I installed in Mageia 3 this RPM packages (for OpenSUSE) and it worked fine. It is standalone package, do not install other dependencies and installs correctly an icon in the "application launcher menu", in "Graphics" and "More".

I reopen report into a backport request.

Component: New RPM package request => Backports

Comment 2 Rémi Verschelde 2016-07-11 10:13:01 CEST
Backport requests are for packages that already exist in Cauldron, which is not the case here.

Component: Backports => New RPM package request

Hi Rémi Verschelde,
Excuse, it was my mistake.
You're right

The license of ODA doesn't allow anymore the distribution of this software. They changed their licensing/pricing modell. One has to register at their site to get a 60 day trial version. Distribution of it is not allowed.

You have to pay cash to get a properly licensed version.


Closing WONT.

Resolution: (none) => WONTFIX
