How does one use one-click-install?

If I click on a link, I get a page that looks like this:
I’m using the Chrome browser.

P.S. I just noticed this “Posting Permissions” comment:

  • You may not
    post attachments - what is that about? Seems like it’d be a lot easier to add an image to this post than have an external link.

The one-click only functions when the browser “knows” how to handle MIME type used for this (forgot the exact name of the type). Firefox, as released with openSUSE, has this “knowledge” added.

Your Chrome doesn’t. Thus it can not do better then display what it gets send as plain text.

And we have a good place for images to be linked to in posts:

BTW, my advice would be to add the repo and then install it. A bit more clicking then “1”, but then you know what you have done to your repo list.

Thank you!

Ah. In reading about the “one click” stuff, I’d missed that point.

And we have a good place for images to be linked to in posts:

Another missed hint. Again, thank you.

AFAIR the YaST installer will add the repo automatically telling you it’s going to do so. And I think it even asks if you want to keep that repo.

I’m not using Chrome but I’m quite sure it has got a right-click to get an “open with” dialogue? Then search for the YaST2 1-Click-Installation. Maybe even just yast2 might do the trick.

It will only work if the application is known to the browser.

BTW, the MIME type is text/x-suse-ymp. And that will be send down to the browser in the HTTP(S) protocol that envelopes the file. The browser knows e.g. what to do with text/html. img/png, etc. etc. The x- in x-suse-ump means that it is a non-standard MIME type. In this case typicaly something invented by SUSE for SUSE Linux and openSUSE and support for it will be build in some applications by SUSE. Thus applications not adapted for it will not understand it and fall back to the main type text.

Yes, right. Thanks. That took me quite a while to reproduce. Apparantly I didn’t have any browser installed that didn’t know the application. One workaround would be to download the ymp file and then start it with YaST. But then your advice about adding the repo applies.:wink:

I would avoid using them

Follow the advice to add the repo manually

The more repos you add, the more difficult it can become to manage them all, unless you truly understand how they work and how to manage them
