Another simple software install demo.

Writing about web page

I have created some example link buttons to trigger software installation from a web page.

e.g.: installlogo.

And set up a demo page with 3 working examples people can use to try out the concept. See for the demo page. If you’re on openSUSE give it a try and let me know your comments & ideas. You’ll need to install the demo package as per instructions on the demo page.

If you have installed it correctly you should be able to click one of the links and get a wizard like this which will add the required repositor(y|ies) and install the software for you.

There are also the “Install now” links on the testing package search page which are automatically generated, and should work the same way.

You can also try out the package search YaST client which allows you to use the package search from within YaST, and select any package on any repository for installation with the aforementioned wizard. Simply run ”/sbin/YaST2 PackageSearch” after installing the package linked from the installdemo page.
