Disable Shotwell on Fedora + Gnome


Found the answer to this conundrum with a little help from the Ubuntu forum but this answer works in Fedora with Gnome, too. Here's my remix of their answer:

To enable or disable automount open a terminal and type dconf-editor followed by the [Enter] key.

Browse to org.gnome.desktop.media-handling. A quick way to do this is to press Ctrl+F (for Find) and then type automount.

The automount key controls whether to automatically mount media. If set to true, then Nautilus will automatically mount media such as user-visible hard disks and removable media on start-up and media insertion. You probably want this on.

There is another key org.gnome.desktop.media-handling.automount-never. By checking this, you will disable Shotwell, and everything else, from running when devices are automounted. So check this to turn Shotwell off.

Serial terminals on USB ports

Here is my recipe for [serial terminals on] Ubuntu, using USB serial adapters:

  1. hook up the stuff and config the terminals correctly (I used 9600 8n1 due to long cables, got weird chars at 19200+)

  2. put the following in /etc/init/ttyUSB0.conf

    # ttyUSB0 - getty
    #  This service maintains a getty on tty1 from the point the system is
    #  started until it is shut down again.#start on stopped rc  RUNLEVEL=[2345]
    #stop on runlevel [!2345]
    exec  /sbin/getty -8 9600 ttyUSB0 vt100  

    ---(repeat for as many terminals you have, incrementing the 0 of ttyUSB0 to 1 to 2 etc)--- 3. reboot or

    # sudo service ttyUSB0 start

    (repeat for as many terminals you have, incrementing 0 to 1 to 2 etc) ...

Here is my setup with a WYSE vt420 compatible and two vt320's http://www.flickr.com/photos/rickdeckardt/4748415699/ [flickr.com]

Alternately, just add to /etc/inittab --

s1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty  -L -w 9600 ttyS0 vt100
