how to set LC_TIME in gnome?

How can I set LC_TIME=en_DK.UTF-8 for all users, to get a sensible ISO 
date format in most programs?

Setting /etc/locale.conf doesn't help:

[mjc <at> xena ~]$ more /etc/locale.conf
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_TIME=en_DK.UTF-8

After rebooting, and launching a terminal in gnome-shell, LC_TIME is 
stuck at en_US:

[mjc <at> xena ~]$ locale | grep LC_TIME
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"

process tbl

Hey..

A test app does a fork, creates children processes.

Is there a way to view the procTBL "ps" to be able to see that a
process is a "child" process?

I know you can see when a child has stopped, but the parent is still
running.. but is there a way to see if there are "running" children,
some attribute that denotes i'm a child?

Or, is there some attribute that denotes the process has running children?

thanks

Audio level doesn't stay set.

Fedora 20 x86_64, gnome shell

I'm recording off my line input and it's coming in a bit hot so I'm using the gnome-shell control to drop it from 100% to "unamplified". It stays as long as the program runs but as soon as I close it (or when I reload the program, haven't checked) it resets to 100%.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Richard

A gmane mystery


I've been collecting redhat.fedora from gmane for several years,
but about a week ago I found that while I could read gmane newsgroups
I was unable to post to them - that is, my posts did not appear.

I was able to post to gmane.test, and could read these posts.
So I assume there is no problem with my From: or other headers.

I'm not sure if the gmane.linux.redhat.fedora.general is in fact
"mirroring" this mailing list?
And if so, whether the problem lies with the list
rather than the newsgroup?
I seem to be properly subscribed to the mailing list,
with my current email address.

Any enlightenment or advice gratefully received.

monitor arrangement

I just plugged in a 2nd monitor and it's working very nicely. I have it
set so monitor #1 (primary) is on the right and monitor #2 (secondary)
is on the left. I set this from ALL SETTINGS -> DISPLAYS.

On reboot, the system comes up with #1 on the left and #2 on the right,
not physically, but virtually. I have to move the mouse to the right on
the primary monitor to get it on the secondary monitor to the left.

How can I force the settings to be saved across sessions and boots?

Pleasant experience with yumex on F21 beta

Maybe because I am using Xfce instead of Gnome, but I doubt it.

First on startup, it does not go off and read the packages for update, 
eventhough this is diabled.  Just a bad behaviour on F20.

But it is just fast now.  In the past I only used yumex when I really 
needed to search for something.  I may be more inclined to use it now.

enscript duplex option works on F17 but not F20 or F21

These are the only versions of Fedora I have handy...

I use enscript to print IETF docs off in 2up/duplex:

enscript -2r --margins=:::45 -DDuplex:true -P HP8600 
draft-moskowitz-sse-00.txt

Worked fine last fall, then stopped working when I installed F20; I 
don't recall what I was running prior, I think F19.  What stopped was 
the Duplex feature.  I put up with this for the past year, no 2-sided 
printing.  So I tried it on the F21 beta today, and still no duplex.  
Then I remembered I have an Asus EE 4g Surf with F17 on it.  I set up 
the printer and this version DOES do duplex.

So some point, I think with F20 something changed, perhaps in hplip such 
that the Duplex option is no longer working.

Any ideas on how to figure this out?  Printing IETF docs nicely is not 
so easy.  They are exactly formated to page size, and you can't pay 
around with that so easily.  It took me a bit to figure out the margins 
to get it to fit.

Oh, Libre office, Firefox, and Thunderbird all do duplex printing just 
fine to the HP8600.  There is a nice dialog to select 2-sided printing.

Repo deleted

Ok, I recently installed the new to be release Fedora 21 on my server
(client been testing for months now).  I have rsync setup to mirror some
Fedora sites (fedora, beta releases, updates, updates-testing, etc..)
that I mirror every day, usually every 4-6 depending on which script
runs.  This has run flawelessly up until the server had F21.  It would
mirror, delete and downloaded what was needed just fine.

Now, for some reason, everyday it looks like the mirrors are all deleted
and packages downlaoded from scratch.  The only thing I can find that
seems related is when I do a yum update (client side mostly, and I have
the mirrored dir's mounted via nfs, as is same as when was on F20), it's
after that it seems the dir's get deleted.  And I don't mean the dir
itself, but the contents of them.

For example, I have /rsync/fedora-test/ as my prerelease dir and all the
branches of F21 (release, updates, updates-testing, rpmfusion stuff) are
in there.  All of the dir names are listed as always, but the sub's are
removed and then redownloaded again.  I have tried 2 different mirrors
and both happen the same.

It's like when yum tries to upgrade (and it may be when I do a yum clean
all), then something happens to the dir's (and it may not be exactly
that, but right after) then next time rsync checks, it downloads it all
from scratch again.  I can say, up to the point of it downloading again,
before that, when rsync checks the mirrors, it only deletes/downloads
what was changed, not the whole thing.

I don't get it nor can find what is happening.  Wondering if the
harddrive itself is going bad somehow, as the rsync/mirror stuff is on
sep HD and mounted that way from install?  

Any thoughts on what to look for, or any other details to show you or
give you that might help decide what to do or how to do it?

Guest OS on VBox and key bindings

Is there a way to alter key bindings so that key sequences
like Ctl+Alt+Fn  (n=1....9) can be intercepted by GUEST and
be able to see a GUEST virtual tty?

Thanx.

grub : how to edit grub config by command / script ?

I am using CentOS 6 and grub 0.97

1.  Launched a Virtual Machine (VM) with CentOS 6.   (This step is done.)

2.  After the VM comes up,  copy latest kernel and initrd from remote
server to /boot
     through a script present at /etc/init.d/ (This step is done)

3.  How to edit grub config file either by command or by script (but
not manually), to update
     the new kernel and initrd so that next time it boots up with the
new kernel  ?

Thanks
Santosh

Somewhat OT, encryption question


I was thinking about the infamous "code purple error" for HP computers, where Windows is keyed to the
hardware of the machine.  If you swap out a hard drive or change a card, it won't boot.  Apparently, there is a
"tattoo" of various hardware identifiers in static memory somewhere and the OS matches a code put in
during installation with that number.

For the HP issue, the fix is easy -- you just delete the command to check during boot up.  But, I was thinking
about this as an encryption option -- where one could encrypt files in a way that automatically
incorporates hardware information with the passphrase.  That way, if someone were to intercept a file and
knew your passphrase, they would still not be able to decrypt the file unless they did it on one specific machine.

Is there anything like that for fedora?  It would probably be pretty easy to hack the gpg source code to add a
few lines to append system information to the passphrase, but if there's something already around, I'd
like to play with it...
