If you want to install Handbrake via a yum repo, slaanesh has provided us with the rpm packages.
[root@localhost #] wget http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-handbrake.repo -O \ /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-handbrake.repo [root@localhost#] yum install HandBrake-gui
UPDATE: I’ve replaced the original fedorapeople repo with the new WORKING repo (non fedora hosted) [Jul 27, 2013 07:19 IST]
The highly awaited (really ?) Schrödinger’s Cat has managed to walk. Many reviews are out. But for me here it is..
- Gnome 3.8 is (yet again) memory hogging [Check attached pic]
- However Gnome 3.8 is getting better, refinements, small tweaks around making it look better, Alas! only if it could consume lesser memory.
- Gnome Classic – Only feels ‘classic’, It borrows all the good, the bad and the ugly from the gnome-shell. The memory hog continues [check screenshot]. The standard ‘Super’ (Windows) key works just as the gnome-shell, the interface that it paints is just the shell. I don’t know how does it make classic. Atleast memory footprint should’ve been reduced.
- Developer’s Assistant is new, Lets see how it could actually help developers.
- gstreamer-ffmpeg didn’t work!!! so I have to rely completely on vlc. there are these gstreamer1-plugins* which are being used. I searched for gstreamer1-ffmpeg, in-vain
I’m sure there is more to it. But as an end desktop-based user, I’m quite unhappy with Gnome and Fedora’s effort. Fedora is bleeding edge, ya.. don’t bleed till you die!
I’ll be checking MATE and Cinnamon as well. I’m sure Cinnamon too would be a hogger.
UPDATE: A complete update helped opening avi, mp4 files in totem.
A Saturday, new Ubuntu in the Downloads folder. What is it that you expect a linux user to do?
I installed Ubuntu 12.10 on Lenovo X201. I had 10.10 installed previously. I decided not to upgrade, but to clean install. It didn’t give me upgrade options anyways.
Post installation, here are some of the things I faced / enjoyed
Bootup time almost 25 seconds, it was around 15-20s for 10.10. A BIG downside for this release!
The Dash feels much quicker. However the gnome-shell still feels snappy as opposed to dash
I fuckin love the WebApps concept in Unity – That has actually made me stick to Unity.
Search in Unity still makes you click – as opposed to gnome-shell – Search the right string and hit Enter. That doesn’t work in Unity
I hated the original Alt+Tab utility in Unity, so installed Compiz Configuration Settings Manager (originally ccsm – so don’t search for that in apt). I replaced it with Static Window Switcher. It worked but then strangely started showing bugs of ghost windows moving in and out of the gray bar – little distracting, but didn’t break anything. (I was too careless to resolve conflicts – Was that the reason ?)
I adore the complete integration of Social World into the top-right corner of Ubuntu. You name it, Gmail (the Web App of that one is “क्या बात !क्या बात !” It shows the unread mails in Inbox, TagX, TagY, all in that top-right corner dropdown). O… continuing with integration – Facebook, Twitter, Chat, etc. However I’m an old time user of Pidgin, and have tonnes of logs in Pidgin which I don’t want to lose. I have no idea how to make Pidgin as the default integrated chat client into GNOME3 and Unity alike. – Help would do. Thunderbird too integrated nicely since the last release.
Ubuntu – Amazon Nexus – Naaah ! Disabled the “Online Search Results” from the “Privacy” application
I’m not a big fan of the Dark Ambiance theme, but with the other themes support in terms of UI elements, logos, etc.. I’ve got to stick with Ambiance atleast for now. I would’ve preferred the old GTK2 based Clearlooks theme.
Score: 7/10 – All the marks getting lost for the tacky compiz and inability to change defaults easily without installing other apps.
Take a look at some of its usages..

Wish I could code in Python
Recently I installed Fedora 17. Font rendering in Fedora is somewhat unoptimized, thanks to many patent clad algorithms for rendering fonts. But you if you want the best, follow the steps below
- Enable RPM Fusion Repos
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
- Install freetype-freeworld package
yum install freetype-freeworld
- Install gnome tweak tool
yum install gnome-tweak-tool
- Tweak font rendering
Open gnome-tweak-tool by typing “advanced settings”. Then set
Hinting = Slight
Antialiasing = Rgba
- Configure ~/.fonts.conf
Please save the attached file as .fonts.conf in your home folder ( ie. /home/michael/.fonts.conf ). Note the file name is .fonts.conf with a period in the begining.
Above will render fonts in the best possible way (Font Rendering is matter of preference – tweak around for yourself). Now any application, Google Chrome, Firefox, etc will render fonts in the same manner.
Some might wonder Natty Nehwal ?
