Tip: installing NoMachine on the Raspberry Pi

If you have installed openSUSE on the Raspberry Pi and intend to use it as a server, installing NoMachine on it can be useful for you to have easy remote access to it. If you intend to use your Raspberry Pi as a desktop, NoMachine can be useful as well to remotely access a server that has NoMachine installed. 

Installing NoMachine on a Raspberry Pi is as easy as installing NoMachine on a desktop or server compatible with the IBM PC architecture. You just need to be aware that, when installing NoMachine on the Raspberry Pi 4, its architecture is different (ARMv8). Therefore, the RPM package that you are going to download is in a slightly different location.

You can now continue with the NoMachine how-to by the Installation section.

Finding the server’s IP address

Notice that NoMachine has added an icon to the XFCE status tray, at the bottom right of the screen. It is already running and ready to be used:
