Thread: gnome 3.10 critical features missing?

  1. #1

    Default gnome 3.10 critical features missing?

    I just installed OpenSuse 13.1. Really nice overall, but I have some critical issues:
    1. where can I configure behavior on laptop lid close?
    2. where can I configure power button action?
    3. Really high CPU usage
    4. some mainstream multimedia codecs don't work in Totem
    5. sound level randomly resets to 100%. (It's quite a problem when your OS is prone to damaging your eardrums!)
    6. no screensaver?

    Any solutions?

    Of and I just found a new one:
    banshee and rhythmbox systematically crash after playing one file.

    Hi
    You can configure this via Tweak Tool -> Power

    - where can I configure power button action?
    If you hover the mouse over the power button and press the alt key, you
    can suspend, else it's cancel, restart or power off.

    - Really high CPU usage
    Hmm, don't see this here, what processes are running?

    - some mainstream multimedia codecs don't work in Totem
    Follow the multimedia guide to install the grstreamer codecs?

    - sound level randomly resets to 100%. (It's quite a problem when your
    OS is prone to damaging your eardrums!)
    Haven't seen that occur here, what applications are causing this.

    - no screensaver?
    By design, it may come back one day. Some folks have reported
    xscreensaver works?

    Hi
    What type of file? If you start either application from a terminal, any
    useful hints in the terminal after the application crashes?

    Possibly a little off topic, I've also had issues with Rhythmbox. I've opened a bug for this https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=857127
