---- Fedora 16 Alpha Go/No-Go Meeting #2, Wednesday, August 17 @ 17:00 EDT

Robyn Bergeron announced[1]:

"Sorry for belated notice, though I've talked to almost everyone involved
about the timing - have been travelling.

Join us on irc.freenode.net #fedora-meeting for this important meeting.

Wednesday, August 17, 2011 @22:00 UTC (17:00 EDT/14:00 PDT)

"Before each public release Development, QA and Release Engineering meet to
determine if the release criteria are met for a particular release. This
meeting is called the: Go/No-Go Meeting."

"Verifying that the Release criteria are met is the responsibility of the
QA Team."

For more details about this meeting see[2]

In the meantime, keep an eye on the Fedora 16 Alpha Blocker list[3]



---- evolution-data-server's libcamel soname version bump in Fedora
16/rawhide for 3.1.90 next week ----

Milan Crha announced[1]:


Just after 3.1.5 release of evolution-data-server was added an API change
in libcamel, thus the next week, when 3.1.90 will be released and I'll do
an update in Fedora 16/rawhide, anything depending on libcamel will require
a rebuild.

Again, I'll take care of everything I will be able to, and I'll also add it
to the same update as evolution-data-server. After my yesterday turn, there
are still packages I cannot do anything with, also because other dependency
issues with them (like almanah depending on libcrypt), but I will do my
best to make this (most likely final) soname version bump not that painful
for others. Bye, Milan"


--- Fedora Events ---

The purpose of event is to build a global Fedora events calendar, and to
identify responsible Ambassadors for each event. The event page is laid out
by quarter and by region. Please maintain the layout, as it is crucial for
budget planning. Events can be added to this page whether or not they have
an Ambassador owner. Events without an owner are not eligible for funding,
but being listed allows any Ambassador to take ownership of the event and
make it eligible for funding. In plain words, Fedora events are the
exclusive and source of marketing, learning and meeting all the fellow
community people around you. So, please mark your agenda with the following
events to consider attending or volunteering near you!

---- Upcoming Events (June - August 2011) ----

- North America (NA)[1]
- Central & South America (LATAM): [2]
- Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA)[3]
- India, Asia, Australia (India/APJ)[4]

Contributing Writer: Adam Williamson


--- Test Days ---

Next week will be internationalization and localization test week, with
three test days: desktop localization on Monday 2011-08-22[1], localization
and internationalization in the installer on Wednesday 2011-08-24[2], and
desktop internationalization on Friday 2011-08-26[3]. Fedora is used in
many countries and many languages, so it's vital to make sure translations,
keyboard layouts, input methods and so on are working well. There is also a
significant new feature to test: GNOME input integration[4], which brings
an integrated input method selector to the GNOME 3 desktop.


--- Fedora 16 Alpha preparation ---

The team began the week with validation testing on the Fedora 16 Alpha
release candidates, with RC2 landing on 2011-08-09[1] and RC3 following
soon after[2]. RC3 unfortunately proved still to contain several blocker
bugs, and so at the Go / No-Go meeting of 2011-08-10[3], the release was
delayed by one week. The team worked with the development group to prepare
for an RC4 build.


--- Release criteria updates ---

Adam Williamson proposed modifying the release criteria and validation
tests so that text-mode firstboot functionality would not be required[1].


--- AutoQA  ---

The AutoQA team released version 0.6.1, and began work on planning AutoQA


--Security Advisories --

In this section, we cover Security Advisories from fedora-package-announce
for the three weeks ending August 11, 2011.

-- LATAM Fedora! --

LATAM Fedora is a regular column of Spanish language contributions around
open source software. It is our first expansion into incorporating foreign
language content into FWN.

This week's contribution is from Guillermo Gómez, a review of the dwm
window manager. Enjoy!

--- dwm ---

1.yum install dwm

Cuando se intenta organizar ventanas en otros entornos de escritorio, la
mayoría son una pesadilla, pruebe dwm, hiperligero, sólo para geeks. dwm
consiste de un único binario de 54k (el distribuido por Fedora) que sólo
se puede personalizar recompilando los fuentes. Ya veremos más adelante
que en Fedora esto se puede hacer fácilmente.

