Abandoned OpenSuSE Tumbleweed for Leap 15.6 beta: much better

In a previous post, I said how I made a huge mistake by “upgrading” to a fresh installation of OpenSuSE Tumbleweed, which came with KDE 6 and Wayland. This broke the KDE window tiling, and every interaction I had with KDE reminded me of what a huge mistake I had made. I’ve re-installed a fresh OS install from Leap 15.6 beta, and everything is good, back to the way it was before.

Firefox did bark at me that my profile was newer than previous; I had to start it with firefox --allow-downgrade

Also, I lost all my Firefox multi-account containers I had set. Thankfully, I had a previous containers.json file lying around.

But yes, now, everything is working excellently. Well, I haven’t tried Factorio or YouTube videos yet: but the important stuff is working.

Previously, I’d moved off Leap to Tumbleweed because tesseract-ocr was too old. It looks like in Leap 15.6 beta that it is a pretty new version.
