Thread: Textbox in krunner greyed out on OpenSuse 11.2 fresh install

    Question Textbox in krunner greyed out on OpenSuse 11.2 fresh install

    I recently installed OpenSuse 11.2 on my desktop PC, and krunner (Alt + F2) has never worked from the start. When I hit Alt + F2, the launch app window pops up, but the textbox is greyed out and it is not responsive to any key presses. So, it is basically useless.

    I thought maybe this was an issue with the version of KDE4 shipped with OpenSuse11.2 and so, updated to the latest version of KDE4 from KDE4 Factory Repo using 1 click install (from OpenSuse wiki). I even tried deleting .kde4 and .kde folders after doing this update and I still see the same behavior with krunner.

    What am I missing?

    Edit: Come to think of it, I think maybe Alt-F2 is not bringing up the krunner window. Instead, it looks more like the launch app window from KDE 3.5.*. I'll try to post screenshot when I get back home.

    Please delete repo 1

    add this in place:

    kde4 stable desktop
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2

    Then do this:


    After that, you will need to do the same switch on Packman to get back some apps like k3b to Packman versions

    That fixed the krunner issue and I really love the latest "stable" KDE4. I really didn't like the Beta in the factory repo. Thank you.
