I recently saw an article on an app called Eagle Mode (
So I thought I’d give it a go, however, after running the .RPM I get the following error:
nothing provides libpoppler-glib.so.4 needed by eaglemode-0.83.0-1.i586
Now if I search the almighty internet I do get locations where I can download an .RPM for this file.
My question(s): What are considered “good” repositories? And if I do get this repository will it automatically handle the dependencies?
if you do, and you are BRAVE, and VERY careful, you might get a working
example of Eagle Mode…
but, since you didn’t say what version of openSUSE you are using, then i
can’t be sure if you will install from Factory (i suggest you do NOT,
but others might have a different opinion)…
i see it is in a contrib repo for 11.4: but you never really know the
expertise of those…
on the other hand, if installed as a 1-Click it should settle all
dependencies, in theory…tell us about what happen in practice…
and, always when you 1-Click install either elect to NOT keep the repo
enabled, or afterwards go to YaST > Software Repositories disable and
stop the refreshing of all other than oss, non-oss, packman and update
(therefore following the GREAT advice found in the paragraph beginning
with “IMPORTANT” in this post: http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu so that your
repo list looks kinda like mine: http://paste.opensuse.org/81397698
Thank you very much for the replies from all (DenverD - I like the disclaimer),
I guess at this stage since I only just started playing with openSuse (12.1 - I must remember to add these details!) so there is still a balance between RTFM and playing with a trial installation.
I like what I see so far and must say that this is a very helpful community.
