So I installed 12.2 again to ask you what I’m supposed to do then. I can’t go on the internet while I don’t have any. And even with 12.2 the wrong monitor is the primary and xrandr doesn’t persist between reboot. And for some reason I can’t find the xorg.conf, which I used to be able to edit things in.
12.3 or 12.2?
12.3 needs an additional reboot to bring the network up
xorg.conf is depreciated
Do you need to install proprietary graphics driver?
I did the additional reboot, and 12.1 and 12.2 always used to require that for me too. But it still didn’t work. I reinstalled 12.2 to get internet back so I can ask on the forum here. I didn’t install any proprietary drivers, I have Intel integrated hd 4000 graphics.
I got the internet working by switching in yast like your link said, but I still don’t know how to change my primary desktop over reboots. I can do xrandr --output HDMI1 --primary but that only helps until I reboot. I tried putting it into some init script but that didn’t work. There’s so many different init scripts all over the place, I have no idea which one is the right one.
Also I would like to have the latest Gnome 3.8, I guess that’s not possible either?

I think via Factory, yes.
But you should be experienced to use it really… How do you feel about that?
Can’t I just compile it myself? I compiled GCC myself once, wasn’t that hard you just had to gather all the libs it needed. Couldn’t I do the same with Gnome 3.8? And the latest Linux kernel? I don’t know the internals of OpenSUSE, but shouldn’t I be able to always have the latest kernel whenever it gets released by compiling it myself?
Read about it
It says that there may be bugs. I don’t understand why, 12.3 is finished and Gnome 3.8 is finished. How are those two conflicting with each other, (apart from that it says factory is development, so I assume development causes bugs, but like I said: Apart from that, there shouldn’t be bugs from the integration right?.. because they don’t really touch each other?
12.3 was built with 3.6
You could ask in the Mailing list or IRC
It probably will come, but 12.3 has only just been released…

The word “bug” in that article only appears in reference to the “G:F
Repo”. The “F” there means “factory”, and factory versions always have
more bugs that standard versions.
That’s what factory is for, solving old bugs, and finding new bugs.

So you remove the xorg.conf and then what? I’m supposed to do what exactly? Where can I set my primary display now??
You can still have a xorg.conf file but it is not need and adjustments should now be done in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d directory where you will see that the xorg file is now broken up into multiple files one for each section.
Intel video should not need a driver but you will have to do some xorg stuff to get multi monitors.
That doesn’t help me at all. I can and did find these scripts already. Obviously the harder part is to actually somehow magically find the right incantation of words to put in one of these things and oh, each time restart the entire pc or X somehow whatever, just to debug what the file may or may not have done.
