Regina for openSUSE Leap

Regina now offers openSUSE packages through online package repositories. This helps openSUSE to find and install dependencies automatically. It also helps with security, since the repository is cryptographically signed.

To install Regina and keep up-to-date with the newest version, follow these instructions.

You only need to follow these steps the first time you install Regina. After this, openSUSE's package manager will handle upgrades for you, just like for any other openSUSE package.

  1. Open a terminal (e.g., Konsole or GNOME Terminal).

  2. Add Regina to your list of package repositories. To do this, type the line below, replacing VERSION with your openSUSE Leap version (currently only 15.2 is supported):

    sudo zypper addrepo https://people.debian.org/~bab/rpm/regina/opensuse/VERSION/regina.repo

    For example, if you are running openSUSE 15.2, you would type:

    sudo zypper addrepo https://people.debian.org/~bab/rpm/regina/opensuse/15.2/regina.repo

  3. Update the list of available packages. To do this, type:

    sudo zypper refresh

    You will be asked to import Regina's cryptographic signing key. Check that the fingerprint is correct (the correct fingerprint is shown at the bottom of this page), and then select trust always.

  4. Install Regina. To do this, type:

    sudo zypper install regina-normal

That's all! You can now keep Regina up to date in the same way that you manage your other openSUSE packages.

The fingerprint for Regina's cryptographic signing key is shown below (see the line in bold). If you wish to examine the key more carefully, including its links into the web of trust, you can download it here.
