    Default What to do when no RPM is available but a DEB is available?

    I'm looking for Qalculate with full GUI for KDE. There's a package for Ubuntu/Debian, but I can't find anything for openSUSE KDE 11.2. Is there an easy way to use the debian package? Some other solution?

    I wrote a guide some time not too long ago with some software installation hints: openSUSE software installation hints - openSUSE Forums

    Sorry, no dice. There's no KDE Gui version of Qalculate there.

    Thanks. Interesting. So now the question is how to determine which packages those are. Are they the command line only or the plasmoids or the full gui?

    EDIT: they look like the same packages I found previously - either command line or plasmoid, but no full GUI for KDE.

    Thanks. Nice guide. Based on what I'm seeing, it looks like I may have to compile Qalculate myself from the tarball... I didn't really want to do this because I assumed it wouldn't have the polished integration into openSUSE KDE that I've come to expect. Is that true? Maybe I'll just try it and see...

    Thank you. Those are interesting options too. But given that alien is experimental and that I couldn't find deb, I'm inclined to just compile from source.

    I'm stuck:
    Code:
    checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
    Which packages contain rt_externs.h, X11/Intrinsic.h, etc.? Is it xorg-x11-libX11-devel ?

    There are a lot of choices...
