Thread: where's my /opt/gnome folder?

Hybrid View

    Default where's my /opt/gnome folder?

    i'm trying to add that free fluendo mp3 decoder, but i can't seem to find /opt/gnome/lib/gstreamer-0.10 folder where the decoder should reside.
    only /opt/kde there

    - Gnome has been moved away from /opt several releases ago.

    - I bet there are ready made packages for openSUSE making such "copy by hand"-actions unnecessary.

    The gstreamer package is called gst-fluendo-mp3 and it's available via YaST or zypper, you should not blindly just copy files around.

    Alternatively you can use the pullin-fluendo-mp3 package.

    Maybe but you're a good 'noob', you learn fast ;-)

    If you run into issues playing various non-free formats, take a look at http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_Formats/ - it has lots of information and easy to install software to play most of the common formats out there.

    thanks good noob is not all that bad i guess..
    and since you're so kind to me, i have yet another question, kinda off topic, but what the heck
    when i install packages with zypper, and later i decide to remove them, does it remove all the dependencies as well?
