Please help. It's quite long but I want help.

I have just download the opensuse leap and going to install it along with Windows 10 in dual boot mode. I just want some clarity on install and use:-

1. Should I choose kde or gnome. Which is better supported (I have seen both on Ubuntu live session )

2. During install should I enable the addition repository or do it latter.

3. How to get software provided in Ubuntu studio like I can get the gimp, how to get registry compiled in one package like Ubuntu studio.

4. I used to download Ubuntu restricted extras for multimedia so what in size? And how to get them.

5. Is there any graphical software Center like Ubuntu in suse kde?

6. What's to do after installation of opensuse like update and ??

I am a very basic user without knowledge of command line, just want to run my computer like Windows 7 to do my stuffs (photo retouching and home video editing and some browsing) . Is opensuse perfect for me or should I stay with Ubuntu (in my last 4 years I only used gui and no problem there but as it's taking more memory I want to change something and open suse is going to my first trial after Ubuntu)

OK, we are going to piece meal this and the announcements that go along with it, and without further ado FINALLY

openSUSE Leap 42.2 is now available as an image in +Google Compute Engine.

The good news is that the machinery is finally rolling and thus the other platforms should not be too far behind.

+Robert Schweikert​ Too much associated cleanups you wanted to do and blocking you, it seems - I know this feeling.

Hi everyone, i'm a new opensuse user (former mint/fedora user) and i'm here to ask if there are plans to integrate, or maybe already exist, into yast a module for changing and managing the hybrid gpu like nvidia optimus.
I know there is bumblebee but seems it isn't under active development anymore and nvidia-prime is not officially provided by opensuse.
Thanks to everyone for reading.

I really like openSUSE. Using the Yast Control Center as a complete "systems controller" makes it a very powerful and easy to use module. Especially "Snapper" - the BTRFS snapshot control module as it allows the user to roll back changes to your system. This is a really outstanding feature.

There are additional modules available to add to Yast to create your own personal boot ISOs, for installation of custom repositories.

Have a question
Now running opensuse on 2 laptops (tumbleweed) and my gaming desktop (leap)

Have been running for years Kubuntu on all three

Virtual box on all three with Kubuntu gives me the option to host 64 bit. But opensuse on all three boxes only lets me host 32bit.

I have searched and all I can come up with is articles saying make sure virtualization is enabled in BIOS. My BIOS on all three machines don't have this setting. And if this was the case wouldnt Kubuntu not allowed 64 bit hosting as well? This seems to me to be an opensuse issue.

All three systems are 64 bit running 64 bit opensuse.

Any suggestions?

Can anybody say how to change the name of hard disk partition ('Gnome' and '401.8 GiB hard drive' as seen in the screenshot)

and a good app to format my pen drive. I was in Gnome before and used Gparted. What's the KDE equivalent ?

YaST's partition manager can do this fine. Just enter the fstab options in the dialog

Hey folks.
I just changed from Ubuntu to OpenSuSE and I love it!
I am going to build a new PC beginning next year. I definitely need a new powerful driver and would to do some video cutting and virtualization.
Do you have any idea and suggestions which components I should pick?

Re. Skylake: you should be fine with either Leap 42.2 or Tumbleweed.

It's a systemd problem. I encountered with it. To workaround it use autofs. It will mount shares only when you access them and unmount them if you don't use them for some time.
