Is possible to install the StackApplet on my Fedora 16 (under KDE) ?

Its stackapps.com site has an .rpm package for RedHat-based distributions, like Fedora. Have you tried this? – sr_ Apr 27 '12 at 8:04

You can download the RPM here.

I successfully installed the noarch RPM on my FC16 KDE environment.

sudo yum localinstall /path/to/stackapplet-1.5-2.noarch.rpm


sudo rpm -Uvh "https://launchpad.net/stackapplet/1.5/1.5/+download/stackapplet-1.5-2.noarch.rpm"

The applet shows up in the system widget on my panel.

Emmm, with the last command, how can I install my stackapplet? Is it only to download? – Brallan Aguilar Apr 27 '12 at 18:58
The rpm command will download and install. You need to run with sudo or as root. I've added quotes around the URL. My fault. The yum command assumes you have already downloaded the RPM. – uther Apr 27 '12 at 18:59
Thank you! On other hand, if the applet was updated, I can only update my own applet or I must download again? – Brallan Aguilar Apr 27 '12 at 19:08
You can run the command rpm -Uvh "http://launchpad.net/stackapplet/some-new-version.rpm" and it will upgrade your currently installed RPM. – uther Apr 27 '12 at 19:11
And for example, exist a form to add to my Fedora repositories for only when I execute yum update, obtain the newest version? – Brallan Aguilar Apr 27 '12 at 19:14
