Black gold – openSUSE 12.3 is out

Posted in opensuse by mschlander on 16/03/2013

On Wednesday openSUSE 12.3 was released, due to 12.2 having been delayed this cycle was shorter than usual, 6 months instead of 8. Last night I upgraded my ‘production’ PC and so far everything is running very smoothly for me.

You can read all about the release here and here and you can download openSUSE 12.3 here.


If, like me, you aren’t too fond of the dark theming. Switching to the vanilla KDE Air plasma desktop theme and Oxygen colour scheme is just a few clicks in Systemsettings.

By default Apper will only notify you about updates via the KDE notification system, if you want a full update applet install the package ‘apper-plasmoid’. The plasmoid is a bit immature and rough around the edges, so it was decided not to include it in the default installation.

As always, remember to join our community and help make 13.1 (to be released November 2013) even better than 12.3.

PS: Of course the release of openSUSE 12.3 means that was updated too.

    I agree – the new plasma theme looks nice at first glance, but I couldn’t live with it past a few days. Felt kinda ‘bleh’. Also switched to default Oxygen/Air.
