I am not sure about gnumeric but surely you should be using OpenOffice?
OpenOffice includes facility to write pdf and many other formats.
And OpenOffice is open source and free.

Re: Why second panel is needed?

No no no no!!!
It is not true!
Please tell me that I am dreaming, or this is a badly composed 1st April 
joke!
I LOVE gnome THIS way, All the gnome users - no matter if they are 
computer geeks or not - that I know !!!all of them!!! like the second panel.

Please do not let the Windows Users to ruin EVERYTHING!!!
If they want WINDOWS they CAN use it.
They can re-arrange the menu and delete the second panel, etc.
If I do not like something  just DO NOT buy it, but I do not DESTROY it!!!

In most applications, you should be able to "print" to a PDF
file as if it were a printer.  Just choose File -> Print and
select "Print to File", "Create a PDF document", or whatever
it says.  The actual wording may vary based on version and
such.

what is best way to get help troubleshooting broken gnome?

I usually go to Fedora Forums with questions, but over the last year I
have more problems related to gnome.

I looked at the gnome user forum.  The subject headers seem so general,
and searching has been fruitless.

Is this an appropriate place to ask troubleshooting questions?

Thanks.

Not really, this list is intended for developer issues with Gnome. 
Check out the Gnome user forums here: http://gnomesupport.org/forums/

No it isn't.

"This list is for general discussion of GNOME. It is an appropriate  
place to ask questions about using GNOME."

accessing gnome file manager in order to write to media partition

Allow me to preface this help post with the admission that I am endeavoring to overcome my point and click mentality from windows, but I am challenged and trying to learn gnome.
I understand that I must get to the folders that hold the media partition and I do that by firing up gnome file manager as one option.
Please take me by the hand treat me like a child and tell me how to open gnome file manager. By the way I am 77 and part of my challenge lies there. Thank you awaiting your input

Hi Allen,

Gnome file manager is Nautilus, it is integrated into the Desktop; so if 
you open up, by double clicking, your home folder(the one with your name 
in it), this is using the Gnome file manager.

It has been deliberately made simplistic to operate, each folder has its 
own window.

But if you would prefer the Explorer style file manager, then you have 
to change the default preferences.
This is done in the "System|Preferences" menu. In 
"System|Preferences|File Management" menu item, select the behaviour 
TAB, then check the "Always open in browser windows" checkbox, close the 
File Management dialog and it will all work the way you are used to.

cheers

Robert
