QT Dialogs Without Titlebar on Gnome 3 (Fedora)

I am writing a program in QT that uses an SQLite database. I ran the software and was presented with a "file open" dialog for no apparent reason, and I had no idea what I was being asked.
Dialog With No Title Bar
The title bar is very clear on what is desired, but, there is some interaction between Gnome 3 and Qt that caused this to not display. This is the code used to display the dialog:

  1. path = QFileDialog::getExistingDirectory(this, "Select DB Path", path);

Updating a Garmin on Fedora 18 Using VMWare

I tried to update my Garmin Nüvi 3590 today. When I connected the device to my computer, Fedora 18 immediately connected the device as a USB storage device. Although this is typically desired, my Windows VM was then unable to take the device and connect to it so that I could update the maps. Annoying. I tried a few things, and none of them worked, so I finally started VMWare as root, started a copy of my VM (so that I did not change the permissions on the VM). What do you know.... when the VM runs as root, it is able to disconnect the device and connect it to the VM.

Fedora 18 boots with no video

My operating system of choice is Fedora and I have it running on multiple computers. One of the computers has the partition containing the "home" directories encrypted, so I am required to enter a password every time the computer boots. It is common for this machine to boot to a blank screen.

Updating to Fedora 13

I decided to upgrade from Fedora 12 to Fedora 13 the other day. I followed most of the usual recommendations


I did experience a few difficulties. In fact, I have likely not found all of the little gotchas yet, but, this is what I know so far:

I usually try to install the 64-bit standard distribution of OpenOffice.org, as opposed to the Fedora built release. I totally ignored this and I had to uninstall and then re-install OOo before it would function. So, that was problem 1, and it was not really a surprise.
