comment OpenSuse custom keyboard shortcuts not working
@BlackTigerX just out of curiousity... try running xev in a terminal then press the windows key. you should see SUPER_ in the output. Just making sure your key is actually working.

comment OpenSuse custom keyboard shortcuts not working
@BlackTigerX questions like this are most likely very Destkop Environment/Window Manager specific, so adding tag Gnome.

comment Which shell should I use - tcsh vs bash?
I find it somewhat amusing that everyone is suggesting zsh. At the same time it's not amusing because it doesn't really answer the ops question. which is why I made my zsh response a comment not an answer. Straight up though, unless you are having problems learning how to shell script tcsh, go with what you know. If you have problems using tcsh post your problem on here. Don't switch just 'cause. There are more bash posts because it's installed by default in more places, that doesn't make it better.

comment Is is possible to use KDE as well as Gnome on a machine?
Just as a note, you'll still have to choose between gdm, kdm, or at your discretion another login manager, but that doesn't affect which DE/WM you login to.

comment How to Fix Choppy Video Playback in Ubuntu?
curious why do you have an xorg.conf? most of the time these days xorg auto detects everything? I speculate that even if you need one for something things you could leave a lot of stuff out like the kbd and mouse sections.

This is a known issue with the linux kernel... I believe I read that recently a patch was committed to fix it. Looking for a reference to that...

comment What files in /var need to have specific owners?
@David I wasn't suggesting a reinstall... just that you can get a system running it a chroot way faster than setting up a VM.
