Thread: My experience after one week with Leap 15.3

  1. #1

    Default My experience after one week with Leap 15.3

    Hello everybody!

    I am a 47-year-old Austrian and long time Debian user.

    The reason why I switched some of my computers to openSUSE is the excellent hardware recognition: I was looking for a stable Linux distribution to install on an old Dell 3120 chromebook. openSUSE and Manjaro were the only ones that got the audio working. And I still distrust rolling release distributions.

    Some issues I encountered:

    There seems to be no resynthesizer-plugin available for Gimp in Leap 15.3. But there are AppImages that contain all the plugins I need.

    After an update, the save-dialog in Brave always disappeared after one second. The issue and the solution are described in the following thread:
    https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...-dialogs/page2

    I also had to search for a while how to install Minecraft without the need to use snap. The following launcher worked very well:
    https://opensuse.pkgs.org/15.3/games...86_64.rpm.html

    I am using an Intel NUC 7pjyh to play Minecraft and it runs MUCH better than with Debian.

    Hopefully, openSUSE will be stable enough to keep using it.

    So far, I also liked zypper and some parts of YaST.

    Hi and Welcome to the Forum
    I just use the default launcher download as well as add optifine, I run on minecraft on SLED 15 SP3 (Leap 15.3 base) which has dual AMD gpus, so can use offload. My desktop runs Tumbleweed, minecraft rocks along there as well

    Hello Malcolm,
    Minecraft is essential!
    I also noticed that openSUSE uses less RAM than my other systems.
