Followed the guide here to get all the media stuff installed.

https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/407184-multi-media-restricted-format-installation-guide#post2394434

 

Already did the whole thing and then realized I followed the guide for openSUSE 12.3 and my installed OS is openSUSE 13.2 (damn dyslexia).

The last post in that thread was supposed to be for 13.1 and when I click the link to go to that one it wants me to log in to see it. Can't remember if I ever signed up for the forums there.

 

So that means now that I have it all set up for Packman and libdvdcss repos for 12.3

What do I do now?

go into yast, click on the software repositories, take a screen shot so i can see what repo's you have installed.

they should all be for the 13.2 if they are for 12.3 we'll make sure you haven't installed anything from them and then delete them.

 

for future reference, in the software repositories window if you click on the add button, then put the dot in community repo's, click next, then you will see a list of repo's you can add, the 3 i always add are, nvidia for graphics drivers (only if you need it of course.), packman and libdvdcss.

 

once we have all the correct repo's installed i'll give you a list of things to install, i'll also then tell you how to get silverlight working so you can watch your porn channels. ;)

 

:b33r:

 

just saw your screenshot in other topic is that all the repo's you have installed at the moment?

 

and what's that standard repo for? personally i'd delete it.

 

tried adding a screenshot to this post of my repo's but of course on this forum it's not allowed so have no way to show you a list of my repo's and can't be bothered to type them all out for you. :rofl3:

 

from your link.

 

Ultimately you need these 5 key repositories.

I'm not sure if that standard repo is something that was already there, don't remember adding any others.

Looks like it did add the 12.3 ones, the update icon showed up too and says there is 43 updates.

 

th_snapshot8_zpsswl7gjvn.png

 

I don't think there is any specific driver for graphics installed, the A4-6300 APU uses Radeon HD8370D for graphics. KInfocenter shows 3D accelerator as unknown and Gallium 0.4 on AMD ARUBA.. OpenGL version 3.0 Mesa 10.3.7 and kernel module unknown

don't update anything at the moment,

 

highlight the standard repo and then click the delete button, do the same for the packman and libdvdcss repo's.

 

once they are deleted follow instructions in above post to add the correct libdvdcss repo, you already have the correct packman repo installed so make sure you delete the 12.3 one you've also installed.

 

when they are installed open the software manager, click on package in the top left corner, mouse over the "all packages" then click on the update if newer version available, this will then give you a list of updates.

now click on accept to install them.

OK deleted the ones that were for 12.3 and got the 13.2 libdvdcss one now.

 

Doesn't show any updates available as of now either, so the 43 from before must have been for 12.3

 

Now that I think of it, seems I've done this before on an older machine some time ago when I tried running it on openSUSE 11.1

Easy to do, too bad I didn't remember :rofl3:

ok now i'll run through some of what i install.

 

open software manager,

click the view button and change it to patterns,

 

don't worry if there is already a tick in anything, just move onto the next item.

 

put a tick in

 

linux kernel developement

kde developement

c/c++ developement

rpm developement

 

click on the view button again and change it back to search,

 

now search for and tick

 

kernel-source

handbrake-gtk

simplescreenrecorder

libdvdcss2

sensors

k3b-codecs

libxine2-codecs

vlc-codecs

ffmpeg

 

now click on package in the top left corner, mouse over the "all packages" then click on the update if newer version available,

 

click accept to install everything it lists.

 

once that's done we'll install pipelight so you can watch any silverlight content.

first open firefox and click on tools and then add-ons search for and install both

adblock plus (not needed to watch silverlight content but always good to have in my opinion.)

user agent overrider (sometimes needed depending on site, used to tell sites your running a different browser and os so they will stream content to you.)

 

now to install pipelight repo, open a terminal, su to root and then copy and paste the below commands one line at a time into it and hit enter after each line.

zypper ar --refresh http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/DarkPlayer:/Pipelight/openSUSE_13.2/home:DarkPlayer:Pipelight.repo

zypper ref

zypper install pipelight

pipelight-plugin --update

exit

now pipelight is installed, we have to enable the silverlight plugin,

now some sites work with the latest silverlight and others i use will only work with silverlight5.0 so you may need to try both.

