Gnome 3.12/3.14: how to define default keyboard layout

Hello

I'm using Fedora 20 with Gnome 3.12 from Copr repo. I've found one bad
regression in latest gnome versions. There is not possibility how to set
default keyboard (I use "us" and "cs"). It seams that it use last state
(even after reboot and new login). This is even worse when I set 
"Allow different sources for each window" 

I've just tested Fedora 21 Alpha with Gnome 3.14 and there is the same
problem.

In Cinnamon (Linux Mint 17) there is possible to choose
      ( ) New windows use the default layout
      ( ) New windows use the previous window's layout

Is there any possibility how to define it?

gnutls, openssl and compiling mutt

Does it make any difference if mutt is compiled with '--with-gnutls'
enabled or with '--with-openssl' enabled.

Mutt (Fed20/21/Rawhide package) shows that '--with-gnutls' is used.

I ask because I have no problem connecting to my ISP Ziggo
with mutt when using Fedora.

With the following in .muttrc:
  set ssl_starttls = yes
  set smtp_url = "smtp://volovics <at> ziggo.nl <at> smtp.ziggo.nl:587
the TLS connection is established successfully and I am asked to 
accept the certificate. Everything works OK from then on.

But this does not work on a MacBook Pro with OsX Yosemite.
I use the Homebrew mutt. This mutt is compiled with '--with-openssl',
linked to 'openssl-1.0.1j'.

Using the same .muttrc file I use in fedora the TLS connection
'aborts' and I get the error message:
"SSL failed, I/O error. Could not negotiate TLS connection".

The openssl-1.0.1j from Homebrew seems to be the same as in 
Fedora Rawhide though I have not checked all the patches.

(Of course mutt in Fedora is compiled with gcc and the Homebrew
 mutt with LLVM Clang. Ziggo seems to be using TLSv1)

Closing port 631 from other computers


Greetings.

After the recent security incidents I am trying to increase the security
of my computer by closing unnecessary ports from outside world.

The only listening port in my system right now is port 631 (ipp), as
"lsof -i | grep -i listen" reports:

************************************************************************
cupsd     2349   root   10u  IPv4  37790      0t0  TCP *:ipp (LISTEN)
cupsd     2349   root   11u  IPv6  37791      0t0  TCP *:ipp (LISTEN)
************************************************************************

I tried disabling cups services, but then printing stopped working.

So ok, I need a connection from my computer to port 631 for
printing. But that port should be closed from all other computers. At
the moment it is open to the outside world (10.13.3.247 is the address
of my computer in LAN):

************************************************************************
[jarmo <at> localhost ~]$ nmap -sT 10.13.3.247
Nmap scan report for 10.13.3.247
Not shown: 999 closed ports
PORT    STATE SERVICE
631/tcp open  ipp
************************************************************************

I tried to close the port using firewalld. But the port does not seem to

iptables adding rules not in /etc/sysconfig/iptables

These are the rules being added that I do not care for:

# iptables -L -n
Chain INPUT (policy DROP)
target     prot opt source destination
ACCEPT     udp  --  0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0            udp dpt:53
ACCEPT     tcp  --  0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0            tcp dpt:53
ACCEPT     udp  --  0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0            udp dpt:67
ACCEPT     tcp  --  0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0            tcp dpt:67

Why is this taking place?
I do not have any other superuser script that would do this.

smplayer nagware

I thought I'd escaped from this sort of crap when I shifted to Linux,
all those years ago.  I've just started up smplayer and got a pop-up
saying "you can support SMPlayer by sending a donation or sharing it
with your friends," with buttons to donate with paypal, and so something
with facebook or twitter.

uzbl & twm: geometry issue

Hi, list!
I'm trying to configure my twm installation. According to [1] I've created .Xclients in my home directory with the following content:
XCLIENTS_D=/etc/X11/xinit/Xclients.d
if [ "$#" -eq 1 ] && [ -x "$XCLIENTS_D/Xclients.$1.sh" ]; then
    exec -l $SHELL -c "$SSH_AGENT $XCLIENTS_D/Xclients.$1.sh"
fi

