A little severity issue to report regarding the XFCE desktop.
Every time I login to my desktop the brightness is usually too intense
then I adjust it by the XFCE power settings, hoping it holds the
setting, but then it reset at next reboot.
Wonder if there is a configuration file to set which cannot get rewrote
by XFCE settings in order to keep the last brightness level I chose.
Thanks and BR,

I have an HP M252 wifi printer, works mostly without
issues except with Firefox
lately, giving it a print job just gets the
"Printing Document" on the printer screen but
the job NEVER completes.
Heading says it all. I have Wine on the TW system and working

I've got a question about how is the rebuilding of external kernel modules invoked during a new kernel version installation?
The reason I'm asking is because when I install a modified kernel the Nvidia GPU driver modules are not built and installed like they are for regular kernels.
Example how it works with standard kernel:
I have kernel-default-5.10.3, kernel-default-5.10.4 is released, I run zypper dup, during the kernel installation the Nvidia modules are rebuilt against the new kernel and installed. I can reboot into the new kernel and everything works.
Example with my situation:
I take the kernel source kernel-source-5.10.4 from the standard Tumbleweed repos, make a few changes, build the rpms (make rpm-pkg), install them with Zypper but it doesn't install the Nvidia modules, I have to do this manually or else the GUI wouldn't work.
So what exactly triggers the module rebuild? What does the official kernel rpm has that my rpm built for the same source doesn't?
Ran the latest update this afternoon. Said there was a dependency
problem with Google Earth, so I said to skip it, or whatever the wording is.
Naturally, it did not work anymore. Sent icon to trash. Trying to install

I installed MATE on TW to see how it works. Apparently, there is no start menu
or similar: https://paste.opensuse.org/74508326
So how is one supposed to strt applications?
(Sorry for a stupid question, never tried MATE before....)
First of all, running kernel 5.10.3 has no this issue.
Second, I have laptop MSI GE62 6QF Apache Pro:
CPU: Intel i7 6700HQ
iGPU: Intel HD 530
(dGPU: NVidia 970M - but it was not used and I've uninstalled proprietary
drivers to ensure they aren't affecting this case.)
Internal monitor uses eDP, external - miniDP.
OS version: openSUSE Tumbleweed x86_64 20210103 (I'll try 04 later, just
updated, but as no new kernel, I doubt something will change).
The problem is when running with 5.10.4 and external monitor (mini
DisplayPort) is plugged, system hangs (in strange way) on X start. I can
reboot with MagicSysRQ + R.E.I.S.U.B. but other than that system is hanged and
screens are black (but on). I can't switch to tty. SDDM seems running, but no
visual, and system behaves very strange. When I try to blindly shutdown system
in sddm (using power button or Tab x 4 + enter) system isn't actually shutting
down, but after SysRQ+REISUB it does.
If miniDP external is unplugged, then X starts without a problem. And in KDE
Plasma plugging works fine. Haven't tried switching to tty and back yet.
But if system is powered off while external is plugged — it still hangs. And I
can't see any problems in system logs (`sudo journalctl -b -<n>`).
So the question is how to detect this problem and report it properly? I'll try
to dig logs more, but maybe there is some other way?
When I've got hang/timeout problem with i915 before, there was error file in
`/dev` to send it, but this time I don't see logs about that and I'm unsure
how to extract it (if it was) cause I can't access my system and it'll gone

I'm not sure, when this started, but at the moment kmail does not store an
individual aggregation or view per folder.
I am able to uncheck the default aggregation or view in the folder properties
and select different ones, but after clicking ok, nothing happens, and when
checking the settings again, they are back to their previous values.
These values not even match the defaults from the global kmail settings menue.
Changing the global values for aggregation and view works as expected, but
even then, the values shown in the folder properties dialog don't match the
