Thread: Does Bluefish install on OpenSUSE 11.1?

    Question Does Bluefish install on OpenSUSE 11.1?

    Hi
    This is my first time using OpenSUSE (a whole 2 days so far). I have tried Ubuntu and Fedora 8 previously during the last few weeks but both have proved to be unsatisfactory for different reasons although Fedora 8 would have been fine if I could have acquired codecs for wmv and mp3.

    I have installed OpenSUSE 11.1 and so far I am delighted by how easy it is even for a newbie like me.

    The first snag: No problem getting mp3 player, movie player, Scribus, Gimp, etc installed and functioning via the package manager, BUT I can't get Bluefish Code Editor onto my machine (an aging Toshiba lappy). Package manager doesn't find it.

    I need a good code editor to work on simple xhtml, css, php pages. I rarely do anything complex. I used Bluefish on both Fedora and Ubuntu without problems.

    Can anyone assist with advice regarding a good, compatible, out of the box, code editor (preferably with code highlighting, indenting and hints) to suit my needs?

    Else, how to install Bluefish?

    I can't understand how to use Vi/ViIM as yet and Emacs seems too much of a learning curve whilst I am learning to use a new OS plus trying to learn a few command lines in Konsole, plus actually achieve something.

    Thank you in anticipation of assistance.

    A lot of editors are out there. A lot of people will response too to this thread with different ideas. I myself web developer.
    Bluefish OR Quanta.
    Both are very good editors with good features.

    I personally use Quanta.
    You can install both from Yast -> Software management.
    Search for bluefish or quanta and install it from there.

    I used Quanta for a few years. Just recently I switched to Gnome and didn't want any contamination from KDE while I test Gnome for 6 months or so -- so I'm using Bluefish now and it's great. Use the educational repo as suggested by caf4926.

    Thank you to one and all.

    I did manage to get a base model Quanta to install, apparently I need some other "libraries" (whatever) to get full functionality. But it's a great start.

    I couldn't add any repositories, Yast kept asking for a name (which I didn't have) and also didn't like the address format, I must've been doing something wrong, don't forget that I'm an absolute newbie.

    All the same it's good to be on the road to freedom, even though I still have WinXP on my desktop. I have to reinstall XP very soon, if I can get openSUSE running well on the lappy I might install SUSE on the desktop too (sick to death of errors and re-installs).

    I'll probably be back here very soon when it comes time to to install XAMPP for Linux in a few days.

    When you select add repository, you can select community repositories.
    Alternatively if it is a repository from outside the OpenSuse
    community, you want to have a browser open to the repository site and
    collect the URL and name from the browser using copy (control-c) and
    paste (control-v).

    OK Thanks
    I gave the new repository a name and now have the Education repo.

    Now I have bluefish AND Quanta. Quanta looks pretty good.

    I'll get some work done and then back to installing XAMPP, I'll possibly be back here then.

    Thanks for all the help.

    WHY XAMPP?

    You can install LAMP from Yast-software management-patterns
    This is the easy way to install LAMP stack.
