    Is it still relevant? I can't tag you, George. Will close it out due to inactivity, feel free to reach out, if this problem is not resolved yet.

    1. I am attempting to install the cloud developer tools on an OpenSUSE 15.2 workstation.

    2. The install throws an error message. gjjohnson@p520c:~> curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/IBM-Cloud/ibm-cloud-developer-tools/master/linux-installer/idt-installer | bash [main] --==[ IBM Cloud Developer Tools for Linux/MacOS - Installer, v1.2.3 ]==-- [main] WARN: Linux has only been tested on Ubuntu, RedHat, Centos, Debian and Fedora distrubutions please let us know if you use this utility on other Distros which: no ibmcloud in (/home/gjjohnson/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin) [install] Starting Update... which: no ibmcloud in (/home/gjjohnson/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin) [install] Note: You may be prompted for your 'sudo' password during install.

    3. This is running in a BASH terminal window

    Steps to reproduce the issue

    1. Open BASH window

    2. Execute this command: curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/IBM-Cloud/ibm-cloud-developer-tools/master/linux-installer/idt-installer | bash

    3. Script throws error: ERROR: This script has not been updated for use with your linux distribution ("openSUSE Leap 15.2")

    Is it possible to provide support on the cloud developer tools for SUSE Linux?
