    Question problem installing purple-hangouts, need to use spectool???

    Hi I am new to OpenSuse, coming from Ubuntu-Gnome, so when setting up I wanted to install Purple Hangouts for my Pidgin https://bitbucket.org/EionRobb/purple-hangouts/
    The command I couldnt run was
    Code:
    spectool --all --get-files ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/purple-hangouts.spec --directory ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/
    Is spectool some kind of RedHat command and what would be it's OpenSuse equivalant command to do the same?

    Welcome,

    The instructions given seem to be more RH specific. You could login on build.opensuse.org and create your own subproject to build this plugin.

    Found it: spectool is in the rpmdevtools package. Install it and let know if that helps you getting where you want.

    really? it doesnt seem to be?
    Code:
    gingerale@linux-4jlh:~> zypper search rpmdevtools

    'rpmdevtools' is already installed.
    No update candidate for 'rpmdevtools-8.10-lp150.1.3.noarch'. The highest available version is already installed.

    Nothing to do.
    gingerale@linux-4jlh:~> spectool
    If 'spectool' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf spectool
    gingerale@linux-4jlh:~> spectool --all --get-files ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/purple-hangouts.spec --directory ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/
    If 'spectool' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf spectool
    gingerale@linux-4jlh:~> cnf spectool
    spectool: command not found
    gingerale@linux-4jlh:~>

    Looks like a project exists, but is neglected.
    2 years of pull requests (fixes submitted) without resolution.

    https://github.com/openSUSE/obs-build

    So,
    <Maybe> if someone wanted to take over the project, there's a queue of fixes that might make it work...

    In the meantime,
    You might try a Fedora package to see if it might work. Prospects of an already compiled binary working is probably good since this kind of utility doesn't likely have any dependencies (guessing).

    You need to use
    rpmdev-spectool