Al comenzar ni sabrá cómo arrancar su primera aplicación, la
documentación (man dwm) dice Mod4-Shift-Return para arrancar uxterm, eso
se traduce usualmente a:


   uxterm es un envoltorio para xterm, un emulador de terminal para X,
ambos provistos por el paquete xterm.
A partir de ahí puede arrancar sus aplicaciones, si, desde un terminal, no
olvide agregar el & para dejarla en el fondo, por ejemplo.

$ totem & dwm-user¶

dwm-user incluye los fuentes de dwm y el guión de arranque dwm-start.

1.yum install dwm-user

--- Login ---

El paquete dwm provee una entrada /usr/share/xsessions/dwm.desktop y el
paquete dwm-user incluye /usr/share/xsessions/dwm-user.desktop. La única
diferencia es el modo de arranque.

---- dwm.desktop ----

[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Encoding=UTF-8 Name=dwm GenericName=Window
Manager Comment=Dynamic window manager for X Exec=dwm Terminal=false

[Window Manager] SessionManaged=true

---- dwm-user.desktop ----

[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Encoding=UTF-8 Name=dwm-user
GenericName=Window Manager Comment=Dynamic window manager for X (user
configuration) Exec=dwm-start Terminal=false TryExec=dwm-start

[Window Manager] SessionManaged=true 

dwm-start es el método de arranque preferido para DWM en Fedora ya que
entonces podrá personalizar su entorno, esto significa compilar su
versión de DWM con su versión de las cabeceras en su directorio personal
sin intervención manual, ¡cool!.

--- Keybindings ---

---- Layouts ----

- Mod4-t Poner la disposición tiled (cuadros).
- Mod4-f Poner la disposición a floating (flotante).
- Mod4-m Poner la disposición a monocle (monóxulo).
- Mod4-Shift-space Conmuta la disposición de estado de la ventana enfocada
entre tiled y flotante.

---- Navegar entre ventanas ----

- Mod4-j Cambiar/enfocar la próxima ventana.
- Mod4-k Cambiar/enfocar la ventana previa.
- Mod4-Tab Cambia a los tags previamente seleccionados.

---- Area maestra ----

- Mod4-h Decrementa el tamaño del área maestra.
- Mod4-l Incrementa el tamaño del área maestra.
- Mod4-Return Cicla/aumenta la ventana enfocada desde/hacia el área
maestra (sólo en disposición de cuadros).

---- Salir/cerrar ----

- Mod4-Shift-c Cerrar la ventana enfocada.
- Mod4-Shift-q Salir de dwm.
- Poniendo los tags a las ventanas
- Mod4-Shift-[1..n] Aplica el tag n a la ventana enfocada.
- Mod4-Button1-tagicon Aplica el tag n a la ventana enfocada (haga clic en
la barra con botón izquierdo)
- Mod4-Button2-tagicon Agrega el tag n a la ventana enfocada (haga clic en
la barra con botón derecho)
- Mod4-Shift-0 Aplica todos los tags a la ventana enfocada.

---- Dos pantallas ----

Para enviar una app de una pantalla a otra tiene las siguientes tres
  * En modo flotante, se puede simplemente arrastrar la ventana de una
pantalla a otra.
  * Mod4-Shift-, envía la ventana con el foco a la pantalla previa, si hay
  * Mod4-Shift-. envía la ventana con el foco a la próxima pantalla, si
hay alguna.

---- dmenu: lanzador de aplicaciones ----

dmenu es un menú dinámico para X (lanzador de aplicaciones).

1.yum install dmenu

Para usarlo en dwm Fedora presione:


Aparecerá un menú en la parte superior, en la medida que tipee se
reducirán las opciones, termina tu selección, o navega con las teclas
flecha, presiona enter y listo, su aplicación será iniciada, incluso
puede utilizar tab para autocompletar.

--- Hacks ---

---- stalonetray systray ----

stalonetray es un systray simple, punto.


static Rule rules[] = { /* class instance title tags mask isfloating */ {
"stalonetray", NULL, "stalonetray", ~0, False }, };

Esto asegura que stalonetray sea visible a lo largo de todos los tags.

