In general you open up a program called "YaST2". It has an "Add/Remove" section, or "Package Manager". If you are connected to the Internet, you simply find, and select the program inside of YaST2, and then click "Install". Either that way, or find an "RPM". Instead of *.exe, Suse uses *.RPM files.

My instructions may not be 100% correct, but they should be close. I use Ubuntu, which has something called "Synaptic" instead of Yast2.

You will have to install Sun's Java 1.5, or later.

You can check the version of Java you have by typing 'java -version' [sic] in a Console, or Terminal (note the space "java -version').

Then double-click the 'ZebraTuner.bat' file. If it has Execute permissions, ZebraTuner will start.
