I just installed Suse 10.3 x86_64 Gnome. I have some questions about it since it is quite different than other distros.
1.) Is there a link somewhere that has a line by line description on how to get all the codecs so that Java, Flash, and other codecs so players like the ones from AOL can be seen and heard? Some places, I have a problem watching the videos eg: Movies, showtimes, theaters, movie trailers, celebrity photos, news, dvd, reviews - Moviefone , while others still have voice but no video. Of course, Java doesn’t work on Firefox either.
I just think it would be nice to be able to go anywhere on the internet and watch all the videos and see all the movement, play all the games, listen to all the music and stuff. Also, be able to play mp3’s, burn dvd’s, play dvd’s , really show off Linux as something equal to and/or better than windows.
2.) I have compiz fusion installed and Emerald theme manager installed yet none of the themes seem to work. It looks like some other theme manager is working and not the compiz theme manager. I cannot find where to change the manager from where it is to the compiz manager. I love my little x - on the upper right hand corner of a window, as it is I don’t really know how to close the window I’m in now. After the windows pile up, I simply reboot.
3.) Are Floppy disks still being used today? I haven’t used one one in over 10 years, yet there it is, right there on my desktop, my computer, and on the grub menu.
Thank you for your patience. Other major distros like ubuntu,fedora, mandriva have links in their forums where they show you how to remove the default programs add some other programs get the good stuff and voila! there you have a stereo, movie theater, internet playground,fully functional computer.
