    Question no Education repo

    hi.
    i've done a fresh install of opensuse 11.2 gnome.
    i could not find the education repository (i need blue fish) in the community repositories list.
    any ideas?
    i also could not find deluge and xara in repos.
    -----
    my download method was via bittorrent at first. i could not find the education repo and i also could not drag and change the position of windows on the applications panel. then i remembered that when i had downloaded 11.1 via bittorent, i had opensuse working with this sort of mistakes too.
    then i downloaded it using a direct link. i still can't find the repo. and at this time fonts rendering is just terrible! i still can't find deluge (i guess it used to be in the pacman directory). haven't looked for xara. the default theme (which is ugly imo) after i changed it appers in the list, but it says the theme is not installed!
    is anyone having the same problems with opensuse 11.2 gnome as me?
    i do hope all these are happening because of the couple of scratches on my cd-rw.

    Install the repo (as in the link provided) in YaST. There you'll find Bluefish at least. Don't use bittorrent but install software through Yast.
    Not sure what the CD-RW has to do with it. Fonts we can deal with later once you've mastered the software installation process through Yast, and the management of repositories.

    i don't use bittorrent to install packages. i used it to download the image file.

    as for the possibly damaged cd-rw - i thought it could influence the integrity of some packages and that might be the cause of the OS working wrong.
    --
    as to the impossibility to change windows position - looks like it is a bug in OpenSuse 11.2 gnome - Gnome window list: can't switch buttons - openSUSE Forums

    i really regret for switching from 11.1 (which worked perfectly) to 11.2
