I'm working on completely changing from XP to linux - right now I'm typing this from SuSE 9.0 that i installed via FTP. Overall this distribution is great and I love it lots but I have 3 key problems that are pretty much deal breakers for me and was hoping someone could help me out with it before i go crying back to windows:
Problem #1: Java.
I use hushmail alot and it requires Java to work - I've installed SuSE as I mentioned via FTP and have only installed programs via YaST, I can't get Java to work in Mozilla and its driving me nuts. I get the prompt to install the plugin and it fails - so i log into kde as root and install it, install says its fine but when i go back java still no work. Can someone tell me whats up?
Problem #2: Remote Destkop Feature
Was tickled pink when I saw this - but then I started playing with it and can't get it to work the way i want. With XP I could connect from work and use my desktop - I understand this is VNC but I can't get it to work via the webbrowser, it's just wierd and seems broken.
Problem #3: VPN Connection
Doesn't seem t obe anything in here thats going to help me get connected to my office - anyone have good suggestions?
