I am a complete newbie on OpenSuse and on OpenSuse forums. I hope I open the thread in the correct section.
I have just installed OpenSuse 11.4 with XFCE environment on my Acer Aspire 5738Z.
Everytime I boot, I experience the following “strange” behaviours:
1 - I need to reconfigure manually the “capture device” with Alsamixer to change it from “micro” to “internal micro”. Even though I restore a taylored asound file with alsactl, as I used to do when I used Ubuntu, every time I restart my computer, the capture is on “micro” again.
2 - In the panel, I need to remove the Thunderbird launcher. I remove it everytime I log in on Suse, but it comes back after every reboot.
3 - Skype and Pidgin start automatically, even though they no longer are in my list of apps to start automatically after log in. (They once were, but then two instances of each tried to start at the same time).
Besides, I have another problem with the action button, the one that enables to shut down, restart, hibernate, etc. When I click on it, I will immediately be logged off.
I include the problem in this thread, since it may be related to my “session” issues.
I have to admit my first days with openSuse are quite a challenge. Any help will be more than welcome
