    Default upgrade [12.2 to 12.3] annoyances

    I recently did an in place upgrade from 12.2 to 12.3 and seem to have
    lost the ability to make desktop changes that survive a reboot.

    With the following repositories

    http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/12.3/repo/oss
    http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/12.3/repo/non-oss
    http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.3/
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/games/openSUSE_12.3/
    ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/12.3/
    http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/12.3/
    http://packman.inode.at/suse/12.3/
    http://download.opensuse.org/source/distribution/12.3/repo/oss/
    http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.3-non-oss/

    enabled I performed a zypper dup and with only one conflict resolution
    got a functioning operating system -- I wanted nvidia in there so I
    could see a comprehensible display after the upgrade

    then I added

    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/411/openSUSE_12.3/

    and with another zypper dup got a newer KDE (4.11.4)

    in my main menu there are two Configure Desktops -- the upper one is
    worded "Configure Desktop" and seems to have a more modern gui -- the
    lower one is worded "Personal Settings (Configure Desktop)" and the gui
    is less modern

    I can change things, eg the keyboard repeat delay, in the upper modern
    gui, but the changes have no effect -- when I change them in the lower
    gui the things I change get changed, but they are back to defaults after
    a reboot.

    I have to do this the Powerdevil settings, turning NumLock on, and
    nothing I've tried so far has succeeded in attaching firefox to Win-F,
    or Ksnapshot to PrintScreen or dolphin to Win-E

    any help will be appreciated

    Please create a new user and try logging in there. Tell us if it exhibits the same symptoms.

    FYI, if you plan to use the KDE Release repos you should also include the same EXTRA repo as there has been a change in the way packaging is managed.

    So in your case you would also want
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Release_411_openSUSE_12.3

    If it were me I would use the software manager and switch on the repos like this
    1. R411
    2. Extra411
    3. Packman

    You can do this all in one but in that order.
    Then apply
    The only conflict you will see I think is k3b related, but ultimately you just keep them from Packman
    Tumbleweed_KDE

    per your suggestion I added the Extra for KDE -- I also bumped it to 4.12 since that is billed as stable -- another zypper dup and all my annoyances seem to have evaporated -- thanx!

    Notice that it is recommended you do the distro upgrade (dup) with only the oss, non-oss, plus the
    two update repos enabled. Anything else and it is untested and possibly problematic.
