I'm snowed. I carefully copied the instruction and tried to run it,
this is the result:

not found on medium 'https://download.opensuse.org/'
Abort, retry, ignore? [a/r/i/...? shows all options] (a):
I went to firefox and got this mish-mosh:

firefox wants me to sign in! I don't think I ever had a username and
password for Firefox, but if I did it was a long time ago.
I tried to find another source in FF for artha, but it comes with a long
list of libs.
Anyway, all you need to do is load software.opensuse.org
and search for
What do you mean, "load software.opensuse.org" load those words into
what? I loaded them into Firefox, but finally wound up with a list of
libs that it needs.
In another episode, it looked like FF had the file ready to go, but it
wanted a login to Firefox! I don't think I ever logged in to Firefox.
I'm sorry, Dennis, this is not getting thru to me. I don't even drink
anymore, but I wish I did!
Sorry about the private reply. I just wasn't careful.

Pat seems to think someone gave me instructions on how
to deal with the
hidden repos, but I have no recollection of that--not how to determine
their names, or how to
get a directory of the files that are available therein, or how to
download one of them to my own system. Dammit, I may be old but AFAIK,
I'm not senile!
Be sure to reply to the list, not an individual. I
don't think we saw
that msg to Patrick.
Sorry--I wasn't concentrating on the reply path. I just
one and it is going to everbody.
IMO, for other obscure packages, as I wrote prev you
really want to
learn how to compile because with pkgs like that, it may be the only
option. It may seem intimidating at first, but it is not really
difficult, other than sometimes getting dependencies installed (which
the make command will tell you that are missing, if the source page
I can follow the directions for compiling and installing a file, and I
have done it every once in a while, but this doesn't seem to be getting
