Just as an additional info: there is a nice extension for tracker integration into GNOME Shell here. Works very well.

comment GNOME Shell - display path of files in Activities window
my bad... actually, it looks like it's pulling them out of recent items. The need comes from the fact that I have several files with same name in different paths and knowing where they are would help a lot

comment GNOME Shell - display path of files in Activities window
hmmm no, I can assure you I have Gnome-Shell (FC16) and yes, I have a lot of files in there so it would be very useful to know info about it (plus it would be fun to code a plugin :P)

comment How do you get NOPASSWD sudo option to work in Fedora 15?
I did not know if that was actually the issue and I never used NOPASSWD before... so I just posted it as a comment. At the end, what's important is that you solved the problem :)

comment Allow users to run only specific binaries with root permissions/privileges
Am I missing something? Why can't you just edit /etc/sudoers and add username ALL=/sbin/iptables /sbin/whatever?

Essentially, you create a new group just for the user and give execution permission for iptables to that group.

comment How to calculate percentages in LibreOffice Calc?
Also, you can just fix the column using $A2 or just fix the row with A$2. This is useful when copying between different columns/rows (depending how your data is laid out)

@Anisha: means it is not installed. You may want to install qt-devel to get qmake

Thanks for your answer but that is not what I am asking. I know that there is an "Open with" pane, what is missing is the "custom command" edit box. I will rephrase my question accordingly
