SHould say "...under any version of openSUSE..."

I want to add that KDE has an easy method of toggling desktop effects 
and disabling them before opening LiveCode eliminates the problem of 
video not displaying in a player object. Interestingly, toggling them 
while LiveCode is running has no effect, either way. Just as 
interesting, while it affects the compositing issue with the player, it 
has no visible effect on the backdrop on my system.
