Trouble installing on opensuse
I could use some help getting whatpulse working on my opensuse partition.

I have installed opensuse i586, and i have downloaded correct version of whatpulse(32bit)

I have installed everything that i could find with the name libqt*
Neither of these are available in the opensuse repository
: openssl-devel (libssl-dev)
I did find libopenssl-devel however and installed that one
Screenshots of installed programs.

I ran the .sh believing that I had all the correct files. But as you can see on this screenshot it wasnt working. http://i.imgur.com/tuiRoFa.png

Suggestions on how I can solve this little mishap?

RE: Trouble installing on opensuse
The .sh script is a shell/bash script. Run it from your terminal. Also run the whatpulse client from terminal if you have any issues, it'll tell you whats wrong.

RE: Trouble installing on opensuse
Ok, I have just bashed right into a brickwall. I cant figure out what is wrong.
Permission denied even as root. Lulz. And i rebooted directly after installing libpcap-progs
And rebooted after the denied messages in case it wanted to be rebooted. No success.

Code:
kaveh@linux-8ya7:~/Desktop/whatpulse-linux-32bit-2.2.1> chmod +x setup-input-permissions.sh
kaveh@linux-8ya7:~/Desktop/whatpulse-linux-32bit-2.2.1> sudo ./setup-input-permissions.sh
root's password:
This script sets up read permissions for the kernel's event devices
in order for your user to be able to run WhatPulse. It will create a new
group called 'input', add your username to that group, and make the event
devices readable for the group. Press Ctrl+C now if you don't want this,
or press Return to continue.

/etc/udev/rules.d/99-whatpulse-input.rules already exists. Will not change it.
Group 'input' already exists!
Please enter the username that should get added to the group:
kaveh
Added user 'kaveh' to group 'input'.

Setup of persistent permission settings complete.

Since the UDEV rules will only be applied when you restart your
computer, this script will now apply temporary read permissions for all
users to the device files to let you use WhatPulse immediately. You have
the chance to cancel this by pressing Ctrl+C now (which you should do if
you fear that other users on your computer might log your keyboard
events!). Otherwise press Return to continue.

All done, have fun using WhatPulse!
kaveh@linux-8ya7:~/Desktop/whatpulse-linux-32bit-2.2.1> sudo cp whatpulse /opt/whatpulse
kaveh@linux-8ya7:~/Desktop/whatpulse-linux-32bit-2.2.1> sudo setcap cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin=eip /opt/whatpulse

If 'setcap' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf setcap
linux-8ya7:/home/kaveh/Desktop/whatpulse-linux-32bit-2.2.1 # cnf setcap
                      
The program 'setcap' can be found in the following package:
  * libcap-progs [ path: /sbin/setcap, repository: zypp (openSUSE-12.3-1.7) ]

Try installing with:
    zypper install libcap-progs

linux-8ya7:/home/kaveh/Desktop/whatpulse-linux-32bit-2.2.1 # zypper install libcap-progs

Program 'setcap' is present in package 'libcap-progs', which is installed on your system.

Absolute path to 'setcap' is '/sbin/setcap', so running it may require superuser privileges (eg. root).

linux-8ya7:/home/kaveh/Desktop/whatpulse-linux-32bit-2.2.1 # setcap cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin=eip /opt/whatpulse
linux-8ya7:/home/kaveh/Desktop/whatpulse-linux-32bit-2.2.1 # ln -s /opt/whatpulse /usr/local/bin/whatpulse

RE: Trouble installing on opensuse
Seems as though /opt/whatpulse is not chmod'ed to be executable. Chmod it and try again.

RE: Trouble installing on opensuse
I got 1 major bug after I rebooted the computer after the latest atempt to fix whatpulse in opensuse. The menu in lxde disappeared. And I know that whatpulse is not the program that created the bug. So I suppose that my installation of lxde in opensuse went bad somehow.

So I installed Manjaro with openbox instead. And voila, whatpulse worked like a charm.
Except that whatpulse cant recognize the touchpad, but I will look it up tomorrow.

RE: Trouble installing on opensuse
There's a post in the knowledge base (http://whatpulse.org/kb/) about Linux and touchpads, just search for it, there's a config file there for you to use.
