Thread: OpenSUSE should add this! Package for commands...

  1. #1

    Default OpenSUSE should add this! Package for commands...

    PackageKit, the package management framework, has also received some intriguing enhancements in Fedora 12. A new customization for the bash shell will detect when the user attempts to run a command from a package that is not installed and will offer to automatically install the package. This is not fully integrated yet, but users who want to test it can install the Packagekit-command-not-found package.
    This is very cool and I'd assume that it would start with the commands for all opensuse standard packages (from oss/non-oss repositories) but could be expanded to include lists from all repositories.

    Yeah, but I think the stuff to recommend a package based on command is in Fedora's own flavor of these tools.

    1. You don't give the source of that quote
    2. The place to ask for features is https://features.opensuse.org/, not this forum
    3. My openSUSE 11.1 system...
      Code:
      $ pingus
      
      The program 'pingus' can be found in the following package:
        * pingus [ path: /usr/bin/pingus, repository: zypp (games) ]
      
      Try installing with: sudo zypper install pingus
      
      bash: pingus: command not found
      It is provided by the package "command-not-found", installed by default. It uses ZYpp directly instead of PackageKit, but...

    PackageKit is included with openSUSE by default, as previously mentioned by others. IIRC the kupdateapplet uses PackageKit.
    kde4-kupdateapplet-packagekit
    gnome-packagekit
    kpackagekit

    Don't ask "if" something can be done, for it can always be done. Rather instead ask "How" can it be done.

    Yep, though you can configure which one to use; packagekit or the zypp backend

    Yip. To true.
    Personally, I don't like PackageKit. It is yet another layer.

    Um, OK. I'm not saying OpenSUSE needs to use/require packagekit. i don't like it either. I'm simply talking about the ability to type in a command and get a response saying that's in a package you don't have installed, would you like to install it. That's it.

    Then you also must not like pulseaudio as it's yet another layer on top. Oh wait, who likes pulseaudio at the moment?
