There is no much chance to wreck the system with current version of
Apper, so it would be interesting to know how that happened and what
frontend was involved.

the 'current' version of apper that a new user would install is the
one in the most current released version of openSUSE..

and i just now see the second post from a person naming apper as the
update source which 'wrecked' his day:

see
alt.os.linux.suse
"LXDE Menu lost most entries"

This one:

User doesn't cooperate in your attempts to find a reason why it
happened. I'll just watch that.

I'll see what comes out of another thread.
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/alt.os.linux.suse/bODH4JSesoY

As you can see I access it via nntp.
Also, if you see some relevant post with gmail.com as email address,
tell me, as I filter out all @gmail.com (old habit on
alt.os.linux.suse ).


anyone here who wishes can step in the breach, and i will step out.

No way. More eyes see better, so no step out.

but be advised that telling the user he shot himself in the foot by
not being born knowing how to deal with the end-to-end package
management system including "apper" . . .

:)

Don't worry.

ps: i will advise you (Rajko) as i see similar show up...do you want
the notification here or in private mail? and, you plan to help them
restore their system, as well as collect information, right?

I asked for private emails, but thread on opensuse@xxxxxxxxxxxx as
Carlos said could be better option, or even better thread in Forums as
it is easier to see number of posts. That way collection of questions
and links to them will be public and anyone interested can see size
of a problem.

I'll leave which venue to use, to you and Carlos decision.
