At last, Google Chrome Browser installation by GNome Software finished without problem!

It is a fresh installed Fedora 24 x64 workstation. Software version is 3.20.3

The same for Fedora 23, 22, 21 all failed - waiting for the Software to process the downloaded package never finish (more than 1 hour).

This is progress.

What happens with software versions & Fedora 24?

Wireshark latest stable version, according to wireshark.org, is 2.0.4. But when I install wireshark-gtk, I have development version 2.1.0. Why?

Then, with RPM Fusion (I know Fedora isn't responsible of RPM Fusion, but is of Wireshark), VLC 3 is distributed, while VLC 2.2.4 is the latest stable version according to VideoLAN. Again, why?

+Rex Dieter I wondered if there was specifical reasons and where they could be discussed. I don't think packagers just send a development version (that upstream developers basically says it's not stable yet, otherwise it would be a stable release) without saying why.

Usually stable means latest stable or earlier, and not to get a beta or alpha software. If there's reasons I'm fine with that but if it's a mistake I would send a bug report or something.

+alex diavatis Just installed blackscreen. And I am loving it. You are right. I blackscreen is better and because it is open source, someone may add GUI command shortcuts like this one on black screen some day.
I am going to use black screen until something superseed its functionality.

+Google
Bad news Lollypop users, after "Google Web API", "DuckDuckGo API" is now restricted.

So, Lollypop 0.9.111 is broken, will release tomorrow a 0.9.112 fixing the issue (Using +Google Custom Search API).

But this API has limitations (100 searches a day)... So you will need to setup a custom API key.

Please +Google don't be evil, remove restrictions for «Free Software», I can't pay more than 2000$ for my users and getting an API key is a pain for them!

Cool but I must say that broken Arch Linux is very rare moment. And Fedora as headless workstation has been perfect but battling with third party repos is depressing. Same applies to packaging all needed software which is mostly available in Debian contrib/non-free repos. And Fedora has been very heavyweight if we are talking about minimal installs which are handy for some testing. Same time, Fedora work in some areas is truly outstanding.

Hi,

I would like to improve my system security, and I would like to add extra root password ask when I plug in usb devices. How can I do that? This can be an RFE at assigned applications where gnome wants to know what to do when a new media is plugged in?

Thank you, I hope this will help me to prevent tampering when I leave my laptop at events at desks. Now, I need to replace my screensaver either, or I add bluetooth proximity perhaps. TY for help.

Use GNU style params. Longer but easier to read and understand.

Hey guys, I am using custom shortcuts like this one: gnome-terminal --geometry=150x50+555+0 --command="mc" to have a quick access to Midnight Commander or terminal.

However, I'm using dual monitor setup and whenever I open a new window like the one above, it opens on the left-most screen, which is currently the side screen and I would like the window to open on the main one.

gnome-terminal has a “--display” option, but I am unsure on how to use it and wether it can do what I would like to do.

This issue also affects windows launched from the application menu.

Any advice on how to control on which screen windows open by default?

+Adam Williamson Yes, my “main” display is properly set to primary and the secondary to secondary, they even have the correct numbers (1 and 2), but the windows still open on the secondary monitor. But thanks :)

Upgrade to fedora 24 few days ago.
Upgrade was 100% successful (and easy!) with rpmfusion, google, folkswithhats and other extra repos included.
Super happy :)

A small issue with docker repo.
"https://yum.dockerproject.org/repo/main/fedora/$releasever/" does not work in 24 because (still) there is no 24 repo.
Easy work around to hardcode repo url to 23.
