    Default kde 4.2: Can't select text or move windows


    I've installed 11.1 and the first thing I did was upgrade to 4.2 using
    the procedure described here:

    'Howto install KDE 4.2 on openSUSE The Blog is Hot'
    (http://tinyurl.com/are7hp)

    Now I've got two problems:

    1) I can't select text with clicking and dragging. If I try to do this
    in Firefox, for example, the window just scrolls down without selecting
    something.

    2) I cannot move windows. I can close and minimalize them, but not move
    them.

    It could be a xorg.conf problem, but visual inspection of the file did
    not show any strange things, though mind you, I'm not a X expert.

    The system in question is a Lenovo Thinkpad T61p with a NVidia FX 570M
    card, which uses driverpackage nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-default version
    180.22.

    So I am using the newest nvidia drivers, but maybe not the right
    package (in the description of G01 it says it's the driver for FX
    cards...)

    Anyone had something similar or has any inspiration?

    Ok, somehow it seems to be working again. I switched to G01. Blank
    screen. Switched back to G02 (although in another topic, they also make
    use of G01) and now it seems to be working

    However, G01-kmp-default is kept. Weird stuff. I suspect that I should
    not have added the nvidia repo at the beginning of the installation.
