(LINUX) LINUX (2021)

OpenSuse installation methods: AppImage, Snap, Alien, WebCatalog - additional ways to RPM (Zypper).

If you want to manipulate RPM packages in OpenSuse you need use Zypper and Rpm commands:

zypper dupapt-get dist-upgradeDistribution upgrade
zypper in "pkgname"apt-get install "pkgname"Install package
zypper se "pkgname"apt-cache search "pkgname"Search package
zypper refreshapt-get updateUpdate package list from repository
zypper updateapt-get upgradeUpdate all packages
zypper update "pkgname"apt-get upgrade "pkgname"Update a single package

rpm -i --test "pkgname".rpmdpkg -i --simulate "pkgname"Simulate installation of package
rpm -U "pkgname".rpmuse dpkg -iUpdate a package
rpm -e "pkgname"dpkg -r "pkgname"Uninstall a package

But this is only one way to installation packages to OpenSuse.

1. AppImage

A lot of cool packages to OpenSuse (for example Fiddler) distribute in AppImage launcher https://github.com/TheAssassin/AppImageLauncher/releases. So, you need to install support this launcher by package https://software.opensuse.org/package/appimaged.

2. Snap & Snapd

Second alternative way to install packages to OpenSuse is Snap/Snapd https://snapcraft.io/install/snap-store/opensuse. This way usually apply to .DEB packages from Ubuntu and has cool collection of apps https://snapcraft.io/store. This is way to install Snap/Snapd into OpenSuse.

Unfortunately in all of my OpenSuse computer Snap/Snapd is not working.

3. Alien

Alien https://salsa.debian.org/debian/alien is a great and workable converter from .DEB to .RPM packages. There are a lot of implementation to instal it to OpenSuse https://software.opensuse.org/package/alien.

4. WebCatalog

WebCatalog https://webcatalog.io/ is a great and workable collection of apps, can installed to OpenSuse by one click.
