I just installed OpenSUSE and set everything up. But I am wondering if OpenSUSE use .deb files to install. If it's possible, how can I do? Can I just use alien?


Use .rpm files or load from community repositories. 499 out of 500 times, the package will be available from a repository registered at the OpenBuildService

For that 1 out of 500 occurrence, where in addition there is no .rpm, alien allows conversion of .deb packages to .rpm. See description here.

  • The website is part of the Suse infrastructure, and it is online now. – Doug0 Sep 19 '17 at 2:43
