Things To Do after installing OpenSUSE (Part2)

For This Post,I won’t credit to any sites. This is my own Research !
As an idea for you, i suggest all of you to skip the repo search update.
Paste the command and click ” Ctl + c ” and click “i” until the repo update is skipped.
After that the termial  will ask  you to type ‘y’ or ‘n’.
At that time click ‘Y’.

In this article I will show you how to install Videolan (VLC) on OpenSUSE 12.3 and OpenSUSE 12.2. The Videolan team provides us a repo, to make the installation easier.

All you have to do is to add the repository, update and install VLC.
For OpenSUSE 12.3:

$ sudo zypper ar VLC
$ sudo zypper mr -r VLC
$ sudo zypper in vlc
$ sudo  zypper install vlc-codecs

But luckily we have an option to open the RAR files in GNU/Linux.

install unrar utility via zypper by the following command
$ sudo zypper in unrar

Java web applets are used for games, home banking in some countries, and various other things.

Install the package icedtea-web with the package manager if it isn’t already installed.

Installing Java browser plugin in the terminal:
$ zypper install icedtea-web

Flash is used on tons of websites for embedded video, animations, games, ads and sometimes even site navigation.

The package flash-player should be installed automatically on the first run of the package manager, or you can install it manually (Main Repository (NON-OSS) is required).

Installing Flash in the terminal:
$ zypper install flash-player

6.7Zip(7-zip file compression program)
