I haven’t posted here in a long time, I have been a great fan of OpenSUSE eversince I changed from Ubuntu,Linux Mint, and Debian. With my Lenovo T410S, there were some unresolved issues including graphics, wireless card and other hardware incompatibilities on OpenSUSE 13.2.

With OpenSUSE 13.1, I have not have any issues other than the fact that I installed it wrong a few times. Today, I fell from my bike and destroyed my Leonovo T410S, the 1.5" SSD was the only surviving component. My supervisor will be purchasing me a Lenovo T420, I appreciate it greatly.

The Lenovo T420 will be carrying a 128GB 2.5" SSD, which I can choose to clone the 1.5"SSD into, but I wish to switch back to OpenSUSE 13.1 with this opportunity. Also, I am expecting to run into dual-graphics card incompatibilities issues. It has a 1GB Nividia and intel integrated HD

I haven’t been too successful finding resources on how I’d activate evergreen, is there a compiled step-by-step instructions on activating evergreen for OpenSUSE 13.1?

Also, I am contemplating Tumbleweed edition. This will be my research/work laptop, I need this to be reliable as well as up to date.

In case I make additional inputs here for troubleshoots,
The specs should be:
Processor Intel Core i5-2540M Processor (2.60GHz, 3MB L3)
Display type 14.0 HD+ (1600 x 900) LED Backlit Anti-Glare Display, Mobile Broadband Ready
System graphics NVIDIA NVS 4200M Graphics with Optimus Technology, 1GB DDR3 Memory
Total memory 8 GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz SODIMM Memory (2 DIMM)
128 Samsung SSD

Thank you for your time.

I’m new to opensuse, but have been using Ubuntu for a while. I have my kids play minecraft on linux since the jar files often bring in malware, and having Oracle Java is important to us since we have found better results for us with Oracle Java than openjdk.

First I went into the software manager and deleted everything openjdk.
Then I followed the instructions at https://sites.google.com/site/easyli…a-for-opensuse but for the current 8u60
Then I installed MultiMC as the launcher for minecraft and tried to launch minecraft
The error I got was something about a field or path not existing
So I deleted the java I had just installed, then reinstalled using the instructions at the Oracle site
Still same error
java -version returned 1.5.0, not 1.8.0-60 or whatever 8u60 is.
So I found the usr/bin/java and deleted it after I found that I couldn’t edit it.

That is as far as I’ve gotten. I suspect that if I can make a new usr/bin/java and point it at the right target, then I can get java to work. The problem is that I don’t know how to do it. Would anyone please tell me how to make it so that it points to the right java?

BTW, I know just enough terminalese to be dangerous to my computers, so please keep that in mind. 🙂

HI All,


I am having trouble with the keyboard on opensuse 13.2.
I am using a lenovo G 505 computer.
The trouble shows up in the various browers I am using and
in the terminal program where the characters jump from
terminal to the run command window at random.
The browser, opera 31, is going crazy as I type these
lines into the message.
I am tempted to dump this build and go back to 13.1
so as to determine whether the problem is the software
the computer’s hardware itself.
I did go in a slow down the keyboard response time and
repeat delay.
i just typed a few lines in libre office writer and the results
were less erratic but far from perfect.
So, i don’t know what to make of this issue !!!
