    Default scribes

    Hello guys.

    seem to be on here every day with 11.4

    I'm trying to install scribes with no luck. I have gotten so far but need to install GtkSourceView2

    each time I try to install it or anything else that gives me the file I need throws up errors like this

    Code:
    [PK_TMP_DIR|dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.nto5y2] Repository already exists.
    can't find the dir and have even tried to remove by the

    Code:
    rmdir
    but doesn't remove it.

    anyone had a problem like this?

    I'm not familiar with this piece of software but on investigation it is not available from the repositories I have. It may be available under build but if not this may be a question to also direct to the package developers / forum of Scribes. Of course I apologise if this is software often used on Suse; personally I have found openSuse 11.4 the best os I've ever installed on my machine......... but of course that is my experience and I wish you well on fixing you dillema

    Are you talking about Scribus by chance? Here is its description in YaST:

    Scribus is a open source page layout program which produces commercial grade output in PDF and Postscript, primarily, though not exclusively, for Linux. While the goals of the program are ease of use and simple easy-to-understand tools, Scribus support for professional publishing features, such as CMYK and spot colors, easy PDF creation, Encapsulated Postscript import and export and creation of color separations.
    I am able to install and run this application. Its name and location is: /usr/bin/scribus

    yes I agree with you, I like 11.4 it seems to be a lot better then 11.3.

    I have never used scribe before. but told it's very much like textmate.

    So if anyone as a better suggestion I may leave scribes alone.

    regards

    I also tried to get scribes to work as I found a version for openSUSE 11.0 at RPM Search, but it is too old and would not work. It looks like if you use Fedora, you might be in luck, but not for openSUSE, at least at the moment.
