I’m trying to get an app install and working (Puddletag). Other tagging apps just aren’t working well.
The problem is that it seems only available as a .deb or to compile from source (which I’ve not yet done). While I know it’s great to know how to do it and a great project, I have a lot on right now and if I can find an easier way, I’d love to go that route.
I’ve tried installing from a Snap and while the install works great, it can’t access any of my files because of the sandboxing and the dev didn’t offer the options to use any of the snaps interfaces (I’ve tried many with no luck). So, I’m looking for other options.
My other question is about OBS. I know it’s an OpenSUSE project but does that mean that anything in the OBS can be easily installed on OpenSUSE? The one that’s the latest version only shows Debian Testing in the dropdown menu and I’m worried that means it won’t work with OpenSUSE (which is confusing to me since it’s their project, but I digress). Could anyone confirm this either way? This is the latest version I could find (by opening each link): https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:bgstack15/puddletag. And here is a link with several of the options: https://build.opensuse.org/search?search_text=Puddletag.
And of course, there’s Alien. I could simply convert the .deb to an .rpm. I’ve heard mixed things about it but it must work at least some of the time or it wouldn’t be an option, right? (Or something like that.)
Are there any other options that I’ve missed?
I’d love to learn which might be the best way to go. Any info would be amazing! Thanks so much.
