OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Recently Used Apps Area Empty After Reboot

Jul 22, 2010

Not earth-shattering, I don't suppose, but have noticed that since installing 11.3 (Fresh install, x64, DVD), the "Recently Used" list in the "Start(? Kicker??)" Menu, doesn't save applications through a reboot... ie, if I start Thunderbird, Open Office, whatever while logged in, these will then appear in the "Recently used" section of the menu, but then do a reboot, and the applications area in the recently used menu, will be empty. The "documents" area is fine, and shows stuff after a reboot, but not "applications"....

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Locate Recently Added Repository?

Aug 8, 2011

I had some issues with my touchpad on my Dell Laptop Latitude E6510.I found the site "" which is an OSS site for Dell products, Drivers, firmware, etc.Index of /repo/community.I followed the instructions on their site to add the repo to my system. When I run the 'wget' command that it tells me to run, it seems like everything goes fine. But I can't see the repo in YaST > Software Repositories. I ran the command on Friday last week so I don't have the exact output from which I ran this command the first time.

Software :: "notification-area" Shows Empty Contents?

Jun 29, 2010

Seriously, after a reboot, my gnome panel shows a notification area applet, but there are no status icons displayed. Normally I findwicd, hplip, volume, evolution, battery, etc after a cold boot.These did not show this time. I cannot find log entries that showtroubles with the notifier icon applets ... then I'm not sure what I would look for or where to look.I tried to remove the notification-area item from the panel and then reload it. This did not change anything.

OpenSUSE Install :: Current State Of Affairs With The UEFI/EFI Install Support On A Empty Hdd For X86_64?

Mar 21, 2010

I was thinking of trying out the UEFI support that HP has in my laptop BIOS in the next few days. My reasons is that I get a custom boot logo... and (hopefully) a better boot-speed. What is the current state of affairs with the openSuSE UEFI/EFI install support on a empty hdd for x86_64 does anyone know? (badly worded I apologize) This may seem naive but I have struggled to answer this with most posts being about Mac's for obvious reasons.

Specifically, Do I have to have any custom knowledge on formatting the HDD with a GPT partitions or does the installer do this for you? Secondly, How well does the UEFI bootloader tie in with the config tools in YaST2? (I would like to have UEFI but if it turns into some headache in setting up the boot area by hand each time the kernel updates I will forget it.) I can safely say this will be a machine with only openSuSE installed as an OS, no need for any others or any dual-boot problems. This isn't overly urgent and I will dedicate (at least) a whole weekend to tweaking once I buy a new disk and install openSuSE on it. If nobody knows then I will dive in head first and report how I find it and any problems (and severity).

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Log In After Reboot - Empty Home Folder

Dec 19, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my machine. I logged in and installed a few programs like wine. Everything went fine until I rebooted. Now, after I log in, it gives me 2 error messages: One about how it could not update ICEAuthority or something

Another about how usr/lib/libconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check2 returned status 256. Then, something else pops up about how Nautilus can't find or doesn't have permission to write to home/user/Desktop and ome/user/.nautilus. I tried booting in recovery mode and did a dir on /home, but nothing showed up, which makes me think that they somehow disappeared or they aren't being shown.

OpenSUSE Install :: All Filesystems Vanish (look Empty) After A While

Jan 17, 2010

I have a mysterious filesystem issue with openSUSE on an old machine. Installation wasn't very pleasant but worked finally. It boots fine. However after 5 or 10 minutes, all filesystems vanish. Most programs (but not all) cannot be found anymore. "ls" output is empty everywhere. "top" used to work (it was working on a ssh connection that I just lost). Now it complains about unset TERM variable. I was able to set it again to xterm. Now "top" is working, displays the running processes : mysqld, Xorg, icewm (my WM), nothing strange there, nobody is eating up the resources. I have other linux installed on that machine : Ubuntu freezes occasionally, mostly with Gnome, but it seems to be a totally different problem (maybe related to the radeon driver) ; Mandriva works fine so far. The two IBM 120 GB harddrives are quite old but the manufacturer fitness test didn't find failures. I also checked for bad sectors before formating in openSUSE setup. It doesn't look like a physical I/O problem. In such a case, it would crash or at least complain about not being able to access the HD. Well ... I switched to console but I didn't get any login prompt and now I cannot switch back to X. I can still ping the machine but of course not ssh to it. SysReq keys (although enabled) doesn't work. I guess I will have to reboot brutally. Last time it took me about one houre of pressing 'y' tp repair the filesystem with Ubuntu. I'm sure I will be back soon. What do you guys think about that situation ? I suspect a kernel issue with that hardware. Have you heard about similar problems ? I'm afraid I will have to reinstall 11.1, which used to work fine, on that machine.

