    Back to the topic of this thread. I updated VLC and the screen-saver/power-management doesn't kick in anymore. I can't find release notes on the videolan.org website but I'm guessing something got fixed.

    I had a no-sound issue in VLC as well. In VLC, I went to Tools > Preferences > Audio. For "Output Module", I selected ALSA; for "Device", I picked the one with Analog front speakers. Sound came right back. It may work differently on you system, but you can always set it back to default.

    I am a newcomer coming from Kubuntu 12.04. I'm using openSUSE 12.1 and Kde. What do you recommend instead of Apper? Yast? Is there a command I would use in a terminal to check for updates?

    Welcome.

    zypper is the CLI tool in openSUSE. YaST Online Update would be the
    corresponding GUI tool.
