hi,

i flashed my bios to be able to use entirely my keyboard and enter the bios, and the n i saw that 1st boot device was floppy disk ! which is due to an old bios reset restore to default that i had forgotten.
I changed this : 1st boot device is now dvd player and then hdd. It should be ok for hardware.
Software realm ; I blacklisted floppy module also, shall i rebuild grub ?

thanks ;)

there's no update-grub or the other update command in openSUSE, they're Debian specific and I don't know why you should have to. is everything working correctly now?

also you could be using uefi or grub2

hi,

the command line in order to regenerate grub if needed is as follows, but it seems it's not needed so far as everything seems back to normal, thanks ;)

Code: Select all
# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg


or you can use another way which is easier to remember :
Code: Select all
 #  update-bootloader --refresh

Not sure why this would be considered the same issue.
- Did this show properly earlier before the bios update?
- Did it work earlier in 13.1 and 11.4 or in 12.3 and 11.x

This would be the pidgin-knotifications plugin? if so in the options are you using libnotify or kdialog?

I don't use Pidgin so I'm just guessing, if you look at the bottom of this page http://code.google.com/p/pidgin-knotifications/ (the configuration screen) and if you're using pidgin-knotifications you'll see that Pidgin can use 2 different types of notifications maybe switching will fix your issue

i don't understand the link beetween pidgin and kde notification pannel, i did not use this plugin before.
If i add it and allow it both options (kdialog being default, libnotify being the other option) still give me the same behaviour, each time i click the contact list i have the kde pannel that's opened.

I qualified my previous response with "if you're using pidgen-knotifications"

You should test using an alternative de to determine if it's a KDE issue else it's a Pidgen or distro one

As this is no longer a Dolphin issue you should start a new thread in a more appropriate forum, maybe Pidgen's

hello ;)

now we can say it's certainly not linked with dolphin, i'd like to understand where this is coming from though, i guess that too many events are catched. Is this KDE or pidgin related ? If KDE i could open another thread nearby ;)
Thanks ;)

As this involves a Plasma applet being triggered to open, I would suggest opening a topic in the Plasma forum, so we can investigate that issue more closely. Pidgin shouldn't be able to trigger it to open.
