Thread: Repository for software like luakit, uzbl or conkeror?

  1. #1

    Default Repository for software like luakit, uzbl or conkeror?

    Former Arch Linux user here.

    I have added the packman repo. However, zypper couldn't find luakit as well as uzbl - the lightweight browsers.
    Does openSUSE not have any repository for such less-known, but really good software?

    Go to the opensuse web page. Click on the big "get it" link. On the
    resulting page, there is an iput box above - type there the name of the
    _package_ you want. If somebody packages it, it will tell you. If not, try:

    [CODE]

    No I don't see luakit, uzbl or conkeror in software.opensuse.org or
    packman.It is not being packaged for openSUSE.

    But i could install xulrunner
    Code:
    sudo zypper in xulrunner
    and
    run the downloaded binary from
    http://conkeror.org/InstallationUnix using command
    Code:
    xulrunner /path/to/conkeror/application.ini

    I tried both of them, thanks. Luakit - my preference - indeed is not present there. It seems I will have to grab an rpm from Fedora's repos.

    Thanks for the effort. However, I have settled down on luakit which has my preferred vim-bindings instead of emacs-bindings. I will grab the rpm from Fedora's repos.

    Hi
    And you may have difficulty since some of the package names are
    different and the luafilesystem wasn't build for openSUSE 12.3.....

    I've built the latest version on luakit and lua51-filesystem in my
    Miscellaneous home repository;
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...llanous/luakit
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...-luafilesystem

    http://software.opensuse.org/package...ch_term=luakit
    http://software.opensuse.org/package...-luafilesystem
