Dear IBUS don't steal CTRL+ALT+e shortcut in Gnome
I use terminator as my favorite terminal emulator, which uses the shortcut CTRL+ALT+e to open a new window (vertical split).
How-ever recently the key-binding is hijacked by the emojicon hipsters on GNOME to allow inserting emojicons.
To re-claim the key-binding, use
ibus-setup and head to the 'Emoji' tab to free the keybinding.
Fedora 29 not booting on Acer Aspire ES1-731
Got myself an interessting issue after installing Fedora 29 on an Acer Aspire ES1-731. After start it goes into an reboot loop, stating a cryptic message with phases BootOrder not found and grubx64.efi .
It turned out the Secure Boot has to be modified to allow the GRUB (Fedora Bootloader) to be 'trusted'.
Following the excelent intructions of Krallan on the Acer Community Forum got myself an working system again.
Cool, thanks Krallan!
PS: Press F2 during boot to get into the BIOS
ownCloud client disable update notification
For some reason the Fedora 27 ownCloud client is nagging me for more than 3 weeks about the fact that my version is not yet up2date. This is utterly useless on a package managed Linux system. Since they also do not provide Fedora 27 packages on their website there is no simple way of getting the latest version.
Lucky there is a way to turn it of the notifications
ownCloud documentation nicely describes how-to disable the update notification.