Some details about the hardware : The (onboard) Promise controller and the SATA controller are not used. The 2 HD are on the first IDE interface as master and slave.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Installation To Empty 2GB Partition

Mar 26, 2010

I gave upon 11.3 M4.Tried installation by text mode but there's another screen showing various USB devices status superimposing on the Linux text install. Returned to Live installation via Live CD. Installation completed > restart >autoconfig failed. Tried live installation again but Suse kept suggesting installing into one of the empty 2 Gb partitions. Also had problems with Gparted Live 0.5.1-1 CD because somehow the keys froze. Had to replace it with 0.5.2-1. I am installing 11.2 on a laptop but right now I am stuck with frozen "Creating cache files for fontconfig". This has taken over an hour and nothing seems to be happening. I have successfully installed openSUSE 11.2 on an older laptop and a desktop. Also experienced installing Windows 7, Ubuntu and PC-BSD on both types of machines.

OpenSUSE Install :: Empty User List Pre-logon

Dec 14, 2009

Sometimes my user list is empty on start-up. When it happens the buttons beneath the empty list (shutdown, suspend and restart), are not responding. As a work-around I login to the first terminal as root to restart the machine and usually my normal user account appears back on the list. This morning the reboot work-around didn't work any more..

Ubuntu :: Can't Open Terminal And Other Apps After Automatically Update And Reboot

Sep 24, 2010

I did an automatic update and rebooted this morning and I now have a bit of a nightmare situation where I can't open the majority of applications, including the terminal. When I rebooted, my desktop loaded as normal, but then when I try to open the terminal (from Applications -> Accessories or from my quick launch panel), nothing happens other than the quick launch panel disappears for a second then reappears. This is the case for most other apps, but not for Chrome (obviously).

EDIT: Used Alt+F2 to open the terminal, ran safe upgrade and then rebooted, but still having the same issue. As Ubuntu was booting, there was a "Broken pipe" message, which didn't stop the boot process but is still a bit worrying. I've run a file system check but this hasn't resolved the problem either.

OpenSUSE :: KDE - Same Recently Used Applications On Every Login

Sep 8, 2010

I keep getting the same recently used applications when I log in. Even if I haven't used them recently. I'm noting this by the fact that googleearth and kcalc appear in the list and I haven't used either program in some time. If I start a program it shows up in the list but if I log out/in the list is back to the "old" list. Even if I right click and clear the recently used applications list they come back with the next login. The recently used documents seems to be functioning correctly. I'm sure the answer is check/delete something in ~/.kde4 but I have know idea what to check/delete.

OpenSUSE :: Clear 'recently Used Documents' Within The Kmenu Nothing Happens?

Dec 6, 2010

I try to clear 'recently used documents' within the kmenu nothing happens, i.e. the list is not cleared, until I reboot or log out and back in again. It's an old issue but thought I'd just ask if there are some fix for this. There is another small flaw on my system as well which is with refreshing the content displayed in a directory using dolphin (and possibly other file-viewers/apps). For instance, if I unpack a tar/rar/zip package I have to manually refresh dolphin for having it display the new extracted folder.

OpenSUSE :: Cannot Find Recently Added Font?

Sep 6, 2011

I just recently downloaded a font of .ttf format (truetype I believe). I tried adding the font to a couple of places but still can't find it in any applications.My goal is to use the font in GIMP. Even tried using it in Libre Writer, but still no luck.If I simply double click the ".ttf" file, it opens a window that shows all the letters in the font and the "Quick brown fox jumps." sentence. It also shows data about it like Name, Style, Type, Size, Version, etc... And there is a button on the bottom-right of the window that says "Install Font", and when I click it, it doesn't seem like anything happens except the button becomes greyed out and says,"Install Failed" (can barely read the greyed out text though).

OpenSUSE :: Zypper Error While Attempting To Install Apps

Jan 5, 2011

OpenSUSE 11.3
Zypper 1.4.8-0.2.4 (i586)

When attempting to run commands of zypper:

$ sudo zypper install <XXX>
$ sudo zypper help
$ sudo zypper services


I looked through my command history to verify I hadn't done anything stupid. The only thing I had done since my last zypper command was to install ngspice....WITH zypper.

Looks to me like is corrupt.

Is there a way I can "update" or reinstall with an uncorrupted version without bricking my OS? I looked into uninstalling from Yast Software Manager (GUI) but it throws all kinds of warnings about how it can't complete operations and it will break links and I'd like to avoid it unless a guru says otherwise.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: DVD Drive Start Working Bad Recently In KDE 4.4.3?

Jun 11, 2010

I have like a month using the KDE 4.4 from factory without problems since a month to now, but suddenly, since yesterday KDE doesnt mount my DVDs or CDs in my internal drive, and of course, doesnt burn anything, so i was wondering if this has something to do with the fact that im using factory or its a known bug or what should i check? I have dual boot in this computer, and in win the drives works without problem.

