Oskar,

I haven't had any issues with my USB devices. As someone responded it might have something to do with permissions.
good luck! and I will be trying Gnome as soon as I get home!
Thanks Ronlau!

Hey guys!

I installed Gnome this morning and it looks awesome! I'm getting used to it pretty quick... I just have a question... How can I lock the session? I tried using Ctrl+Alt+L and nothing... It's very important for me to be able to lock it.

Thank Ronlau9 for your tips on how to install Gnome!

From 10.3 to 11.0 to 10.3

I installed 11.0 32bit KDE today. I was very happy with 10.3 but curious about possible improvements. I downloaded the DVD iso and burned it. The installation was INCREDIBLY fast. But I had problems almost immediately. I don't like Dolphin, the default file browser. It's missing a lot of Konqueror's features and appears to not be very configurable. I never did find a "copy to" or "move to" option. When I tried to use Konqueror, it kept crashing sporadically. But the worst objection was the flashes or "sparklies" on my screen which I could never cure regardless of how I set my video.

I re-installed 10.3. It took four times as long, but it works very solidly. Hopefully the 11.0 problems will be solved in the next versions. I loved 9.3, hated 10.0, suffered with 10.1. Less so with 10.2. But in my opinion 10.3 is flawless. I guess I'm hooked on x.3 versions. I can wait.

I had 10.3 installed but of course curious about new improvements and tools I installed 11.0. Everything went fine but what I just noticed yesterday is that if I'm playing music on Amarok and then go to a website that has music or any kind of sound it won't work! I have to close amarok or Kaffeine to be able to listen to a website or youtube.com for example.
hopefully they fix this! I never noticed this error on ver 10.3.

My experience of OpenSUSE 11 so far:

Installation: Very quick. Personally I didn't like the automatic hardware config feature, but I can see that this would be useful for a newcomer.

KDE4: Not impressed. I know a lot of people put a lot of time into it, but personally I really don't like the widget-heavy approach. Spent an hour or so switching off all the clutter, then lost interest and switched back to KDE3.5. Also really do not like Dolphin, much prefer Konqueror as a file manager.

Software installation: Much improved. I had massive package compatibility problems in 10.3 which eventually lef me to abandon it, no such problems in 11.

Overall it's gone OK so far, but on the other hand has been completely unremarkable. The first Linux distro that I ever used on a regular basis was SUSE 10.0 OSS - I never got 10.1, 10.2 or 10.3 to work properly (eventually switched to Kubuntu Gutsy when 10.0 was de-supported), so was really looking forward to 11, but I have to say that in terms of features and functionality, 11 doesn't do anything for me that 10.0 didn't and Kubuntu Gutsy doesn't.
