Since my Thinkpad's battery only lasts 40 minutes these days (and it's very hard to replace. the Twist is not a very good laptop) I got a new laptop, a Dell XPS 13.

I specifically ordered a model with was listed with intel wireless, as I did not want to replace the wireless card myself (and void the warranty).... and it arrived today with a broadcom wifi chip. Super annoying.

I called them and they said they don't actually have any model with intel wifi and no supplier in Israel even sells ones with intel, and that the listing in their website was an error...

So I'm going to just replace the wifi chip myself. Inconvenient, but there's no other solution.

The new gtk file chooser search thing was not working for me at all, and then I realized I previously configured tracker to not index my "Sources" directory where all the code I'm working on lives.

I still miss the type-ahead search functionality though...

No, it should fall back to a non-tracker-powered search when there's no index: if it's a removable device or a remote share, there will never be an index.

I'm probably doing something wrong, because after I calibrated my screen using a ColorHug, things that should be gray are now pink-ish.

I tried setting the CCMX tool and selected a model that is similar to mine, but now calibration keeps failing. I'm probably doing something wrong, but I have no idea what exactly.

gnome-shell 3.15.90 is absolutely beautiful. Kudos to everyone involved.

It is no secret that we've been interested in sandboxed applications for a while. It is evident here, here, here or here, to name just a few. What may not be widely known yet is that we have been working on putting together a working implementation of these ideas. Alexander Larsson has made ...

Trying to run "yum update" in Fedora 22 right now results in
Error: dnf-yum conflicts with yum-3.4.3-155.fc22.noarch

Running "dnf update" doesn't try to install dnf-yum at all.

weird.

I suspect dnf-yum is an addition to some comps group.  and yum's and dnf's notions of those seem to differ.

Rhythmbox on Feodra 22 (alpha), I guess someone was nostalgic to Windows 98

recent-ish GTK changed the filter-thing (find by typing the start of the filename) in the Open dialog to a full-blown search.

I don't like it.

The search is much slower on my machine, and it shows less relevant files from subdirectories. Even worse is that the search doesn't work on SFTP shares, which means when I want to find a specific file I can't use the search and I don't have the filter, so I have to manually scroll through a list of hundreds of files... I end up giving up on using a GUI app to edit the file and use vim instead.

I understand that my workflow is not a common one, and that it works well for most people, so I doubt reporting a bug about this is even worth it.

+Lapo Calamandrei One possibility: run the filename search first, and only when that's done start running a full-text search to add more results.

(And obviously it needs to never hang. :)

fedora-desktop-list used to have a (relatively) decent signal to noise ratio as far as mailing lists of big projects go, but every since Fedora Workstation became a thing the amount of noise in that list keeps increasing :/

Well, it was basically completely dead before that, and not very functional. Some noise is the price of having a signal at all....
