Thread: Install software

  1. #1

    Default Install software

    When I click on an rpm on a website the normal behaviour used to be that a dialogue would appear asking:
    Do you want to install this file.
    You could click -install- or -close-

    If you chose install then installation went ahead after a dialogue box asked you to authorise by inputting a password.

    What has been happening recently is if you select install you then get the error:
    Authorisation failed.. You have failed to provide correct authentication. Please check any passwords or account settings.
    If you select -more details- then it just says Authentication failed.

    Once you press close on this error notice you then get another notice:
    The action could not be completed: The request failed: more details are available in the detailed report. When you go to the detailed report it says:
    Failed to install file: Failed to obtain authentication.

    All this happens without once offering up an input for entering a password. I have checked that one is not getting stuck under other windows or something.

    Not very helpful and no pointer to how you might correct the problem. I have looked all over the system through yast and cli but cannot determine what has gone wrong.
    I have searched forums and on google but there is no straight-forward mention of this and in any case the suggestions have not been relevant.
    This has become very annoying as installing something with 1-click works and asks and gets authentication but it seems this works with another installer and not software installer.

    Can anybody please help me here.

    Open a terminal and install a rpm

    Thanks.. This is an option but does nothing towards resolving my problem or understanding it. If authentication is failing then it may affect other things and I would like to resolve it. Not sure if -zypper in <package>- resolves dependancies also.

    Cheers

    What rpm programmes did you try to install and did nothing?

    When I click on an rpm on a website the normal behaviour used to be that a dialogue would appear asking:

    You could click -install- or -close-

    If you chose install then installation went ahead after a dialogue box asked you to authorise by inputting a password.
    Typically, we don't normally install software this way in openSUSE except in special circumstances.
    We have no idea what you have installed or where from.

    It could be anything. Supertuxkart or Multiplication station. I have attached some screenshots below:

    Sorry I just realised I am not allowed to post attachments.

    This site for example?
    Index of /repositories/Education/openSUSE_11.3/i586

    That is my point. There is no dialogue box asking for a password.... Just the error that a password has not been entered.
