Just switched to SUSE - Applications for Legal Work?


As the title of this post indicates, I recently switched over to SuSE from Fedora 14. I find that the default software repositories in YaST lack a lot of the amusements and applications I use for my legal work.

What I’m really looking for are apps that work well with the US tax code or plugins for law citations in LibreOffice. I could totally rely on SuSE if I could find that stuff!

I’m also looking for a few awesome games that I can download from an official repository. Can anyone recommend apps that fulfill my needs, any cool non-rogue RPG games or any software repositories where I can find them?

I’ve got an X86_64 machine, openSuSE 11.4 KDE installed and I’ve got 4GB of DDR3 RAM.

As you might have also guessed, I’m pretty green too. Thanks guys!

I suggest you install the multimedia
Multimedia in One Click

This will add Packman repo
Loads of games in there

There is also a games repo in the build service:

Only add this if there isn’t enough in Packman
Become su - and do the following

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/games/openSUSE_11.4/ games
zypper ref

(a) to accept always

browse the contents in Yast > Software > Software Management
View by repo > games

Currently the LibreOffice extension manager takes you to the OpenOffice extensions page and there are no significant differences in the fundamental code of OO and LO. So extensions that work for OO should work for LO.

Thanks everyone! The games and packman repos were both fantastic. I didn’t know that about LO and OO!
