More of the Hiatus Crap

It really becomes a challenge posting stuff here sometimes. Simply because I’d like to post more often but I run out of time and can’t seem to bring things together before I get swamped again. With regard to my incomplete Fedora 19 review, it’s probably going to rest where it is. I had two other parts but I’ve never been able to find the time to successfully edit them and bring them to something interesting or cohesive. So the two parts that are up here are going to be it. I took the plunge and subscribed to LWN. I’m actually…

Fedora 19 Review Part 2 – App Love

Despite having several different spins, Fedora’s flagship spin is the one that ships with GNOME as the default desktop environment. Admittedly a lot of what I’m going to be covering here pertains to apps which are specific to GNOME rather than Fedora itself. However since this is effectively the face of Fedora, it needs some discussion. Some of the apps that are going to be covered here are only going to get touched on briefly while a few others I’m going to nail down into quite hard. So without further ado, let’s get started! Files Files, previously known as Nautilus,…

Fedora 19 Review Part 1 – 30,000′ View

The review that I’ve been working on for Fedora 19 grew a little too large for me to put into a single post. So I decided that it would be a good idea to break it up into several posts that would hopefully be a little more sufficient. To kick things off, I want to start with my thoughts from getting it installed to a working desktop. By working desktop, I mean a desktop in which I haven’t done any modifications at all. Installation When Fedora 18 shipped, a lot of drama surrounded the release of a new iteration of…

Customizing GNOME Shell (As Far As I’ve Done)

I was really tossing up the idea of doing this over an audio tutorial or what but in the end I decided that it would be best if I just typed it out. I’ve had really bad luck with recording audio on Linux and it just doesn’t seem to get any better no matter what I do. One of the things that I really like about using Linux is the modular nature of all of the software on the system. That especially applies to the look and feel of the desktop environment. To some degree, regardless of which DE you…

Fedora 18 Post-Install Tips/Tricks

I wanted to share some things that I do after I install a Fedora system and some tips for getting by with your sanity intact. More specifically, these are steps that I follow after a fresh install and not an upgrade (I haven’t had a chance to use fedup yet). Keep in mind that this list is entirely subjective to your particular needs. Being a developer/media junkie, the packages and steps that I’ll go over here may not be to your liking or even something that you’d want to do at all. However I’m hoping that the steps would somehow…
