If you want the latest version of xorg like that you'd be much better off just upgrading to Suse 9.3 where its packaged.

I'd think for most themes you don't need the latest version of xorg - themes are specific to the desktop environment you're using, which defaults to KDE on Suse. Have a look at http://www.kde-look.org/ for KDE themes, most should work even on a slightly older KDE version as you'll have with 9.1. Having said that 9.3 is meant to be a lot better (once you setup the repositories to allow MP3 playback - google for it or search this site).

enlightenment?

I was hoping to install enlightenment but its to confusing. I shall have to try another time. I crashed my system trying now i gotto reinstall.



A daily thing.

thank you for the link

Is there anyway i can find out how to install enlightenment and what it needs or ? not sure what to ask.

I like enlightenment. I have suse 9.1 and a slow connection so will have 9.3 next month

Is there a way to install it without needing the x11 or if not how do i do this?

thank you for help.

When installing stuff on Suse you need to use YAST. Trying to compile enlightenment or X11 from source is difficult and time consuming and very non-userfriendly. If you are in a graphical environment (ie. not a command line) you already have X11 installed and running. I'm sure Suse would include enlightenment somewhere on their repositories so that you can get it easily through YAST.
