Thread: autokey install fails

    Default autokey install fails

    Hi,

    Trying to install autokey from
    https://software.opensuse.org/downlo...ackage=autokey
    results in
    Download (curl) error for 'https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:dnh/openSUSE_Leap_42.3_standard/home:dnh.repo':
    Error code: Bad URL

    Changing the URL to "http://.." instead of "https://.." successfully adds the repo but after "zypper refresh" and "zypper install autokey" it says:
    'autokey' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
    No provider of 'autokey' found.

    Asking for suggestions to successfully install autokey! ;-)

    Mike

    This was discussed recently. It is consequence of openSUSE redirecting HTTPS to HTTP and zypper accepting only "secure" redirects (HTTPS to HTTPS).

    That's correct - there is no binary package with name "autokey". Should there be one?

    This is the proper url: https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...42.3_standard/

    So to add this repo by way of zypper:
    Code:
    zypper ar https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/dnh/openSUSE_Leap_42.3_standard/ home:dnh
    Do this as root:
    Code:
    su -
    And don't forget to refresh before you actually download and install autokey:
    Code:
    zypper ref;zypper in autokey-common
    Hope I'm not forgetting anything and hope this helps.

    I'm wondering, now, why you went with home:dnh? I did a software search and found the following: https://software.opensuse.org/package/autokey

    Thanks You for Your immediate responses!

    @ kerijan2003:
    Your instruction worked successfully after uninstalling all remainders if my previous tries including autokey 0.93.10 remnants. ;-)

    This URL provides three autokey version as src.rpm packages, none of which I succeeded to install, among others because of some python3-dbus-(something). Trying to solve this issue brought up information about having to install python >= 3.5 which I manage to install as optional package (in /opt !) only. So I guess I somewhat messed up the install.

    My fault. I didn't notice it was sources.
