Hi :)
Just don't play Wesnoth or Glest (or Neverball) as you will find time vanishes if you do.  

Welcome in! :)
Regards from 
Tom :)

Hi all,

thank you all for your assistance. I've learned a lot about work-flow 
under Linux and find it rather different from what I'm used to do under 

I need Linux mainly for testing ODF interoperability problems. Such is 
possible now. If I get further problems, I know you will help me :)

Kind regards

Hi Regina

You've received some very good advice here, I'll just add my little bit.
If you are using KDE with openSuSE, then you can also use a feature of
KDE built in, called "Desktop Folders", similiar to Stardock's "Fences",
and dare I say it here, Windows 8's new Metro/Modern desktop (Hmmm! a
little humorous dig at MS, wonder where they got their Win8 layout
from!!!!!). Basically it is where one can group similiar apps /
workspace icons and so forth, so for instance you can group all of the
LO icons in one fence, utilities in another fence and so on and so
forth. But unlike a traditional folder on a desktop, these display their
contents, sort of in an expanded folder, making the icons visible, but
keeping order. And this is available with KDE on any distro, whether
native to that distro or as an add-on such as Debian based distro's.

A quick history lesson on the two most common front end / GUI shells
offered in Linux distro's, KDE (K Desktop Environment) and GNOME (GNU
Network Object Model Environment as it was initially known as). KDE very
popular due to similarity in layout and function to MS Windows, and
GNOME popular with Apple O/S type users for function and layout. There
are of course many other desktops as well.

Very useful, hope you find it's of use to you. As Tom iterated in
another post, nice to offer you back something for all your help with LO
to us.

Hi :)
i knew someone would have a good answer for 2.  1 only changed in the
latest release, i think, and i only heard about that on this list
otherwise i'm not sure any of us would have known.  Well, a couple of
people obviously.  Good to see another person with an excellent name
had the answer for 2
Regards from
Tom too :)

I want to get an icon on the desktop, which launches the start center,
not a specific module. How do I get that?

Kind regards

Not sure  about what you mean by the "start center". In the lower
left corner
of the screen (if you're using KDE) is a startup icon. You can start any
installed program from there. LO will be under "Office > Word
Processors". OR
you can do like many of use and either put the icon on the desktop or
in the
bottom panel.
