Re: terminal commands

I am struggling now <,< I'm trying to convert some code to install a classic that i love and cant seem to get there..
I need to add this line, but it doesn't do anything like i'm missing a part of code



sudo apt-add-repository ppa:hikariknight/unix-runescape-client
Then after that I would need to run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unix-runescape-client

I am assuming the conversion of that is

sudo eopkg ar ppa:hikariknight/unix-runescape-client
( Which this is where it does nothing, prompts help screen )

then after that i would need to run

sudo eopkg ur
sudo eopkg rr unix-runescape-client


How close am i to getting this done correctly?
( I am a complete noob, this is what i have pieced together roughly. )

This is not the way to go. You cannot add debian/ubuntu repositories to Solus as they are very different. Also this has very little to do with terminals commands here what you really want to know is how to install a specific application, so next time it's better to open a new topic when you want to initiate a new discussion so people who will search for this specific topic won't be confused by a big mix of many different things !

The official repository for the application you want to install is here. I see they have installers. You may try RSU-linux-x64-installer.run.zip if all the prerequisites can be met.

An alternative if you think other people may be interested in this application and if you don't want to have to worry about installing future updates manually is to make a package request. This process is the easiest as all you have to do is to introduce a proper request, but it may take some time until the application is available (have to pass the approval flow, be packaged, be tested and finally added in the Solus repository).

Genec! Thanks for the tip on clicompanion and the solus oriented commands list.

This is just what I needed to get more comfortable and productive in the cli.
