1-Click Install Not Working

Hiya folks

Please forgive me if I sound a little basic in my terminology but I am very new user to Linux. Not long ago after deciding that Windows was a rubbish OS I made the leap to Linux. After trying a few distros I eventually settled with one I really liked ie openSUSE 12.3, after a few minor hiccups ie internet and Radeon graphics drivers not working I got everything installed and working well except for one thing 1-Click Install. When I click on the 1-Click Install link all I get is a page with coding on and thats it. Is there something somewhere where as before I just simply need to tick a box for it to work? The web browser I am using is Chrome so I don’t know if that is an issue. I am comfortable using a terminal if thats what’s needed to enable things. I am used to using DOS so I don’t know if that will help.

Please help as apart from this minor hiccup I am finding openSUSE to be a far superior OS than Windows and the more and more things I find I am using Windows less and less. Apart from one piece of software which I cannot configure Wine for as I don’t know much about Wine, I find I am using openSUSE 95% of the time as my main OS.

Thanks again

Phill

Yes 1- click works only with gecko based browsers ( firefox and
SeaMonkey) and Opera. Chrome and probably chromium don’t “want” to work
with 1-click. It is known issue.

Wine can be installed using YaST installer.

GNOME 3.6.2
openSUSE Release 12.3 (Dartmouth) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.7.10-1.16-desktop

A “1-click install” is just a plain text file (with the extension .ymp) that tells YaST which repos to add and which packages to install.
So if your browser doesn’t recognize “.ymp” files it will show them as text instead.

You could just save the text as file (or right-click on the link and choose “Save As…”) and then open the file in your favorite filemanager.
That should open it in YaST then and install the software.

Here’s your fix for chrome:
