Thread: Zypper can't find all software

  1. #1

    Default Zypper can't find all software

    I've added various repositories using yast. However, zypper doesn't find everything that's there. For example, it returns no results for spideroak or euclid-wm even though those are in the repositories. Does it need any preparation or something?

    I've done a zypper refresh.

    When you search using zypper, it finds only package file names and not application file names within a package. You could give us your repo listing:

    Code:
    zypper repos -u
    And then the exact name for which you are searching, to duplicate the issue. For all things using Zypper, if you don't have Zypper Command, what are you waiting for?

    Zypper Command does not work for me. This is what I get:

    Code:
    /usr/local/bin/zc: line 1: --2013-08-09: command not found
    /usr/local/bin/zc: line 2: syntax error near unexpected token '('
    /usr/local/bin/zc: line 2: 'Resolving paste.opensuse.org (paste.opensuse.org)... 83.167.252.116, 2a01:430:28::3'
    Looks like it isn't parsing correctly? However, I also don't get why exactly I'm supposed to use it. Is it for this specific problem?

    -=WELCOME=- new user, but i can't answer that question above..

    i can answer: to the best of my knowledge spideroak has not been in
    the openSUSE repos since 11.3 or so...

    otoh euclid-wm is in one of the repos, but not any of the ones you
    have enabled..it is in an openSUSE Build Service repo and you can
    1-Click install it from http://software.opensuse.org/search

    Oh, by the way, the exact package names are just that: euclid-wm and spideroak. Well, the latter cannot be found in the online package search, but it does state on the wiki that I'm supposed to be able to install it.

    There are specific instructions in the blog given to get Zypper Command. ZC contains practically every way you can use zypper with full explanation of each command. In order to download and install zc properly, open up terminal, copy the next line from the code field, paste it into terminal and press enter:

    Code:
    sudo rm /usr/local/bin/zc ; sudo wget -nc http://paste.opensuse.org/view/download/75755470 -O /usr/local/bin/zc ; sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/zc
    Once you have it installed, in the same terminal session, type in zc.

    Code:
    zc
    Zypper Command will create a program icon on your desktop and in your applications menu. See my blog for more details on how it is used.

    You have to search in the opensuse.org search link. Go to the download
    distro page, and type the package you want in the text entry box on top
    of the page. If some opensuse.org repo has it, it will tell you.

    people say Linux is free...but, it is not....you have to work to earn
    it...that is to say, you didn't dig deeply enough...click the tools
    to the right of the search to "Show development, language and debug
    packages" where you will find a version in the OBS (as mentioned, it
    is not in the repos you have enabled)

    ok, the wiki is out of date...there are far far too few hands to keep
    it updated...the URL you gave begins with "With openSUSE 11.3" and as
    i wrote earlier: "to the best of my knowledge spideroak has not been
    in the openSUSE repos since 11.3 or so..."

    if you want spideroak get it from their site:
    https://spideroak.com/opendownload/

    oh WOW, i do not see that they have an openSUSE version...ask them why!

    and i was about to type: download the source and compile it....but, i
    sure can't easily find the source to download....ask them where it is...

    if you are successful you could update the wiki page..

    Oops, my bad. I typed it over from a different screen the first time, and apparently something went wrong there. I connected to the site from my openSUSE machine itself this time and copy/paste the text, and it works now. However, it is still not clear what I'm supposed to do in zc. I've looked around a bit, but I don't know how to solve the problem. Searching for euclid inside zc still doesn't give me euclid-wm (well, obviously, since it's just a front-end for the same program). How to troubleshoot this?

    I did just that in the first place. However, it turns no result for Spideroak. Is the wiki page outdated and is it no longer available?
