Does anyone know where you post a bug on SDDM? The only option i've found is log it against "Other" in Bugzilla.
Since the last update (see below) I can't log in via the "Others" option where you enter the user-id and password.
It doesn't offer you the option to enter a password, just a User and a <Log In> button

I'm having this weird behavior that some windows always open on the secondary screen of my two-screen setup.
One example is Dolphin, which insists on opening on my left screen even if the right screen is the primary one *and* the cursor is on the right screen when I open it. The first thing I do is to drag it to the right screen, but the next time I open it, it is on the left screen again.
This has been going on for months, but lately I read that the recent KDE release (5.23) would fix this behavior.
Unfortunately, it made things worse!! Now I have my Application Dashboard (KDE full screen launcher) opening on the left screen too! Even if the "button" to open it is on the right screen!
The only moderately unusual thing I have in my setup is that the left screen has a lower resolution with respect to the right screen. Left is 1680x1050 while right is 1920x1080.
How can I fix this behavior? Anybody else in the same boat?
Thank you in advance

I already have Oracle jdk-17 installed, so I don't need a back-level version. When I try
to install Ant, zypper insists on installing jdk-11 stuff plus other odds and ends.
Using --no-recommends doesn't help.
I suppose I can let it add all this cruft, then remove it all afterward, but why isn't
there a way to do this? some other way of overriding zypper's insistence on a package
that is not needed or desired.

I would need to take a picture of the screen also when I hover the mouse
onto an application menu (focusing), but so far I haven't been able to
do it due the fact that whenever hovering the mouse on some other points
of the screen, the screenshot shortcuts disables and screenshot is not

When installing OpenSUSE-15.3 from a USB disk on an MBR disk, the
bootloader step of the installer fails. This results in an unbootable
disk and it is necessary to do grub-install with the option
--target=i386-pc later. Unlike OpenSUSE-15.3, this worked well in
Also, even if online repositories are disabled, in final steps of the
installation, zypper tries to update the list of packages from online
repositories, resulting in error messages and some delay if there is
no internet connection.

Is it something I should worry about?
I'm on TW, the root filesystem is btrfs, the home partition ext4. The
system has 5 6TB disks, in a raid6 array.
Leap 15.3 has 4 update repositories instead of 2 like Leap 15.2 and previous versions:
- repo-backports-update (new as of 15.3)
- repo-sle-update (new as of 15.3)
I roughly understand the purpose of the above repos (see e.g.
But I'd like to know more about the policies/rules which apply to these repos.
Questions that come to mind:
- Is the repository really required to get security fixes?
- Does the repository contain explicit security fixes?
(I.e. are only security fixes applied to existing versions
or will new versions from upstream be made available?)
- Are version numbers (mostly/somewhat/...) kept stable?
- Does the repository provide patches for zypper or
complete RPMs only?
Is there any document/description that answers these types of questions?
I guess for *repo-backports-update* the policy is more or less that you ship what you
(can) get from upstream.
*repo-sle-update* and *repo-update* seem to contain security fixes and patch
definitions (just looked briefly).
How about *repo-backports-update*?
Previously (e.g. with 15.2) the policy seemed to result in rather stable version
numbers, i.e. few updates where minor (or even major) version numbers changed.
This seems to be different for 15.3, particularly when looking at backports-update.
But that's all guesswork and I couldn't find anything documentation for that.
On example package that I stumbled across is

leap153:~ # zypper se -s ruby2.5-rubygem-i18n
S | Name | Version | Arch | Repository
| ruby2.5-rubygem-i18n | 0.9.1-1.21 | x86_64 | repo-oss
| ruby2.5-rubygem-i18n-0_6 | 0.6.11-bp153.1.16 | x86_64 | repo-oss
| ruby2.5-rubygem-i18n-1.1 | 1.1.1-bp153.1.16 | x86_64 | repo-oss
| ruby2.5-rubygem-i18n-1.8 | 1.8.10-bp153.2.1 | x86_64 | repo-backports-update
--- snip ---
My current understanding is that I can simply chose from any of the above versions,
but none was released because of security reasons.
And if so, would there be security updates for e.g. ruby2.5-rubygem-i18n-0_6 or
ruby2.5-rubygem-i18n-1.1? And where would they be published?
Explanations/insights/hints are much appreciated.

Does anyone have any issues using Firefox? I'm not sure when this happened as i haven't used it for a while.
I can no longer right click for a menu, paste anything into the address field, restore the menus.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it makes no difference.
