Hi all,
I have been searching the opensuse repository for a package called BRLTTY.
Its a package that will let a visually impaired user to use linux with a
braille display. There is something called opensuse blinux, but that only
supports a few braille devices. I have downloaded some RPMs but there are
dependency issues. So my question is, any other repository i may check out?
I have not worked that much with repositories in the passed, but I know what
it is.
Any help would be apreciated, many thanks.

I first look in the normal repositories via yast2. If not there, the
primary place to look is which searches the full build service.

Unfortunately BRLTTY is not found there either.

Looking at its home page, the compile is very straight forward.

tar -xzf brltty-release.tar.gz
cd brltty-release
make install

If your not comfortable doing that, I might volunteer to put it on the
opensuse build service for you.

Public projects have to be approved, but I can't imagine this one not
being accepted.
