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

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

I have also tried that, but there are still dependency issues. That's what I
first tried.
BRLTTY seems to be in most distibutions repositories, so it's very strange that
it's not in opensuse.
Best regards and thanks,
Christian
