Have you changed the BIOS boot setting so that you boot from the small PCI SSD, not the SATA one?

I don't know, sorry.

2018-01-11 06:10:12 +0000 commented answer Set mouse left handed but touchpad right handed

I think with "all users" they only meant all the users on this particular laptop.

Fractional scaling (100% - 125% - 150% - 175% - 200%) is still experimental in Gnome 3.26. So try it at your own risk. That said, it works fine for me (although it seems that Firefox looks a little fuzzy). You enable it by entering:

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['scale-monitor-framebuffer']"

(Found here.)

You can undo this by deleting the key value with dconf-editor, or by entering:

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "[]"

2017-12-27 07:29:57 +0000 answered a question Need GNOME Respin

The MATE ISO at dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins/ is the Mate respin. According to the Readme file at dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins/, the WORK ISO has the Gnome desktop. It seems to be the same version as the default one.

All ISOs are updated a couple of times during the lifetime of the release. However, if you want the most up date versions immediately, it's best to use the netinstall ISO: http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/27/Workstation/x8664/iso/Fedora-Workstation-netinst-x8664-27-1.6.iso which does not include any desktop, but you can choose which one you want during setup. It will then download the most recent files. Alternatively, just use the regular ISOs and update after setup.

Fedora 27 includes v 3.17.11. Check which version you have using the command line & dnf (more reliable, apparently the Software application and the dnf command do not share repository info)

dnf info hplip

will tell you which hplip version is installed. If it is indeed 3.17.10, then do

sudo dnf clean all

sudo dnf update

sudo dnf install hplip

and, while you're at it:

sudo dnf install xsane

These commands will refresh your repository information and update/install the latest available packages (if the latest packages are already installed, it skips them)

2017-12-19 18:08:33 +0000 commented answer Cannot get scanner to work in Fedora 27. HP Officejet 6600 all-in-one

OK -- the hp-check log says package xsane is not installed, which is odd because you said it is, and you even tried reinstalling it. Please check. Also, how do you connect to the device? USB? Wifi? If it is Wifi, it is best/easiest if the device is set to a static IP address in my experience. Have to admit I'm baffled, too, though.

2017-12-16 20:01:21 +0000 commented answer Cannot get scanner to work in Fedora 27. HP Officejet 6600 all-in-one

Sorry the answer didn't help. I can only think of two other things to try:

  • Make sure that the package libsane-hpaio is installed
  • Try running sudo hp-check and see whether the output shows any errors.
2017-12-16 06:56:20 +0000 answered a question Cannot get scanner to work in Fedora 27. HP Officejet 6600 all-in-one

You could try the command line hp setup program which is part of the hplip package that you should have already:

sudo hp-setup -i

Make sure your Officejet is connected and switched on before you run this. It will try to find the device and will ask various other questions. It doesn't actually ask about the scanner but with my different hp all-in-one devices, the scanner always worked afterwards.

(If this helps, you might end up with two printers but you can always delete one later.)

This seems to be a Network Manager problem. I'm now on Fedora 27 beta, the problem is the same. But luckily, the workaround here with the modification here works.

No reason to be ashamed. Everybody misses something sometime. The application menu is used by Gnome applications, but many others do not, Firefox being an important exception, which only has Quit in that menu.

There is an application menu called Files next to Activities in the top panel on the left when Files/Nautilus is open (not in the file manager window, but at the very top left of the screen). Open it, the option you want is the first one under Preferences - Behaviour.

I'm going the try the workaround here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84992#c16 and report on that. The most recent activity is from August 2017, so there is hope: https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/modemmanager-devel/2017-August/005668.html

2017-10-02 12:50:50 +0000 commented answer Sierra WWAN LTE Modem EM7305 does not work after Suspend/Resume

I should have looked before -- there already is a kernel bug, dating from 2014: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85391.

There are also bugs describing the same / a very similar problem here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/modemmanager/+bug/1326954 and here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=726613

2017-09-27 07:03:31 +0000 asked a question Sierra WWAN LTE Modem EM7305 does not work after Suspend/Resume

I need some help with getting my WWAN modem to work after Supsend/Resume.

This is a Fujitsu U904 with a Sierra EM7305 LTE WWAN modem running Fedora 26 with Gnome. It works perfectly when the laptop is freshly booted. However, it consistently stops working after a Suspend/Resume cycle. It is then either listed as "unavailable" in the top right menu or it is not listed at all (no Wireless Broadband entry).

I've also tried this with Live versions of Suse Tumbleweed and Ubuntu 16.04 and 17.10. It is exactly the same with these.

Below is the output from lsusb, usb-devices and debug output of ModemManager. There is an error at the very end of the ModemManager debug output which I suspect points in the right direction:

ModemManager[18077]: <warn>  [1506494462.458943] [mm-base-manager.c:167] device_support_check_ready(): Couldn't create modem for device at '/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-6': Failed to find primary AT port

I'd be grateful for any clues about what to do about this.

2017-07-29 07:39:32 +0000 commented question Disable a boot error/warning message?

Yes, I'd like to know how to suppress display of any and all messages during the boot process too, although in my case the messages I don't want to see are apparently systemd messages ("Created slice User Slice of gdm." and others -- about six lies at boot and shutdown).

I've looked and experimented with the information here and here but with no sucess.

If you are able to connect to a mobile hotspot then your Fedora setup should be fine and there's no need for additional drivers. I'd suggest checking the password for the router or disabling it temporarily to check whether you can connect without a password.

2017-03-12 11:05:18 +0000 answered a question MP3 file won't open even after installing codec's (Fedora 25)

Follow these steps:

sudo dnf install gstreamer1-plugin-mpg123 mpg123-libs gstreamer1-libav

(If you see a message that some of these are already installed, just ignore that).

If you get a message that some packages are not available, rpmfusion-free is not configured correctly. Do this:

sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

Alternatively, use the vlc player which has its own codecs and will play just about everything:

sudo dnf install vlc

2017-01-29 10:03:25 +0000 answered a question Why can't I connect to my VPN(PPTP)

I think this is due to firewall settings, not SELinux. See this post for a solution. You could experiment and first disable the firewall for a short test and then apply the firewall configuration changes and the kernel modules changes (if necessary).

2017-01-22 11:32:21 +0000 commented answer How can I restore folders with deja-Dup?

In order to do this in Gnome, you need deja-dup-nautilus installed. Also, instead of the file menu, you right-click. Finally, Deja Dup has to be configured to use the backup location you want to restore from (in this case, the one configured in the old Fedora 20 installation).
