    Default No acces to other partitions

    Hi, maybe you guys can help me (I hope),

    I am currently testing for the first time openSUSE.

    I experience some problems right away, the most important problem:
    I can not get through the explorer (Dolphin) on another partition.
    When I try, I read underneath:

    There was an error while accessing 'Disk 2'. The system notified:
    org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolycy: org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed
    auth_admin_keep_always <- (action, result)
    I've already started looking at different solutions. But I'm not familiar enough with KDE to just be able to solve this problem. Anyone have any idea what to do to acces other partitions or drives anyway?

    Another problem is that the GUI is very slow, moving windows and scrolling is not smooth. Anyone have any idea what I can do about this?

    I also have a black taskbar since I've moved it to my main screen as it automatically appeared on my small screen. How do I get it brighter again so the clock is readable again?

    And finally, the Explorer (Dolphin) has a very annoying behavior, I need only to click a folder to open it then as I really only want to select. How can I make a folder only open when I double click on it?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Last first. The new way is if you move the mouse to the top left corner of the icon you will see a + sign click this to select now if you do this again you will see a - sign click to de-select.

    Slow- What video card do you have. Have you installed a driver for it.
    openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users

    Partitions. Tell use about this other hardware drive how is it formated etc. Is it a plugin USB.
    In order to access a partition you must first mount it.
    Open a console window become root by typing
    su -
    then enter the root password (note that the password does not echo to the screen)
    then type
    fdisk -l
    note that is a lower case L not a one
    copy the output by highlighting it and press ctrl-shift-c then paste it here using the code tags (hint select go advanced)

    About the double clicking, I managed to change the system settings in the mean time, so that problem's solved.

    I have a Radeon HD 4850. Installed drivers for it with:

    Code:
    zypper in fglrx64_7_5_0_SUSE113
    Tried a few other installation methods before this one but they all failed.

    The partitions I can't acces are all other partitions on my harddrives formatted NTFS

    output of the terminal:

    Code:
    fya@linux-whnd:~> su -

    Default Re: No acces to other partitions

    Meanwhile, I am able to mount a partition using the partition management in yast. However I can't write to the partitions I've mounted. Only read. Any idea how to change that?

    There was something seriously wrong with yast in my opensuse because nothing could be installed anymore so I decided to reinstall opensuse again.

    I installed the fgrlx-driver with the 1-click install. While rebooting, GUI wouldn't appear, the screen stayed black. Even after restoring the backup of X11.

    I have reinstalled openSUSE again afterwards. I have no video driver installed and now the GUI is fast. But without video driver I can not set the desired resolution and not use my second screen. Any idea which video driver I should install and how?

    Thanks in advance.
