wow, fedora is a PITA to install new fonts compared to mint etc lol

For some reason I can't change the folders though, maybe a vmware thing

Wow! That does look nice. I'll try that font out when I get home. Thanks for that! And, yeah I'll be the first to agree with you that Gnome 3 can be a pain, sometimes.

Been running this release since yesterday and I love it. I never change fonts, the default is optimal for me. Detection, it takes time to get used to running Fedora. Not sure why you can't change the folders though. That could be as you said a vmware issue.

Ive worked it out, I needed to install themes etc via Terminal instead :)

Found a decent beginners tutorial for bringing some eye candy to the scene

Can't seem to get the F18 Live CD to load properly in VMWare, reaches a blue wallpaper and never reaches the desktop

Linux still looks hideous regardless of the desktop manager. Fonts are fugly, icons are fugly, spacing and aesthetics (what's that???) are non-existent. Maybe by v180.0 they'll improve on that front...

I wish someone would fix the Intel gfx driver so when I enable desktop cube, it doesn't screw the OS up to the point where a re-install is needed. Everytime I enable cube effects, I get major lag in the UI. If I click on the anything, it takes 5 seconds to pop up. No CPU spiking either, just major delays when clicking on anything. Whats worse is the only thing that fixes it seems to be disabling effects all together as simply unchecking cube effects won't remedy the problem. Desktop effects never works right again unless I re-install. Basically install, never, ever enable cube effects or I'm screwed.

OpenSUSE 12.2 suffers from this bug to, so not distro specific. This is a Dell Latitude D520 in case anyone is interested. I'd report it, but Fedora forces you to create an account. I'm sick of creating accounts!
