    Thisdocument will explain how to set-up a basic digital audio workstation, DAW, using OpenSuSE. There will be manyadjustments and improvements one further may do to optimise thesystem in regards real-time audio which this guide not will cover,however, links will be provided in-text when relevant and at the endfor more in-depth reading, if one wish to enter deeper into thematerial.

    Thatsaid, the settings and configuration explained here should be sufficient to get a decent foundation and starting point to buildupon, both concerning system set-up and knowledge. Note also thatthis guide will not make use of PulseAudio; if one wish touse PulseAudio most of the configuration explained in thisdocument will still be relevant, and there will be references onemay consult on how to proceed further to tune the system when usingPulseAudio alongside JACK.

    Thisdocument will mainly use OpenSuSE 12.2 as reference, but in regard configuration and system settings it should be quite version independent.


    Thisdocument will assume that the reader is familiar with the basics of GNU-Linux and in particular OpenSuSE, i.e.directory structure, how to operate as super-user/root,using YaST, installing packages, creating and editingconfiguration files etc.

    Thedocument will also assume that one has an up and running OpenSuSEsystem with one or several audio-devices functioning.

    Otherwise,open a terminal and type in this command to find out which sound-devices which are installed on the computer:

    • #cat /proc/asound/cards

    andconsult this link to see if the sound-device is supported:

    Synergy is an application that lets you control a number of computers with the one mouse and keyboard. You can mix windows, Linux and/or Apple computers. You can have more than two computers controlled simultaneously. I describe here only how to get a Linux and a windows computer running together.

    Here's the Synergy User Guide.

    I use Synergy to run only two computers side by side, one running openSUSE 12.3 and one running windows 7. Sadly I need windows operating simultaneously with Linux for my work (after all, it's a real world out there). It would be simpler to import the windows desktop into the openSUSE screen with RDP and Rdesktop. But I need the openSUSE screen to ...

    GUI is great, but sometimes you just need to get down to the command line. For new users trying out Linux for the first time or others that just don't know Unix/Linux much and need a quick reference. This Linux cheat sheet runs you through common and helpful commands you'll need to know as you get comfortable with the command line.

    * Command Reference:
    ** Basics:
    *** Getting help:
    # View the manual for target command
    man [command]
    # Get help with a target command (probably the same as above, but not always):
    [command] -h
    # In case you forget the name of a command, print possible commands relating to [guess]:
    apropos [guess]
    # View index of help pages:
    *** Command Line Utilities:

    # Show maximum information about all files, including hidden:
    ls -a
    # Recurse into subdirectories and list those as well:
    ls -r
    # Move/rename a file or directory (be careful that you don't move the source over a destination with the same name):
    mv [source] [destination]

    How to Upgrade your openSUSE 12.2 Install to KDE 4.10

    Caveat: As with any upgrade there are risks. openSUSE 12.2 has a perfectly usable version of KDE. This upgrade requires a vendor or package switch to a non standard repository (it is though considered stable and safe) and as such it requires ...
