Thread: DESKTOP HELP ME!

  1. #1

    Lightbulb DESKTOP HELP ME!

    hi. All my brothers. I changed operating systems. I used vista before now I use OPENsusE11.2 gnome. I sat in front of the computer 3 days but I got nowhere. I have some questions about openSUSE. I saw a video on youtube. I want the same thing as his desktop, skins, plus 3D why should I use 3d as he does? Forgive me for I am not an expert spellings.

    This is your video YouTube - The Power of Linux - OpenSUSE 11.2

    Well first off, he's using kde4 not gnome. And from the looks of it he's using kde4's own compiz implementation of Kwin. So really it's just a basic kde4 desktop. His wallpaper is the globe type which lets you zoom in and manipulate a desktop globe as your wallpaper.

    What graphics card do you have? You can still do the 3d effects in gnome with compiz.

    Take Care,

    But in the video i cannot see GNOME Desktop! Its KDE Desktop. Why do you install GNOME Desktop when you want to have KDE Desktop?

    Add this to the repository list, install the fglrx-G02 driver and you have 3D. You may need to reboot