# Failsafe.

# these files are left sitting around by TheNextLevel.
rm -f $HOME/Xrootenv.0

# Argh! Nothing good is installed. Fall back to twm
{
    # gosh, neither fvwm95 nor fvwm2 is available;
    # fall back to failsafe settings
    [ -x /usr/bin/xsetroot ] && /usr/bin/xsetroot -solid '#222E45'

    if [ -x /usr/bin/xclock ] ; then
    /usr/bin/xclock -geometry 130x130-5+5 &
    fi
    if [ -x /usr/bin/xcalc ] ; then
    /usr/bin/xcalc -geometry 200x250-1710+780 &
    fi
    if [ -x /usr/bin/xterm ] ; then
        /usr/bin/xterm -geometry 80x50-50+170 &
    fi
    if [ -x /usr/bin/uzbl-tabbed ] ; then
    /usr/bin/uzbl-tabbed &
    fi
    if [ -x /usr/bin/twm ] ; then
    exec /usr/bin/twm
    fi
}

Everything works fine except that when twm is loading I have to point with mouse click where uzbl-tabbed browser window should be placed.
Is there any way to configure an automatic window position? If I'm trying -geometry option it doesn't start at all. Why is that?
TIA

lto/xfs filesystem recover.

I have a xfs filesystem (4 drives) and one died /dev/sdc1. It was used for backup and trying to recover one directory. Any ideas would be great. I was able to drop the volume that died and have a pv of 3 now, but getting lvm to recognize (create a dev) is not happening

parted /dev/sdx
mklabel gpt
mkpart primary xfs 1 -1 (sometime xfs doesnt work until the xfsprogs are installed and reboot)
set 1 lvm on

do this for each drive.
pvcreate /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 /dev/sde1
vgcreate backup /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 /dev/sde1
lvcreate -L 9T -n backuplv backup
mkfs.xfs -L backuplv /dev/mapper/backup-backuplv
/dev/mapper/backup-backuplv /xfs xfs   (in fstab)

any ideas welcomed.

Is there a "real" 3d desktop for Fedora?


This talk about desktop in the no-maintenance thread got me thinking.  Some years ago when I was still using
Windows, I played around with a 3D desktop that had a cute virtual environment with 3d-ish rooms, etc where
you could stash applications.  Back in the day, it was called "3DNA."  I think the company who made it is dead
and it's not supported, but it's still downloadable, apparently, for Windows:

http://3dna-desktop.en.softonic.com/

It had a few fun themes -- a villa on the coast, the inside of a submarine, etc.  When I was playing with these
things there were a couple of other sorta-working attempts at this using game engines.

It was kind of toy-like, but I thought it was fun.

Is there anything like this for Fedora?  I'm not talking about the rotating cube stuff, but a working 3d environment...

rpm editor for MasterPdfEditor

Hi,

Is there a fedora rpm available/repo for MasterPdfEditor?

http://code-industry.net/pdfeditor.php

I would like to try this out, but thought that I would ask around for a rpm first before installing manually.
Searching on DDG did not yield a definitive answer.

Many thanks,
Ranjan

What happens to parent process, when a child process is created using vfork() and killed before calling exec

Hi, 

When a process is created using vfork() child process is created and starts running in the parent process
address space, until exit() or exec() is called. 

What happens to the parent process, if some one kills the child process before calling the exit()/exec()?

Thanks,
Kevin Peterson

rc.local not start at the boot

I would say that this thread is the continuation of a my preceding thread :

“selecting some kind of files using the resync command”


There I got help in order to make the backup of some my critical files.

Now I am able to backing up these files using a shell script from the line command.

But I would like also that this backup runs automatically when the computer boots.


I know that this task is performed by the rc.local file, in Linux.

Ed Greshko gave me a link about an announcement of Fedora concerning rc.local ....

there is wrote :

- - - - - - - - - -

The /etc/rc.d/rc.local local customization script is no longer included by default. Administrators who need this functionality merely have to create this file, make it executable, and it will run on boot.

- - - - - - - - - -


After I read this announcement, I create the the file rc.local and I made it executable:

[angelo_dev <at> zorro rc.d]$ ls -l /etc/rc.d/rc.local

-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 1262 Oct 27 12:18 /etc/rc.d/rc.local


But, doing some tests, I saw that the scripts stored inside rc.local not run at boot, ...on my computer.


I would like to have some advice concerning the way to manage tests, in order to understand because the content of rc.local is not executed at the start... and to obtain that scripts run at the boot
