Hey gang. I am brand new to openSUSE/Linux/KDE. I am trying to download openSUSE 11.2 and KDE 4.?. I have a Microsoft Optical Elite for Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I am at the step of filling in the username and password, but I can’t because the keyboard is not connected. I have a separate mouse that is working, so I have that at least. How can I connect the keyboard so I can fill in the username and password.
As I said I am new to this so simple is better.
Thankyou your help is appreciated!
Likely you will need to lay your hands on a normal keyboard.
Are you using the DVD or Live CD?
Did you boot to the live desktop or start the install directly from the boot menu?
If you were in the live desktop, I assume it worked from boot onward until you get to this stage of the installer?
I Booted from live desktop. And the keyboard or mouse didn’t work at any time. They would work only part of the time when I tried gnome, but I would have to try and connect them manually. I would use the onscreen keyboard to login.
Okie dokie. I’ll give that a try. Thank you for the help.

I had to edit the url you posted, it’s not permitted.
Good luck with your install.
Oops, my appologies. Thanks.
I’ve also installed 11.3, and have yet to get my Dell BT Mouse working. It was paired with my laptop previously (Dell XPS M1530), and I had it working once yesterday, after a reboot. Now the blue light never comes on except when I start the laptop and move the mouse, and can only use the Touchpad. When I move the mouse, I sometimes get a dialog box that asks to trust the local device trying to connect…for which I always select “Always Trust”. Any ideas here?
