Thread: GNOME ng IN 13.1

  1. #1

    Default GNOME ng IN 13.1

    I really wanted 12.3, but got 13.1 instead. Gnome 3.x does not work well on my machine (Dell Dimension 2400 Celeron 2.4ghz, on board graphics). Graphics are inconsistently displayed and response-time to mouse/keyboard is abysmal. Would like to try KDE, but as I probably don't need all of its packages, how do I install KDE functionally equivalent to Gnome? How do I change the startup to use KDE?

    PS: I only have a CD drive on this machine. Used A CD iso for network install for 13.1. If I could find one for 12.3, I'd just overwrite 13.1 with 12.3 and pick KDE instead of Gnome.

    If this is 13.1M3, and if you are using 32 bit, then KDE probably won't work on it.

    Your best bet for now will be the 12.3. There should be a network install image at software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 12.3
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;
    testing Leap 15.2Alpha

    nrickert, thank you very much! I did not see that button for network install even after looking at that page several times. It's downloading as we speak!

    Thanks Again!

    As 13.1 is not yet out, you need to ask this question in beta forums
    http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...-release-beta/

    GNOME 3.6.2
    openSUSE Release 12.3 (Dartmouth) 64-bit
    Kernel Linux 3.7.10-1.16-desktop
