You are probably missing some dependencies. Try starting rainlendar from the terminal and see what error do you get.

I am a new-be to Linux

I can use [Open Terminal Here] from Dolphin, but have no idea what command-line to use to run Rainlander2.

Exactly what would the command line be when you are already in the correct folder

If you are in the same folder where Rainlendar is located you can start it like this:

Code:

./rainlendar2

Thanks.

You are correct, results so far:

tecknomage@linux-h9z4:~/bin/rainlendar2> ./rainlendar2
./rainlendar2: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Had to use YaST and install libpng12.so.0

Next....

tecknomage@linux-h9z4:~/bin/rainlendar2> ./rainlendar2
./rainlendar2: error while loading shared libraries: librtmp.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

...but YaST does NOT have librtmp.so in the repositories.

Looks like Rainlendar package assumes shared packages are on your system already, which they should not. All packages should be included in a package if they are required to run the program

So, how do I get ALL the shared libraries required?

Usually the package manager takes care of installing the depending packages automatically but since Suse doesn't use the DEB packaging you have to handle this manually. If the libraries are not available in the Suse's package repository your options are either to find the binary package from some other location or compile the missing library yourself from the sources. I don't have any experience in OpenSuse so I don't know how easy it is to install packages outside Yast.
