1. Kmenu > Tools > System Tools > System Settings
Input Devices > Mouse.

2. Probably something in the KDE System Settings, but don't use anything on the panel so can't help on that. Works correctly if I add a launcher to the panel for Firefox, so not sure.

I'm using Mageia 3 beta 3 (I believe they used to refer to it as the Cauldron?), and so far it's running *very* well, with a few minor understandable beta-y glitches.

I used and loved Mandriva until 2010, and decided to give Mageia a try since Kubuntu was crashing and running hot on my laptop. So far I have to say that it's everything I loved about Mandriva, but updated to make better use of my resources. I may stick with this!

Hi, I've got Mageia 3 RC installed and updated today.

I had a bit of trouble getting the DVD install program to run, so

I used the Mageia3b2 dvd to start the install program off and switched disks while it was checking for hardware.

Worked well.

And is working well now, except the grub editor in mcc.

Otherwise this release is looking really good.

Cauldron is pre-release and testing. Mandy called it cooker!

Installed Mageia2 Gnome yesterday liked it, I have now put Mageia3 rc Gnome in it,s place Just as good, Had to install "sudo" but no biggy I like the way it looks and the option to use Gnome classic " at login" which I do like. Installed firefox 21 from repos, with regards to this post.

Everything worked out of the box

Great, welcome aboard. Mageia comes with an extensive selection of DEs & WMs, I prefer KDE & razorqt myself but to each their own.

You should check out the Mageia forums @ when you get a chance as well.

In the mean time, have fun and spread the word!