 

in the terminal now as a normal user and not root enter the below command, it will run through some things and then you need to hit y to accept and that's it, you should now be able to watch silverlight content.

pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight

first before trying to watch anything open firefox and you should see a little blue box near top right corner, click on the down arrow next to it and put the dot next to the mac / firefox 29 setting.

this will make any site you use think your running an apple pc with firefox 29 browser, to turn this feature off and on just click the blue icon, when off it will be grey, click it again and it will be on and blue.

 

try watching sites with it off first, if no luck then turn it on and refresh page, or close and reopen browser.

 

now if you find some sites won't work, try changing the silverlight version, eg. for nextflix i need silverlight for sky i need silverlight5.0

 

open a terminal,

first disable whatever version your using,

pipelight-plugin --disable silverlight

then enable a different version

pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight5.0

to disable this version

pipelight-plugin --disable silverlight5.0

rinse and repeat. :mrgreen:

 

full pipelight/silverlight install guide is in the following links.

​OK got that done. Going to take a while to figure out what works and what doesn't. Turns out it will play just fine in Chromium though.

 

​Curious why also I can't play Forge of Empires in Firefox (says it needs flash player or higher installed, 11.2 is the last version for Linux).. but it plays fine in Chromium. And what's even more odd is that any other flash based game or site runs fine in Firefox with flash 11.2 so must be something in the way they develop the game.

Would be great to also figure out what keeps making my wifi drop off to 0 B/s even thought it has 97% signal and on average it gets 800KiB/s receive at best. Sometimes it will get up to 1.5MiB/s but takes 10 minutes for even text sites to actually display on the screen.

 

Other than that, anything else I need to do?

Never did anything for graphics driver, but from what I hear about AMD graphics I'm almost afraid to try.

Still stuck on getting fah to install as well. Did exactly as the directions say on folding site and keep getting an error about user cancelled action.

Installing FaH.......bear with me; this is how I got it to work.

 

Create a folder called FaH (or whatever you want) in /home/User/ so mine is /home/Nigsy/FaH

 

Run these in terminal one at a time:

 wget --no-check-certificate https://fah.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/release/fahclient/centos-5.3-64bit/v7.4/fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm

 wget --no-check-certificate https://fah.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/release/fahcontrol/centos-5.3-64bit/v7.4/fahcontrol-7.4.4-1.noarch.rpm

 wget --no-check-certificate https://fah.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/release/fahviewer/centos-5.3-64bit/v7.4/fahviewer-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm


Move the 3 .rpm archives to your new folding folder.

 

Either cd/ to or open a terminal session in your folding folder.

 

Run this command:

rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm

That will install the client

 

Then these 2 commands as root (Su); run them on at a time:

su -c 'rpm -i --nodeps fahcontrol-7.4.4-1.noarch.rpm'

 su -c 'rpm -i --nodeps fahviewer-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm'

That will install the control panel and the FaH viewer (you can leave that out if you want).

 

Now you need to move a few files that will have been created:

 

Open /usr/lib in superuser mode

Open lib/ Python 2.6/ Site Packages and copy the 2 FaH folders

 

post-35967-0-57420600-1443772268_thumb.png

 

Paste them (or copy to) Python 2.7 site packages and Python 3.4 Site Packages

 

Use these commands to start / stop the client:

 sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient start

 sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient stop

You will need to run them in terminal from the FaH folder you created in home/User/FaH

 

You can then edit the FaH config.xml file with the Pits FaH group and your own personal pass key.

<config>
  <!-- Network -->
  <proxy v=':8080'/>

  <!-- User Information -->
  <passkey v='xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'/>
  <team v='32035'/>
  <user v='nigsy'/>

  <!-- Folding Slots -->
  <slot id='0' type='CPU'/>
</config>

Restart the client and you should be good to go!!

 

Hope this helps.

Run it as sudo: su rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm

 

/var is a root folder.

I must have done something wrong at some point. In Dolphin I can go to Root folder (it's red), then go to Home folder and that goes to a device called primary. There I can see a folder named justin and when I go to that one it goes to Home. That is where I put FaH folder. That appears in Dolphin as > Home > FaH

justin@linux:~/FaH> su rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm
su: invalid option -- 'i'

Usage:
 su [options] [-] [<user> [<argument>...]]

