    Neither. If the bug is on an openSUSE system report them at bugzilla.novell.com. They will consult the upstream KDE project as necessary.

    Most of the users on these forums are not openSUSE developers so no use reporting bugs here. But you can certainly discuss the software here to find out if it's a bug.

    you may also report the bug on kde forum where a lot of KDE devs browse it

    thx @both of you.

    so if i have any problem with a opensuse system i should report it to the bugzilla?

    i thought this forum was administrated by opensuse developers? is that not so?

    thx

    Well first discuss it in these forums to establish if it's a software bug. I would say that > 95% percent of the time, it's a user problem.

    Developers have more important things to do. I'm sure that some of them read the forums and in some cases I have seen postings by them. But even so, a bug report should go through the bugzilla tracker. If it's found to be a bug.

    fyi: KDE4.1 and 4.2 were so buggy it was depressing..

    if you are running anything before 4.2.4 you might as well forget it
    because it is probably fixed in the 4.3.0 RC..

    i do not believe there is a "direct" way to do it from inside KDE
    (other than use a browser)..

    if you are having problems (and of course you ARE) the best plan is to
    either avoid KDE4.x or plan to upgrade every day as it changes every
    day (almost)....and, sometimes there is actually progress....sometimes
    it won't even start...
