    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
    • Or watch video here


    Step 2
    (Main Multimedia sources)
    • Add the necessary repositories by copying and pasting the following code into the su - terminal

    Packman
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_12.1/ packman
    For DVD Playback
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/12.1/ libdvdcss
    Now we refresh them
    Code:
    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:
    Code:
       
    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:
    Code:
       
    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

    Gnome: Example of Packman switch in Gnome

    Video Example (KDE QT UI): Switching to Packman Video

    If you encounter dependency errors: Eg: Errors 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:
    1. This multi-media install now separates kde and gnome. This should ensure a complete multi-media experience with the least difficulty.
    2. A good step by step multimedia check is available HERE
    3. Please do not use the VideoLan repository!
    4. OneClick options will be available here: Restricted formats - openSUSE Community Wiki

      Thanks James
      I have used this now on over 10 installations and found it doesn't usually throw too much confusion at the user.
