I am using OpenSuse 11 with KDE 3.5.9 and Openoffice 2.4.0 on a HP Compaq dc5750 microtower.
When I type characters in either write or calc, after a short while (seconds), the focus switches to the filemenu. This is driving me nuts as I have to click on the document every time to switch the focus back.
Thought this might be a keyboard problem, but tried different models (I have a HP KB-0316) with no luck.
I think your best bet would be to download the iso again and burn another copy ( you could also burn another copy of the iso you did download and try again. Make sure you burn at a slower speed. I think the dvd is funky in the burn, and it is bad, and by a fluke of bad bits it still checks out ok. it is an unlikely occurence, but not impossible.
Many thanks for all the comments so far. I have a screenshot, but it doesn’t look very informative. It just shows a spreadsheet with the file menu open. A silly question: how do I upload the screenshot?
With regards to downloading the iso again, I may do that if everything else fails. It would explain why nobody else has this problem, considering how annoying it is.
I shall investigate further. In the meantime any further comments are welcome.
