Thread: Apt-get

    Default Apt-get

    Hi,

    I've just installed OpenSUSE. I've never used it before. I typically use apt-get to install applications when using Ubuntu; so I'd like to use it with OpenSUSE.

    I've read some documentation saying that I need to go to YaST -> Software and search for "apt" or "synaptic." However, both of these searches yield no results. Additionally, using the Software Manager to search for these yields no results.

    What can I do?

    Thank you for your help


    P.S. When I search for something in OpenSUSE and there are 0 results, I get HTML bold tags around the search criteria where it says there are no results (as in, I can actually see the code for the bold tag).

    Hi
    Use the command zypper instead? The other option is to alias the
    apt-get command to zypper.

    apt has been built by some users on the openSUSE build service, but
    doesn't look like it's done for 11.2

    Thank you for your response

    I'll give zypper a try





    New problem:

    Buttons in Eclipse do not work... Meaning exactly that... when I click on a button (any button) in Eclipse IDE, nothing happens. The button gains focus, but it would appear no functionality is executed.

    Even if you install apt, you could not use SUSE repositories with it. You only would be able to add repositories from apt rpm -based distributions, such as PCLinuxOS, Alt Linux, Fedora (Fedora in fact also has SUSE-compatible yum system, so apt is not needed for adding a Fedora repo).

    this might be because I use KDE, so please correct me if I am wrong, but the screenshot you posted to me shows your searching in the wrong area.

    Open Yast Control Center
    Select Software management and search there

    To me it seems like your searching for apt in the Yast control center and not in the Software management.

    But as I said I only use KDE but would Gnome be so different ?

    imo the 'correct' answer is: do not use apt with openSUSE, instead use
    YaST or Zypper.

    Maybe, but the original poster wrote: "P.S. When I search for something in OpenSUSE and there are 0 results, I get HTML bold tags around the search criteria where it says there are no results (as in, I can actually see the code for the bold tag)."

    because he is not searching in the software section... as the screenshot shows
