Description William Sjöblom cendio 2021-08-16 16:29:36 CEST
As of now, tl-setup does not automatically install dependencies on openSUSE

We should consider a fix for this since it improves the initial user experience
of the product and that the packages available on Leap is a superset of those
available on SLES (which we currently support) [1], making it an easy
change. Thus, supporting Leap is likely just a matter of detecting it as being
in the `SLES` distribution family (similar to how we detect CentOS as being in
the `RHEL` distribution family). They also follow the same major version
numbering scheme.

python3-ldap is actually installed automatically even on openSUSE 15 leap.

But our required libs and binaries are not. GTK+ and PyGObject are also not installed automatically.
Comment 2 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2021-08-20 16:36:51 CEST
The GTK+ and PyGObject packages that contain what we need on openSUSE 15 leap are:

 python3-gobject-Gdk typelib-1_0-Gtk-3_0

Seeing as those are not obvious, a PSN was added for that:

I ran into this issue on SLES12 where I got an error when attempting to install the Python LDAP module, with the following in /var/log/tlsetup.log

In text mode, I could just continue with the installation, but in graphical mode, the "Forward" button was greyed out. I could still progress with the installation by pressing "Back" and unticking "Automatically install the necessary packages"
