You are running what now

I am so curious what all of the OpenSUSE people are running on the their desktops. Of course i mean the DE you are running and not the apps.

If you can, maybe say what version you are running and pro’s or contra’s if any.

At the moment i am running KDE 4.5 and its been great so far. But i am looking into Gnome 3 since it is actually a needier desktop (IMO).

Anyway, if there is a very different desktop you are running and its NOT included, please tell what you are running.


openSUSE 11.3, KDE 4.6.3

Desktop - openSUSE 11.4 Gnome 3.x and SLED 11 SP1 Gnome 2.x
Netbook - openSUSE 11.4 Gnome 3.x and SLED 11 SP1 Gnome 2.x
Server - SLES 11 SP1 Gnome 2.x

I’m running KDE 4.6.0 at present. I also have XFCE and LXDE installed, with gnome 2 also on one computer (and gnome 3 on a test partition).

For normal use, I prefer KDE 4, thoug XFCE and LXDE are also reasonable.

I was a gnome user and disliked KDE 3 for several years. But I don’t like the direction gnome has been taking, and I switched over to KDE 4 almost a year ago.

openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4.6.3

Exactly the same in my case.

On my laptop 11.1 with a modified kernel and KDE3.5 (because I work with it).
On my home PC: 11.3 with KDE 4.4.1 (I think this is the one that comes with the original repositories). It serves me to see when a change for me will be indicated on the laptop. As you see, I am still with 3.5 on the laptop. The main blocker is the unsatisfactory core application KDE PIM that does not present the same beautiful functionality up to now as in 3.5

When I ask KDE it says 4.6.0, this I guess that is it. It came with openSUSE 11.4

on the Desktop and on the Laptop: KDE 4.6.3 (openSUSE 11.4)

on an older Laptop: Gnome 2.30 (Ubuntu 10.04)

openSUSE 11.4 kde 4.6.3

I’m using only KDE4 now. I used KDE and Gnome until 2010 but i decided to settle for one DE.

OpenSuse 11.4 Gnome 2.32

I use gnome because I like it.

Gnome 3; only gripe I have is that the gnome group have this kind of ‘dumb it down’ philosophy which means very little in the way of configuration dialogs. Still, it’s fast, elegant and stable.

KDE 4.6.3 on the Desktop

Gnome 2.32 on the laptop, I tried Gnome 3 - it looks very slick but it doesn’t quite work for me and KDE is a little too sluggish on it for my taste, I will be moving to Xfce if and when Gnome 2 is phased out.

I’m running Gnome 3 atm also, and for he most part I’m absolutely loving it. However, I feel the same, I sincerely enjoy tinkering with things, especially how my desktop feels and it’s not as easy as I’d like to under Gnome 3, but I think I’ve gotten there. If you look at Web Upd8: Ubuntu / Linux blog they cover quite a lot of cool shell extensions, also Malcolm has done a fantastic job of packaging some of the better ones.

I am running openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4.6.0.

Running OpenSuse 11.4 KDE 4.6, and loving it more everyday!
