I have found if I go into preferences, exit from preferences, close
gedit, and reopen gedit, this behavor stops.
Strange and distracting.  Just one more thing I have to 'fix' with
FC10 install.
Been a while since I have used KDE but that, IIRC, used to be a
'feature' of KDE. You using KDE?
Did not mention this. I have never run KDE so I kind of ASSuMEd that a
KDE user would be dealing with kedit, not gedit...
Depends Robert. I know Gnome users that like K3b for example. Why I am
sure but they do. I, myself, used Gedit when I first started with
Linux and
that was KDE 2.x.
And I do run k3b on my gnome'd laptop.
This was a fresh, formatted install or an update? This sounds like
an old
setting put into an updated install.
absolutely fresh.
3 such installs so far, and all have exhibited this behaviour.
Man I wish I could offer more than 'try this'. I do not like 'try this'
advice. Never have. But I did not/do not have this situation. I've never
seen this. Nor Have I heard anyone else mention anything such as this.
A test. Well okay - a 'try this' suggestion.  :-) Don't install K3b on
next machine. Nothing KDE. And see if this 'follow the desktop' thing
happens. The KDE stuff can be added later.

I suggest this test because I don't have anything KDE installed and, as I
said, I did not/did not see this. Just a thought. Might be a bug or an

This has happened on all three installs right 'out of the box' No KDE
components installed. At least that I know of.

One 'customization' is I deselected Office Apps at the install, knowing
that they have been updated, so I would add them AFTER the install via
yumex. Otherwise with perhaps some disk druid customizations (and then
NOT on one install) this is FC10 out-of-the-box.

Well... ya' got me now. I don't doubt you but I wish that I could see this
happen. I did three Fedora 10 installs a long time ago. When it was first
released. One desktop, mine, and two laptops, son and girlfriend. None of us
had this situation. And we have, me actually, seen to it that the installs
are kept updated. Hmm... does this happen before or after you update the
install from the DVD to 'today'? That I have not done. Fresh install of an
out of date ISO and then updated to 'today'.

Well my installs are from my network... Booting from CD disk 1 of 6.

I don't know if it is really 'out of the box' or only after 'yum update'.

At least it is only annoying and not a disaster?  :-p

It is just one more post install step, like moving SSH to port foo. Of setting preferences for Nautilus. etc.
