I have a problem with SUSE 12 zypper.

I need to install an unsigned package with zypper in non-interactive mode from script. Unfortunately, zypper version is 1.13 and there is no option for flag --allow-unsigned-rpm. So I've been trying to "pipe" output of the printf command into zypper, but having no luck so far.

Here is an example of what I am doing:

printf "y\ni\n" | sudo zypper install UNSIGNED_RPM_PATH_HERE

What am I doing wrong? This pipe works for every other script I tried to write myself.

Found "solution" to my problem. I edit /etc/zypp/zypp.conf file while my script executes. You can add pkg_gpgcheck = off to turn off signature checks.
