Some helpful tips for Fedora Core 15

Posted: July 21, 2011 in Linux

1) How to add minimize and maximize buttons.

  • Run dconf-editor
  • Go to: desktop -> gnome-> shell- > windows
  • From your right side options double click on “buttons_layouts”. Erase it’s current text (which should be = :close ) and enter the below code instead:
:minimize,maximize,close

Source for this tip.

2) Adding “Shutdown/Power Off” and “Restart/Reboot” options into the menu.

The strange thing about GNOME 3 or Fedora Core 15, there is no “Shutdown” or “Power Off” and”Restart” options in the menu. It only provides “Suspend”.  Don’t ask me why, I am not even sure this is decided by GNOME 3 developers or the Fedora Core developers.

However, there is a way to add the options back. Just run the following command at the command prompt in root:

$> yum install -y gnome-shell-extensions-alternative-status-menu

Source here.

3) Samsung CLX 3160 (all-in-one) Printer
