8.3. GNOME

This release features GNOME 2.16. Many of the changes in GNOME 2.16, such as Tomboy and the GNOME Power Manager, were added in Fedora Core 5. Fedora Core 6 also features the Orca screen reader, and the Alacarte menu editor previously available from Fedora Extras.
The GNOME Power Manager utility now provides detailed, graphical information about power consumption. To access this information, right click on the applet and select the Information menu item.
The GNOME splash screen has been disabled upstream intentionally. To enable it, use gconf-editor or the following command:
gconftool-2 --set /apps/gnome-session/options/show_splash_screen --type bool true

The lock screen dialog theme is not connected to the selected screensaver in this release. To enable it, use gconf-editor or the following command:
gconftool-2 --set  --type string /apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme  "system"
