On my search for a binary of the JOE editor I cannot find one for Suse Linux, but for Debian, Redhat and others. And what is even worse, these version are very old.
Where can I find a binary of JOE current version and how can I install it on a Suse Linux?
The best way to get a JOE binary is to build it yourself. The source is portable enough that it should work with any standard Linux distribution. Simply download the source, go there (in a terminal), and run the following commands:
tar -xzf joe-3.5.tar.gz
rm -rf joe-3.5*
That will install JOE at /usr/local. If you don't have write permission there, or you want to install JOE somewhere else, then add the argument "--prefix=/some/other/path" to "./configure".
