    Default Desktop?


    I don't like the new desktop on suse 11... (I had 10.3 before). It
    won't allow me to do previously normal things like choose send to trash
    and to "Run Terminal Here"... I just liked the previous... is it
    possible to set that up here?

    If you have KDE4 and don't like it, you can install KDE3.5 (as in 10.3)
    alongside it and log into KDE3.5, ignoring KDE4 from then on. If you're
    talking about Gnome, then you need another respondent for that.

    Further to @swerdna

    Here is a Howto add kde3 with video guide: 'Adding KDE3 in Yast from
    Patterns, then Update from Build Service. OS11.0 - By carl4926'
    (http://tinyurl.com/645jar)

    If you are using kde4. Dolphin has View - Panels - terminal
    and also right click move to trash

    You should have updated kde4 from the original, by adding these repo's:

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://tinyurl.com/3ttxs3)
    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://tinyurl.com/6ysprc)
    'Index of
    /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE4_STABLE_Desktop'
    (http://tinyurl.com/58c7on)

    Thanks ya'll. I guess I had KDE3 installed already. I didn't realize I
    could just choose what desktop to use when I boot up. I have done so
    and the desktop is back to "my normal". Thanks!
