nautilis fork ( File manager ) with tree view in sidebar.

Was searching for this for sometime now, finally found it.

sudo yum install nemo
sudo yum list nemo*

First just install nemo. Configure nemo not to interfere with default desktop and also make it default handler. So, here are the settings that would do it.

gconftool-2 --set  /desktop/gnome/applications/component_viewer/exec --type 'string' 'nemo "%s"'
gconftool-2 --set  /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/trash/command --type 'string' 'nemo "%s"'
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons false

Now, if you need more functionality in file manager then check the list of nemo packages from the output of second command of yum. It has plugins like file preview and so on. Install and enjoy.

conky transparent window on Fedora with Gnome.

On Fedora with Gnome-shell 3, its been long time that I was not able to get transparent window. So, finally I thought to spend some time to try to fix that. Finally got that fixed with all the configurations below in the conkyrc.  Here the default color is set to  LightSkyBlue but feel free to change that.

I hope this helps fedora community who is struggling to get transparent window. And here is the code :

own_window_transparent yes
own_window_class Conky
own_window_argb_visual yes
own_window_argb_value 0
own_window_type normal
own_window_colour LightSkyBlue
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

Found this great page and thought of sharing this:

When using this, you will need to install :

https://github.com/caseyhoward/nokogiri-plist

and when you install this, you will find that the permissions for the files are not appropriately set, so go to your ruby gems directory or the installation directory for nokogiri-plist and change the permissions.
