  1. Are there any chances to have highlight functionality (and all the other “text-editing” functionality)??

  2. This didn’t work for me initially. When running with strace it crashes because libnss_sss.so.2 is not found.

    This fixed the problem (I’m on x86_64):

    dnf install sssd-client.i686

      Thanks! I will recheck this guide, but yes it looks like that the sssd-client.i686 is not installed any other package dependency.
