Kmail Message List Tabs

Kmail has been my email application for almost 20 years. Even before I started using openSUSE I have been happily using this email application. I find it to be the most feature rich of all the email management applications and far better than any web client I have ever used. I can shape the layout … Continue reading Kmail Message List Tabs

Dell Latitude D630 System Check and Update

I have loved the openSUSE project for quite some time and I love how it keeps my old systems relevant and working beautifully. I like to test whether or not this continues to hold true on older machines, especially those that have meant a lot to me over the years. Mothballed my D630 when I … Continue reading Dell Latitude D630 System Check and Tumbleweed Update

Wayland Display Server on openSUSE Tumbleweed in 2021

Wayland on openSUSE Title

I became aware of the Wayland Display Server project in 2012 when I was playing with using DisplayLink on openSUSE. I was told that when Wayland is released, it would fix my woes. Nine years later, it was time to give Wayland an honest go with openSUSE again. The impetus behind it was curiosity since … Continue reading Wayland Display Server on openSUSE Tumbleweed in 2021

KDE Plasma 5.21 on openSUSE Tumbleweed | Better Then Ever

Periodically, I like to gush over my operating system and desktop.

Fedora 33 | Review from an openSUSE User

Keeping inline with my general theme of being late to the party, I have finally given Fedora 33 a spin. I have previously reviewed Fedora 31 and really enjoyed it very much.

I am happy to say that I now have published my openSUSE Breeze Dark Plasma Style for the world to use.

openSUSE Breeze Dark Plasma Color Scheme Published

About two years ago, I started using Kdenlive to do video editing. The dark theme I had been using, a modified version of the "openSUSE dark alternate" theme, was not getting along with Kdenlive and I had to use the "Breeze Dark" theme to be able to properly distinguish the widgets and such on the … Continue reading openSUSE Breeze Dark Plasma Color Scheme Published

I was given an incredible gift by my former employer as a parting gift, an HP EliteBook 840 G7. I didn't unpack it right away as I wasn't sure how I was going to integrate it into my mess of computer equipment. I have been very happy with my Dell Latitude E6440 and decided my … Continue reading HP EliteBook 840 G7 running openSUSE Tumbleweed
