Missing Computer Tab on Panel at bottom of Desktop.!!

Hello all,

I was working just find and the “Computer” GUI that is located on the panel that lets you have access to all CPU options went missing… I understand I can hit F2 and get them listed but I need it back on my panel strip at the bottom of the desktop!!

Best Regards,


Hello all,

Please don’t ask me how this happened but every since I ran this:

Maybe this will work:

There is a thing I have to do every time I do an update.
The link callled “/lib/libz.so.1” points to “libz.so.1.2.5” every time I update.
This renders all of my 32b software useless.
Google Earth, Skype, and Flash Player.

The fix is to open Dolphin-Super User Mode and do Properties of “/lib/libz.so.1”.
You will see the target as “libz.so.1.2.5”. If so just change that to “libz.so.1.2.3”

That fixes it for me every time, but it frustrates me that these lab guys don’t just do 64b Linux Builds. on my system

and the problem I have stated above occurred and now i get this error:

Error while creating client module sw_single

---- when trying to run the install and uninstall application. Can anyone please help me in resolving this. And, plus now google chrome will not even launch. What is going on. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Best Regards,


and when I go to the Terminal and type dolphin as superuser to revert this file back to the way it was:

and back to how it was in properties, I get this in the terminal:

dolphin: error while loading shared libraries: libbz2.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Someone please help me!!

Best Regards,


That was my advice about trying to get Flash Player to work on a 64 bit platform.

Now there are other things afoot.
Could you tell us more about your system?
Are you running 64 bits?
As well as the 64 bit version of openSUSE?
That is mainly what is needed.
The reason is that if you did this trick on a 32 bit system I think it won’t work.
As far as I can tell, a 64 bit system doesn’t use much here but that is not so in a 32 bit.
I can’t say I really know, but I sure hope so.
If it messed something up then we can fix it on the CLI.
We also need to know what the name of libz is in the /lib folder.
You just do:

:> cd /lib
:/lib> ls

Then look to see the name of libz.

:/lib> sudo ln -s libz.so.this is the ending that you need to fix] libz.so.1

make sure to replace the red text to match whatever that libz.x.x.x might be.

That should restore all that back where it was

I’m guessing your taskbar panel thing went missing, yes?
It is actually called a Plasma Panel and it confused me once or twice.
If it goes away you have to make it again.
I think you need to do this:
Look for one of those little plasma icons in the very corner of the screen and right click it.
“Unlock” (if it’s locked)
Then “Add Panel”
A panel will appear somewhere in the corner and it will have another little plasma icon in it then right click it and use panel settings.
Then there is a button that says more settings and maximize panel and center and it and set it to auto hide if that’s what you like.
Now looks just like the one you had but it’s blank.
Now you need to add the widgets you like.

Application launcher gives you all of your lists so you can start your stuff.
You probably want a system tray. I like mine.
Task manager is useful. You know it shows windows that are running.
You can also add some things to System Tray that don’t show by default.
Play with this thing. It is really cool.

IMHO this is not good. Operations like these will destablize a system. I don’t know what the solution should be, since I don’t know what else you’ve done, what the system may have done to correct the changes made. There should be no complaints about libz.
