My update from 11.1 to 11.2 is good but I can’t find any way of setting a timed autosuspend to disk. It used to be in kpowersave but that doesn’t seem to be available. Is it simply a case of waiting for an 11.2 version to appear? Would the 11.1 version still work?
The other thing is that the task bar icon for switching desktops is missing and despite a lot of searching I can’t see how to get it back. Any help would be appreciated.
Ooops, yes you’re right - the power management thing works fine. I thought it referred to just switching off the screen - must try harder. Thanks for that.
That just leaves the desktop switching thing.
Thanks dale - the power management things has fixed it ok.
Re: switching, I refer not to users but desktops. There used to be a small group of rectangles in the task bar. You could switch desktops by clicking on them but now they aren’t there. You can select how many alternative desktops you would like in “System Settings - Desktop - Multiple Desktops” but I see no way of actually switching between them.
With openSUSE 11.1, I can detach the Pager, KPager, and place it anywhere on the desktop. Then, with the KPager showing icons corresponding to the applications open on each desktop, I can switch instantly to the desktop I require by simply clicking on that pager window.
Also I can slide applications from desktop to desktop via the pager.
I can’t find a way to set this up with 11.2, is it possible?
