Thread: Gnome installer

    Default Gnome installer


    This is a simple problem but nonetheless frustrating when you can't see
    a way round it!

    After using Suse with KDE for some time I have recently changed to
    Gnome which I find I prefer.

    However when I come to install addition packages (specifically Vym)
    there opens a long narrow window listing dependencies which have to be
    installed as well for the chosed package to work. One is clearly
    expected to click on a button somewhere to agree that this should be
    done. But the window extends beyond the bottom of my screen and has no
    scroll bar. So I can't install anything not already installed with the
    distribution.

    I am using Suse 11.0 64 bit

    I am sure I am missing something simple but can't see what it is!

    Thanks!

    David

    Try this from a console (as root):

    zypper in vym

    If there are dependencies which need to be satisfied, it should list
    them for you to accept.
