Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide 11.0

by caf4926
scroll down for all Versions


The purpose of this guide is to try and simplify what some have found to be a tricky process. There exist 'OneClick' options for this. Experienced users, at least as far as I am aware, do not use the 'OneClick' method. Keep in mind this was written for openSUSE 11.0 – You will be Working from Yast – Software – Software Management /& Repositories. [for 11.1 see next post below]


Some basic Repositories You Must Have:




Oss: Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/oss (http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.0/repo/oss/)
Non-oss: Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss (http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss/)
Update: Index of /update/11.0 (http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.0/)



These repositories should be in your repositories list from Installation.
If Not, add them.




Additional Repositories You will need:




Packman: Index of /pub/packman/suse/11.0 (http://packman.mirrors.skynet.be/pub/packman/suse/11.0/)
Videolan VLC: Index of /pub/vlc/SuSE/11.0/ (http://download.videolan.org/pub/vlc/SuSE/11.0)



N.B. You will install one package from VLC: libdvdcss – That's it!! Then REMOVE this repo. Install this Package FIRST.


You can avoid the VLC repo step by doing this in a terminal:

su -c "rpm -Uvh http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/1.2.9/rpm/libdvdcss2-1.2.9-1.i386.rpm"


Ultimately you need these 4 key repositories. Please observe carefully the Priority settings!


# | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh | Priority |
1 | packman | packman | Yes | Yes | 90 |
2 | Updates | Updates | Yes | Yes | 99 |
3 | Non-oss | Non-oss | Yes | Yes | 120 |
4 | Oss | Oss | Yes | Yes | 120 |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now we can move on to everything else:


But first you need to know something of the installation process. Using Yast – Software – Software Management you can filter by Repositories and so go to the repository you need to work from. In our case it will be the Packman Repository. Installed Packages have a tick in the check box, Packages with Blue text mean they are updates – Packages showing Red text mean they are roll-backs. In the case of a New Installation it is unlikely that there will be any Red packages. If you see blue packages in the Packman repo – do the following:- Looking at the menu buttons along the top of the GUI, select 'Package' and in the drop box select 'Update all in this list if Newer version Available'. Now accept. **In Gnome this option is not available, but there is a work around to get the QT GUI here: How To Get QT zypper GUI in GNOME YAST - openSUSE Forums (http://forums.opensuse.org/how-faq-read-only/unreviewed-how-faq/400090-how-get-qt-zypper-gui-gnome-yast.html#post1897909)

If you receive a dependency error, look to accept the 'Vendor Change' option to resolve it. For eg: Amarok from a default install of KDE will be a Blue package and will update, but you will need to confirm 'Vendor Change' to Packman. If you can't work out what to do, save the error to file by clicking the 'other' button in the error box. Then paste that info in to a question in the forum.


When Yast finishes it will ask if you want to install more? Select Yes.
Now filter by repository again and go back to Packman.


You now need to mark for installation the following – some of which may auto add to install by dependency as you work through the list.




libavcodec52
libdvdnav4
libdvdplay0
libdvdread4
libffmpeg0
ffmpeg
libquicktime0
libxine1
libxine1-codecs
libxvidcore4
smplayer
vlc
w32codec-all
xine-ui
xvidcore

OPTIONAL: for better media playback in your browser eg; apple, divx, wmv. Add these, both from Packman
gnome-mplayer
gecko-mediaplayer (several users (RedDwarf) package a newer version of this which may provide added compatibility.)


This list is by no means comprehensive and depending on your system and chosen desktop environment, you may need further adjustment. You may also want to use the search box and type realplayer to install this too. It should be noted that FLASHPLAYER is installed by default at install and should just work. If it does not - Post your question/problem in the forum.

UPDATED FOR 11.2



The purpose of this guide is to try and simplify what some have found to be a tricky process. There exist 'OneClick' options for this. Experienced users, at least as far as I am aware, do not use the 'OneClick' method. This is a re-write for openSUSE 11.2 – You will be Working from Yast – Software – Software Management /& Repositories.


Some basic Repositories You Must Have:

Update: Index of /update/11.2 (http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.2/)

These repositories should be in your repositories list from Installation.
If Not, add them.




Additional Repositories You will need:

N.B. You will install one package from VLC: libdvdcss –Install this Package FIRST. That's it!! Then REMOVE this repo.



You can avoid the VLC repo step by doing this in a terminal: Though it may install an older package than the repo and it's not _64.

To proceed with your multi-media installation do as follows:
You now need to mark for installation the following – some of which may auto add to install by dependency as you work through the list. (please remember some packages may not be available due to changes in packaging. We update this list regularly.)



