I wonder if someone can please help a lady in need with a Linux question (or two...). I am a total newbie to Linux, have managed to install it (Suse) and actually even configure something in it (yay!
) But now I have 2 biiiig problems...
The usual problem...internet connection. I have configured modem and provider with Yast, it shows as Intel 82801 DB AC'97 Modem Controller, configured as ppp0 with provider MyHost. But I get this when trying to dial in:
pppd died: pppd options error (exit code 2)
I notice some others have asked the same on these forums, too, and nobody seems to know where this error comes from and why. But I am still asking, anyone?
I am Finnish, and managed to change my keyboard layout to Finnish and to show the special characters, but...now when I write something with OpenOffice, every space shows as a full stop! The text looks truly funny, every time I have hit space, there is a little full stop inbetween the words. Does anyone know how to change this?
Please speak slowly, I am a real blonde, and not very Linux savvy
THANKS so much for any help!
edited to add: if it matters, my computer is a laptop, a Fujitsu Siemens, 512 MB & Inter Centrino 1.6 Ghz processor.
