OpenSUSE 12.2 install took less that 45 minutes on a netbook, with a USB DVD player.
Install DockyI 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 ThemeGnome3 Adwaita title bars are way two thick. Sonar puts a smaller/darker title bar.
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 ServerTakes 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 GeanyGreat all-purpose code editor with symbol browser
MySQL WorkbenchTo 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 http://www.whitemiceconsulting.com/2012/11/screen-capture-in-gnome3.htmlfor more details.
