There are a couple of good tutorials on how to set up your own OpenVPN server (e.g. here, here, or here). To route all traffic through VPN, you need to set up some iptables on the server, which is also well documented. This post is about a problem i encountered that was not described anywhere: on every reboot of your machine the iptables are reset.
To solve this, you want to save your iptables to a file and load them on the startup of the network interfaces.

Users of the lpf-spotify-client on fedora do not automatically have the media keys bound to the client. You can do that by sending dbus commands to the spotify process (dbus is already installed as a dependency of systemd)
Just bind the following commands to your media keys in system settings.
dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.spotify /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player.PlayPause
dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.spotify /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player.Stop
dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.spotify /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player.Next

I recently ran in to some problems with the lpf spotify client for fedora (version 0.9.11.27). It was randomly crashing with a segfault caused by a gtk2 update. Downgrading gtk2 to 2.24.22 solved the problem.
You can also temporarily disable the gtk update by adding the following line to /etc/yum.conf

I just reinstalled Enigmail for Thunderbird and was wondering what settings are actually changed during by the setup wizard, in particular the preferences section, to "change a view default settings to make OpenPGP work better on you machine"