Change the effective user ID and group ID to that of <user>.
A mere - implies -l.  If <user> is not given, root is assumed.

Options:
 -m, -p, --preserve-environment  do not reset environment variables
 -g, --group <group>             specify the primary group
 -G, --supp-group <group>        specify a supplemental group

 -, -l, --login                  make the shell a login shell
 -c, --command <command>         pass a single command to the shell with -c
 --session-command <command>     pass a single command to the shell with -c
                                   and do not create a new session
 -f, --fast                      pass -f to the shell (for csh or tcsh)
 -s, --shell <shell>             run <shell> if /etc/shells allows it

 -h, --help     display this help and exit
 -V, --version  output version information and exit

For more details see su(1).
justin@linux:~/FaH> sudo: su rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm
If 'sudo:' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf sudo:
justin@linux:~/FaH>

I must have done something wrong at some point. In Dolphin I can go to Root folder (it's red), then go to Home folder and that goes to a device called primary. There I can see a folder named justin and when I go to that one it goes to Home. That is where I put FaH folder. That appears in Dolphin as > Home > FaH


 

You've put it in the root folder; not the user folder.

It needs to go in /home/User not /Home (note the capitals); if you open Dolphin it should default to the correct directory (you should have documents, downloads, music, video folders); this is where you need to create the folding folder; not on /Home - It's a bit confusing but /Home (or just / ) is root home; but on the Dolphin navigation bar /home can be accessed by pressing the folder called Home (again note caps).

justin to get to root, just type in su and hit enter then you need to enter your password, you will know when your root because the colour turns red for location.

sudo does the same thing, gives you roots powers but only for that one command your entering.
su changes the terminal so everything you enter into it will be be with roots powers until you type exit to change it back to a users terminal.(in other words stays red until you exit.)

so the commands are either.

sudo rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm

or

su
rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm

entered one line at a time followed by enter key

or

su -c 'rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm'

all those 3 ways do exactly the same thing the -c after su lets it know it needs to run a single command.

su rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm

that's invalid because you didn't use the -c after su.

sudo: su rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm

that's invalid because you have the ":" after sudo and also because you have su in the command.

now not having installed folding for ages i'm no help with the exact steps but you do really need to carefully read nigels instructions and follow them to the letter.

quick tip, for you open dolphin navigate to where ever nigel tells you then hit the F4 key and you'll notice a terminal will open at the bottom of the dolphin window at your location, then you can enter any commands, hitting F4 again will close the terminal again.

:b33r:

 

just to clarify nigel

 

Either cd/ to or open a terminal session in your folding folder.

 

Run this command:

rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm

That will install the client

following your instructions from this post http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?/topic/205307-hope-i-didnt-screw-things-up/&do=findComment&comment=1800818

because justin should be in a user fah folder in his home directory at this point does the above command need to be run with root permissions? like i said been ages since i've installed it so don't remember.

don't know if you can see it alright, but when i open dolphin this is the how it looks when it first comes up. i put the FaH folder there, which is Home

can't find any other /home folder so guessing that means i messed something up starting with the opensuse install.

no you didn't mess anything up.

 

when you open dolphin it opens in the users home folder. now if you click next to where it says home (above white window.), it will show you the full real path to where you are actually located, for nigel it's /home/nigel for you it is probably /home/justin.

 

you have created the fah folder in the correct place, if you click on it to enter it, you will see it's full location is /home/justin/fah

 

/ is root and the start of the folder structure.

click on the red root folder and you are at / and can see all the main folders, click on the home folder and you will see all/any users created on your system, you will see a justin folder, click on that and you will find you are in exactly the same place as when you first opened dolphin.

 

understanding the folder structure and where your located at is very important when executing commands, so is the case sensitivity fah is not the same as Fah for example.

 

when making changes to anything in the users folder you do not need to have roots powers but when trying to change anything in most of the other folders you do, and one of the reasons why linux is more secure than running a windows os.

i see it shows > Home > FaH

 

th_snapshot11_zpssv3thzmh.png

 

that is where i have the rpms and from that location i did right click, Actions, Open Terminal Here and that gave me the following:

justin@linux:~/FaH> rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm
error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (Permission denied)
justin@linux:~/FaH>

click above white window next to Home > FaH and you will see it show the full path as home/justin/FaH

 

you are in the correct place by the way. (can't really read your screenshots they are to small for my poor eyesight. :rofl3: )

just saw the magnify icon that made it bigger so i can read them.

