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.
Christian

I first look in the normal repositories via yast2. If not there, the
primary place to look is

http://software.opensuse.org/search 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
./configure
make
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.

Thanks
Greg
