I recently switched over from ubuntu to opensuse and am currently
running the latest distro and have run into a problem with awn. I was
able to install awn and everything is working correctly but when I try
to install the awn-extra-applets I get an error message that says
“nothing provides libpython2.5.so.1.0 needed by
awn-extras-applets-0.2.6-1.pm.1.i586”. I’ve tried installing both
through YaST and through terminal, but alas no success and i’m no linux
expert to try and troubleshoot what’s wrong unfortunately. I looked
through the forums and couldn’t find anything posted with a similar
problem so if there is something posted about this already then I
apologize but I would highly appreciate any and all help.
If you go into YaST > Software > Install Software and search for
libpython, you’ll see the library is there, only it’s a newer version.
If it’s not checked yet, check it and click Accept, so it gets
installed. Now try out your program again. If it’s still complaining
about the missing library, you have to find the installed library (man
find) on your system, and then create a symlink to the library in the
same folder that it resides in. You then rename the symlink to
libpython2.5.so.1.0 and hopefully everything should work.
