After being a a linux user for 5+ years, I finally found fedora that I gave some thought to make my main system, and gradually move to fedora. I have used Mandrake, Suse, Debian, Redhat and Gentoo, and due to some reasons, I didn't consider making all those something I can run and gradually move from XP. When I tested out Fedora inside my VMware, I am considering to have it as my main playground!
Due to some reasons, my wireless adapter failed to work on the latest FC2, so I installed FC1, and I am happy, as everything seems to work fine.
I have FC1, with gnome, and
yum update | upgrade -- all up2date.
My PC has the following:
p4 2.4 ghz
80 gb disk
nVidia 128Mb agp card
philips 17" flatorn
I have a couple of questions. All answers will be highly appretiated.
When I click at the User ScreenShots section, i see a lot of nice screenshots, and I would love to have some of those. Now, how do I theme my gnome ?
I would certainly like to upgrade my gnome desktop to support a higher resolution. My monitor supports a resolution upto 1400x1050, however i am getting a lower refresh rate. On XP, i get a 75hz rate on resolution of 1280x1024, and I would like some hints from the experts. My display card and monitor are probed properly.
I installed the rpm of desklets, and when I run it, nothing comes up. I see a daemon running, so I know it's working. For a test, I added "LTmbmon, a gDesklet that display hardware information from mbmon" , and the msg was "The sensor has been installed successfully. gDesklets is now able to use it "
I restarted gnome, even the computer, and i don't see any display .. duh!
I downloaded and tried SysInfo, but what i get is "Could not load sensor: /path/sensor .. an error occoured... sensor is broken or simply not installed"
I don't think i have any other issue at the moment. This much for my first post
Considering that i am writing this from inside a fedora gnome desktop connected to the net, I am quiet OK
Long live this community!
