Thread: Problems I have run into while configuring openSuSE 11.3 installed on Toshiba Satellite Pro

  1. #1

    Default Problems I have run into while configuring openSuSE 11.3 installed on Toshiba Satellite Pro

    Since the installation of openSuSE 11.3 I've been trying to configure the system to my liking. Here are a few problems I have run into:

    1. The sound capture device (microphone) does not work (either in Skype or krecord).

    2. The Hotkeys (Fn-Keys) of my computer do not work under Linux (e.g., I cannot turn up and down the sound volume or the screen brightness, etc) while they do under Windows 7.

    3. While trying to configure my Desktops, the configuration tool crushes with the message: "Executable: systemsetting PID: 16183 Signal: 11 (Segmentation fault)".

    4. When I try to configure my console and apply transparent windows I get the message: "your desktop does not appear to support transparent windows".

    Any thoughts or ideas to help me solve them will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    1. Open the mixer >> HeadPhone
    2. Weird, it does work here (Dell)
    4. Enable Desktop Effects

    For problem #2 try going into a terminal and type xev then press enter. Now try pressing your hot keys. Does any additional output come out from the terminal when you press the keys?

    How about Open the mixer (kmix in console) and add microphone? Maybe you need to unmute the microphone?

    If it gives this output when you press the hotkeys then that means that openSUSE is recognizing that it is being pressed you just need to configure the settings so when you press the hotkey it will do that action

    What Desktop Enviornment are you using? e.g. KDE or GNOME
