Fedora 18 on Dell XPS13

0 votes

Does anyone have any experience with F18 on a Dell XPS13 with the FHD 1080p display? What does this Full High-Definition 1080p mean anyway? I guess my question is: is this the real resolution or some
virtual resolution not obtained via linux.

I am interested in this because it claims to have a 1080 vertical resolution (not sure if this is accurate) in an Ultrabook.

Note that Dell sells this with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (for a price more than with MS Windoze).

1080p is 1920x1080, so you'll get your vertical resolution (albeit at the cost of very small pixels).

Thanks! So, this hoopla about FHD ("Full High Definition") is not just some made-up hoopla and really provides 1920x1080?

Does anyone have any experience running F on this ultrabook? Since Ubuntu has no issues, I doubt that this would be a problem, but I guess it does not hurt to check.

Is there a simple way of changing the font used by lpr to print out a text file,

We are developing internal software using MySql dB and are planning to use Fedora for the server.

The question is how do we know that this hardware (motherboard, CPU) really support Fedora version 18 or 19? We are looking at mobo from Asus or Intel or Gigabyte, but did not find firm answer. We did not find the info from mobo websites either.

The mobo that got our interest are the ones with H77 or Z77 or H87 chipsets.

Is there any URL for me to get the information we need?

The Sound Icon came up missing from System Tray after reboot, It is not even in Hidden Icons.
How do I get The Sound Icon back in System Tray ? If I click on Kmix from Menu it won't start and display Kmix. If I remember it was just after I did a Update.

I am designing an application for client-server. Client and Server both applications will be hosted on Fedora18. However, for client application, I need windows executable, so I installed wine but it’s not working.
