So I’m relatively new to Linux, but I am getting along a lot better with openSUSE 13.1 and KDE then I was with Ubuntu 12.04 and Unity.
There are a few things that I cant figure out.
I installed using the liveCD and I don’t have the Plymouth bootsplash, it shows the text output of the kernel init.
I’ve read a whole bunch and tried:
plymouth-set-default-theme openSUSE plymouth show-splash plymouth --show-splash /usr/lib/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd
and nothing. I understand all the different splash screens but for the life of me not how the heck just to turn it on.
on a side note: how the heck do i set a default activity in KDE plasma? because i want my desktop to be in the “Desktop Icons” activity the whole time.
And a comment: Kmix is horrid. Truely horrid. why the hell by default would you allow 153% volume? and have no option to turn it off. And why does no linux distro ship with the ability to view all the Sound Device settings? I had to open the commandline alsamixer in order to turn off all the retarded default ON effects that screwed up my sound. /rant
But despite this, its actually pretty **** good at a lot of things, thanks for the great work.
