openSUSE to use on the desktop.
To all new users,
I will be introducing openSUSE today by referring to some specific cases for it’s use. Let's take a look at what it’s like to work with openSUSE.
What is openSUSE? I like to think that openSUSE is like Windows in a way. We can do many of the same things with it, anyway, that we can with Windows.
Let’s get started, and hopefully you’ll also be persuaded to start using openSUSE starting today.
It has been 10 years since I first started using openSUSE myself, and I’ve been very pleased with the results.
We have a lot work to do:
LibreOffice is the basic software package. We can create documents like Microsoft Office, and of course we can also create presentations and drawings.
We use Skrooge for this. I have to say, though, that finances aren’t my strong point...
No worries. Both Google Chrome and Firefox will work with it.
Do you know Kdenlive? We can edit videos shot with smartphones and publish them on YouTube with this tool. If you use Audacity to cut noise, the sound will also be much clearer.
Gimp is a very powerful software for this purpose. We can draw a picture with a pen tablet, or you can edit a raw image in combination with darktable. What a man!!
Inkscape is a drawing tool. We can draw vector images like Adobe Illustrator. Anyone can use it.
We use Netbeans for an integrated development environment. For this, I will introduce the environment development WordPress plugin.
Where do we attain the software?
We set up software repositories and download the software you’re planning to use from the Internet.
How do I set up my PC screen?
We’ll want to customize the desktop. You may be wondering what the desktop environment is. openSUSE includes various desktop environments including KDE Plasma.
Can I mobilize this with a USB flash drive?
Unfortunately, openSUSE isn’t compatible with USB, but we can utilize Gecko Linux for this purpose.