A zypper option is:

OPTIONAL: for better media playback in your browser eg; apple, divx, wmv. Add these, both from Packman
gnome-mplayer
gecko-mediaplayer (Both available from Packman)
zypper in gnome-mplayer gecko-mediaplayer

Having added all these - Now go back to Software Management - Filter to Packman and do this: ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing (http://www.imagebam.com/image/6b67e954459645)
Gnome users: Either enable the QT UI for Yast to use the switcher or do this:

This list is by no means comprehensive and depending on your system and chosen desktop environment, you may need further adjustment. It should be noted that FLASHPLAYER is installed by default at install from a DVD and should just work. If it does not - Post your question/problem in the forum.

I have done several trial Gnome installs and using the package switcher is the easiest option, but you must accept the removal of 'transmission-common' as shown here:
Allow removal of transmission-common (http://www.imagebam.com/image/624c6b95832108)
This list is by no means comprehensive and depending on your system and chosen desktop environment, you may need further adjustment. It should be noted that FLASHPLAYER is installed by default post install, with updates and should just work. If it does not - Post your question/problem in the forum.

Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide FOR openSUSE_12.1



(NNTP users Please note this thread will change/be edited.)

Revised and Simplified manual Method This assumes you already have the default: Oss, NON-OSS and Update repositories.

Step 1:

Become super user in a terminal (su -). Learn how here (http://forums.opensuse.org/new-user-how-faq-read-only/unreviewed-how-faq/424498-become-su-terminal-howto.html#post2058194)
Or watch video here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Wv-IaDsitA)


Step 2 (Main Multimedia sources)

Add the necessary repositories by copying and pasting the following code into the su - terminal

Packman

zypper ar -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_12.1/ packman For DVD Playback
zypper ar -f http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/12.1/ libdvdcss Now we refresh them
zypper ref (a) to accept always and trust the signing key

Step 3 Adding the basic packages. Using the same su - terminal. Now carefully copy and paste the following:

FOR KDE USE THIS:


zypper in libdvdcss2 vlc libxine1-codecs k3b-codecs ffmpeg lame gstreamer-0_10-ffmpeg gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly-orig-addon w32codec-all MPlayer smplayer gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good libxine1 libdvdplay0 libdvdread4 libdvdnav4 xine-ui libmad0 ffmpeg sox libxvidcore4 xvidcore libavcodec52 libavdevice52 libvlccore4 libvlc5 lsb pullin-flash-player flash-player gstreamer-0_10-ffmpeg gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mp3 gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mpegdemux gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mpegmux gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good-extra k3b libquicktime0 gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad-orig-addon gecko-mediaplayer




FOR GNOME/XFCE/LXDE USE THIS:


zypper in libdvdcss2 vlc libxine1-codecs ffmpeg lame gstreamer-0_10-ffmpeg gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly-orig-addon totem-browser-plugin w32codec-all MPlayer smplayer gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good libxine1 libdvdplay0 libdvdread4 libdvdnav4 xine-ui libmad0 ffmpeg sox libxvidcore4 xvidcore libavcodec52 libavdevice52 libvlccore4 libvlc5 totem totem-plugin-upnp totem-plugins nautilus-totem lsb pullin-flash-player flash-player gstreamer-0_10-ffmpeg gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mp3 gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mpegdemux gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mpegmux gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good-extra libquicktime0 gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad-orig-addon


Step 4 When step 3 is complete: Now close the terminal and open: Yast > Software > Software Management

If you are working with a new install, this may automatically add a list of forced updates. Apply and run those first and then return to Software Manager
Now use the package switcher on Packman. KDE and Gnome interface look different:


KDE: Example of Packman switch in KDE (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/Switcher Pics/11.4_packman_switch.png)

Gnome: Example of Packman switch in Gnome (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/Switcher Pics/packman in gnome.png)

Video Example (KDE QT UI): Switching to Packman Video (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/packman-switch.mpeg)

If you encounter dependency errors: Eg: Errors (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/my_oneclick_install/10_errors.png) You need to accept changes that allow vendor switch to Packman If you can't work it out. Ask in the forum.


That is it!

====================================================================================================================

IMPORTANT NOTES:

This multi-media install now separates kde and gnome. This should ensure a complete multi-media experience with the least difficulty.

STEP 1: Add Packman and libdvdcss repositories


zypper ar -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_12.3/ packman


zypper ar -f http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/12.3/ libdvdcss

Now do

If you face choices. Look carefully for the option to let the package/s switch from openSUSE > packman
(In all my installs thus far it has been option 1)

When done. Close the terminal. And open Yast > Software Management and Apply the Package Switcher on Packman.
