I am currently considering the installation of an open source alternative to Facebook and the like.
Diaspora definitly is an option although it seems to be quite demanding and resource hungry. Another option is friendica. It's comparable to Diaspora but written in PHP. Additionally it seems to be at least less resource hungry in comparison to Diaspora.
Does anyone have experiences with one or even both of these community-driven decentralized social communities?

Since the (fresh) installation of 13.1 (64-bit) I've been having an issue where the mouse pointer disappears for about 20 seconds or so after I login. It is present at the login screen but after I submit my credentials and for about 15-20 seconds after I reach the desktop (GNOME) I am without a mouse pointer. What's interesting is that if I move my mouse to toward the top left (hot spot) the GNOME panel will move out so the mouse is working there's just no visible pointer.

Has anyone else seen this or does anyone have a suggestion?

I've had the problem since I installed 13.1 and only recently added an extension (CoverFlow Alt+Tab) so I don't think so.

Dear Geekos! The latest update of our applications is available and thanks to the hard work of your KDE packagers it will be available in the awesome openSUSE KDE Current repositories before you know it!
 
We're proud to announce the latest release of our Applications! Version 4.13 introduces lots of improvements all over, from Kate and Okular to Kontact and Palapeli. The new Semantic Search added to the (otherwise frozen) libraries brings great performance- and stability benefits.

Plasma Workspaces and our libraries are not part of this release as their respective teams are focusing on the transition to Frameworks 5. This release is translated into 53 languages; more languages are expected to be added in subsequent monthly minor bugfix releases.

We hope you will enjoy this release!

If you can, consider supporting us: developing software is hard work and we can use your contribution! http://jointhegame.kde.org/

Actually KDE:Distro:Factory was published right on the same moment with the KDE 4.13.  However please check this email that was send out before:  http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse/2014-04/msg00511.html

The delay for KDE:Current was created based on the reaction of most users of the KDE:Current repositories so that the major breakages can be avoided

Hello everyone! 
I commented that I have installed OpenSuse 13.1 on a Lenovo G480, everything works beautifully, except for some sudden freezes and kernel panics in the hibernate (not always) ... 

I have a Intel Pentium B980. 

I had already spent in the desktop PC versions 12.3 and 12.1. 

I hope you can give me a solution. 

From already thank you very much! 
Regards.

That has been a common recurring problem for some time. Enter the key words "opensuse hibernate panic kernel" in a search engine.

KDE 4.13 Availability

As you might have read on the KDE website or through blogposts, KDE 4.13 was officially released yesterday evening. 

As indicated KDE 4.13 is currently only available through KDE:Distro:Factory, however the target is to have KDE:Current delivering the KDE 4.13 packages around Friday 25th April. This would allow us to validate if there are any major breakages and to properly prepare the packages for a wider audience. 

For those that are considering to switch to KDE:Distro:Factory, please keep in mind that this repo will be disabled for oS 13.1 as soon as the KDE 4.13 packages are available through KDE:Current. In first instance we will just disable the builds, however the packages itself will be deleted around 30 April. So if you are currently running KDE:Current it would be wise to wait just a little more than to switch repositories now.

Hi, I'm really sick trying to enable the access through the user in Samba.

I want a way with the graphical interface because I want to show the steps in a tutorial for newbies.

P.D.: Operating system --> openSUSE 13.1.

Hello guys and girls,

I've got a problem on my netbook Asus Eeepc 1225C. Since the backup to 13.1 have I three weird things:

1. After a few sleeps and waking up, the energy management of KDE doesn't work anymore: it doesn't go to sleep automaticaly when on for too long, sometimes (not allways) it doesn't go to sleep when the lid is shut, when I press the power button it doesn't show the logout menu but shut the computer up directly. What is funny is that, when this bugs occurs, the systemtray icons of KDE change of style to go back to the Oxygen standard colorfull style...

2. The icon set of LibreOffice has changed to an ugly fluorescent style. Changing back to Oxygen in LibreOffice options doesn't change anything.

3. The sound input does not work correctly (it did in 12.3).

I've made a clean reinstall of 13.1. The result for the three bugs were this:
1. It increases the delay for the bug to come (which is good).
2. It solved the bug... for a few weeks. And then it came back.
3. It didn't change anything... (even worse)

As anyone experienced such weird bugs/regressions on an Eee PC or other laptops?

Any clue?

Thanks in advance.

With the sleep/wake issue, I don't think it's a linux/suse bug.
While a computer is suspended to RAM, the CPU is off (all cores).
This way, there are no more RAM refreshes even if the RAM modules are powered. This way, you could see your RAM as sort of a powered  NVRAM.
All nice and great but, in real world, RAM is susceptable to errors from bad/noisy power supplies, poor (less-than-perfect) contacts, EM interference from external and internal sources and even cosmic radiation.
Just think about it. On single bit being flipped by a gamma photon will result in that data block being corrupted.

On my Acer D250, I'd be able to suspend-resume about three to four times before a serious RAM corruption occurs and I have to reboot.
I'd wipe clean (izopropil)  those RAM sticks pins and sockets but a EM noise is much harder to locate and eliminate.

Thank you very much, +Thomas Abraham .

I'm thinking to switch from VirtualBox for some time and probably I need to revert the process.

The latest version of brackets an editor I believe to be better than sublime in functionality and the fact it is full opensource is available in OBS thanks to Robert from Adobe.

Give it a try, it truly is an amazing editor with an already large range of plugins for all things web + python, ruby etc.

#openSUSE   via -> +Markus Rückert 

On Tuesday 2014-04-15 we will migrate download.opensuse.org to a new machine. The downtime will start at 11:00 and we hope to be done until 13:00. We actually expect it to go faster and we will announce when this is the case.

Thank you for your understanding,

   Your openSUSE admin team

I want to set up dualboot between OpenSUSE and Windows 8. Each OS will be on separate hard drives. Also I want the GRUB bootloader to installed on the HDD that I want OPENSUSE to be on. THe idea is that my PC will boot to Windows by default but if I want to boot into Linux, I would need to hit F12 and choose the Linux drive from the BIOS bootloader. THis way Linux stays hidden when I don't use it. 

THe problem is in the OPENSUSE 13.1 install DVD, I don't know what option to choose to do this. Choosing the MBR option looks like it will overwrite my Windows boot record. Choosing the /dev/sdc2 root option looks like it would be the right option but when I chose this and boot from it, it sends me to grub rescue where I have no idea what to do from here. It gives an error where it can't find /boot/grub/i386/something file. ANy ideas?
