you can download an rpm for Opensuse 11.4/12.1 from this page.

So I tried this, since I'd already gotten Mark's message and downloaded the rpm
before I got Werner's message. I tried from both Konqueror, letting it send
the file to apper, and from yast. Same result both times: a hanging alert box
saying "waiting for server to start" and a field saying "license agreement

Next, I tried from the command line (now obvious why neither K nor Yast worked):

Bad package? or what?

While I'm waiting to hear from someone, I'll go ahead and try to sort through
the two-dozen VB packages in Werner's reference. (or, if someone can give me
some guidance...:-)
