Fedora 19 i18n and Translation Test day

Fedora 19 Alpha released and it is best time to test translation and i18n feature, so that bugs can be timely fixed before release.

FLTG  team providing support for Translation Test Day and I18N Test Day by add, review test cases, search features and communicate between various groups.

for Translation Test Day, we add few more gnome applications (like gnome-initial setup) and remove features those are no more available or default in Fedora 19 (like ibus, which is not part of gnome desktop). Translation Test Matrix is improved, while Report Page and Feedback page is created. Anaconda, have major in-complete translation for almost in all language, while gnome-initial-setup, gnome-clock etc application those are new in gnome-3.8 are also have English interface.

Fedora i18n Test Day (May 02, 2013) is upcoming, where tester can get time to review feature for gnome-ibus integration, new shortcuts to Enable/Disable input (check i18n Meeting log for detail).

Major Rendering issue for Indic locales detected (Hindi, Punjabi confirmed and bug already filed) during pre-test activity. Actually this issue already reported for Anaconda (lorax) here, but but with gnu-free-fonts have bugs for Indic locales and set default for Monospace instead of Lohit fonts (as lohit is no monospace), now gnome desktop effecting by this. During i18n Meeting it was found that Either disable gnu-free-fonts for Indic language (those are effected), which is easy way or disable monospace for Indic

some of bug fixes for fedora 16 before release

during regular use of pre-release system, it is really good to know that something is fixed quickly. Lokalize is major application for translation. I am using gnome 3 on desktop and there were two major bugs from last week.

1) QT applications failed to select properly, when using in gnome -shell (Bug  ) – FIXED with qt-4.8.0-0.17.rc1.fc16

2)  ibus failed to work with gnome and kde (all applications) with Ctrl+Space (Bug – FIXED with ibus-1.4.0-4.fc16

If you are using Pre-Release system, then please update ASAP to get those updates with yum

Kpackagekit – > apper:

recently kpackagekit moved to apper. Now Fedora 16 has apper as GUI of packagekit for KDE desktop. While new interface has various new feature, but there are still some bug exist (I am tester, so feature you can look here yourself).

Fuzzy Strings in apper:

??? instead of Translation in kpackagekit:

XKB keyboard layouts and IBus:

While integration of IBus with gnome continue in Fedora 16 (from Fedora 15). Fedora 16 has bug for Indic locales that there duplicate entries in IBus Preference menu regarding keyboard layouts like

Hindi Inscript (m17n)

Hindi  – Which is from XKB and basically inscript

So there are two problem:

1) XKB has no detail about layout, it is just saying “HINDI”

2) it is already exist in m17n-contrib and people are using with iBus from long time. So there are two layouts for same purpose.

if you have any comment please update bug report:

It was busy day as Fedora QA team member, there are around 2 new bug files, both were duplicate, Fedora i18 Meeting has great discussion regarding bugs and i18n/translation release-criteria (Fedora i18n Meeting log)

grub2 recovery for Fedora 16


Previously ‘grub’ was installed. With Fedora 16 upgrade I thought to try ‘grub2’. grub and grub2 had package conflict, for which I need to remove ‘grub’ package before installing grub2. After installing grub2, there were few configurations, which I need to made to work it properly (I learnt that later after failing to boot and using rescue mode)

1) install grub2 as following

$ yum remove grub -y

$yum install grub2 –y

2) you need to create grub.cfg file manually with following command (and it is not in /etc/grub(2).cfg)

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

(it detected Windows, Linux (Fedora, Linux Mint) automatically and added to configuration file)

3) install grub2 to MBR

grub2-install /dev/sda

Now it is complete and showing many kernel with Windows and Linux Mint.

Fedora GRUB2 Link

connect virtualization fedora server from ubuntu client

I was trying to access Fedora Virtualization server with qmeu+ssh from Ubuntu client

Server: Fedora 15 (running libvirtd)

Client: virt-manager connect with Server

1) install virt-manager to client

2)  Add connection  (File->Add Connection)

3)  Select ‘connect to Remote Host’ and select ssh with host IP or Address

if you get error like

Unable to open a connection to the libvirt management daemon.

Libvirt URI is: qemu+ssh://root@XX.XX.XX.XX/???

Verify that:
 – The ‘libvirt-bin’ package is installed
 – The ‘libvirtd’ daemon has been started
 – That you have access to ‘/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock’

then try following workaround:

ssh-copy-id -i /home/USER/.ssh/ root@XX.XX.XX.XX

(you may need to create Key with ssh-keygen -t rsa)


After doing this you need to DELETE old connection (virt-manager) and Add connection, otherwise it will not work

Sony YB with AMD Fusion

Yesterday got a chance to use Sony YB Series laptop, which is using AMD Fusion (AMD Link)  technology with APU (CPU+GPU)



  • AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350 with AMD Radeon™ HD 6310 Discrete-Class Graphics (detailed Benchmark by Notebooknet)
  • 11.6 inch wide (WXGA: 1366×768) TFT colour display (VAIO Display, LED backlight)
  • Compact and light weight: 1.46 kg
  • Isolation keyboard for comfortable typing

  • HDD 320 GB (Serial ATA, 5400 rpm)
  • AMD Radeon™ HD 6310 Graphics (detailed Benchmark by Notebooknet)
  • Touchpad (Gesture supported)



    Performance is Good enough to say Powerful netbook and also can be Normal Laptop. with 11.6 inch screen and 1366×768 resolution, it is quite easy to use as Main laptop. Battery life is quite impressive when compare with older AMD Mobile CPU.

    Windows Index score 3.7, lowest with CPU, Graphics (with Aero) 4.1



    Detailed Index is below



    If HDD changed with SSD, then Windows start time and Application start time can be improved

    Linux: I tried Linux Mint 10 and Fedora Rawhide (Live)

    Linux Mint run smooth, but Detected Screen was 1028×800

    Fedora Rawhide detected correct Screens size (1366×768), but not work (due to broken packages in pre-Alpha release)


    Fedora 14 – Display works (but @1080×800), bug 675177 reported, wireless works

    Linux Mint installed – Display works properly with Non-Free Driver (from ATI), Wireless works out of Box, Touchpad and Sound is not working (headphone works)
