Can somebody be so kind to reffer me to some texts or explain to me step by step what should I install on Fedora to install MacOnLinux (I am using some free distraction writers from MAC OS, such as Ommwriter), because every time I try to compile .tar.gz... in terminal he answers me that something is wrong with the frame or header or something like that... Is there any WIZARD
like in ****** Windows
to instal it. (I red about Yast in OpenSuse, but...).
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
If is somebody interesting in making linux only for writers, screenwriters, stageplay writers I will voluonture as copyrighter... something minimal, lightweight etc.
After everything you red in my post, is there any important step (besides my questions) that I should make from now. Untill you people answer me I will only use FireFox
in Fedora 16.
THANK YOU ALL ONCE AGAIN AND SORRY FOR MY POOR ENGLISH ONCE AGAIN!
Looking forward for your answers!
