NetworkManager, OpenVPN on Fedora 21

On openvpn setups where MD5 is still in use with the SSL certificate, it's now impossible to connect when you are in Fedora 21. To allow openvpn client to connect to such VPN using NetworkManager, you need to modify /usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service and add the following two lines in [Service] section:
Environment="NSS_HASH_ALG_SUPPORT=+MD5"
Environment="OPENSSL_ENABLE_MD5_VERIFY=1"
Restart the service and it will work ;)

Get Things Gnome : synchronize multiple computers

Since many years now I use GTG to manage my todo lists. (it can even be ). I tried to use Remember The Milk service to sync my laptop and my desktop but it wasn't really working well. Then I discovered a nice project : GTGonline, a Django project that allows the synchronization to and from GTG via a backend called backend_gtgonline. I forked the project to create a branch (that will never be merged it seems) to not hardcode the url of the service as I host my own version of GTGonline backend. My branch is https://github.com/lefred/backend_gtgonline/tree/service-url and I also provide a rpm package for Ferdora 20.

hamster-time-tracker for Fedora 18

To track my time I used hamster-applet with the previous version of Fedora and I really liked it. It integrates perfectly with gtg. This project hasn't be ported to Fedora 18, see bug 882788. I decided then to package the latest version of the project. The git repo is available here. You can see some screenshots here. If you enjoy or discover this cool project, I'm happy to make it available for Fedora 18. [UPDATE] I added the packages for F19 ;-)

GTG 0.3

Getting Things GNOME! has been released on November 6th but I was able to test it only tonight ;-) So far, I'm very pleased by this release and to be honest this seems to be the first time synchronization with Remember the Milk is working (I used it on my n900 and I plan to use it know on my android.... but I need to wait 22h before next sync) I've also installed the integration with gnome-shell very quickly and it seems awesome ! The development team as done a very nice job... If you plan to test it, I've packaged this release for Fedora 17.

Fedora on mac book (air) : wireless and kernel 2.6.40-4.fc15

If like me you are using Fedora on your mac book, after the week-end and in case of reboot, your wifi should not work any more :( Good, news, it's easy to fix, just add the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-wl-blacklist.conf blacklist bcma Restart and enjoy wifi back ;-) ps: of course you need to use: kmod-wl-2.6.40-4.fc15.x86_64-5.60.48.36-2.fc15.6.x86_64 kmod-wl-5.60.48.36-2.fc15.6.x86_64

Google calendar support in Gnome 3 evolution ?

During my test and discovery phase of Fedora 15, I noticed that Evolution doesn't support anymore google calendar... is it on purpose ? why ? Or do I need to install some other package ? I found this feature in Fedora 14 something very useful ! I hope this is something that will be fixed in the final release. In Fedora 14 (evolution-2.32.2-1.fc14.x86_64) : In Fedora 15 :

Gnome 3 and my favorite window focus and raise behavior

Yesterday night I installed Fedora 15 Alpha to see and test the gnome-shell (gnome 3) improvements. I stopped to test for one reason: I was not able to setup my favorite behavior for window's focus. What I like (this is mandatory, that's also the one major reason why I don't use Mac OSX daily) is that the focus follows the mouse but doesn't raises the window ! After having "googled" a bit, I tried to install gnome-tweak-tool... but it didn't help for this task... :( The solution is to use gconf-editor and changing the default value (click) of /apps/metacity/general/focus_mode to sloppy. Now I'm very happy and I can continue my tests of Gnome 3.
