[Gambas-user] Installing Gambas on Suse

During the last weeks, I have been installing new Suse Leap 42.3 systems 
a few times.

At first, I wondered why sometimes some of the Gambas parts were 
missing, sometimes not. I found that when I install via Yast, you must 
click on the first element ("Gambas3") and then scroll down the list all 
down to the bottom to click on the graphical part. Only that will 
activate all the elements in between. And then you have to click on the 
last one too if you want to have the Scripter.

On the one hand, I have seen this before with other programs in Yast, 
sometimes it is hard to decide what is important to be installed, and 
there is no way to say "All the important stuff".

On the other hand, I would expect a lot of newcomers to Gambas going the 
way over the Yast install function, so this is my idea for the 
maintainers of the Suse repo. Maybe it is possible to ease this a bit by 
adding a "Complete install" choice at the beginning of the list which 
will add all parts automagically.
