Wanted to find Thunderbird--with Darryl help, found and installed it, and am using it right now.
It's in the main repository, package name MozillaThunderbird.
The easiest way to find packages you need is to use the search function in YaST That worked once. I found and installed KFind. Tried to "find" another app, and was stymied by
a program called ruby.ruby. Was told I need to close it. I didn't open it, and I don't know what it does.
What part of Daryyl's instruction, "The easiest way to find packages you need is to use the search function in YaST", did you not understand?
Tried killall on the pid number provided, but nothing happened. (This happened to me on TW also.) perhaps you should quit using a computer.
You're probably right. I'll be 83 in a couple of weeks. I should just lay down and die. --doug
83 and started with opensuse, wow!! doug there are a lot of solutions inside the web for "linux" for (your) problems. !!BUT!! a lot of them are older, a lot of them are for other distributions, and a lot of them are for console (text / black and white screen) these things are often "more or less" similar if the instructions are not to old for many linux distributions. PLEASE DO NOT USE THEM IF YOU NOT EXACTLY know what you do. as i was following some of your problems, you have up to now NOT the knowledge to use this kind of solutions. try to learn to use the "on board" tools of opensuse. especially "YAST2" its a wonderful tool. you are able to install and remove "all" software you want inside yast. and do much more things in all the yast modules. no need to hack in some special commands inside the terminal. (if you belong to leap) see the mail from carlos with the search functon inside yast-softwaremanagement. if you REALLY need some special software not provided with a new install of opensuse and the automatically installed repository's ask FIRST this list. do not install from a source you found somewhere. as more repos you install as more problem could be. AND ask here for a graphical solution. i think this is the way you should go. at the moment i think only the packman repos are needed additional for opensuse. how to do, ask here (there are somewhere without them you are not able to play all the audio or video files you found across the web. simoN -- www.becherer.de -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com To contact the owner, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
