I've updated the comps file in Fedora 20 to be more useful to application
developers, and bug reporters alike.
This makes "yum install @gnome-software-development" install:
- Command-line utilities like diffstat, valgrind, gdb
- GNOME developer tools like gitg, gtkparasite
- Additional libraries like clutter-gst-devel, polkit-devel
- And devel docs for GStreamer, webkit, glib and clutter
Please take a look over the comps-f20.xml file in:
And let us know if, as GNOME/Fedora developers, there's anything else
that ought to be installed by default for budding developers.
Not that this is for application development, not GNOME development itself,
so things like totem-pl-parser, grilo, or gnome-online-accounts' devel packages
are getting dragged in. Those should be pulled by "yum-builddep" instead, when
you hack on a particular package.

The lockscreen/login screen is the same grey texture. What Ryan is talking
about is the image used for the lockscreen sliding "shield".
The new GNOME shipped with fedora 20 has the awesome new ability to set
different backgrounds for both the lock screen/shield and the normal
regular desktop background.
Currently in f20 alpha TC4, we set the old f19 default background for
the desktop, and a completely different pink, fan style design for the
lock screen. IMHO, the defaults should behave the same as the f19,
setting the default background for both.
I just installed F20 to help with QA and Gnome3.9 is awesome! Thanks for
getting it updated. I notice a few changes, and therefore have a few
- How would one disable the notifications from the status menu and
change the empathy/online status? 3.8 used to disable notifications and
change status to "busy".
It's really useful when you're trying to work.
- What versions would the suspend fix come in?
- How would one set alt to meta in the up to date gnome terminal? I
can't find anything in the preferences/profiles.
I'm going to keep an eye out for updates and help test them out.
Join Fedora! Come talk to us!
Very interesting talk based on interviews with different Linux desktop users
on what they're using and how, with some interesting insight into why. I
love the user-focused approach.
(although aren't completely self-explanatory).

It's that time of the year again -- F20 is going into the Alpha freeze
tomorrow and new builds will have to go through Bodhi for verification.
The GNOME 3.9.91 release is coming as well, with a bit unfortunate
timing wrt. Fedora freezes. In any case, we'll handle the GNOME 3.9.91
builds together and file them as a single megaupdate in Bodhi.
There's a separate koji build target for the 3.9.91 builds and the
magical invocation is 'fedpkg build --target f20-gnome'. We're also
going to use the same spreadsheet system as previously, so if you want
builds to be included in the megaupdate, 1) use the f20-gnome build
target, and 2) list the builds in
Hey, as every cycle, we have a size problem with the desktop spin:
So, we need to do the usual excercise and cut stuff until it fits.
In addition to that, we will have a new application installer in F20
( https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/AppInstaller ), which will
allow us to properly present and feature applications that are not yet
installed. For that reason, the designers working on the app installer,
Ryan Lerch and Allan Day, have proposed that we don't install
transmission, simple-scan and gnome-photos by default anymore, and
instead feature them prominently in the app installer.
Unless there's strong opposition, I'll drop those three from the
kickstart file, and we can reevaluate the size issue on Monday.
