That's an awful long boot time. What is the hardware?

comment How to log in on Fedora 22 Cloud image running on VirtualBox
You may also want to try the Vagrant image Fedora Cloud provides starting with F22. This uses the vagrant conventions of a user account with name and password of vagrant.

comment switch off anti aliasing in fedora 22
Puzzle answered: the freetype-freeworld package does enable sub-pixel antialiasing (which gives you better shapes at the expense of color fringing). However, this question is, apparently, looking to disable antialiasing entirely — or at least, that's what it asks. I suspect really what's wanted is tweaks to the hinting, which can be done with the default libs now.

@JourneymanGeek Could you try removing it, restarting your X session (just to be sure) and playing with the various tweak tool settings, to see if you can recreate the look you like?

@JourneymanGeek What fonts are you using? (And for that matter, same question for Klaus.)

comment switch off anti aliasing in fedora 22
Klaus, turning on and off anti-aliasing should be instantly noticeable in the terminal. Well, almost instantly — you'll need to do something to cause the window to be redrawn (covering and uncovering it, even partially, should do). But if you're not seeing any change at all, something is weird. Can you post screenshots?

comment switch off anti aliasing in fedora 22
@JourneymanGeek This is a puzzle to me. Since the patents are expired, the bytecode interpreter is available in the main Fedora freetype package. I'm not sure exactly what freetype-freeworld is doing, but I think it's just enabling that by default rather than not. Why not by default? It looks worse with many fonts, despite the commonly-repeated wisdom — hence, font-tweak-tool which lets you play with this per-font.

Have you tried installing tweak-tool and changing the simple settings there? Or fonts-tweak-tool for more sophisticated (per-font) settings?

comment PYTHONPATH variable can't be echoed by non-root
But be careful, because a lot of system utilities use Python, and altering PYTHONPATH risks breaking that. It's probably better to accomplish this in a different way.

@Hennes That's basically the answer to this question, and probably should be an answer, rather than a comment....

comment Configure firewalld to distinguish home and public ethernet connection
Not a complete answer, but hopefully a clue: Firewalld gets its connection information from NetworkManager, so it's really NetworkManager that you want to have make the distinction.

comment VirtualBox broke Fedora networking - how to fix it?
@Mauren The built-in KVM virtualization technology should cover most use cases. Try GNOME Boxes for a simple UI or Virt Manager for a more advanced one.
