Fedora 24




Disabling/clearing of recently used files tracking
For me the cinnamon 3.2.6 update broke the use of the recently-used.xbel file by disabling the tracking of recently used files causing applications that use this functionality to reset that file back to its default contents loosing all record of recently used files.

Re-enable this via dconf

    $ dconf write /org/cinnamon/desktop/privacy/remember-recent-files true

New software notifications

Disabling new software notificatons
Once a new version of Fedora has been released, every time you log into your desktop (GNOME/Cinnamon/etc) you get a pop-up telling you there is a new version of Fedora. Disable these with
    $ dconf write /org/gnome/software/allow-updates false
