Fedora18 - Connect to server doesn't show recent server list

0 votes

I have two F18 systems.

1) when I open Connect to server I see the list of recent connected server and I have also the Explore button
2) in a fresh installed system I don't have the server list and also explore button is missing

Both system connect each other fine with smb or sftp. What am I missing??

the only difference is the system 1 runs Gnome 3 while system 2 is running gnome in fallback mode due to a poor video card
Which one fails to connect?
number 2, with Gnome in fallback mode. But connection works fine, the  only problem is the missing list of servers (that are usually stored).
No, sorry; I don't use Gnome. However, now we know that it might be  something related to fallback mode.

For some reason, there are times when I log into the system and it simply won't load the desktop. The GDM shows me the login prompt, I select my username, enter my password, and it says 'Logged In' with the
little green checkmark next to it. But it just sits there. It doesn't load the desktop and the only way to get to the desktop is to restart the system and log in again.

This happens with no rhyme or reason. Just 'sometimes' and always at system boot.

I'm running F18, fully patched, with XFCE as the DE.

I have upgraded a pc from fedora 18 to 19, and I am left with an ugly grub2 boot loader. So, I have removed packages grub2, grub2-tools, erased /etc/default/grub, re-installed them, and run:

grub2-install /dev/sda grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

But grub still has no theme. Package grub2-starfield-theme is installed though. When I reinstalled grub2-tools, no /etc/default/grub was created. Is there a reason for that?

Today I issues a fedup-cli network 19 command. At the end of procedure that ended right when rebooting I get

Bad news:
I get a black window if I login as any user with a fedora logo on the bottom of screen but I can use tty and then issue a startx

Good news
after issuing startx my old video card (Geforce FX5200) works fine with Gnome 3.

Why do I have only F18 kernel??

In Fedora 17 and before, I could successfully replace lxdm with slim just by uninstalling one (lxdm) and installing slim. Doing so in Fedora 8 does not "work". By that, I mean that I do not get the graphical
display with slim: instead, I get a text prompt and I have to login with password, following which I have to type startx. Following a load of text I am then put into the LXDE desktop screen.

What exactly do I need to do in F18 to get back the "old experience"?
