Thread: Would like to know if you have these specific apps

    Default Would like to know if you have these specific apps

    Hello there, how goes it? I am thinking of trying OpenSuse again.

    There are some apps I'd like to know if you have before I decide to make a switch.

    easytag
    soundkonverter
    asunder Cd ripper
    lame-mp3
    normalize
    Audacity

    Can you watch DVD's on this distro or is that not allowed?

    Hi
    A quick look at the search feature on Packman here (quick search);
    http://packman.links2linux.org/
    and the Open Build Service search here;
    http://software.opensuse.org/search?
    should provide the files necessary. For dvd's you will need
    libdvdcss2...

    Have a read of this blog entry;

    software.opensuse.org: Search is a good place to start looking for the software you want.

    Of course playing DVDs is "allowed", however you will have to install some non-OSS to do so. It's really easy. More info at https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...one-click.html

    thank you for the links and info.

    I remember trying to get DVD to work on here long ago, but failed to get it to run. Maybe each distro is different. The one I am using now only needs me to get libdvdcss and libdvdread I think, or libdvdnav.

    I think at this moment, if I try it, I may need to use a USB to boot up to the system and install it. I don't suppose there's a way to burn a CD instead of a DVD? Is the 4.7 GB ISO file the only one? I better be careful as I have limited data on my hotspot.

    Hi
    You can use SUSE Studio to create your own LiveCD with all your
    applications added. Adding can either be done via adding the Open Build
    Service repositories, or uploading the rpms direct to your appliance...

    You can then test on the site before downloading......

    https://susestudio.com

    The added bonus is when building the appliance it automatically adds
    the update repository and pulls in all the latest updates to your
    appliance.

    You could do an network installation.
    http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Network_installation

    You'll need to need to download a cdimage of 250MB.
    Another benefit is that you only download what you need to install.
    Unlike when you're downloading a dvdimage that contains many software that
    you'll never use.

    Thanks. I have purchased a few DVD-R's, being I will probably need some for back up as well. Sometime today, I plan to try out Opensuse again.

    There is an install DVD, and two live CDs that can also be installed
    (one for Gnome, one for KDE). In fact, the CDs are a bit to large for a
    single CD (since 12.3), so that they are aimed for USB sticks instead.
    There is also a rescue/live CD with XFCE, that can not be installed.
    Plus, there is a small Network CD, in which everything has to be
    downloaded at install time (total download size is smaller).


    Many of the multimedia apps you want are not available on the openSUSE
    repos, for legal reasons, but instead they are hosted outside, at
    Packman and Videolan (use one, not both). Most popular is Packman, I
    believe.

    This is explained in detail in some of the links others have provided.

    I got easytag going now using Packman. Is this just off the website, Packman? I thought the last time I was on openSuse, there was an app for that on the desktop.

    I have other questions, but it is best in some other topic.

    It is an external site, but it is accessed with the same application
    that is used to install all the packages.

    You start yast, click on "select repositories", click "add", then select
    "community repositories", click "next", and one of the entries in the
    list will be "packman". Tick it, and "OK".

    Now you can see the entire list of available packages, including those
    of packman.
