Since @Bob says there's no runtime configuration option for this and I didn't want to rebuild gdm3 from patched source, I took the following approach. First, move the real X server aside: sudo dpkg-divert --local --rename --add /usr/bin/Xorg Then drop a new shell script in place of /usr/bin/Xorg: #!/bin/sh test -x /usr/local/bin/Xorg && exec ...

Your problem is actually really easy to solve, although I can't blame you for not finding the solution - it isn't very clearly mentioned on the wiki. The problem is that even if you've installed NetworkManager, the daemon does not run by default.

Is it possible for you to look for the program's dependencies? I don't use OpenSUSE but on Xubuntu (Debian-based), I can look at what dependencies a program requires before I install that program. For that, I use apt-cache show program_name. In the following examples, I replaced program_name with xmahjongg, gnome-mahjongg and kmahjongg. The dependencies ...

Some people are missing the point, IF you want your icons on the Desktop AND wallpaper. Gnome has decided you can not. It used to work, but now it doesn't. Of course if you DON'T want icons, it doesn't matter, but if you DO want icons on your desktop AND wallpaper background it has been decided you can no longer have that. This is one of the reasons Gnome ...

I think the new Gnome search functionality still can use some work. It seems to do well suggesting frequently used programs, and separates the actual programs from settings. That said, some guesses for why those results come up for 'po'... took some thinking and Googling. Most were not obvious to me, either. Document Viewer: Postscript Rhythmbox: Podcast ...
