Artha is back in openSUSE:Factory  and should be available again
with the next snapshot. See this sr  for more background info. Big
thanks to Carsten Ziepke for submitting the updated app and to Matthias
Gerstner for checking the app for the previously reported exploit .
How can I get that and install it on OpenSUSE Tumbleweed?
I will explain it again. I explained this months ago to you, but I'll
You go to the search page: <https://search.opensuse.org/>
Click on "packages". You type the name of the package, "artha", and
make sure the box on the right says your version, Tumbleweed. Click
You get several results.
Click on "view" button below the "artha" block.
Now you are on this URL: <https://software.opensuse.org/package/artha>
Click on "show other distributions", and page down. You will get:
[official release] Official 1.0.5 [1 click download][expert download]
Notice that it says "official release". The package you want *is
already in the official distribution*, all the above was just for
confirmation and was not needed.
So you close that page, start YaST, select the software manager,
select search, type "artha", click on it, click install.
Done. Dead easy.
You have installed "artha" from those 4 official repos you asked how
to add. They have always been there.
Now please make an effort to remember these instructions for the next
time. This is basic.
If I had any hair left I'd tear it out. At about the third step or so,
there was a choice to install, so I took it.
In my instructions, I did not tell you to click install on the web page.
That shortcut is dangerous. You probably have tried [1 click install].
That's a nightmare.
Please, when I write instructions for you, read them to the end before
starting, and then do what I tell you to do, do not deviate. If stuck,
stop and ask.
Didn't work. Tried with
yast. Under Package it says No Results.
At this point you should have stopped and wait for another day. The
package has been published today, it is possible it is not ready
everywhere. Or you made a typing error.
Trying it with zypper in the console, it comes up with a conflict:
DESKTOP-4FH9U1P:/home/doug # zypper install artha
System management is locked by the application with pid 30093
Close this application before trying again.
I don't know what this ruby thing is, or why it is open, and I DON'T
KNOW HOW TO CLOSE IT!
YaST is coded with Ruby, so very probably you have YaST open somewhere else.
I made my living doing electronic engineering;
I'm not stupid. Why does
this thing elude me? (I'm smart enough not to try and use Windows! But
I've used Linux for years--even the 2019 version of Suse TW. I sure wish
I still had it, but the computer died. I had all the apps I wanted and I
got both printers installed and now it's like another world!)
Well, that is to be expected, TW is changing every day.
