Fedora19 scientific and boolean calculator

+1 vote

Does anyone know what happened to the calculator? I upgraded to F19 and now the calculator shows up like a 2.00 simple calculator.

The version in F19 (gnome-calculator-3.8.2-1.fc19) does not have any menus in the top bar. It also appears to be impossible to re-size. The version gnome-calculator-3.9.4-2.fc20 in Rawhide has an "Application" menu in the top bar which allows choice of mode, including "Advanced" (scientific) and "Programming" (Boolean). However, it also cannot be re-sized.

I cannot manage to get fedora 19 to start a vnc server on reboot. I have tried various approaches:

a) edit /etc/systemd/system/vncserver@:1.service It does not work. It kills any vncserver I am running at :1, but *never* starts a new one.
systemctrl status vncserver@:1.service reports the service as dead, but without any error message.

b) I wrote a small bash script that starts vncserver at :1, and set a cronjob on the user. The server runs ok when I run the script from the terminal (I can see gnome desktop in it), but gnome does not start from the cronjob. (I have even set a sleep of 30 seconds to delay the start of the vncserver). The vncserver starts, but it is empty.

Method b worked in fedora 18, but not anymore in fedora 19. What is the way to start a tiger vnc server at reboot for a user?

The login screen provided by lightdm (do I have this right?) on Fedora 19 is not as attractive as the one provided by Fedora 17 (not lightdm)? Is there any way to configure for a different image.

Booted machine from livecd image, and the gnome3 worked.

Used Fedup to upgrade an Fedora 18 setup to Fedor 19, and gnome3 doesn't work (Opps screen), but KDE and Xfce does.

Did a clean install from the DVD image of Fedora 19 to a new hard disk, and gnome3 doesn't work, kde regular doesn't work, kde failsafe works, and xfce works.

The machine has a nvidia geforce FX 5200 card, which I know is old, but that is what my classroom has in all 20 machines. So, not just a matter of getting a different card. Long ago was using the nvidia driver from there site, but they dropped support for the older cards, so had to switch to the nouvea driver.

Any suggestions, or just have to stick with xfce..

I have recently installed Fedora 19 on my computer, and am using Empathy for instant messaging.

One problem is that I cant see the date and time of the conversations in the Empathy screen, nor can I find an option in preferences to set this.