Should i go back to KDE 4.3.5? If you need some output or something tellme, all i can say know is that appears an error when i excute the command "eject" about something going wrong with ioclt... But it appears some times, and others dont.

OpenSUSE Install :: Fresh Install 11.4 Blocks At Splash Screen On Reboot

Jun 30, 2011

I ordered a SuSE 11.4 installation DVD from an online Linux Distro distributer that I've used before with no problems. I did this rather than burn my own DVD from the website. I thought that I might perform a fresh install of SuSE 11.4 on this Dell 1420 Laptop that is currently running Ubuntu 11.04.

Note, this is a completely fresh install, not a side-by-side installation with Ubuntu; I followed the installation sequence that completely repartitions the entire disk for SuSE, and accepted all of the suggested options regarding logon, etc.

Everything goes well ... sort of. The first install didn't reboot correctly, i.e., the set-up that is supposed to run after the initial install never happened and I had to manually power-down the machine and restart from the "safe mode." Needless to say, that didn't work as expected. So, I re-install, from scratch, trying different options: for instance, instead of LVM, I decide to have an un-encrypted partition scheme and accept the "obvious" options ... thinking that the LVM options interacted badly with the install. Eventually I get the installation to proceed correctly, or so it appears: it goes though the entire sequence, including the re-boot, building the default image, etc.

I test this image by removing the DVD, power-cycling the machine, and all looks good, so I begin the process of installing software updates, etc. Being paranoid, I re-boot the machine, and all restarts correctly, etc.

Now here's the annoying thing. The next day, I power the machine on, and it locks at the splash screen. By the way, these are the exact symptoms that I experienced with the bogus/incomplete installations. The boot sequence proceeds up to the splash screen and waits forever.

So, in sum: I spent inordinate amounts of time attempting to install this software, carefully following the instructions provided by the installer. In every instance, after leaving the machine off for a day or so and rebooting, I am met with a splash screen that sits forever. Needless to say, I am extremely reluctant to repeat another day of software installation to only have to re-start with no assurances of success. Either I go back to ugly Ubuntu (which has always worked out of the box, by the way), or I look at other options. I was hoping to use SuSE, but I really don't care which distro is on that machine as long as it works and it provides TeX, R, Emacs, Scheme, and a few other software packages that I'm sure are of no interest to your customer base.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 64bit Install Freezes After Reboot During Autoconfiguration - GeForce 9300 Chipset (MCP7A)

Sep 15, 2010

I just wanted to install openSUSE 11.3 64bit. Installation works fine until reboot request. It switches to console, saying that it tries to load without reboot, screen becomes black, i got a cursor with animated wait-symbol and then it freezes. Can't move the mouse, no reaction on keyboard inputs, HDD-led not blinking. If I reset my PC and boot the new installation, it says that an error occurred and asks me to complete the unfinished installation. It starts auto-configuration and freezes again at about 3%. I tried again and some time it did not start the graphical yast but in textmode. The freeze came at the same position, but it posted many lines on console with error messages. I could not scroll, so I saw only parts of it, saying kernel panic and many addresses.

I guessed that it has to do with my chipset and graphics card, it is a nVidia GeForce 9300 chipset (MCP7A) with onboard graphics. It works fine with openSUSE 11.2 64bit by the way, but it was not supported in earlier versions than 11.2. So I tried to install it with proprietary drivers. I started the installation again and added the nVidia repository and a Packman repo and selected the driver which works fine on 11.2. Error was same as above. Next I tried an openSUSE 11.3 32bit Live CD that came with some PC magazine and lay around and it is booting and works fine!

This was confusing to me, so I wanted to try the 64bit version of the live CD. Which was again not booting. It freezes at some part, maybe when it tries to start X. But it also freezes booting with 'nomodeset' (found it somewhere here), in VESA mode and even in textmode! So i guess it's not X what causes the freeze. But it is sometime at the end of booting up, as far as I can say. I would like to use the 64bit version but I don't know where to search for the problem. I checked every checksum before burning, so a broken media should not be the reason

OpenSUSE Install :: Panel Bar Changes After Reboot

Mar 22, 2010

I use the Air openSUSE theme for my panel bar, etc., yet, after rebooting (or starting up the computer after it has been shut down), the panel bar comes up as if it were configured with some kind of black theme, which I do not like - you can still see things like icons for windows, launcher, etc. except for the clock, since its font color is black.

How do I put a stop to this? I have tried everything I can think of, customized settings, different themes, and so on, yet I get the same results after booting into openSUSE.I am using the openSUSE 11.2 KDE version.
