I had the same problem, but it was fixed sometime ago. Maybe you have a different scanner model. In any case, the two workarounds listed here may help temporarily until it gets fixed: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1502037#c5

2018-03-10 08:11:27 -0500 answered a question How to always show fedora boot splash during boot or shutdown?

I've managed to suppress just about all boot messages, as well as reducing the blinking cursor time, by editing /etc/default/grub, specifically the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX, to read:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rhgb quiet vga=current loglevel=0 systemd.show_status=0 vt.global_cursor_default=0"

People might say that loglevel=0 is bad because it largely prevents logging, but I don't mind.

After editing the file, when updating grub config, make sure to use the appropriate command for either Bios or UEFI systems (see here, although the main topic here is the timeout.).

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

2018-01-08 08:48:24 -0500 answered a question Gnome 3 150% Display Scaling

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 01:29:57 -0500 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 12:08:33 -0500 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 14:01:21 -0500 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 00:56:20 -0500 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.
