using which installer?

I don't know for sure, it happens with Gnome, I suppose being the
default Gnome software installer!

For you does it works? In Gnome it works?

Most of us use the default openSUSE installer, not the Gnome installer.
That is, YaST.
And of course it works.


I will give it a try and post the result.


Tried with package installer, software installer, Yast installer... All

Which installer is hidden behind your opensuse-installer please?

rpm is the package installer for openSUSE.

In order for anyone to help you, specific information must be provided as
to what you are doing. Go into detail. The description you have provided
leaves much to the crystal ball and mine is very broken, ie: the car
shakes when I turn left (car is a 1954 three wheel Fiat).

All of the "package installers" I have tried that are intended for
openSUSE work and, although I normally only utilize rpm and zypper, I have
used apper and YaST{2} successfully.

I believe I have provided more details at the beginning of this thread.

The issue I face is attempting to install an RPM package simply by
double clicking on it, or better attempting to download from a remote
site and install (Oracle VirtualBox new versions is the specific case).

All the software manager I selected from "open-with" option in Nautilus
have failed.

I think the user control over the type o file is not fully available in
Nautilus which offers just some suggested applications, nor is proposed
a way to create an "ad-hoc" script to run a program as for example "sudo
yast --update RPM", or at least this is not visible for the user.

Very disappointed!
