    Default Downgrade to GNOME 3.4

    Hello,

    I installed GNOME 3.6 (by mistake) by this repo:

    zypper ar -f Index of /repositories/GNOME:/STABLE:/3.6/openSUSE_12.2 gnome3

    Now I want to downgrade to 3.4.
    So, I removed the repo and ran:

    Code:
     
    su
    zypper dup
    But that did not work. What should I do?


    Thanx...

    How did it not work?

    Make sure you have just the 4 official repos

    Code:
    su -
    zypper dup
    should work

    But tell me, was your original install done with a CD or DVD
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    Tell me the 4 official repos.

    I installed using Live USB KDE (CD).

    Or shall I add this repo?:
    zypper ar -f Index of /repositories/GNOME:/STABLE:/3.4/openSUSE_12.2 gnome3

    Thanx...

    I think there is a 'dup' bug in the CD version, your mention of a problem is serving to confirm this.

    That repo you mention does not exist

    If you can login to kde
    Open Yast > Software Management
    see this: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B3e...XF3VTdwbVdGMUk
    BUT choose unconditionally option
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    perhaps this problem can be solved simply by fully becoming root with

    Code:
    su -     <good, this does it right
    su       <bad, this does not change to root's environment

    both will switch user powers/permissions to root, but the first one
    *also* switches the environment to root--which is (sometimes? often?
    always?) needed for zypper operations..

    Default Keyring

    I installed GNOME extension Gmail notifier. A keyring was created and I have to enter its password everytime I log in to my user (It also hangs the pc for a minute or so and is very annoying). Can you tell me any software using which I can manage my keyring and remove the password????

    Also...

    How do I edit the startup applications?

    Thanx...
