Post Installation Process, OpenSUSE 12.2

OpenSUSE 12.2 install took less that 45 minutes on a netbook, with a USB DVD player.

Install Docky

I don't like my menus hidden. I install Docky, and drag it over to the left, over where the gnome3 menu would be if I could make it stay.

Install Sonar Theme

Gnome3 Adwaita title bars are way two thick. Sonar puts a smaller/darker title bar.

Install Chromium

Here's what I did last time:

I was going to make a separate post about setting up my webdev environment, but openSUSE patterns make it too easy.


Install  Pattern - Web and Lamp Server

Takes care of installing common php/mysql stuff, more.
Go to yast/http server to configure/start
It seems like it used to setup sftp/ssh for me, but struggling this time. I'm just using ftp.

Install Geany

Great all-purpose code editor with symbol browser

MySQL Workbench

To manage mysql databases. phpMyAdmin? No thank you.


Change the Nautilus location bar to show location instead of buttons:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences always-use-location-entry true

Note: Screenshot behavior has changed. It downloads immediately instead of opening or putting into clipboard, but has a lot of options. SEE more details.
