2018-04-19 00:24:44 -0500 asked a question mendeleydesktop dark theme

Hi, I hope its ok to ask about closed-source software here.

I am using mendeley desktop to organize my papers. Problem is it a qt app, which does not go well with my dark theme. I am following this SO question to force mendeley to use my GTK theme (adwaita-dark) but it does not show any change.

I have also tried to use qt5ct, but it gives even worse result, as you can see in the screenshot: image description

Do anyone ever tried to change the theme of mendeley? Any idea how I can do that?

Hi, In f27, android-studio 3.0 and 3.1 was working fine including the emulator. I have recently upgraded to f28 and now, I am getting error while starting the AVD (nexus 5x).

The errors are:

Emulator: libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast 
Emulator: Process finished with exit code 139 (interrupted by signal 11: SIGSEGV)

I have checked many options, but nothing solves the problem. Any idea please?

2015-05-13 08:31:56 -0500 asked a question gnome-terminal inactive when in ssh and network changes

Hi, When I am in a ssh'd terminal, and network changes (wireless to wired etc) the gnome terminal become unresponsive. I would expect a "broken pipe" error and the terminal back to my local machine. but it still stays (show) in the ssh'd machine and remains unresponsive. The only option is to kill the tab using close button.

Is this normal? Can I make it back to local machine once the network is broken?

2014-04-10 05:41:14 -0500 asked a question switch to nvidia for a web-based game

Hi, I am using a hybrid-graphics laptop:

$lspci|/usr/bin/grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 540M] (rev ff)

And I have also installed bumblebee (with the NVIDIA proprietary drivers)

$ rpm -qa|/usr/bin/grep bumblebee

optirun is working fine. Also, for games installed in the machine, i can run optirun <game-name>.

But I have no idea how to enable nvidia while playing a game from web (eg facebook games).

Kindly help.

2013-11-16 16:12:52 -0500 asked a question high temperature in AMD based laptop

hi, one of my laptop have AMD RAEDON

$lspci|grep VGA
00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Trinity [Radeon HD 7640G]

it continiously shows high temperature even when very little job is running. for example, the load :

top - 21:57:30 up  1:16,  2 users,  load average: 0.76, 0.89, 0.77
Tasks: 165 total,   1 running, 164 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
%Cpu(s):  5.8 us,  4.5 sy,  0.0 ni, 88.7 id,  0.2 wa,  0.6 hi,  0.2 si,  0.0 st
KiB Mem:   7558420 total,  2099340 used,  5459080 free,    63428 buffers

yields temperature:

$ sensors
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +74.0°C  (crit = +255.0°C)

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +70.0°C

                       (crit = +100.0°C, hyst = +99.0°C)

is there any wayout? in my main laptop with hybrid graphics (intel+nvidia), this problem was solved by bumblebee. what is the alternative for AMD?

2013-10-13 05:49:46 -0500 asked a question rhythmbox album/artict artwork

Friends, I am using rhythmbox for long. Rhythmbox(RB) for me, never fetches the artwork for me. If I do it manually, then It is ok. But RB claims it fetches artwork from, which does not happen to me. Recently I tried musique and found this simple app do fetch the artwork correctly from

Am I missing something? Do I need a login for RB to work(musique can do without this)?

2013-10-11 05:28:32 -0500 commented answer Fedora 18 Google Chrome

roses, welcome to world of fedora. I assure you, its a beautiful desktop. keep few things in mind though. 1) f18 is a older edition. If you are installing it, use f19(I started using google-chrome from f19, and have not have any problem). 2) you are messing up fedora with gnome desktop. this two are SEPARATE. If you really wish, can you kindly post your problem as a NEW question, so that I can reply and redirect you to the proper links?

2013-09-20 03:46:34 -0500 commented answer ms live mail/imap from goa

FranciscoD_: I think there is a general problem with goa's IMAP & SMTP setting. As I have failed to connect to my aol as well, I have opened a bug in gnome bugzilla (Possibly best way to contact Debarshi and other developer.)

2013-09-19 11:02:17 -0500 asked a question ms live mail/imap from goa

Hello friends, MS has recently released imap capability for (live mail)

I tried to put that in goa (I am trying to access all my mails from goa, rather then creating account for goa and evolution separately.)

But, goa' windows live does not access mail, it only access chat and documents. So, I tried to access it both via MS exchange and Other. It is not connecting.

Is there any way? (I have managed to connect to imap from evolution)
