If you get the following Google Earth error under 64-bit Fedora 17 or Fedora 16:
./googleearth-bin: /lib/ld-lsb.so.3: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory
Try installing the redhat-lsb.i686 package as follows:
sudo yum install redhat-lsb.i686
Note: You could find this yourself for similar problems by typing at the Terminal:
yum whatprovides ld-lsb.so.3
Where of course “ld-lsb.so.3″ is replaced by the package being denoted as missing.
Fedora 16 automatically dims the laptop screen after a short period of inactivity. This period of inactivity appears to default to 10 seconds–which can be an unsettlingly short time.
To increase the Fedora 16 screen brightness timer, the following Terminal commands are relevant:
Check Fedora 16 screen brightness dimming timer (value in seconds):
gsettings get org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim-time
SET Fedora 16 screen brightness dimming timer (value in seconds):
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim-time TIME_SECONDS
where TIME_SECONDS is your desired dimming timer.
-e.g. perhaps 60 seconds is a more useful time to you, so type in Terminal:
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim-time 60
