   * [[spyder]] (integrated development environment for python) has some incompatible preferences. if you have used it in earlier fedora versions, you should probably get rid of the ''​.spyder2''​ and ''​.spyder3''​ directories in your home before starting the new version.   * [[spyder]] (integrated development environment for python) has some incompatible preferences. if you have used it in earlier fedora versions, you should probably get rid of the ''​.spyder2''​ and ''​.spyder3''​ directories in your home before starting the new version.
-  * Printing: the ''​lp''​ and ''​lpr''​ programs (and related utilities such as ''​lpstat''​) don't seem to use the environment variables ''​$PRINTER''​ and ''​$LPDEST''​ any more; a per-user default can be set using the command ''​lpoptions -d printername''​ or by editing ''​$HOME/​.cups/​lpoptions''​. This file is now created automatically for all users, storing the current value of ''​$PRINTER'',​ but you may have to change this if you want another default printer. We have also set a per-computer default, usually the closest printer to the computer. \\ Alternatively,​ specify the printer on the commandline (e.g. ''​lpr -Php5 file.ps''​). +  * <del>Printing: the ''​lp''​ and ''​lpr''​ programs (and related utilities such as ''​lpstat''​) don't seem to use the environment variables ''​$PRINTER''​ and ''​$LPDEST''​ any more; a per-user default can be set using the command ''​lpoptions -d printername''​ or by editing ''​$HOME/​.cups/​lpoptions''​.

The fix is, to enable ​ the ''​topicons plus''​ extension: open ''​gnome-tweak-tool'',​ and go to ''​extensions''​ to do that. After that, the icons such as status icons of dropbox, skype etc, will be in your top panel.
