1 Introduction

This page is dedicated to explaining how to install Helyx-OS in openSUSE.

If you do not yet feel comfortable using Linux, then perhaps you better first read the page Working with the Shell and train a bit with the shell/terminal environments, so you can have a better perception of the steps shown below.

2 Copy-Paste steps

A few notes before you start copy-pasting:

  1. Lines that start with # don't have to be copy-pasted. They are just comments to let you know what's going on.
  2. One wrong character is enough for breaking this guide, so make sure you can read the characters properly or that the installed language system does not break the copied characters!

2.1 Helyx-OS v2.3.1

Valid versions: OF Version 24.png

In this section are the instructions meant for Helyx-OS v2.3.1.

Note: If you have the 64 bit architecture of openSUSE, perhaps it's best to follow the official installation instructions: Installation of the Latest 64 Bit Linux Binaries @ Github

2.1.1 openSUSE 42.1

Unfortunately it's not possible to provide simple instructions for it, because there are several missing Java wrapper libraries from the RPM installation packages. Therefore, VTK will not work properly and will result in Helyx-OS crashing soon after launching it.
