    openSUSE Leap 42.1 - Gnome 3.16.2 gnome-software (Appstream Software Repostitory) No Application Data Found. Hi, Is there a way to rebuild this data base? Apparently the Ubuntu folks stumbled upon a fix for this by running the following: Code: Can you please run `sudo appstreamcli refresh --force --verbose` and `appstreamcli status` and paste the output somewhere? This rebuilt the db. Is there a similar command for zypper?

  • Issue#1030829: Linux - Gnome shell extensions download but do not install

    I have a 32-bit and a 64-bit laptop, both running Fedora 24 and using Firefox. I am trying to install the same Gnome shell extensions on both. The 64-bit machine downloads and installs correctly, but the 32-bit machine only downloads. For example, I locate the 'Removable Drives Menu' extension in Firefox on both machines ( I click on the On/Off switch to turn it 'On'. On both machines, I am asked whether to download and install and both machines then download something, according to the wireless activity LEDs. On the 64-bit machine, the extension is now installed and functioning, but on the 32-bit machine the extension is not installed. The 'On/Off' button on the web page on the 32-bit machine is still 'On', but if I leave that page and return to it, the 'On/Off' switch is 'Off' again. On the 32-bit machine, I can repeat the loop with the same (lack of) result. What am I doing wrong? Any help will be gratefully received. Do

    I have been preparing to perform a major upgrade and HDD replacement at the same time. While waiting for the hardware to arrive, I have been downloading and burning all the iso's that I expect to need. I have downloaded the openSuse Leap X86-64 iso twice and the boot from dvd fails at the same place each time. -checksums ok, -media boots and verify media ok when done in a different machine -openSuse 13.2 i586 DVD gets to the partitioning part of the install at which point I bail out. When booting from the Leap x64 DVD there is a green progress bar that runs along the bottom of the screen. It gets stuck when that reaches 100%. I left it for 20 minutes last night just in case it was a bit slow. Does any one know which point in the start up this or is there any way to get some verbose messages up on the screen so that I can see what is happening? At this point I am suspecting that something in my machine does not like 64 bit even though the CPU (Pentium D 820) and chipset (intel

  • Issue#538825: Linux - how to add users with limited access: no shell, chroot, etc.

    I'm setting up an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS server and in the process of creating some user accounts we need. In the interest of security, I want to limit these accounts to the bare minimum they need to function. I don't have much experience setting up users and groups so I could use some help. We have a need for 3 basic types of user: * PartnerUser - needs to deliver files via FTP to our machine. Should be confined to only their home directory and should NOT have a shell. * CronUser - user under which we define cron jobs for the cron jobs of our web site. No one should be able to connect via SSH as this user, but the user must be able to execute cron jobs and should be constrained to the /var/www directory. * DevUploadUser - a single user with permission to upload source code for our web application via SFTP. This user should not have any shell access and should be constrained to /var/www folder. Can anyone suggest a scheme to accomplish these objectives? I've been reading about chrooting an

  • Issue#552451: Linux login shell not changing for GNOME terminal in CentOS 7

    I'm having trouble changing my login shell when I'm using GNOME terminal in CentOS 7. I want to use fish instead of bash, and I've installed fish into my machine. I've already added "/bin/fish" to "/etc/shells", and have also typed "chsh -s /bin/fish [my user name]" in order to change the shell permanently. However, every time I open up a new terminal, I get bash as my login shell. What is more confusing is that when I type "echo $SHELL", it give me back "/bin/fish"! Do I have to reboot my system to change my login shell permanently, or is this an issue? If so, does anyone have a clues to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!

  • Issue#632004: Linux - openSuSE Leap 42.1 static IP address won't ping router; all settings look correct.

    Hello all, I've spent the better part of this day trying to find answers and Google just isn't what it used to be, at least not for me. I have a Lenovo P50 for work, and I put openSuSE on it. I have working WiFi and Ethernet adapters, and can get on the Internet just fine on either as long as I use DHCP. Unfortunately, as I am a network administrator at work, I often need to manually set an IP address for my machine. I did this once this morning, successfully, and was able to administer a small managed 10-port DLink switch. However, I later tried the same methods to administer a Cisco 5508 AP controller and could get nowhere. Thinking it was the controller or my link to it, I reconnected to the production network and gave myself an appropriate address for that subnet, trying different addresses when it didn't work (and verified with nmap ping scan that each one wasn't in use beforehand). Nothing allowed me to ping anything other than localhost. I looked up on Google to make sure
