I am new here, and I don’t know how to post a question. So I replied my question here, and hope some experts could see and answer it.
I installed openSuse 11.0 on my computer successfully last week. And now I want to install one statistical software from its setup CD. When I inserted the CD into the drive, then the contents were shown automatcially, and I saw a CD icon shown on desktop. I found a file **setup, I double clicked it, it shows “Run in terminal”. I clicked, but nothing happen. Is there any thing wrong?
Is there anyone know how to install other softwares on this openSuse system?
What are you looking for/trying to install? If your installation CD’s or DVD are listed as a source in YaST, software repositories, then no amount of magic is going to put more packages on the CD’s or DVD> You may need to add an external repository to find what you need…which is again?
Well the cabextract and fetchmsttfonts worked for MS fonts and seems after rebooting last night (I haven’t checked till now) all the TTF fonts I moved to /home/[user name]/.fonts directory are now available for my applications.
