There's so much here, and I've learned so much about fixing any Linux related issues that I have. Maybe I should write some stuff to help... I hope that I can contribute something to make these bits worthwhile.

Installing ATI drivers in OpenSUSE 11.1

Posted 03-02-2009 at 11:37 PM by phoenixrising (Learning Something Everyday about Linux)
Updated 03-02-2009 at 11:43 PM by phoenixrising

I was trying to install/enable drivers for my ATI video card in OpenSUSE:

1. In my case the typical 1-click-installs didn't work

2. The best way (I guess) is to do it the hard way -- download the driver from the ATI site and manually configure/build/install it; This guide worked for me. Note: for openSUSE 11.1, instead of 103 use 111)

3. All the desktop effects are working now and as a welcome side-effect, openoffice.org is not crashing anymore like it...

Remember to use the X11 video driver in mplayer (and not the xv driver) to avoid flickery playback...

Sometimes you'll find some files in your trash that just won't go away. And unlike what many forums say, the Trash in Gnome is not in the .Trash directory in /home (At least not in my Fedora 10 and Linux Mint). So this is what you'll have to do:

Code:
sudo rm -rf ~/.local/share/Trash/files/*
Yes, that's correct: the Trash folder is in /home/<yourusername>/.local/share/Trash
Quote:

WARNING: Be very careful about "sudo rm -rf" --it's a very powerful
