    please go back and look at the very top of the forum here:
    http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...iewed-how-faq/

    see if you see anything above the "Post New Thread" button....i'm
    thinking maybe somehow part of the page isn't being delivered to readers...

    can you a big graphic with a person speaking into a megaphone?
    are there any words as a part of that graphic?
    or, to the right of that graphic....

    all of that so big you have to scroll down to find the post button?

    or, maybe it is being blocked by something...

    please advise.

    Hello all,

    Got it working fine ! and it looks like my old gnome2 desktop now !!! ...

    for the ones who are interested in having their old gnome2 desktop look in OpenSUSE 11.4 with fxce .. just install the XfApplet plugin, and it will permit you to install the default gnome panel menu in xfce desktop ....

    Once the xfapplet is chosen in the panel preferences on the items tab ... you will need to go on the panel once it is there .. and right click on it to choose properties ... to choose the default gnome menu of your desktop ...!

    perfect: post the question in the how-to forum and the how-to in the
    applications forum.

    Nononono. :-)

    This sub forum is for you to explain to us how to do that.
    We learn, you teach us.
    We are not here to advice you: We are here to read your howto writeup and
    comment on it.

    I noted this thread was moved to the applications area by one of my fellow moderators. I am replying to the 1st two posts so that our NNTP users have a hook in which to reply to this post.

    I'll also move some 'hanging' threads from the how-to area to join this thread, so to clean up things on the web side.

    Ls_Don_X, in future, please do NOT post threads in the How-To-FAQ area. Thankyou !
