Moving to openSUSE
I am marking my previous thread (about booting opensuse from USB as solved. But now that I can install opensuse, I need to know about options regarding the applications I use. Are there suse versions or alternatives for the following applications? (I'm not gonna list mainstream ones as those are probably in the repos)
1- Guayadeque Music player (SVN version) <--- That's my main music player
2- Clementine Music player
3- JDownloader <-- Java-based download manager (needs to be installed using a .bin file)
4- kate (K Advanced Text Editor) I know open suse comes with a notepad-like application, but I like the features of kate better
5- Qtracktor (Music sequencer and mixing software)
6- Converseen (image converter)
7- Handbrake (video converter)
8- BasKet note pads (one note alternatives), If the same software is available for suse, can I migrate my existing notes?
9- Enna media center
10- Oregano circuit software (I need this one for work)
11- Quanta+ (html editor)
12- Covergloobus (Player control and album art/lyric/tab display)
I realize that they probably all exist for suse, since they are linux apps in the first place, but migrating from debian-based to rpm-based systems begs those questions.
Appreciate the help.
4 - yes, any kde install probably includes this, or should have it as an opttion, but you should be able to add to other installs anyway
8 - yes
10 - yes, at least I have installed it previously
11 - yes, previously, but hasn't either the name changed or been superseded by something else?
Others, I am not sure, but you can always tell (and for a particular version, which may change things) from the software search at:
Thank you salasi for the response and the link. I managed to find clementine and qtractor on there (qtractor has an older version in opensuse, the one I currently have in kubuntu is 0.4.8, in opensuse it's 0.4.7).
Let me amend my questions about the other programs (after an in-depth search on linux-related websites)
1- Can I pull an application from SVN in opensuse?
2- Can I install bin files?
the command I used in kubuntu was:
4- Can I convert .deb files to .rpm to install on opensuse?
Help is appreciated
1, must be possible, as some of the programs in repos have svn-type idents....but don't ask me how to do it, because SVN numbering always gets me confused
2 should work if you have all the dependencies already installed. Which of course, you usually won't....
3 Well, you can install them, just that it probably won't work/you'll break something...
4 Yes. You can use alien. But there is a good chance that it won't work (actually, that's probably an answer for the previous question, too)
