    Default UK. Anyone have HMRC BPT-rpi working on OpenSUSE?

    UK. Anyone have HMRC BPT-RPI working on OpenSUSE?
    I am trying to shift completely from Windows & OpenSUSE to just OpenSUSE. Regretfully UK Government uses 32 bit software for tax purposes
    and the HMRC Basic PAYE Tools-RPI only works on Windows systems but they publish help for 32 bit Ubuntu .
    Link: https://www.gov.uk/government/public...rking-on-linux

    However I could not get HMRC BPT-RPI working.
    Has anyone got HMRC BPT-RPI working on OpenSUSE?
    If so, what is necessary to get it working on OpenSUSE?
    Thanks in advance.
    Eion MacDonald.

    Hi
    By the looks you need to install the relevant 32bit libs. If you open a terminal and run rti.linux it will spit out errors of any missing libs, you need to search and install as required on the names...

    For example;
    Code:
    ./rti.linux 
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/home/teamcity/tools/python-2.7.10/lib/python2.7/site-packages/cx_Freeze/initscripts/Console.py", line 27, in <module>
      File "main.py", line 51, in <module>
      File "main.py", line 15, in main
      File "/home/teamcity/BuildAgent/work/83cf58dc683d38c6/src-copy/django_offline/__init__.py", line 11, in <module>
      File "ExtensionLoader_PyQt4_QtGui.py", line 11, in <module>
    ImportError: libXext.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    As root user;
    Code:
    zypper se libXext
    zypper in libXext6-32bit

    [QUOTE=malcolmlewis;2852025]Hi

    UNQUOTE]

    I installed things in the 32 bit version and the overall 'allow 32 bit versions' however it did not work, so unloaded all downloads to revert to working system.

    Exactly what lib and other items are needed?
    HMRC help has things that are not in YaST lists for XFCE.

    That is why I asked for who had done it. So I can follow the procedure they had done.
    Thanks for quick response but exact supporting libs etc for OpenSuse XFCE are needed,
    Any idea of list?
    I did not get to point where BPT even tried to open.
    Where should I expand the download ZIP?

    Hi
    All I did was download the tarball and run (as my user);
    Code:
    ./payetools-rti-17.4.17200.477-linux
    I then went through and picked a user location for it to install HRMC, in my case /data/applications/HRMC/payetools-rti then cd'd to this directory and manually ran the app as indicated in my previous thread. Then it would be a matter of stepping though the 32bit libs needed, I didn't proceed any further... suggest you do that first and get all the 32bit libs installed..?