---- terminator en vez de uxterm ----

Mod4-Shift-Return de caja arranca uxterm, deseo cambiar eso a terminator


1 /*static const char *termcmd[] = { "uxterm", NULL };*/ 2 static const
char *termcmd[] = { "terminator", NULL };

---- tags con nombres ----

Tener los tags simplemente numerados es conveniente, pero tal vez sienta la
necesidad de ponerles un nombre.


/* tagging */ static const char *tags[] = { "term", "web", "email", "chat",
"fm", "mmx", "7", "8", "9" };

---- Foco sigue al ratón, deshabilitar ----

No me gusta la idea de que el movimiento del ratón defina el foco de las
ventanas, suele provocarme problemas por la sensibilidad de los touchpad y
de los ratones ópticos que "se mueven solos" entonces cambian el foco de
la ventana a una ventana que nada que ver con lo que estoy trabajando. En
este caso debe comentar una declaración en el código fuente.


1 [DestroyNotify] = destroynotify, 2 /* [EnterNotify] = enternotify, */ 3
[Expose] = expose,

Y forzar una compilación, yo resolví ajustando ficticiamente por ejemplo
un nombre de un tag y luego devolviendo el cambio (no estoy seguro que el
sistema de construcción de dwm en Fedora note mis cambios en dwm.c).

---- Dos monitores al vuelo ----

Si iniciamos sesión DWM con los dos monitores encendidos en Fedora no hay
problemas todo funciona al pelo, sin embargo, puede que necesite conectar y
encender el segundo monitor una vez ya iniciada la sesión, por supuesto no
queremos reiniciar nuestra sesión DWM. Casualmente me tropecé con esta
circunstancia y reusé un pequeño script xrandr, la sorpresa es que no
tuve que hacer nada con DWM, simplemente apareció el segundo monitor con
sus nueve tags listo para trabajar. En resumidas, sólo debe configurar
para detectar el segundo monitor, el script abajo es la forma que usé en
mi laptop:


xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1280x1024 xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1280x800
xrandr --output VGA1 --left-of LVDS1


xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768 xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1280x800
xrandr --output VGA1 --right-of LVDS1

La primera forma es para que el segundo monitor quede al lado izquierdo del
primero, la segunda, al revés.

---- Aplicaciones systray ----

Ya sea con stalonetray o cualquier otro panel que incorpore un systray para
el sistema, seguro deseará usar algunas de las siguientes aplicaciones:

- nm-applet : applet para systray de Network Manager, le facilitará
conectarse a redes.
- PNMixer : mezclador de audio para el systray, le permitirá ajustar el
- Empathy , cliente chat.
- Pidgin , cliente chat.
- batti, monitor de batería, suspender, hibernar.

---- Mi configuración feliz ----

Esta sección es para poner "mi configuración", mis ajustes, mis
aplicaciones preferidas que se ajustan a mi manera de trabajar en dwm.

- fbpanel configurado a lo mínimo, no toma foco y se esconde solo, lo veo
cuando quiero :).
- dmenu como lanzador de aplicaciones.
- terminator como emulador de terminales.
- tmux multiplexor de terminales.
- pidgin cliente multiprotocolo para chat (irc, gtalk, identica, twitter,
fb ).
- pcmanfm es mi gestor de archivos gui preferido, seguido de nautilus.
- totem y/o xine para ver películas y videos en general.
- listen como reproductor de audio.
- radiotray como reproductor de radio.
- nm-applet para conectarme a redes.
- batti para vigilar la batería de mi laptop, suspender e hibernar.
- Pendiente bloqueo de pantalla.

Un pantallazo, por supuesto.

---- Referencias ----


---- Pendientes ----

Al usar tint2 este es sujeto de foco de ventana, quiero evitar ello ya que
no deseo pasar por tint2 para llegar a otra aplicación, es en realidad el
primer punto fastidioso para mi en el uso de dwm. Si tint2 aparece en todos
los tags (algo deseable), entonces es sujeto de tener el foco, es una
"ventana más flotante" (stalonetray sufre igual).
Con dos pantallas, en mi Fedora funciona perfecto, incluso mover las apps
de una pantalla a otra, BUT, cómo etiqueto una app para que esté en la
"otra" pantalla. En las dos pantallas tengo el panel con los 9 tags
individuales del 1 al 9.
