I am trying to install Albert https://github.com/albertlauncher/albert it’s a nifty little tool. I am used to debian and not very experienced with linux. I am learning, slowly… I switched to opensuse because it seems to be what I want out of a distro. I have tried basically all the top 30 distros and constantly run into issues with hardware, xorg, the software i need for my web development work isn’t compatible, or something else. This is the only one that has went smoothly for me. So I am setting it up to my liking with the gnome3 DE and I can’t figure out how to install albert.
The problem is I only see Leap, and factory. I am on tumbleweed. I read that tumbleweed is based on factory but last night I messed up big time and added a bunch of repos for leap, and the main i can’t remember what its called but someone said I can’t have all these different repo types and next thing I know my only browser (Firefox) wouldn’t launch, zypper was broken completely, Yast was broken also and I had to reinstall.
So now I am trying to avoid repeating that. Any advice on how to install this? is tumbleweed ok with factory repos?
