    Default How to locate a package - xcompmgr

    I had installed fluxbox into my openSUSE 11.3 installation and wanted to add the package - xcompmgr

    However I google, just can't locate it.

    Is there anyway to locate packages specifically for openSUSE 11.3?

    By the way, I've also tried :
    - Webpin
    - software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.3

    There is a way, but you've already tried it.

    So I think it's not available in a package for openSUSE 11.3.
    What you can do is grab the source and compile it yourself.

    Best of luck!
    Where did I put my coffee cup?
    dir -R /home/* | grep "coffee cup"

    xcompmgr ist part of Xorg. So you should have it already.

    rpm -ql xorg-x11 | grep xcompmgr

    # rpm -ql xorg-x11 | grep xcompmgr and get this
    /usr/bin/xcompmgr

    This is embrassing

    Was looking for it the wrong way with
    # zypper search xcompmgr and got this
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    No packages found.

    Thanks for the pointer.

    I gave you that command just to show you that this program was already installed on your system.
    You're not going to find it with zypper. There is no xcompmgr package. The program xcompmgr located in the /usr/bin directory is part of the package xorg-x11. You don't need to install it. You have it already.
