SUSE Linux Enterprise as supported OS

SUSE Linux Enterprise is one of the major Enterprise Linux versions.
Just as relevant to support as Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Will you consider to make this a supported OS?

We can confirm that the Blue Jeans Browser plugin (RPM version) is working out-of-the-box on the latest SUSE Linux Enterprise v. 11 SP3. We have tested with Firefox.

However we do see some minor issues where the flash plugin crashes and a reconnect is necessary. From what we can tell, the issue is related to the sound system and the plugin crashes, if the selected sound device is temporary occupied by another program or system service. Most of the time its working and therefore I expect that you could relatively easily fix these minor issues and open for support of SUSE Linux Enterprise as well.

I would definitely suggest you switch to Red Hat, its a much better OS anyway ;) that being said +1 to supporting more linux distros.

I have users extracting the rpm and installing it on ARCH linux among others, perhaps a binary installer would help.

@Kevin - We have passed this to our Engineering/QA team to get involved, test and debug the SuSE distribution more closely. We will update you on this thread as we try and improve the experience through SuSE Linux Enterprise distribution.

@Ash - We hear you as well and will follow up here on ARCH.

ALL OTHER CUSTOMERS, please post all Linux flavors you would use to connect with Blue Jeans. Currently we support Linux versions:
    • 64-bit versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and above,
    • Fedora 12 and above, and
    • 64-bit Ubuntu (12.04 LTS and above). 
    • [Note: Only 64 bit version on Linux is currently supported]

Thanks - I really appreciate it! Let me know if you need anything from us to get further with the SUSE Linux test. We can provide you a trial subscription to test with if needed, so that you can test on a fully updated system.
