    Are you referring to a USB-connected HDD?

    Does it appear in the KDE device notifier? That should give you options to mount, including 'auto-mounting' if that is what you prefer.

    It's probably NTFS format
    What make is it?
    If possible can you use Windows to scan the drive for errors and be sure to 'Safely Remove'. Then try in openSUSE again.

    I'm sorry; I wasn't clear -- the USB external HDD is just an example. For example: Configure Desktop doesn't work, and I don't know why!

    How exactly does 'Configure Desktop' not work? Have you Unlocked the Widgets? This is needed for some actions.

    Show us the error message/s

    Saying it's broke does not tell us anything. We need more info to know how it i broke for you. It all works fine here so. Why do you say it does not work. Does it no start? Not do what you expect? runs then crashes?? Try as we might we can not see over your shoulder.

    With your HDD device plugged in, can you provide the output of
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    and
    Code:
    dmesg|tail

    Cool [SOLVED] Re: oS 12.3 KDE: Cannot access Dolphin

    First of all, I want to thank:
    • deano_ferrari
    • caf4926
    • gogalthorp

    for taking the time to respond; now, on to the solution!

    I took the laptop to a Linux Users Group meeting and I showed the experts the below:

    ~> dolphin
    dolphin: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libnepomukcore.so.4: file too short
    ~>

    After looking at the above, the gurus began googling the error message and -- eventually -- discovered that libnepomukcore.so.4 had to be deleted and then installed. Evidently it was not so much an openSUSE problem as it was a KDE problem.

    By the way, this was all done from the command line. (well, except for the googling, anyway)

    I hope that the above explanation is comprehensible.
