Fedora 22 and missing applications

Filed under
Red Hat

Quite a few people are going to be installing Fedora 22 in the coming days, searching for things in the software center and not finding what they want. This is because some applications still don’t ship AppData files, which have become compulsory for this release. So far, over 53% of applications shipped in Fedora ship the required software center metadata, up from the original 12% in Fedora 21. If you don’t like this, you can either use dnf to install the package on the command line, or set gsettings set org.gnome.software require-appdata false. If you want to see your application in the software center in the future, please file a bug either upstream or downstream (I’ve already filed a lot of upstream bugs) or even better write the metadata and get it installed either upstream tarball or downstream in the Fedora package. Most upstream and downstream maintainers have shipped the extra software center information, but some others might need a little reminder about it from users.

  • Friction Building Around An Ubuntu Community Council Decision
    Scott Kitterman exposed the email exchanges today of the Ubuntu Community Council informing Jonathan Riddell that due to his aggressive, confrontational behavior towards some within the Ubuntu community and Canonical, he should step away from "all positions of leadership in the Ubuntu Community for at least 12 months." His leadership positions should be put aside for both Ubuntu and Kubuntu while he would be able to keep his upload/commit rights and still participate as a member of the Ubuntu community.
  • Reaffirmed on the Kubuntu Council
    I’d like to thank all the Kubuntu members who just voted to re-affirm me on the Kubuntu Council. Scott Kitterman’s blog post has a juicy details of the unprecedented and astonishing move by the Ubuntu Community Council asking me to step down as Kubuntu leader. I’ve never claimed to be a leader and never used or been given any such title so it’s a strange request without foundation and without following the normal channels documented of consultation or Code of Conduct reference.

  • Technology Is A Tool, Not A Learning Outcome
    Croatia is gaining in usage of GNU/Linux. That TFA was written shows the awareness of a lack of availability of IT. All that is needed to bridge the digital divide is for Croatian schools to catch up with and to exceed the rest of society in using GNU/Linux, the right way to do IT in education. Croatia needs to treble its IT in schools. That isn’t going to happen with Wintel. With FLOSS it is possible and can be done within a few years for no extra expenditure. With a little extra effort the change can be done in two years.

The problem is not with the updated applications, but with an upgraded GTK version, which may really affect the system. Before implementing apps by default, Canonical patches them to work well with Unity, basic on the philosophy that an app that works well does not need to get updated.
