stop beating Fedora packages into an openSUSE system.
The application (I assume you mean ChartGeany: is
neither open source, nor does it provide packages for openSUSE. Trying

@Jan, If you speak up, please try to be helpful, not dismissive. The

@ellianos82 on openSUSE, the library is called and respectively. You can try to place symbolic links by

And that's why this approach - being as old as Linux distribution
themselves - is usually a bad idea, because the incompatibility may
never be reported by the program, then eating your data and whatnot…
