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.
Unter Suse 9.1 Personal hatte ich beim grafischen Einloggschirm eine Liste der Usernamen.
Unter Suse 9.3 Professionell ist diese liste verschwunden, dort habe ich nur zwei Eingabefelder für Namen und Passwort.
Wie bekomme ich die Liste wieder?
In Suse 9.1 personal I have a list with the User-names in the graphical login screen.
In Suse 9.3 professional thers is no list.
How can I get the list ?
I've downloaded a nice logout logo from kde-look.org, unfortunately I now find
myself with a large white frame around the logo and distorted buttons.
I've looked in the Control Center, /opt/kde3/share/ and asked at kde-look.org.
But still haven't found out how to remove the frame.
Can somebody offer a suggestion or advice?
All the best.

What is the path I have to enter in yast? The one for 3.4.1
won`t work (No instsrc on media).
The Structure in yast-source seems to have changed: No "media.1" "content" and
"directory.yas"t files there for 9.0 ?! Same thing on ftp.suse.com
I just upgraded to 3.4.2 and encountered a bug.
KDE seems to be ignoring my TMPDIR (and TEMPDIR) environment variables
*sometimes*. Specifically, aRTS will refuse to start and so on.
I have since reverted my TMPDIR and TEMPDIR environment variables so I
can get my sound back, but this is a long-standing issue I'd like to see
resolved. Why can't kde just use TMPDIR like everybody else?

i've a fairly uptodate install of SuSE9.3-ftp, upgraded from 9.2-ftp using
apt-get for pkg mgmt.
after my upgrade, i've had one nagging dependency that i can't seem to resolve
(well, 'safely', neway ...) w/o seemingly needing to rip-out-n-replace half my
given the apt output below, is there a way around this particular dependency?
at this point (my goole-bar is 'smokin' ...) , details would be appreciated!

Suse 9.3 prof.
How can I "copy" the kde-menu and kde-look from a User to another User?
Or, better: how can I set "my settings" (screen/desktop, Menu ...) as the default, so any new User has automatically my default settigs ?
Suse 9.3 Prof.
Wie kann ich die kde-Einstellungen eines Users auf die anderen User übertragen.
Oder, noch besser: wie kann ich "meine" kde-Einstellungen (Desktop, Menu ...) als Standard setzen, so dass jeder neu angelegte User automatisch diese Einstellungen bekommt ?
after upgrading my SuSE 9.2 (KDE 3.3) to KDE 3.4.1 I have some throubles
with the USB devices (USB stick & USB card reader). After the automount
I can't "navigate" into the directorys with konqueror. If I try to
switch to the /media/ directory the application (konqueror) "hang on"
and I should kill it. If I disconnect the USB device all works fine (but
I can't read/write from/to it!!!).
I had problems with OpenOffice.org 1.1.3: it doesn't work with KDE 3.4.1
and the OpenGL scrensavers don't work, too. I fix the problem with OOo
1.1.3 upgrading to OOo 1.1.4 and I deactivate the screensaver... someone
has any ideas for the USB problems?
If the problems persist I think I should downgrade my system to KDE 3.3
(if it is possible) because previous the upgrade my system worked very
well (I only can't connect MSN with the old kopete!)
Many thanks for your help.
