Hi there, I have now installed and reinstalled OpenSuse 11.3 a couple of times and are on it again, I seem to run into all sorts of problems when I want to customize 11.3.
First of all it seems that the xterm is locked somehow so you can’t even run gedit, now someone in another forum suggested running xhost +locahost which unlocked it for gedit but not other commands - why is it locked in the first place? And how to permanently unlock it?
Second: make is not installed from start. I find this very strange, did the developer forget this one?
What I like to do is to install gnomenu 2.8 but it will not work after install because something is missing. Ok, many will say that it is working fine on their system, but take in mind that its 11.3 we are talking about here.
One thing I like to say in the favour of the developer, my ATI Radeon 9100(not IGP but remake of 8500) works out-of-the-box all you have to do is to enable desktop settings.
I also like to get all the menu’s in danish language, now that takes a while, why is it when you install and choose danish from the menu, that its still english when its finished installing - very strange. After its finished installing you have to add main menu language for it to show danish in yast and controlcenter, but the main menu is still english untill you remove it from panel and chose another main menu.
The python installed don’t have Python-gconf, that’s a problem when a program you like to install, needs this.
I have tried alot of troubleshooting in this and still end up with having to re-install:(
To people who don’t care for eyecandy, and can use OpenSuse as it is, I will tell that 3D works just fine on Radeon 9100(8500(R200 QM)) compared to other distros like Ubuntu, PC Linux, PCOS, Mandriva, Debian - there it sucks, because you have to install the driver manual and then it might work, most of the time not.
So back to my questions:
How to unlock terminal totally, so i can use it as in any other distro?
How to get gnomenu installed without running into problems after install?
Are there any other way to edit the feel and look of the main menu?
And please people:) When you answer don’t refer to other pages, where you think the anser is but have not completely read what is said, not all cases are the same you know:)
I’m a newbie in Linux, but I’m learning slow by slow. I have been supporting pc’s with windows for 22 years, but in this i start from scratch. The idea is to switch to Linux totally when the time is right.
Thanx in advance
