2016-09-16 03:57:57 -0500 commented question Is there a dnf or yum command to show the size or number of applications available by default for Fedora and Centos?

Hello Masteroman, it is merely for curiosity and study purposes, not for searching applications. Its' good to know for example how many packages are available in Centos vs how many packages are available in Fedora. And I am aware I can compile applications myself if I know how. If you do know how, please have a look at one of my questions in regards to Linphone. The question is about building from source, I would appreciate it if you could help with it.

It worked like charm.

2016-09-15 06:01:36 -0500 asked a question Is there a dnf or yum command to show the size or number of applications available by default for Fedora and Centos?

I read that there is such a command in Debian showing that around 37 k packages are available. I found it somewhere online but I forgot where. Is there any similar terminal command in fedora with dnf or yum in centos? Since this command would be very useful in Centos also since it has a more limited number of packages than Fedora.

2016-09-15 05:58:42 -0500 asked a question Any guidance on how to install Linphone 3.10.2 in Fedora?

Linphone is perhaps the only software that meets modern day standards, the only one recently updated, which is open source and fulfills Fedora packaging guidelines. By contrast Firefox Hello is being disabled, Jitsi packages and repository are not gpg signed, kinda old and not included in the official repositoris, Ekiga is outdated and requires post-installation port configuration. Yes there is Webrtc but it relies on proprietary web protocols to function such as non free javascrip in sites that use webrtc. And a desktop app would be nicer. Of course you can use Skype, Viber, the Google Talk Plugin, Google Chrome or Gmail in Chromium to make chat and calls but those are proprietary software. Unfortunately due to problems with building the belle sip which is a LInphone dependency, the latest version of Linphone is not included in Fedora. There is a copr repository "nucleo-linphone" which you can add to install Linphone 3.9 but it is 10 months old and Linphone 3.10.2 has not been built yet. So anybody will installing from source expertise can guide us to install this software directly from source?

2016-09-15 05:49:50 -0500 asked a question Ekiga gives a message about opening some ports after installation, how and why is that done?

Ekiga Softphone is the only free and open source software in Centos, and with Linphone, one or two open source software that can do video and audio calling in Fedora. Firefox Hello is being disabled in version 49. Yet when I start Ekiga, both in Centos and Fedora, I get a message about ports something. Has anybody successfully used Ekiga and what is the post installation procedure like to get it working? Or can the message be simply ignored sometimes and everything will work ok?

2016-09-15 05:45:56 -0500 commented answer How do you use pocket with gnome?

Hi, thanks for the answer, where did you find the section about pocket in gnome help? I have been unable to find it.

2016-09-13 17:35:51 -0500 asked a question How do you use pocket with gnome?

Gnome offers the option to add a pocket account in it's online accounts. But I am totally lost and unable to understand how to use this feature. Where are my saved pages? How does the gnome online pocket account help? Where are my saved pages synced? And how are they synced? And where do they end up? There is no guide and zero information online. I know for instance what you can do with a google account or an owncloud account in gnome, but totally lost with the pocket account. Can someone enlighten me on this?

2016-03-07 05:14:59 -0500 commented question What video editing software should I use for Youtube videos?

Maybe he did not formulate the question very well but it should not have been closed, it is not off topic. What he wanted to say, is, what video editing software is available in Fedora for video editing, and which one do you recommend? That's all. It is not too subjective.

2016-02-27 13:15:35 -0500 marked best answer What password size do you recommend for user and root in Fedora?

The installer considers a ten character password strong, sometimes a nine character password is also considered strong if it has a good mix of different symbols, and characters. Is this enough?

2016-01-31 11:30:06 -0500 commented question xfce desktop crashed on fedora 22 how to solve?

Have you tried upgrading to 23?

2016-01-31 11:29:11 -0500 answered a question login to Gnome on Wayland fails and related sessions linger

This is not a bug reporting site.. Fedora 23, implements wayland very well. Switch to 23. 21 support lifetime is ended.

Just disable UEFI in the settings. No big deal if you disable it.

Why did you format the SSD with GPT?

2016-01-31 11:24:36 -0500 answered a question [Sticky] How do I install Skype on Fedora?

In 23 dependencies are sorted automatically. All you need to do is download the Skype package for Fedora and double click to install it.

2016-01-31 11:23:31 -0500 commented answer [Sticky] How do I install Skype on Fedora?

Does it work on 23?

2016-01-31 10:45:12 -0500 asked a question I need some help with cd burning software

I burned two cd's, one using brasero, one using k3b. Brasero was very very slow, so I pulled out that cd, and inserted a new one and tried k3b. K3b was also super slow. Anyway I left it on to see what will come out. After 3 hours and a half the cd was burned and it was fine. I tried to see if I could find any writing speed/burning speed settings in Brasero but I could not find any. The same with K3b. Is it perhaps a problem with my system or a bug with these applications? What's your experience?

2016-01-22 16:55:23 -0500 marked best answer Why is oracle virtualbox not included in the Fedora Software Center?

Oracle Virtualbox is free and open source, released under GPL Version 2. In order to install it, one has to install these dependencies as outlined in this article installing virtualbox on fedora 19/20. But wouldn't it better to have it working out of the box and including it in the official Fedora repositories?I mean have it be in the Fedora software center and have it install it's dependencies automatically sort of just like many other programs do. Or is there perhaps some issue with it's kernel modules or the packages it requires that cause difficulty to Fedora developers and testers? This question coming from a programming ignorant person.
