[opensuse-gnome] User feedback concerning openSUSE 13.2 with GNOME
Greetings!

I've been monitoring Google+ and other social networks with an eye out
for GNOME 3.14 complaints related to 13.2. Frankly, there are very very
few.
+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=
Most common complaint (which seems to affect KDE as well, and maybe
worse) is concerning font rendering. I don't know what the problem is
since so far as I know I'm not experiencing the problem.

The Main Menu Editor (alacarte) once again does not work. I ran it
terminal and saw no unusual errors and ran it with gnomesu to see if
that changed the behavior.

Online Accounts are very flakey to the point where on some systems the
feature is fully broken. I've seen some reports floating around on the
mailing list so I'll assume you are aware of the problem.

People (myaelf included) are complaining about being unable to theme
GDM. I assume this is due to an upstream change.

I've observed some sub-optimal behavior with the new GNOME Sofware
Center. First time it tried to update the system, it gave message of
failure once the graphical environment was back up. With some software,
it will take a very long time to show the details for it. This behavior
seems to be entirely random.

User Management in the GNOME Settings panel is still disfunctional.
Ability to take picture with webcam to set as user picture still does
not work.

GNOME loving users are confused and put-off by the Qt YaST interface in
GNOME by default. [As a recommendation, the default behavior for
searching in the Qt interface is to not search until Enter is pressed
whereas the Gtk+ interface searches with each key. Revert the behavior
to the Qt style one. The searching by each key press slows the interface
and seems to cause instability.]

Overall, most people are thrilled with the stability and refinement.
Good job.