 

now it seems you do need root permissions to do the next part so hit F4 to open a terminal and then enter this command. (you can copy and paste it in there.)

su -c 'rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm'

:b33r:

 

a quicker way so you won't need to keep entering root's password is to do this.

su
rpm -i --nodeps fahclient-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm
rpm -i --nodeps fahcontrol-7.4.4-1.noarch.rpm
rpm -i --nodeps fahviewer-7.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm
exit

next part is to have 2 dolphin windows open, one has to be a superuser dolphin window though that you will link or copy the folders nigsy mentions into.

;)

 

using the cd command with path is exactly the same as first using dolphin and getting to the correct folder and the using F4 to open a terminal.

 

justin@linux:~/FaH>

that bit tells you where you are, so this bit

justin@linux:~/FaH> cd /home/justin/FaH 

was just telling it to go to exactly where you already were. ie. in the /home/justin/FaH folder.

 

everything to the left of > is your current location everything after is the command your trying to run.

when you are a root user the > changes to a # and your location turns red.

 

everything is going great now enter the last 2 commands in nigsy's post to install the fahcontrol and fahviewer programs.

 

:b33r:

close both browsers.

open a new one. put it on the left (this is the user dolphin.)

 

now click on green icon bottom left corner, (assuming your using the default and not changed the menu to old style.) mouse over applications, click on system, click on file manager, click on file manager - super user mode.

 

enter root password and when the new dolphin opens place it on the right. (this is superuser dolphin.)

 

now in the left window (user dolphin) click on root, click on usr folder, click on lib folder, click on python 2.6 folder, click on site-packages

you never need to change anything else in this left window.

 

now in right window (superuser dolphin) click on root, click on usr folder, click on lib folder, click on python 2.7 folder, click on site-packages

 

both windows are now open in the correct place, just drag and drop both folders mentioned from the left window into the right window and choose either link or copy when choice offered. my preference is to link.

 

once both folders show up in the right window you then need to change it's location to python 3.4/site-packages and link or copy them there in that folder too according to nigsy. so hit the back button twice to get to /usr/lib folder and then click on python 3.4 folder, click on site-packages and copy or link both fah folders there too.

 

and then you should be good to go, and just need to alter the config file so your folding with your chosen team and user name.

 

pretty sure you only needed to copy/link those files into just the newest python folder for things to work but nigsy says copy/link into both so that's what i've explained.

 

:b33r:

 

couldn't be bothered to work out the command to use in a terminal to do the exact same thing you've just accomplished using dolphin and drag and drop.

 

probably as root something like In -s path/to/copyfolder path/to/linkedfolder. :rofl3:

 

anyway that's how windows users are more familiar with doing things, it's also how i usually do things in linux too just because of my poor memory, besides it will also give you a better idea and understanding of navigating around roots file system. ;)

Looks to be working now!!

 

th_snapshot12_zpsqsijt96f.png

 

I was able to use the configure button on the FAHControl window to set name, team number and passkey.

 

So far temperatures are showing as ~53*F and ~85*F on the desktop display I added. Not sure if that's right, but it's the readout from lmsensors. According to the configure it shows the 53* one as lmsensors/radeon-pci-0008/temp1 and the 85* one as lmsensors/k10temp-pci-00c3/temp1

 

not sure, but i see most of the A series have a max temperature spec of 70*C and that would be 158*F so if the readout is right there should be a little wiggle room. i'll get a better cooler on there asap.

justin to get to root, just type in su and hit enter then you need to enter your password, you will know when your root because the colour turns red for location.

sudo does the same thing, gives you roots powers but only for that one command your entering.
su changes the terminal so everything you enter into it will be be with roots powers until you type exit to change it back to a users terminal.(in other words stays red until you exit.)

 

Another thing you could do if you're running 13.2 is click on the orange icon at the very right of the bottom toolbar and do "add widgets". Go to "Konsole Profiles" and it will give you an icon in your taskbar where you can choose to open terminal as user or root. I open root shell for doing zypper. It's a pain to have to sudo each command.
