Title: openSUSE 11.4 Manuals

openSUSE-11.4: Evaluation by engineering manager
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger)
Partner organization:

We need for openSUSE 11.4 a review and update of the startup guidee and
of other manuals.
Let us add in the comments what we need to change in the documentation

#1: Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger) (2010-12-06 13:19:08)
The startup manual mentions KNetworkManager, we use now a new Plasma
Network applet.

+ #11: Martin Seidler (pistazienfresser) (2010-12-31 21:09:16) (reply to
+ #1)
+ I think there is a bit of a confusion about how this applet and the
+ corresponding software (package) is or should be called.
+ Compare e. g.:
+ 1)
+ 3AFactory
+ 3AFactory)
+ " NetworkManager-kde4 " in KDE:Distro:Factory/openSUSE_Factory
+ " KNetworkManager is a KDE 4 applet for controlling network connections
+ on systems that use the NetworkManager service."
+ 2)
+ (
+ " User Clients
+ KNetworkManager applet for KDE 4, Network Management Plasmoid under KDE
+ 4, KNetworkManager under KDE 3, nm-applet under GNOME, and
+ cnetworkmanager is your last life. These are responsible for [...]"
+ 3)
+ "5.4 Using KNetworkManager
+ The KDE front-end for NetworkManager is the KNetworkManager applet. If
+ the network has been set up for NetworkManager control, the applet
+ usually starts automatically with the desktop environment and is shown
+ as an icon in the system tray.[...]"

We use LibreOffice instead of

#3: Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger) (2010-12-06 13:25:28)
Remove any beagle documentation, we have now tracker for GNOME and
strigi for KDE.

#4: Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger) (2010-12-06 13:26:44) (reply to #3)
This includes kerry as well.

#5: Alex Bars (alexdbars) (2010-12-06 17:55:06)
I agree!
A month a new user,ask what is need to "control" openSUSE/Linux, and
the best manuals are sold by big corporatives, we need a "open" Manual,
to our "open" openSUSE Linux!

The manuals are already open ! :-) We moved our openSUSE manuals to the
BerliOS SVN some time ago.
Find the source code of our manuals here:
Hope you like it!

This would be nice! :-) We have already Russian, Hungarian, and Japanese.
You can get in contact with us at the opensuse-doc@xxxxxxxxxxxx
mailinglist for more details. :)

Great idea to go right through the user manual and offer a quick start
guide. One of my issues about the user manual is that the download link
sits at the bottom of the download page and is off screen. My
suggestion is that we put a Down-load Link Picture next to the version
selection for download, so people can see it - Many for the first time!
I would also suggest we put a hit counter behind the User Manual.
There is plenty of room on our standard software download page - please
stop hiding it screen at the bottom of the download page

is not an issue with the manuals itself. It's just the presentation of
how they appear. I think, this is out of scope for _this_ FATE request.
Therefor, I've created a separate bug report, see
Feel free to improve it. :-)
