3rd party programs

  • Vmware – Installation as described in Setting up VMware on SUSE Linux
  • Crossover
    After the Installation of crossover Version 6 I could install MS Office 2003 without any problems. This is a great contrast to Suse 10.1 where crossover worked well, but did not integrate into the KDE Menu, so that it was quite unusable. Next I installed IE 6 to be able to test websites in Internet Explorer 6.
  • VPN Client
    My university offers a vpn connection to the IP network of the university. The Installation is described in VPN Client User Guide. The network is started with the command
    vpnclient connect Zugang_aus_dem_Internet_zur_Uni_Hannover
    This can be placed in a link on the desktop. This link must include the setting ‘run as root’.
