The point he is making is that all the people on this list are volunteers
who give their time and expertise freely and generously. If you have a
question about encryption, it takes much the same effort to type 'opensuse
linux encryption' into the search bar of your web browser as it does to post
your question here. And you'll probably get much more information. The best
way to use the resources of this list is _after_ you've read the man pages,
done a google search, and even tried a bit of experimenting with commands or
config files. And, as Anton says, you'll learn much faster by getting your
hands dirty under the bonnet/hood of your own machine.
Yeah sure, I just wanted something ***ready***, because of that,
probably thought for a possibility and yes installed openSUSE keeping
in mind that openSUSE from GUI would make me do everything and as it
is Linux too, I thought earlier that openSUSE is the best place, but
one thing I forgot that here too are required self experiments - it is
not like that everything in GUI is ready to be used - perhaps bad part
But I agree that Google search and reading documentation could do that.
Enjoy your time here, and have fun ....

I too use KDE. But when I tried doing that, it said for something
related with certificates..., I don't know why....? I had installed
'encfs' but didn't know how to use. I would Google though.
BTW, as others have mentioned, it's your responsibility to learn about
things and not just come here with questions that you can answer on your own
with a bit of effort.
I would do that now.
The best way to learn is to read and try.
I am completely agreeing with you but with me is the time factor
(since I am in other job) and probably this is the reason I guess, I
am facing problems in Linux, but still, I would try to manage on
You can even set up test users or systems where you can experiment all you want.
Nice suggestion. I would try to.
We like to help people, but it's nice to see them put some effort into it.
Ah that's really great. And I used to thought that, it is true only
for technical people, but now I know that it is even true for

I thank to all of you for this.
You are now asking RTFM questions.
This list should be your _last_ resource *AFTER* you have read the
relevant manual pages, googled and read the HOW-TO and commentaries and,
Yes, perhaps I missed that and the reason is that I really get less
time (might be I have to manage the time, anyway).
If you use this list as first resource without taking any initiative two
things will happen.
1. You won't learn for yourself.
2. People will become fed up with you asking questions that
a little bit of initiative on your part (RTFM/google) could
Yes that is correct, but I really forgot that it is to be done by self.

It is not that I don't want to do my own research, but I should get
the time for that too (yes it is my headache). But I would try to
manage that (***time***).
At last, I would just want to say the following which is true for me:
"I used to think (earlier, before this post) that Linux is just a
great type of Windows (yes, I am Windows migrant). And yes it ready to
use with all GUIs (like openSUSE) and here you get everything working
without doing your own research and though Linux is understood to be
used better as command line but now a days GUI options are so great
that everything - each and every thing you can do using GUI. So, if
you are in some other job which is not at all related with computers,
you can install the openSUSE, and use it.
Now I think (after this post): Yes Linux is very good but one needs
one's own efforts to work and use it easily. If you are from other
job, try to spend the time and learn on the Linux box. It needs
initiatives and then you can use it very easily."
Yeah, I may be wrong in thinking but I have liked openSUSE - best KDE
with best GUI but perhaps I would require time to go through the
