    Lightbulb Multimedia in One Click

    Multimedia the Easy Way

    If you want to avoid the detailed and more complicated Multimedia Guide, you can choose to install all the basics by following this guide.


    1. Choose your openSUSE version here: openSUSE Versions

    Once you are at your version page, click the KDE or GNOME .ymp link to begin the process. If you use XFCE, the Gnome installer is for you. LXDE users will have to determine which to use based on their application base. Or follow the detailed guide linked above.
    I have created a slideshow of the process in OpenOffice that you can download here: OneClick Presentaton

    or you can watch it online at: Picasa Web Albums - carl fletcher - OneClick Mult...

    You can also download the original photos in an archive: OneClick Photo Archive

    This guide will be locked. NNTP users, please note, this thread will be updated regularly as work in progress.

    Carl,
    May I suggest eliminating slide 11? Then starting from slide 12 showing the new ones which of the solver options to pick. I notice that you have the vendor change to Packman checked in slide 12, perhaps showing the newbies what to select for their 1st run would be better. If it's all change vendor then it may just be easier to write in "check change vendor" in all the solver conflicts in No. 12.
    Aside from that I wish I'd had this when I started

    I'll see. The problem is if I just do ("check change vendor" in all the solver conflicts in No. 12.) and skip the slide 11, to you that's easy to figure, but believe me, some folks will be completely bemused by it. That's why I added the some assist in slide 11 with a route to skip the questions.

    You're right apparently I've lost touch with my inner noob.
    Remembering my 1st foray I'd been one of those "bemused." So the way it is is probably best.

    Indeed I'm afraid that's my problem also. I'm trapped as an average user, unable to move up to the next level, and yet also unable to relate any more to my 'inner noob'.

    I greatly appreciate all the fabulous contributions that caf4926 has provided in this multimedia and other areas.

    Hi all,
    Just to say thanks for this. May I request a few more words on 32 vs 64 bit. There is a note about 32 bit systems prompting a question but it might help if there were some words about whether it matters etc. Hope my point is clear.

    Sorry, but not clear really.
    I didn't mention 32 v 64
    And what do you mean 'whether it matters' - Whether what matters?
