I have problems with LEAP OpenSUSE 42.1. When you start the operating system, controls the brightness of the display work well, but if the laptop goes into sleep mode, when the laptop return from sleep, the brightness control does not work anymore (until reboot). Any help please?

Seems the problem is with Toshiba and Thinkpad laptops.

Hi!!

I want to try OpenSUSE with Gnome, Leap or Tumbleweed, but before installing I've some doubts. I'm specially interested in the performance and smoothness of Gnome Shell with old AMD hardware, AMD Phenom II N620 and ATI Radeon HD4250, 4 GB RAM and a Samsung SSD.

I have tried it with several versions of Ubuntu and Fedora, also Antergos, but always had a poor experience with the desktop effects opening Activities, laggy and choppy animations, especially with three or more open apps.

Any help or experience will be really appreciated, thank you very much and best regards!! :D

The latest update to Tumbleweed included KDE Applications 16.08. However, after the update, the applications are still branded as 16.04. Do I have to run $$ zypper dup to make this change? Thanks in advance for any help.

It seems there is some kind of bug in openSUSE Leap (42.1) with the "wicked.service".
It takes up to 17-18 seconds to start. I had a very slow boot, about 23 secs with openSUSE Leap in my SSD.
A workaround I used, was to disable "wicked" and enable "NetworkManager" instead. After that... see the screenshot.
Hope this helps someone, till this bug gets fixed.

Hi! Help me with advice pls. Fresh and original question ;)
I have ssd and hdd for fresh installation (it will be a desktop for web-testing with docker, some VMs and DBs maybe - nothing specific) and as recommended plan to place / on sdd, and move /home, /var/log and swap to hdd. I want to use btrfs on both discs and also make separate partition with ext4 for VMs on hdd.
1) Is it possible to move all snapshots from ssd to hdd?
2) What is the best way to use two btrfs together?

Image by request "hard disc drive":

I am working on a review of openSUSE Plasma on Dell XPS 13. I have a brother printer. The printer tool of KDE failed to detect the networked printer so I downloaded and installed drivers as instructed on Brother site. It asks root password every time I want to open printer settings. At the same time I can't print anything. It just shows them as pending tasks but when I try to pause or cancel it asks me root password. Why do I need root password for printing?

I wanted to confirm with the community if I was not doing anything wrong before I mention this in my story. So feel free to suggest.

+Jan Steen Yast works great for most brother printers, a few aren't fully supported and you need to download and install the driver files (from Brother) manually, then set up the printer from within yast.

Tomorrow, thursday should be the release day of Leap 42.2 Beta 1, as it is the last thursday before the 31 aug. (https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Roadmap)

Does anybody else have problems running latest 4.7 kernel on #Tumbleweed?

If I update to kernel 4.7.0 on my Intel NUC system, there are about 1000 kworker processes running and the system becomes unstable after a while. I tested with all the frequent kernel updates from the last days.

I don't have problems on another machine, so this might be something special with the NUC.

I also tried latest 4.7.1 kernel from the standard kernel repo, but that did not help. I had to downgrade to a 4.6.x kernel in order to go back to a well running Tumbleweed.

BTW: I found it very hard to downgrade to an alternative kernel on Tumbleweed. I would really appreciate if there would be more choices to select an older kernel.

+Ralf Krüdewagen​​ use -2 or -3 to keep more old kernels. i am not sure maybe there is an option to keep a specific kernel all the time....
maybe a older kernel from opensusebuildservice can fix your problem. leap has a 4.1 LTS kernel.

I always check the openSUSE Factory ML to see if any one is having issues. However, I usually update every time an update is available.
The most recent update includes Grub2 patched.

GNOME Shell has some good looks by default, but it can be better. Themes are CSS packages to style your desktop, and here are ten of the best.

Indeed, or based on Gnome shell: https://github.com/tista500/Adapta/blob/master/README.md#supported-desktop-environments
But I find the installation from github source easy enough. 1 download and 3 commands is all it takes. 😉

In my effort to find the most suitable distro for my main laptop I have decided to give opensuse kde a go. I tried it in a VM first and really liked it but when I tried to do an install to hardware, it didn't automatically configure my wireless card and quite frankly I didn't know how to fix that so I just canceled the installation. This is the first distro I've tried where wifi didn't work out of the box. Do I need to run ethernet first to download updated drivers for the wifi card or am I just not selecting the right options during the install? Because it sees the card but doesn't configure it.

+Gorgy Debor you shouldn't. It doesn't overwrite Windows by default. But you can read the install manual at the documentation site I posted earlier and go through the install slowly and carefully verify each step if you're worried. Especially the disk partitioning step. Make sure that the Windows partition(s) are not set for formating in the partitioner setup before you proceed with completing that step.

Hi everyone. Recently I tried to install Cheese on my openSUSE 13.2 and it gave a missing gstreamer plugin error. Long story short, I broke my gstreamer configuration and now I can't play mp3 files. Remove and reinstall gstreamer is almost impossible (because dependencies). So I was wondering which is the best way to backup an openSUSE system without including users files, so if I'm ever facing a similar situation again, make a quick backup and if I break something, might be able to restore to the last working configuration. Thanks in advance.

+Pașca Alexandru thanks, but I actually have / and home on different drives but I'm looking for a little less drastic solution. I don't know if openSUSE backup system provides a way to backup system snapshots or something like that.
