openSUSE 11.1+awn extras woes

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 needed by”. 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 and hopefully everything should work.

thnx Josip i’ll test this out today after work and see if I can get it working

Sorry to leech here, but i was wondering where you found the extra applets rpm. When i added the repos for them it wasnt in there, and i can’t find one for suse 11.1 :frowning:

SousukeSagara - wondering if you ever found a repo for the awn-extras for 11.1. I’ve been looking for the same thing.
