chrome-remote-desktop_current_amd64.deb = ??

Hi all.

I`m Asking about Crome Remote Desktop by Linux.
In the Googl i see only DEB package: chrome-remote-desktop_current_amd64.deb

How i can install this package in my Leap42.3 ?


You ( without further investigations from my side ) use “alien”.:

alien -r chrome-remote-desktop_current_amd64.deb

it will generate an rpm package

Thank you, but:

linux-nczo:/ # alien -r chrome-remote-desktop_current_amd64.deb
If 'alien' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf alien
linux-nczo:/ # zypper in alien
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
'alien' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
No provider of 'alien' found.
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.
linux-nczo:/ # zypper ls | grep -i packman
5  |     | Packman Repository                      | Yes     | (r ) Yes  | Yes     | rpm-md
linux-nczo:/ # 

it’s not in the main repo it was moved over to the utilities repo
you can install it with

zypper in

run alien as root or converted files might endup with mixed ownership

sudo alien -c -r deb_file.deb
