    openSUSE desktop install help

    Thanks Wizard. I think while I'm researching it, I'll get "Chkrootkit" and "Rkhunter" to have on hand. Going to be learning my new OS, so I shouldn't be much more than my "common sense?" I'm pretty sure I have enough of that to keep me out of trouble.

    My next concern is Internet Security. I see some people use it and some don't. Is it only needed if you are running ms or google products? Or is it for anyone who enters any personal info on line? Or should EVERYone be using it? Comodo seems to be popular. Charlie

    Thanks, Wizard. Not sure what that all means, but I'll figure it out. This it the kind of stuff I miss from early Windows. Going to be fun. Hold on to your hat and don't get blown away. Charlie.

    Been fooling in the terminal. Playing with the resolution. Started at 0.95x0.95 and went all the way down to 0.6x0.6 Each step down put more of the screen in view, but still couldn't see it all, and print just got too big. Set it back to 1x1. Still searching.
