    The command-line tool in Suse is called "zypper." Use man zypper for more info. While there are apt-get tools for Suse, they aren't installed by default. Apt-get is primarily used on Debian-based systems.

    You can also install with Yast in a text terminal, same as you can in a GUI. Su to root, enter "yast," then select Software->Software Management.
