Just received my copy of SuSE 9.2 Pro and completed a clean install on my
Toshiba Satellite 2435 laptop. For whatever reason, the laptop's touchpad was
not detected/installed correctly. Using the laptop has become extremely
difficult. The mouse opens *almost* every window and app that it trails over
and hardware clicking/tapping doesn't work. I don't recall what driver I've
used in the past with SuSE and this laptop--truth is, I never looked.
Currently I'm using the generic PS/2 Mouse (Aux-Port) driver as indicated in
the Hardware section of YaST's Control Center and the touchpad is somewhat
functional, albeit with irritating side effects. With previous versions of
SuSE the touchpad was detected/configured correctly and without my
intervention. Anyone using SuSE 9.2 with a similar machine?
Searches on SuSE's Support Portal turned up zero articles related to ALPS
This is a snippet of dmesg, related to the mouse/touchpad:

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Since updating my Suse 9.2 to KDE 3.4, Xvnc (started via xinetd) does
not start KDE anymore.
When I connect to the specified port, I get a grey screen and an X mouse
pointer, but no KDE login. I get nothing in .xsession-errors (I guess
because Xvnc is being started by user nobody) and nothing in
vncserver works OK.
I haven't used apt on SuSE yet, only on Debian, so this question might
just be for my own edification, do you still have to run "apt-get
update" to retrieve an updated list of packages?

Strange. I can see them all, but apt update doesn't get file lists which
contains these files. I have (beside others) the repositories:
Has anyone found a fix for the kweather problem in 9.3? I tried rebooting, and
got a partial fix. Some stations work, but wouldn't you know my local
stations show they are down for maintenance. However, when I boot to my 9.1
install those same stations are working fine.

Tried installing thru Synaptic, didn't show up as a choice, Uninstalled,
installed again, still no joy.
In searching I find others having the same problem with Suse and Icewm.
So, I suppose I need instruction on how to manually edit the file that
the window manager reads for choices.
Has anyone else faced this problem, and if so, how was it resolved.
I am running 2 SuSE boxes, one with 9.2, the other one
with 9.3 installed. The 9.2 box comes with KDE 3.3.0,
9.3 comes with KDE 3.4.0.
Playing around with Kwrite and various language
settings I found the following:
Kwrite in a german language environment takes 1.9
seconds to start at the 9.2 Box, but 4.0 seconds at
However, kwrite in a chinese language environment
takes 11.3 seconds to start at the 9.2 Box, but "only"
5.2 seconds at 9.3.
While I like the better chinese language environment
performance, I am verry unhapy with the bad
performance under the german language environment.
It seems to me, that this has somethin to do with xft.
By reducing the number of fonts, application startup
times can be reduced enormous.
The 9.2 box comes with 634 fonts. After reducing font
count to 2, kwrite takes about 1.9 seconts to start
under the german language environment, but only 3.6
seconds under the chinese language environment.
Compare this with the startup times with 634 fonts
Reducing font count at th 9.3 box fron 734 to 2 hase
the same effect: kwrite, german environment 2.1
seconds, chinese environment 3.9 seconds.
Is this some xft related bug? or is it normal
Shouldnt application startup times be independet from
the number of fonts installed?
takes 1.9 seconds to start

Hi! I have just destoyed my pc.
I have suse 9.2 and i used apt-get to install
packages... the problem is that the apt-get corrupted

now.. Plz tell me what to do in order to rescue the
kdeinit gives me the following error
kdeinit: symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib/qt3/lib/libqt-mt.so.3: undefined symbol:
Any good suggestion?
I think that i should find the rpm packages and
reinstall them....I dont know where i can find
packages and how to install them...
Thx.. Have a nice day
Stay connected, organized, and protected. Take the tour:
I just purchased suse 9.3 and I am doing a fresh install. Everything has gone
well except for decrypting email.
I have kgpg running and all setup (all private and public keys imported, etc.)
I have kmail setup and I can send and retrieve email.
However, when I receive an encrypt email, Kmail says that my passphrase is
bad. But it didn't ask.
Kmail does work for checking the signature of email (but only if they are not
Kmail does ask for my passphrase when I can send encrypted email.
I find this very frustrating. I am upgrading from suse 9.1 which setting up
gpg in kmail was done in 2 minutes! I have been souring the web and finding
things to try (like starting gpg-agent?) but nothing is working.
Anyone on this list find a solution for suse 9.3?
Please reply to only this mailing-list so others can take part as well.
