Thread: Why is GNOME missing features?

  1. #1

    Default Why is GNOME missing features?

    I have openSuse v11 with Gnome. I prefer gnome to kde.

    From the desktop I should be able to click restart and then select what OS I want to restart in without having to use the grub.

    Where is this feature? or How do I get it?

    -Thanks

    Arukas that is still NOT descriptive enough... but thanks for making a better effort this time. If it were me, I would have posted a title like:
    Gnome: How-to selectively restart direct to other OS after reboot?

    Also, that wiki I gave you does EXACTLY what you want, but not via a GUI.

    Reboot from CLI to selective partitions - openSUSE

    How is this not descriptive enough? I am should be able to restart into windows from the suse desktop without using the grub?

    If you don't know what this feature is, do you even use Suse? Its the first thing I notice that makes suse different from other distros when I tried it a while back ago.

    Arukas I have used that wiki instruction to restart from an openSUSE Gnome desktop to windows via a reboot.

    Your title says: Why is GNOME missing features?

    Are you intending to address all the Gnome / KDE differences in this thread, or just your specific problem?

    You say you SHOULD be able to do this withou using the grub. That's a great
    assertion...seems that you are the first one to make it.

    So, we have a rule around here: The first person to think of a new feature,
    gets to implement it. Let us know when your programming skills are up
    to the task. [I'm volunteering to test it when you are ready.]

    Cheers...

    Why isn't reading a thread entirely before replying not a rule?

    I stated that you could already do it in Suse. Its the thing that set it apart from other distros when I first tried different flavors of Linux out.

    I'd be checking your testing skills first before asking about my programming skills. Reading things first is kinda of a must.

    Your title for this post is not descriptive at all. It reads like something that should be in the soapbox section where people can rant about stuff they dislike. Experts scrolling through, looking to answer questions that people have about _Applications_ are more likely to ignore the thread because there is no way they can tell that you're asking how to restart into another OS without using grub. I only opened the thread because I was expecting an entertaining rant about gnome.

    Also, when you attack a member with over a thousand posts who spends a lot of his time on here helping people, it really does make people not want to help you.

    With that said, I don't use gnome. I know the feature has existed in opensuse's kde since 10.something days, so I expected it would be in gnome as well. Maybe a gnome user can chime in... if they happen to click on the post while looking for entertainment.

    Oh great a cronie.

    Your just a cronie who's just going to stand behind your leader. Your sad. Now I have an off-topic conversation on my thread thanks to you.

    If you really wanted to help there's this thing called private messages, try it out. Instead of trying to act like you have a pair.

    If you truly was trying to humble me, solving the issues would of made you look better than a cron. As for having so many post, look your a senior member acting like a little kid trying to say your better than me.

    Nice Try.

    Wow, aren't you a little touchy. You asked how your post wasn't descriptive. If you had actually read oldcpu's initial post, rather than selectively reading, you would have seen that he was saying your title wasn't descriptive. I elaborated on that. That's how it works on any online forum - people will read posts with titles they find interesting and yours says nothing about your problem.

    Humble you? Seriously... what are we in? Grade school? Sixty odd posts hardly count as senior member, but you know, if you say I'm better than you, who am I to disagree. They're your words, not mine. And why would I want to PM you. This is a public forum, not a private messaging service.
