Why can't linux find the mouse?
I have just gotten my SuSe Workstation installed and its running great! Well,
other than a few modules not loading correctly but never the less. The
problem Im having is my DVD Rom drive is not working correctly and I cannot
burn a CD with my RW.
Both drives are IDE drives. Ive tried searching for the answer but alas,
nothing to found for my particular setup. Any Ideas, or links would be

I tried that and it still takes a very long time to load.

Subject: Re: [suse-kde] Launching Java apps in KDE
Try java -jar ./AppName.jar in the app directory.
I've not confirmed this, but I'm guessing the java launcher searches your
entire PATH if you leave out the catalogs from the file spec.

I just installed JRE 1.4.1_01 on my SuSe 7.3 Pro / Intel PC
I can confirm the installation was successful by typing 'java -version'
Now, I have a java app I want to run.
The app is located at /some_pathname/app/AppName.jar
If I enter the following:
cd /some_pathname/app <-- switch to directory
java -jar AppName.jar <-- THEN launch app
... the java app will launch, but it takes a VERY long time to start up
(maybe 2 minutes)
however, if I enter the following instead:
java -jar /some_pathname/app/AppName.jar
... the java app will launch almost immediately.
For my purposes, I need to be in the directory that contains the app BEFORE
I launch the app (as in the first example). Can anyone tell me why this
method takes much longer? I suspect it may have something to do with a path
setting but I do not know where to set this.
i use a suse 7.3. and in the meantime i updated kde to 3.0.2. Since the step
to the major version 3 I do have some trouble with the yast2 modules in the
kde control center. They appear in the tree structure on the left but once i
want to open them I get following message
Error - KDE Control Module
There was an error loading the module
The diagnostics is:
- An error occured during your last KDE upgrade leaving an orphaned control
- You have old third party modules lying aroound
What happened there? I recall that I installed some packages from the update
directory for 8.0 (I think this was posted on this list as a solution to have
the modules in KDE 3) in order to get the modules back in. Was it
susehelpcenter or susewm or kdebase3-SuSE? I do not know.
Does anybody know how to bring the modules back to live? Best with 7.3
packages. Which packages are relevant for that so that I can downgrade to the
7.3 packages and what do I need to change to have the yast2 modules in the
control center as in KDE 2.x. Or do you have any other suggestions?
Thanks for your help
In KMail's config there is an option to replace known subject prefixes
for answered and forwarded messages.
For German users this could be 'AW:' to be replaced with 'Re:'.
Would be a nice feature IMHO if it actually worked for me.
Did anybody encounter similar problems or does anyone have an idea how
to fix this one?

I posted this problem some weeks ago: Writing accentuated characters like "é"
or "â" (hope this gets transported right via eMail) in the standard
configuration of SuSE 8.1 is a pain in the bottom: You had to hit [Shift] +
[Alt Gr] + ['] + (release [Shift]) + [E] to get "é" instead of using
overstrikes just like in Windows, where you just press ['], release it and
then press [e]. You know what I mean.
The solution to get this easy behaviour is editing the XF86Config: In the
section "InputDevice" for keyboard, delete or comment option "XkbVariant"
"nodeadkeys". This has helped for me and I'm very happy to have this
An evil mind is a great comfort.

Occassionally, I click on the panel button to lock my current session and
nothing happens. In fact, any method I try to lock the sessions does not
work. I can logout completely, but just not lock the session. However,
sometimes it works. The only "non-standard" thing I have is VMWare. It
**seems** like this only happens when VMWare is running, but since I use
VMWare all of the time, it is difficult to say if it really is so. Any ideas
or suggestions would be greatly appreaciated.
