Question Why is there no forum for SuSE?


I was wondering why the SuSE distro is not represented? I just installed SuSE 8.2 on my system and I am impressed! It rivals RH 9 so far. Installation went well and easy. Only problem I had is it does not support the printer I wanted to use(Canon BJC5100) It will support my BJC4400 so I am not lost. The KDE Desktop is really nice, quite a bit like the RH. All things including the Codec AC97 on-board sound is working. I would recommend it be considered by anyone who wishes to try out another easy distro.

I think LQ wants an official representative from the distro to be on board before they open a new forum. SuSE has so far not made one available. If you like SuSE (as do I), and want to see a SuSE forum here, you should contact them, and politely ask them to consider providing a representative.

Take a look at www.turboprint.de. It kicks ass with superior output, control and supports all canon's features not free but worth it. in any case I just checked my 8.2 install and bjc 5100 is there just look a bit further down the list
