OpenSUSE: Webpin - Finding And Installing Applications Easily

Filed under
Software

One of the problems many SUSE/openSUSE users have is locating software. Package management eases installation of software, but locating packages which are not in the official repositories may be problematic. openSUSE’s main repository is fairly large with approximately 22,000 officially supported packages. However there are still many packages that openSUSE cannot package for logistical or legal reasons. Most software can be found in one of many package repositories, but finding the repository containing the package containing what you are after may be a pain when you don’t know where to look.

If you’re looking for a search engine for finding openSUSE RPMs, you can use Webpin. Webpin will automatically register new repositories and use libzypp for dependency resolution, leaving you with very little to do, while the packages are downloaded and installed quickly and transparently.
