Is it possible to get sound notification of Zoom chats?

I've been impressed with Zoom's Linux support. I run the latest Zoom 5 Linux client on CentOS 7.8 and everything just works, except for one minor (yet majorly annoying) thing. When I receive a chat in Zoom I don't receive an audible notification. I don't even see an option to configure one. Does any...

Re: Activities missing in CentOS 7.8

If you never want to use Gnome classic you can uninstall it with this command:

Code: Select all

yum erase gnome-classic-session

Re: centos 7.8.2003 update issue

Thanks for sharing your fix, I'm sure you saved others some frustration. FYI I avoided this problem by simply uninstalling the Gnome classic version so it's no longer an option (obviously only want to do this if you never plan on using Gnome classic):

Code: Select all

yum erase gnome-classic-session

Is there any alternative tool or way to Dash to Dock for GNOME DE?
I don't know what "GNOME DE" is, but I use Dash to Dock With CentOS 7. To install it I ran this (as root):

Code: Select all

yum install gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock

Re: [Solved] WOL (wake-on-lan) no longer works after upgrade to CentOS 7.7

Further information can be found in this issue: https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=16486 Thanks for sharing. Apparently this WOL issue only affects Realtek NICs like I have (I'm using a Realtek 8111D NIC that's build into my motherboard): $ lspci|grep Ethernet 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek ...

[Solved] WOL (wake-on-lan) no longer works after upgrade to CentOS 7.7

After upgrading from CentOS 7.6 to 7.7 I discovered that I could no longer wake my PC via WOL (wake-on-lan). I discovered that in CentOS 7.7 my NIC was now defaulting to WOL disabled (in 7.6 it defaulted to "magic packet"). I followed the steps here to enable WOL/magic packet for my NIC with nmcli (...

I've never had to do anything but enable it in in the BIOS on any of my machines, then it just worked.
On CentOS I believe it defaults to Magic Packet enabled and has always just worked for me too. On Windows depending on the card I've had to update drivers and change WOL settings.

Re: WOL only works after you've resumed from suspend (sleep) once

In addition to or instead of the "energized" theory I know that the OS must be configured correctly to allow WOL. So I believe during a clean shutdown (or suspend) the OS tells the BIOS to accept WOL packets. What's strange in my case is that my config must be correct since WOL always works except f...

Re: Wake On LAN question

I do what you're asking about. My old brief high level notes on this: Use a WOL web page or a fat client to send the magic packet Set your Internet firewall to forward an arbitrary port to your local network's broadcast address. I chose port 9 since most Internet WOL clients are hard coded to port 9...

WOL only works after you've resumed from suspend (sleep) once

I'm running the latest CentOS 7.6 on my home desktop. I use WOL (wake-on-lan) and also let my PC automatically suspend (sleep) to save power. I can resume my PC by pressing its power button or by sending it a WOL packet. For a long time (perhaps since I started using CentOS 7.0 years ago) I've had (...
