I'm finding linux, in general, very usable. But there are still some problems I'm finding.
I'm using SuSe9.2 on a compaq PC, running in KDE.
Problem #1: Internet videos don't play.
When I open up pages that have internet videos, Kaffeine Media Player 0.4.1 pops up and says "Xine-Error: No Input plugin". I havn't gotten any video's at all to work.
Problem #2: Printer isn't working.
I'm trying to print stuff and it doesn't work. I've noticed SuSe9.2 doesn't have an install package for the hp deskjet 3653. I'm thinking I need to download and install the driver for that printer, but I'm not sure where I should find it or how I should install it.
Problem #3: External USB drives not working
"Plug 'n Play" TEAC USB floppy drive and iomega Zip USB drive aren't working at all, not quite sure how to get linux to reconize them.
Problem #4: Email doesn't work
Using Kmail, I can't seem to get to either recieve or send emails.
Using these params and pop connection enabled by gmail:
 Some of the sharp ones among you might notice diffrent length passwords for the two screenshots. That was an error I made just now, even if the two passwords are right it still doesn't work[/edit]
I get this error message when I try to send:
and when I try to recieve nothing happens just a bar at 0% at the bottom of the screen.
Problem #5: Installing RPMs
I install RPMs, and it says they are installed, but I can't seem to use them. For example, I installed bittorrent rpm on my system, it is listed under installed, I have a folder on my desktop with name bittorrent, but it isn't in any /bin folder and it doesn't appear to be setup. What is left to do? As for .tar.gz, I have no idea. Any sort of detailed walkthrough on how to install things on linux would be nice.
Problem #6: Refresh Desktop
Right click > Refresh Desktop doesn't do anything. Often when I write out or save anything to the desktop, it won't appear untill I copy or move something using the GUI window. This isn't a real big problem, but I'm just wondering why it's there if it doesn't do anything.
Thanks for your patience. These are all the bugs I have accumulated over the past month of using linux. If you have any ideas on any of these, let me know.
